Angry Bikers Planet

Do not patronize this seller. They advertise one thing and ship another and DO NOT answer repeated emails for a refund. They are an ebay seller.

I ordered a set of stainless screws for the Master Cylinder cover, they shipped me a set of screws that might fit a toy but certainly not this bike. I emailed and asked for an exchange or refund, that was 13 days ago, a second email was sent 3 days ago, and an email to Ebay asking for assistance all with zero results. Fortunately, I am only out $10 bucks with shipping - but this may keep someone else from being out a lot more. Chalk it up to lesson learned.

Sorry to hear you got ripped, if you have an ACE Hardware in your area they will have the SS screws, about a buck a piece. Take one with you to match up.

I'd go through the complaint process with e-bay, and assuming you paid with paypal - the item not as described process...

It's only $10, but it's the principle of the thing... (why someone would pay that for two screws is beyond me, but that's beside the point)

Thanks for the heads up though!

Hmm, I just tried searching that name on eBay and got "No Results Found"?
Do you have a link to them or the item you bought?

If you used paypal they also have a resoulution department and do help make the other party pay you back. Its worked well for me in the past....just anothere avenue that youre able to take.

Ah ha, I was seaching Bikers Planet, not bikersplanet.
With neg FB's showing 13 in the last month, I don't think I would've dealt with them to begin with.
