Scam or legit??

Is this guy legit?? I need new LH skins for my bike and this guy has a whole set plus tank, seats and mirrors. I would turn my red bike green.

He also selling a GSXR750, but doesn't have a title to it, that scares me.

Anyone live Schereville, IN??

like what???
He's selling things that are all similar.. he's had nothing but positive feedback,
I think he's high on shipping but I guess you really have to look at the overall price to take that into consideration. He also takes Paypal which is a pretty safe service for both the buyer and the seller. seems ligit to me..

Well I look at it like he's selling things that cant be traced to a stolen bike. And The GSX'r 750..just kind of drives that home for me, why would one sell a bike that he has no title too. One couldnt even register the bike, it could only be used as a track bike. which is cool so long as you want to take a chance at buying stolen stuff. Maybe it's just me...seen a lot of scams on e-bay, so I really dont trust much of anything on that site anymore LOL. As far as pay-pal..dont be fooled..People get ripped off with Paypal all the time ...there even a website for them... LOL

careful you don't burn yourself on those parts when they arrive....sounds like they are pretty hot.

Well, I started out with nothing and I still have most of it...

I've been had twice with paypal and got my money back both times.. as for the parts being hot..I don't know I'd guess it's more like he has a connection to wrecked bikes.. that would explain the lack of title on the gixxer and the various misc. parts.. if he was parting out entire bikes then I may be inclined to think they are stolen..however one of my best friends parts out busas all the time and he's as ligit as they come. you can't always judge a book by his cover.. soemone thats stealing all of these parts probaly is going to have some neg. feedback or poor shipping somewhere along the way.. I don't know I guess.. I wouldn't shy away from his parts personally.

well he said he has the vin number on the bike get it from him and see if it's been reported stolen.. I'd guess it hasn't been.

well let me say this........

i dropped my bike about 2 weeks ago and been lookin relentlessly on ebay for a set of 05 green plastics. ive contacted this guy once, seems legit but i didnt bid last time it was up. this is the 2nd or 3rd time ive seen it up....the auction never ended but just dissapeared..although i think he uses the same username.


this guy

this guy too.... i can tell by his same photos and thumb size dent in the tank..... but i believe this guy uses a different name everytime......
