CL listing

Long time lurker. Im interested in a folding bike. Saw the listing on CL for a tern verge p9 on the SF Bay Area CL listings. I canít post the link since I need 10 posts before I can Link anything.

I might be interested in buying it, but I wanna know what you guys think of the listing if itís legit or not and what kind of questions should I ask the seller?




Iím not sure if thatís a normal price for a used bike sale on CL for that bike or if itís too good to be true.




Any thoughts and advice is appreciated

It could be a recalled bike.

Thanks

Well, he's got the receipt so it's not stolen =). Check the age and condition, but honestly, I often see bikes underpriced in Cupertino on CL. Less competition for folders than in the City.
