Surely not a whole month with nothing on offer?

Plenty still on ebay UK...all the usual suspects some of which have had a good 2-3 years of hanging around.....BUT......for perhaps only the 2nd time I've seen one for sale direct in the UK....in some 8 years...a DB4 tri-color...albeit an imported one...tidy bike with a tidy matching price...Dealer has made 2 errors in the description of the bike.....so get your eagle eyes out...but it just shows that he doesn't know anything about the bike really....yet may well achieve a sale merely coz hes "a dealer"...

it's an "L" twin, not a "V", and it's 904 cc's ? Very Happy

Both good spots...and correctly identified...although I wasn't quite so picky in picking out those schoolboy errors...Originally he described the bike as having Marchesini wheels and engine from the Ducati 900ss........So I referenced his own pictures saying...Nope...they are Antera Anchor wheels...he replied back...Nope...they have Marchesini written all over them....Thus I said Nope....he must be looking at the YB9 he has for sale also...as these are anteras and I didn't want him mis-leading anyone...and the engine is actually from the 900 Monster as Ducati;s 900ss now had fuel injection...so Bimota took the monster engine that was still a carbie....He didn't reply back...but has now changed the description......clean looking bike that seems to have stood for a while...and yet another import Km clocked vehicle being high priced...

This popped up today in Cycle Trader:

https://www.cycletrader.com/listing/1997-Bimota-YB-11-122648098

It appears too good to be true, there are only 3 pictures, there is no mention of mileage...but it says the seller is in Parker, Colorado and I seem to remember a Bimota owner there that just had a very clean Corse DB2 for sale with a host of extra parts.

Could this bee the same guy?

Don't know why only 3 pictures though and none telling enough. The pictures say that there are 18 so I will root around a bit.

$2,229 Dollars = 1,710.47 GBP / Euro. Seems too cheap. Makes me wish I lived closer because if it was for real, it would be in my garage tonight. Laughing

I guess he must have missed the 1 off the front of the price.

Same photos:

Is it the same seller or is it a scam? One photo has '12 of 18' at the top so it looks like it's been pinched from somewhere. Be careful.

Different Bike. Not sure re: any potential scam esp. due to the picture number thing so as always, Caveat Emptor!
