hello everyone,

I have been trying to buy a 1098s/1198s from the states and ship it back to Australia.

I have probably come across 7-8 advertisements so far - from cycletrader, oodle, craigslist, ebay - that are all just a bunch of crap, scammers from nigeria with fake american names - emails etc... trying to get money out of you.


After you ask them for more specific details - copies of identification, passports, licenses phone numbers & copies of registration papers, proving ownership, engine & VIN no's.......... they pull the pin and never get back to you.

I'm getting very tired & sick of these scumbags!

thought i'd give a heads up, and see if anyone else has had these problems...?


cheers,
Mongo

Yep,
I believe I did. I was looking for a clean, low mileage 1098 and when it was time to talk the talk and walk the walk, he just vaporized. Yeah, buyer beware, brother. Cheers, Martyn

Personally, I would not spend that kind of coin without seeing things in person, although I realize that you are half the world away. They don't sell those bikes in Oz? How's about going through a real dealer?

I have checked out a few dealers, but they are generally more expensive...

but either way, a 1098s/1198s sells for 35k AUD here in australia!!!!!

even with 2-3k in import expenses it works out so much freakin cheaper...


here's an example, they are often long-winded stories, or short sentences w/ extremely bad engrish...........

Hello,

The bike is still for sale. Never had any mechanical problems. I must tell you that I had to move to Italy, Rome one month ago with my work and I took the bike with me hoping to drive it here as well. I work in Public relations department at a hotel here and because of this job I change my home quite often. Here I had an unpleasant surprise because the bike is an US model and to pay the registration here in Europe, to pass all the emissions and standards and many other, would be quite expensive and nobody would do it. I tried to sell it locally but it was not successfully. That is why I am trying to sell the bike back in USA, there will be no further problems because the bike passes US emissions standards and DOT & EPA as long as it has been purchased in US space.
I can deliver the bike to your address and I will agree to let you test it and inspect it for a few days just to be sure. I am going to use a shipping company to deliver it and you will pay the shipping and insurance fees. I want to use this company because I used it to bring the bike here and they had a excellent service, it came with absolutely no damage or scratches.
It should take about 8-10 days to get the bike.
If interested please reply asap.
Thank you for your time.


P.S. I have attached more pictures with my bike

Kind regards,

Giovanni

Mongo I just Bought a 2003 999 6000$. While shopping for the Bike I also ran Into alot of deals that where just to good to be true . 2005 999 6k miles 3500$ ect . its a Shame because alot of people will fall for these adds thinking they are real. Mainly because people are thinkings the ad is legit because of the lacking economy bringing prices down .

Are you by any chance interested in a 1098R? I know shipping would be around $700.00. Already quote to ship to NZ. Let me know! 7877911887 (Puerto Rico). I am a dealer if you are wondering.

The problem is dude - you are trying to get one of these bikes CHEAP! That's were you run into problems -
guys that have these bikes may be willing to take a little hit on the price due to the economy but nobody is going to take it in the shorts.

The really cheap ones are usually cheap for a reason - they are a SCAM!

Get real and you'll find a real seller. :rolleyes:
