How much would those items be usually sold for on say ebay/craigslist? If the selling price was way below an expected level it does look dodgy. Criminals tend to be able to sell items cheap as they obtained them for free.
However, this dude could be legit and realised he needed some cash and in his house were a couple of keen cyclists with money in their pockets.
If they were stolen it would be very unwise (for him) to sell from his home.
If you suspect they were nicked don't buy. Was the seller wearing a black and white hooped shirt and a black mask?
