Wow...a brave man...start price at 10K...with No reserve.... for what looks like an original Injection unmolested version...first reg'd in the UK 1998....so maybe its an original supply bike never been back to Italy....

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/323811996328?ul_noapp=true

Worth almost buying for anyone with a spare sorted carbie engine to buy and swap out the unit....

Welll...It "sold",...For Just 12,101....Yet...One day later...Its back...claiming the actual buyer was drunk and pulled out...But....And this gets me that people think we're all stupid...but then I suppose you only need one stupid person to make a sale...

.with an explanation of why the seller pulled out...Beware???...usual Caveat Emptor... I looked at the bidding history.....last and final bid was a 1 bid made just past midnight....but no one else bid and it finished as scheduled at 9.58am yesterday BH Monday....Why has he not offered it as a 2nd chance to the next bidder which is only 100 less?...next highest bidder bid final bid was some 2.5 days earlier...and five other bidders which he could have gone back to as "2nd chance"...clearly he wasn't happy with the final price....as he had no reserve on it...and all the other bids were his mates trying to get the price up for him...so maybe...just maybe only one genuine bidder who was allegedly "drunk"....all of this goes to show you that there was no serious or genuine buyers...

Apologies if Seller is on here and all the above is "fake news" but it smells fishy...but then some things do but aren't fishy at all.... Laughing

I recently tried to sell my Katana on eBay. I set a reasonable reserve and the bids cane flooding in. What surprised me was I had loads of questions but not 1 of the bidders asked a single thing. I would not shell out over 5k on something I had not seen let alone spoken directly to the seller about. Bids crept up in tiny increments so no doubt someone testing to find where my reserve was because low and behold the moment reserve was hit he withdrew his bids. Back up we went and new high bidder cleared reserve a few hours before the end time. Last bid it took but a price I was ok to get. Auction ended and complete silence. I chased, I chased again. He comes back with sorry but I bid by accident. I offered 2nd chance to next high bidder then the next. Total silence. Moral of the story is our seller could be genuine and eBay is just full of chancers and time wasting twats

Well Said SpongeBob....hence my slight "trepidation" on genuine or not......Hence why I dont sell on ebay anymore......Had the same with my KTM...got what I wanted...more than I paid 5 years previous TBH....thousands of questions from folk.....all answered fully properly and not of any concern...and not one of them bid....just keyboard warriors with nothing better to do then waste their time and mine...Final winning bidder was a fresh bid...solely one...but placed 5 days before end of auction...but not hit until dying seconds....theres programmes for this if I could ever work it out how to use....genuine guy....never asked a question of spoke to me before buying....rang me...questioned how he was going to get it home...I said...bank transfer me the monies and I'll do online V5 transfer to his name and address.....then he could tax and insure it...get dropped off at mine and ride home....V5 transfer was 3 days after I did it he got new V5 in the post....evidently after he paid his monies...>then he turned up with a friend and went all over it musingly....I said whats up?...He said...just checking...I said "fine, but its yours now anyway...you've paid me...its cleared...I've moved the monies....V5 in your name and you've insured and taxed it...so heres the keys....He realised then..Oh yeh...no point in kicking the tyres....as he couldn't "beat me down on price"...Most weird bike sale ever....I suppose its the "change" in peoples attittudes and media for selling...The tax one being one....He couldn't tax unless it was insured in his name...and your are "supposed" to cancel the tax as soon as signing of the V5....As its not transferable....Indeed...he took the old V5 home and had the new one with him...."Sold as seen" receipt given....should have written..."Sold as seen on the internet"...because he's paid before seeing in the flesh....Mind you...I've done that 8 times from bikes from other countries....And just waited for the courier to confirm it was collected..and then wait for delivery to first see it in the flesh.....Always sleepless nights

I totally agree and I think the buyer is being less than 100% honest. The problem with the injection V-due is that most of them don't have the reworked seals and bearings / oil passages etc and hence they are , as Piero says, best used as ornaments only as they will blow up in the first few trys of a ride out. Piero went to the lengths of modifying plenty of injection bikes and sending them back to owners as 95% right. The seller on this bike hasn't commented about the engine work and if he knew , he would of said. If there is no proof that the engine has had the work done then the bike is only worth what someone will pay for it factoring in that it will need to either go back to Italy for the engine mods or have the engine swapped for a sorted injection engine or a carb engine. It will be great for spares but not at that price. At 12K it needs to be a semi sorted injection bike with mods done and just needing a strip down / tune up / gremlins sorted. Then there is the issue of it not being used so cracked pipes / filters and all the rest of the storage problems. Not wanting to be too negative but the seller could easily of contacted piero and asked him what work if any was done to the bike using the chassis number as reference. Caveat emptor.

Being "diplomatic" for the owner...of whom I have no idea who owns it...He does say "totally unmodified as from factory yaddy yah.....And "Would be nice as a display piece".....


Says 1000kms/700miles....which is odd that it is in Kms....as GetVehicleSmart says it was first regd in UK in 1998....so cant be an "official import" for what thats worth...I pay no stead on such things....All Italian bikes are imports if you dont live in Italy...Cars can be a different thing...Wheel on the wrong side for one....but when I lived in Dubai...Official exports from UK to Dubai were different to UK Discoverys/Landrovers...Bigger engines...bigger climate packs...Toyota had official imports also...improved dust seals around door...Frezzer pack glove box...and a natty A/C vent in the base of the drivers seat for your "nads"...I can heartily attest it was needed and a great idea

Smart App has ZERO mot history on it...so its not been on the road for at leas the last ten years...if it had been to Pieros for Mods...which he doesnt claim...He'd at least have had the clocks plugged to be in MPH and not Kms...
