Just in case anyone is looking for bikes on Ebay, beware of the scammer selling these bikes,

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-S1000-RR/254736862167?hash=item3b4f800bd7:g:EToAAOSw3rFfeJnu

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Suzuki-GT750-J-1972/254736861366?hash=item3b4f8008b6:g:ngoAAOSwyaNfeJno

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KAWASAK-Z1B-1975/254736862236?hash=item3b4f800c1c:g:wmgAAOSwDQdfeJnt

The above is a bit of a varied selection, but he/she has at least 10 BMW S1000RR's & around 250 bikes in total. Reportedly selling on behalf of a client, some bikes may be bid up to very large amounts, but these bids are most likely being bid up by concerned watchers, so please be aware !!

Scammer or not, his listings do look very odd! A ZZR1400 with 2 bids and currently at £50 100 and a 1981 XT500 currently bid at £65 700.... yeah right.

In fact, well over 300 of his current items have current bids of over £50 000. I doubt any of them are legitimate bids, how can ebay not see this as suspicious?

He’s been on eBay since 2012 and has 100% positive feedback Rolling Eyes

There's guys on another forum I go on bidding his sale up to rediculous levels in an attempt to warn people off attempting to buy from him.
They have reported him to Ebay, but they seem to have done little to stop him.

He sells cars & boats too, they always start of at a low price, presumably to encourage people to bid/buy.
If you try to view the items he tries to get you to email his "father", outside of Ebay !!

Just search his "other items for sale".

Well it looks like EBay may have done something because those listings have gone.
