    He binned his bike and decided to break it for parts. Crime of the century, hang him.

    Yes. Lots of high end bike parts and very low feedback. Looks like a tea leaf getting rid of bikes in parts as he knows he cannot sell it on straight. But then he could be a new business venture and perfectly legit.

    No real contact details and no collection offered. I'd be suspicious me.

    No collection is quite normal if he's working from home and doesn't want anyone being able to check out his well equipped garage, and the elfs with ginger beards tied up in the corner on slave duty.

    Ah, that will be why he's offering complete fairings in mint condition.

    look at the feedback. I think that the one starting 'Horrific scammer..." probably sums it up quite well.

    This one has not got a clue what he is selling. That's an 80's CB750/900 tank
