I thought I saw these photos of this build up in this forum recently. I can't imagine the builder would be selling for this price so soon.
The seller has a heap of bikes all listed from the same day; all with different backgrounds- it looks a bit suspect. Does anybody recognise this bike from the forum also?

It's a scam. Report it. The seller has zero feedback, and is in China. He is advertizing it on the Oz EBay site but will only ship to the USA lower 48. To top it off, payment is via wire transfer.

Well, you're dealing with someone who has Zero feedback. That means they have never purchased anything on ebay, but now they are selling. Of course, they could have bought or sold on ebay before, using a different identity, so why would they need another identity? Hmmm. Additionally, you will be purchasing outside of your native country, that limits your legal protection if its a scam. IMHO, I would pass this up if you have doubts. But that's just my opinion.

The price isn't even good enough to want to think about taking the risk.
Western Union is the scammers method of choice... and so is this guys... the second best option for a scam is wire transfer... same here... and scammers HATE personal checks and paypal... which this guy doesn't accept. If he's not a scammer, he sure does a great impersonation of one.
