Yeah there are some scams out there. I am not sure what there game is. I found my 600 at cycletrader and there were some of the those same "too good to be true deals". You should be able to find 02's for $5K.

some are cheap just because newer bikes coming out and the chain of what hot and whats not is the 750 03 that is. Its still a great bike but the 04 is better hence the price drop

cheap

yeah i know that alot of them are scams thats one reason i dont buy off of ebay. cause there are just way to many scammers on there. hopefully i can find some good bikes for a decent price. im not looking for show room condition cause there our first bikes anyways, but i also dont want something thats been wrecked. is there a site that lets you look up the value of a bike? kinda like kelly blue book stuff?

kelly blue book recently entered a partnership with cyclevantage to do exactly what you are describing. It should give you some idea as to what to expect. It's sorta hidden on www.kbb.com, but if you look around on the bottom of the page, I think it's down there somewhere.

basicly its called a Nigeria Counterfeit Cashier’s Check .. because that is where it orginated from...

how ever typically these days the people using this scam are from east europe somewhere...

basicly never take a cashiers check for more then the purchase price and if the deal is to good to be true then it most likely is...


BTW when people tell you to send money western union under someone elses name they don't know but give them the transaction # to prove you sent it, they can access the money with only that #....

So they will take the money and run pretty much!

my friend got an '03 gixxer 750 from some guy in florida that had a 'polished frame', various 'stunt bike' mods, and no VIN number because it was 'new parts on a wrecked bike frame' for $3k. it was definatly.. definatly.. stolen. the guy couldn't come up with a title after he promised to ship it up when he found it. either way we still got $3k worth of use out of it stunting in lots....

there are deals out there to be had...i have a friend that got an 03 gix 1000 and another bike with it,cant recall what it was now,but the man that sold it to him literally scared the crap outta himself on the 1000,im guessing he prolly came very close to harming himself badly..he sold both bikes for 8 grand cash,they were both brand new,less than 5oo miles on either one. but on the other hand...scams are out there,,i found a bike a few months back on ebay,race gixxer,guy claimed it to be in mint condition with a newly rebuilt motor,granted it wasnt street legal by any means but regardless i contacted the guy..placed my bid for $3500..fully not expecting a reply as i figured it to be on the extreme low side...and wouldnt ya know it...i was highest bidder...wtf is what im thinking at this point as the pics look mint. i began emailing this guy several times over the next few days,trying to get more info on the bike,now im not saying he was scamming me..but i firmly believe in you get what you pay for...and this seemed to good to be real. he was kinda vague in answering all my questions so i did the ole gut check and it said walk away...i still wonder if i threw away a good deal. check out the pics,lemme know what ya think.

Who have you met that was born in the USA that talks like that :funny: and uses the caps lock. You know why they use caps lock? Because they don't know how to capitalize or punctuate. Notice the spaces before the punctuation. Who from the US, selling in the US has to tell you the currency is USD?
