Default Anyone seen these trikes

Trikes for sale on e-bay, item number 190149005524

I asked the bloke a question about whether he built them because there's also an identical blue one in another pic and got this reply, and I'm wondering if anybody knows him or saw the trike at the Rock and Blues

"" yes ,I build them .I am selling this trike for £3,000.00 including delivery anywhere in UK.I set at a "very, very low" price to guarantee a sale. The only reason is that I need cash for a family emergency. I have to tell you that I'm currently out of town with some major problems so pick up/view isn't an option. If you want to buy this vehicle email me back with your full name and address to start the official procedure trough eBay. They will send you a notification with ALL the info regarding delivery, purchase protection and refund policy so please provide your details before more questions. You will find 90% of answers in that notification from eBay!

Thanks

I know that if he is away from his PC that theres no way that e-bay can send an automated response if someone provides there full name and address. I hope he isn't dodgy but because of him having a new user id its a bit worrying

Hello davey boy
where ya been hidin
anyhow




I do believe that there was sa similar post here where the person was out of town and it was a con

it looks good for the money but price does seem a bit cheap if its in as good quality as he says
well worth a look for that price though. just make sure its registered correctly

personaly i think its a con

Hi matey

Moved house and job and had loads of stress doing it all but back now.

I think its a con as well being as he wants a name and address before anyone can even go and see it.

Default Trikes.

Dave

That trike was on ebay a little while back and it sold for a lot more. I was watching it just to see how much it went for.

Think about it, why would someone buy a trike off ebay, then re-sell it at a much lower price, just a short while later and claim they have built it themselves?

£3000 for a trike of that quality is just too good to be true. Just looking at the parts used, you can see that there is a hellof a lot of money tied up in that trike.

Best to just leave it alone and let evilbay sort out the con merchants. Remember it is a case of buyer beware with evilbay and if it looks too good to be true it almost certainly is. Fucked if I would buy a trike or bike of that value without seeing and riding it first.

Chopper.
PS: I used to be cynical, but now I just don't believe anything I hear and only half what I see.

ive seen these advertised on ebay more than once, no feedback, no paypal account, last time they was for sale it was a different seller, who strangely enough, had zero feedback as well !!!
id steer clear, looks like a scam, and as has been said above, £3000 for something thats worth a dammed site more !!
