Tim from craiglists. experience?

does anyone have experience buying bikes from this guy named tim from craigslists? if you browse the motorcycle section regularly on craigslists, you know who i'm talking about. the bikes he lists are usually great looking and at a decent price. i'm very tempted to move on a bike he currently has for sale. is there anything I should be aware of with this seller?

1) where's porter?
2) title status?
3) seems awful cheap, sounds too good to be true, and often when that the case, somethings up.

yep.. he's been posting bikes for sale for a looooong time on craigslist so i'm thinking someone on here must have dealt with him before.

i called him once asking why it was so cheap... he buys and flips bikes all the time for money.

+1 - seems almost too good to be true! I've actually emailed with him in the past, i was going to buy a gsxr from him one time, but he had just sold it when I emailed him. dont know much except for the fact that he has been on CL for a while and still going.
Just inspect it thoroughly and check to make sure the S/N matches on both frame and motor and run it to make sure its clean!

+1 spoke with him a few times about a bike. Seems like he has had alot of business from craigslist. Porter is a few exits past kingwood off of 59. Not too far from me.

He looks like he photo shopped the bike because if you look at the second picture on the right to me the head light looks to be the wrong shape and diminsions for a 2006 R6.

Also if you look closely at any picture on the left side of the bike it looks like he did some photo editing to me.

It is the top right photo on the ad that has the wrong shaped head light.
