How about these quotes from the seller

On the cheaper one....
Quote:
This sell new for $10,000.00.
And on the other....

Quote:
This bike new, will sell for $12,000.00
WHAT ????
And one says it's a 2002 (but also says '92 under that)

He also seems to have bought the bike for $1800...

Did ya alert eBay to it?

EDIT: Looks like we were thinkin' the same things there, Lancer !

I don't know if it is actually fraud. Might have to contact Ebay on that. What is interesting is that they state that the bike sells for $12,000 new.
Another interesting point is that they just bought this bike on July 6 off of Ebay for $1800. Looks like he is trying to make at least a $900 profit.

Not sure how to report to Ebay, I have never done that before.
I did think it was strange though.

Some sellers will list items twice sometimes in two diff. categories instead of just one auction in several categories. They will stagger them like this one is so they can watch and see which one gets more bids. Just before the one they listed first is set to expire they decide which one to cancel. E-bay won't care (twice the listing fee is charged/paid for starters and it can't be refunded if seller cancels the auction) as long as they don't both end with winning bids and the seller does not honor one of them. I see he has 2 diff. locations listed also.
It is kind of odd- but it happens quite frequently on E-bay. Normally folks won't want to pay E-bays fees for selling vehicles more than one time. Most people actually freak over E-bays vehicle listing fees.

Nope--I thought about that too. 10K Canadian is $9544.72 12K Canadian is $11453.66 either way he is still too high.

Hey, with that chain of thought I think my 1990 Vn750 should sell for somewhere around $18,500 or so just because it is soo different :-)
