scam

definately sounds like a scam tell them you want to come see it and the title. And you probably wont hear from them again

Scam

Deffinitely ask to see papers and possibly test ride. If you're not close ask someone to inspect it for you thats in the area. I almost ran into the same thing off of this site. I got so much misinformation from the guy I told him to off!

if youre buying like that....make him send you some pictures to where you know he's legit (i.e. take a pic with a happy meal on the tank)

by the looks of it, that thing is wadded up, or its a scam

that made dropping acid seem like a mild cure for boredom

'95 F3 Smokin Joe - tried to kill me, so i returned the favor and parted it out

'03 "Titanium" CBR 954 - frame sliders, reupholstered seats, cut and gutted stock exhaust, -1/+2 520 conversion, BMC race filter

To good to be true of course.
Realistically 3500.00 dollar R6 you will be looking at 1999-2001 range depending on condition/mileage. Be careful, everyone wants your money!!

"I will sell the bike to you for $3500 last price.You still have 3
years warranty at any yamaha dealer in the world.I will ship the bike
with 2 helmets and jackets,with clear title and all the stuff that i
have with it.

This transaction will be made through eBayMotors protection program
and you can be 100% sure of this deal.I will not have the money until
you will receive and inspect your bike.I can ship the bike to your
door in 4 days after the payment is confirmed.So if you want to buy
it please give me your full name,telephone number and address to
start a transaction with you via eBay protection program."

Thoughts?
