Could be real- there is a reserve set. But $5700.00? I doubt it.

Phone number (real?) Only would buy in person.

I watched an FZR1000 not sell at Buy it now of $2800.00.
They listed it a 2nd time with a reserve and low starting price -people bid it up to something like $3400.00 on that auciton so the guy did well.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

you'd think this would ring a bell with you guys after a while...

1) pre-approved bidders only
2) fabulous low price
3) then you get the email that he's in Pakistan or Russia or somewhere, but if ya wire him the cash, he'll FedEx it (its already boxed up)

catch some snap!

Check his other stuff - seems almost legit. I just checked his past selling auctions and it seems a hodge-podge, but he did sell a Mountaineer for not a lot of $$ (173k miles on it).
He's got a Gixxer too:

The problem with them seeming legit is that legit people get their accounts stolen by having shitty passwords or falling for fishing.

I wouldn't have even responded to the thread if I had seen the low reserve 1st. Almost on the edge of believable but still low.
A low open price with a realistic reserve is understandable. Thus the term no reserve auction online or IRL.

I saw the low reserve price later, did not try calling number- my friend has bought several ebay bikes so I know it can happen;)- he also had his account hijacked once. Won't admit but I think he fell for fishing.

I'd stick to buying in person.

This one was a little less obvious than most that get posted here.
Some real sellers use pre-approved to avoid paying huge listing and closing fees and having some young kid be the winning bidder and unable to pay.

One of the scammers went "pre-approved only" on auctions after people on this this site bid up one of the scam bikes sky high.

True the yahoo email is another flag- only contact sellers through ebay.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Oh, I've seen and reported a bunch of those $3000 BIN scams - this one doesn't feel the same. Those guys usually hijack an account with a higher than 17 feedback rating! It probably is a scam of some sort, but it just doen't stand out like the usual weenies.
