Yeah Rocket you maybe right. I would have figured this bike to sale for around $10,000, but I could be wrong. I have tried to buy a car through Craig's List and it turned out to be a scam, it was a very nice Lexus that turned out to be to good to be true.

I was kidding.  That being said, a 2006 in great shape is about $5-7K.  There are too many issues with this ad to make me believe that it's accurate.

I had posted something like that a while back. Had a Harley trike listed up in the Dallas area for around $4000.00. When I emailed the guy, I found out that it was supposed to be up in New Jersey with him (he was in the military) and he said that he would pay for the shipping and I would have 7-10 days to look it over before sending the money. If he was going to do all of that, where would his profit be??

I just talked to the guy and sent him via western union the money so that no one else could buy it.  He is going to have it delivered to me by one his cousin's uncle's friend that lives off Beltway 288 in Conroe................ :banghead:
