I just sent him an e-mail asking where the trike was located so I could see it.

By the way Steve...how do you like the DFT? When my time comes that will be my choice. PM me if you wish.

I've got a Motor Trike,and I like it alot,I'm a Bike,and now a Trike guy too,I like quite a few of the "Trike Kits" that are available ,so much so that I've got my "Dealer" OK for here in the Portland area,I've been working on Street bike and Drag bike's for about 30 years now,if it's got 2 wheels or 3 wheels I can find something I like about it. :D

There is a fool born every minute and the scammers know it.

If it looks too good to be true, it is.

Ride safe.

Late last year one of our posters sent this to our group. His hobby is bantering back and forth with the boys from Nigeria. It is so funny and unbelievable how he strings them along and they won't give up wanting him to sent them money...

WOW, what bargain. $4,500 for a $24,000+ trike. I see he is new to ebay and this is his first item for sale. He just signed up last Friday. If you let eBay know, they will delete the ad.

This looks like a good deal and as soon as I get my $8,500,000 from Abdula El Kawanis for helping him get his $50,000,000 out of Nigera, I will buy this jewel. I wish he would hurry with the money, I have only been waiting 3 1/2 years for it...do you think it will come? Perhaps the $10,000 in good faith money I sent him was not enough...I will send another $5,000...

Reporting scam auctions is really easy; just go to the bottom of the auction and click on "report this item."

I wish I had the time to play with these scammers... like the ebola monkey man. That site is hilarious.

I find an average of 8-10 scammers a week on ebay trying to sell goldwings or trikes for 5 times less then market value.....

I make it a mission to report em.... :twisted: Some times it takes a few hours to a day to get the ad off...

Most have that free shipping and preapproved requirement. I have seen a lot of those pictures already on ebay from previous sells...Think they call em spoofs...where they hijack your page or copy it or something like that....

May a thousand hornets invade em!!! :twisted:

Steve, the $5,000 is in the mail. Please sign the loan paper and return it. I think the 22% interest compounded semi-daily is fair.

For all. I wish to change my filter and not my oil with every filter change. IF I remove the filter without draining the oil, will I have a big mess, like all four quarts draining out on my barn floor? I use Mobil 1 synthetic and would like to change the filter +/- 4K and the oil and filter at 8K. What mess am I looking at?

Thanks

Steve, I don't know where else, and you can even buy some 2 wheelers from the same individual for ridiculously low prices. I knew it was your bike when I saw it, because I was watching the sale when you bought it. Not bidding, just watching. :lol: I don't know how these people keep posting these items, apparently e-bay does not pay attention to anything except their fees.

Live to ride, ride to live.

Ebay

I will never understand why anyone would by anything from Ebay without touching it first. Now I have a used car for sale, driven by a little old lady as a welcome wagon in a neighborhood that never developed. Low mileage. - - - the ole geezer

I've bought some big ticket items, including a couple Goldwings, based solely on pictures and descriptions with no problems. Of course, as with anything, one needs to exercise due diligence in their dealings. I confirm that I'm dealing with the owner through BMV records, contact a third party to do a physical inspection and a host of other safeguards.

Those Ebay scams are SOOO easy to spot that I'm amazed anyone falls for them, but I'm sure it happens.
