  1. There is a show quality Hog being sold on autotrader.com.au for only $5,300.

    There are a couple more quality Hogs going for less than ten grand and the adds all have a shonky looking gmail contact email address too.

    Click here to go see one of the ads... I'm raving on about. :)

    Am I missing something maybe?

  4. I've seen these ads on both autotrader and either bikepoint/bikesales. the same guys appear to be selling a GSXR-600 and an R1 for the same price. The seller appears to be overseas, so i'd treat it it with caution :?

  5. Massive scam... Steer very clear of these types of sales.. :evil:

  6. If you make contact they will give you a pitch about you paying up front to a 'trusted holding company', the bike is delivered and then you have 3 days to decide if you're happy with it or not - and can elect to keep it, or return it & get your money back from this super-secure, well-trusted, 3rd-party cash-holding company who don't even charge any fees... wow!

    It's bullshit.

    I wouldn't even pay HALF that for a stupid Hardley that doesn't turn corners and is stupid.
