Would love to hear back from whoever checks this place out further

Ran across these after a quick google search of the repo temple. Nothing too conclusive, but some food for thought.

scamscamscamscamscamscam

stay away...proof?

1. they wont provide the vin numers
2. do some research on the address..you'll find an empty lot or a some random shiz like a dry cleaners


on the R6 forums, somebody went through a post like this...looked it up on google maps/earth...it was an empty lot. THEN i was joking around like i was gonna run the vins...and some shady dude contacted me via facebook me from florida asking if i ran the plates...after i said it was a joke..never heard back

I'll let ya know if they respond. I would be willing to drive to Florida for some of the deals I saw. But I'd like actual photos first and no shipping.

If it's real, maybe a group trip to Fl. is in order.
ROAD TRIP!

i checked the site out and it has a private domain registration preventing someone from seeing the personal information of the registrant. If you had a business with a physical location and had nothing to hide wouldnt you have your address posted?

the site was created 8-25-08 so it hasn't been up very long,, someone call and i guarantee he'll want about 2900 down,, paid with western union.

Well, we will see how/if they respond to my inquiry. With those prices you wouldn't think they'd need to advertise much farther than locally! Lol

its not legit, its a scam, first the addy in ismoranda is on a friggin caleche road second the ONLY way to get the bike is thru "shipping" third it tells you to use an uninsured third party financial service for payment and last but not least the "shippers" website has been closed down! if you still think this is legit I do infact have ocean front property in sunny North Dakota that I'd be willing to have you put a downpayment on of only 1500 per acre!
