It's a scam? I just check cycletrader.com and one of the featured bikes is a 2004 Rune with 1900 miles for $8K. Am I missing something or do you think it's a scam? If it's legit - I may be turning someone on to a deal.

It could be possible rune sales were/are terrible and I don't imagine resale can be to good on them.

Even with slow sales, $8000 for an 04 Rune would seem highly suspicious. I would do a lot of checking before giving out any information if it were me. My gut feeling is that it is a scam.

As I see it, there are only 3 options:
a) Scam (this includes HOT as the dickens!!!)
b) Typo - yep... a missing 1 in front of that 8.
c) Bad crash / salvage bike

If it were real, I could find 8K just to have an extra cool/funny looking bike.

Scam, these guys use escrow accounts set up in Romania, get you to "escrow" it with thier escrow.

If you want to have some fun, email him from your hotmail account (the one you use for porn, duh! lol) and then chet the routing protocols. The guy I was talking to said he was in New Your and his routing came from the Dreamnet server in Romania.

Don't buy sight unseen!

You know the old adage..."if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't"??? I think it applies here. :twisted:
