Except for the price, it looks like he's legit. He has a tractor for sale too. He's boughten a couple of things, but these are his first sales. At first, I thought it was flakey, beacuse he said you could "buy it now," but had no Buy It Now radio button. Then I remebered that you have to have a higher-grade seller status to be able to offer an ebay buy-it-now option. Also, many spam filters do weed out e-bay messages. However, all that being said, if it smells hinkey, it might be hinkey...and steer clear accordingly.

I dont know, it seems real fishy. He has 2 good seller reviews, and no one has bid on it. For such a great deal you'd think someone would have bidden by now, something seems off. Hmm. That would be a great deal though, even at 1200.

If you are interested you could always e-mail him and ask for a picture of the bottom bracket including the serial number. Then you will know that he has the bike plus you can also check with the stolen bike registry (can't think of the website) to make sure it isn't stolen.

umm...yeah. It would be a great deal just for the frame.

Not to mention the $2,500 worth of parts bolted to it.
