It appears that you sold this but have re-listed it. You really should spend a few minutes with some soapy water and clean the bike some, then take better photos in enough light to actually see it well and not be blinded by the camera flash on the bike's reflectors. You'd also be well advised (as others have said) to at least watch a few videos about bike packing prior to shipping or you're likely to end up with some unhappy buyers.... Good luck!

thanks for the advice I think that's what I'm going to do clean up each bike before I list it.

Yes there was a problem with what the buyer was charged for shipping so therefore I had to cancel the order. I'm going to take everyone's advice and take a little time to clean the bikes up but I have a phone that isn't the greatest for taking pictures but thats all I have thanks for the advice all 🙂
