I think this auction is better. (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=200220398466&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT&ih=010)
But, it is a good looking garage door.
Generally the scammers do not want PayPal.

Might be a guy who wants to unload his bike (for gas money). I wouldn't take a return either, person to person.
Paypal is a safer method than Western Union or personal checks.
Doesn't smell like a scam. Best to ask questions, like "Why are you selling it?" Etc.

To the OP....Its listed as "Keller, Texas". About 5 miles from me. If you are really interested PM me.

I'd guess the auction is for real. That Fuji is not exactly the sexiest bike out there to be scamming people on. Also, whoever posted the description seems to know what they're talking about, listing custom upgrades, not just Fuji catalog cut-and-paste. In spite of other warning signs, I'd say this auction is legit.

Did you pursue this bike?
I had a pang of serious jealousy this weekend when I met a guy through a friend who bought an early all cro-mo Bianchi Volpe with down-tube shifters from Craig's for $200.... And his other bike is a Look 595... All his Volpe needed was a bar-end shifter up-grade... which only cost 70 bucks to make a perfect bike.
There's no justice in life is there? When will my Craig's ship come in? Er Bike, I mean. The all-ultegra Orbea Lobular wasn't for me at 800... Too racy for this Fred.
