Best Deals you've gotten off ebay, biketrader, etc

This thread is made out of curiousity of what the best deals everyone here has gotten on gear, bikes, parts, etc.

I am purchasing my first riding bike ( 3rd overall) so I recently have bought all my gear off ebay.

Ill start with my best motorcycle deals

$40 new cl-14 black helmet
$20 new Joe rocket blaster gloves
$20 slightly used AGV racing boots
$30 slightly used textile padded teknic jacket

bought first bike for $900, sold for $1500
bought second bike for $300, sold for $450 in parts

So for $110 (including S&H) i have a complete set of gear that i bought solely with the profit off my second bike


The only bad part I would say about my gear is that none of it matches (gloves blue leather, boots red leather, jacket black textile, helmet black) so i look ->

2005 Suzuki GSXR 600 - $2400 shipped. No it wasn't a scam.

2004 Honda CBR600 RR - $2049 shipped. Wasn't on ebay, but on a different online website. Not a scam either.

btw, It only took 300 bucks to get the RR in riding condition. Gixxer will take 500 bucks, more if I decide to get some rashed plastics.

Oh, I also got a Pirelli Diablo Strata Front and Rear tire set (180 rear) for 165 bucks with tax! They are some sticky tires too.

Some dude wanted to sell his 2001 SV650S in a hurry on SportTouring.net forum. He asked for $1000, I happened to have that much cash on hand. I fully intend to get BlueBook on that bike IF I ever decide to sell it. The peg on the brake pedal was broken off (drilled a hole, put a bolt with rubber hose on it), and the brake lever had a bit broken off. Farings cracked around turn signals due to being dropped at stand still. I'll never get that lucky again.

Oh, did I mention it came with a Corbin seat on it?

On ebay I bought a Two Bros. carbon fiber stash system (retail around 9 bills) for $400.00.

I like craigslist a lot b/c its easy to barter.

I got some Alpinestar SMX boots - guy said he wore them half a dozen times (no visible signs of wear) for $75...he wanted $125.

Non bike related crazy deals:

I got a 65" Toshiba rear projection in perfect condition for $450 on craigslist.

I bought my 03 CBR600F4i for $5500 off cycletrader...not anything amazing but the bike was exclusively ridden by a woman (original owner).

...only thing about it is that it's lowered a little bit. Doesn't really bother me but i'll raise it back up eventually cuz at 6'1 there's no need for me to ride a lowered bike. Also it hadn't been ridden in a year, but they had done the right thing and turned it on every 2-3 weeks.
