I found this a couple days ago, does this seem legit to you guys?

http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/744760338.html

I emailed him asking where hes located and he responded about how the bikes never been down, ect.. But nothing about where hes located.

EMAIL: The bike is in perfect condition , it has never been involved in accidents so it has no damages.Mostly, garage kept because I didn't have time to drive it as much as I wanted. Because I was the first owner I took care of it and never put it in a race or drive it madly. The bike has a clean title and it will come with all original keys and manuals. If you want to know anything about the bike feel free and ask and I will respond you in the shortest time possible.

Just for a limited edition, low miles bike it seems fishy.

Couple of key things.

1. Not answering your question.

2. Describing riding "madly" reeks of another country.

Just tell him u wanna look at it. You'll find out right away if its a scam.

first!

The bike is in perfect condition , it has never been involved in accidents so it has no damages.Mostly, garage kept because I didn't have time to drive it as much as I wanted. Because I was the first owner I took care of it and never put it in a race or drive it madly. The bike has a clean title and it will come with all original keys and manuals. If you want to know anything about the bike feel free and ask and I will respond you in the shortest time possible.






second!

Currently my bike is at one of the Online Outpost stores, one of the best eBay selling services. You will have to make payment to them in a protected account and you will benefit of 10 days inspection period. If you won't be satisfied you will have the chance to return it and you will receive the down payment back. I would need your full name, address and phone number so i can put you in touch with the Online Outpost. I hope i made myself clear regarging this sale and i'm expecting your answer shortly.


and i got this two times i emailed him about it !

They're written English always leaves much to be desired. Granted, not all Americans have the best English either, but it's a good tell when you get an email that says "it has never been involved in accidents so it has no damages."
