Minor cosmetic damage? Maybe it was damaged in transit or something Something doesn't smell right though.

Called the guy. He said frame was scratched during transit so the dealership couldn't sell it. He works for said dealership but wouldn't disclose which dealership over the phone. Said he would disclose that information upon purchase of the bike along with some paperwork from the dealership but only a Bill of sale from him and not from the dealership.

Not sure what protocol is if something like that were to happen. Still sounds a little sketchy to me. He's also in west Houston. Chimney rock and belfort I think he said. Bike is at his house, said I can come look at it this weekend lol.

Re: Weird C/L ad, stolen from dealership?

According to Brian at Stubbs. There was in fact, one commentative edition totaled during transit to dealership. Just don't know which dealership and how it ended up at this guy's house.

, if dealerships give away bikes to associates that have been totalled, I need a new job. LOL. "Hey boss, looks like we got another RSV4 that got banged up on the truck. What's that? Sure, I'll take it."

He could have bought it from the shippers insurance company and is selling it legit but it will have a salvage title.

I think this guy sells a bunch of bikes from home. Pretty sure I've seen other ads from him.

**edit: nevermind, don't think it's the same guy. Pretty fishy still.

Not a chance.

-No Tittle
-No Bill of Sale
-Obviously no Warranty
-Payment in Cash

I don't think this is an insurance fraud situation, it is obvious this guy wants to get rid of it ASAP. If it were insurance fraud he might even put a few miles in it, ride it around a bit and put the price a bit higher (MSRP is $14K). At 10K with a few miles this would still be a treat. But he wants it out and about immediately. The dealer must have reported it stolen, but this can take a few days for the VIN to get registered in the police's stolen vehicle system. That gives him a head start. at $8K, its a bargain, profits $8K immediately and disappears.

No. I would not go near it. This bike is hot and someone is looking for it, bet the actual owner would love to get his hands on this info, if its a deal you might even get some complementary gifts for the help.

Nice bike though.

I asked him about a salvage title. He said no. No title of any kind. Just a Bill of sale. Smells like fish

Whomever picks this one up is getting what they deserve for being a dumbass. Wouldn't touch it if he was giving it away free.

Well, the dealer has to title it so since it was damaged in shipping, they never did more than likely. So that's why it wouldn't have one. Kinda makes sense. Someone will end up buying it. The parts could get that much alone.

Are you serious Mike? If so post up some pictures and tell us how it goes.

Good to know. Some of the stuff he said seemed legit. Just so used to the "if its to good to be true, it probably is" that's a steal right there.

, now I want it!
