Craigslist scam?

Can someone post the pictures of the bike? It looks to be an all china bike and he is claiming it is a modded and built bike. Does not look like a BBR frame to me and the rest looks like . It may be a complete SSR bike.I dont think that bike has any of the parts on it that he is claiming cept the klx number plate and the bar pad that he is taking back off with the bike.

For sale is my klx110/ssr/bbr mod pitbike. I've been building it for over a year now.
It is a 2010 bbr frame with 2011 ssr forks, brakes, and rims. 4 speed with clutch, hansen hd clutch kit.
has a fast 50s rev box, klx harness, 2013 klx 110 front number plate and fender (custom mounted), brand new renthal R1 chain and sprokets.
has fair rubber with plenty of tread left, new tag handle bars and new red ogio grips. gripper seat cover with high seat foam. hd foot pegs.
has new did bearings in the tripple clamps and the hubs. *** renthal bar pad not included in sale.
suspention was set up by a close friend who happens to be a veteran race tech certified suspention tech, its smooth and rides good, very even.
all hardware for the bike was bought at fastenal and it was built right here in my garage. it could use a new air filter. runs strong though starts right up.
One of kind bike, solid and realiable, this isnt a bs chinese bike its reliable and smooth.

here is the best pic of the bike itself. it might be legit, just a chinese re-make of a popular bike from the 80s or 90s im not too familiar with generations of dirt bikes. didnt read the ad either so cant help much there.

me personally, i wouldnt purchase this bike to me it sounds like the PO just had the top end rebuilt, or possibly the bike wasnt running, and he slapped it back together to get the sucker running again and is putting a semi-low price tag on it to get rid of it as fast as he can and re-coup as much money as he can.

If i were you i'd be looking for a stock canvas to work with, not someones franken-stein piece of

That is not even a klx motor. It is a chonda motor. Looks like guy bought bike and now wants more money than he spent on it after riding the out of it.

Just me off that he is claiming it is something it is not. Was going to flag it but not before it is posted here. Guy might be on this on here. I would never do want to deal with him.

John you need a GOOD tmgp bike, not that one.

I have two klx110's right now. Need to find some street rubber and saftey wire them to race but I can maybe only afford to race some endurace with a team. Cheap racing. Sprinting would be fun.

The pics and description don't give me feeling of confidence. I'd probably steer away from it.

Maybe I should not have put a question mark in my title. The bike is not what he claims at all and is not built. It is a stock bike with a klx front fender, number plate, bar pad and some red grips.
