Yay for Ebay & Your Best Bargains?

  1. Hi all,

    I just had an ebay item delivered that I won at auction last week.

    I got some Tiger Angel Serpentine 2 piece leathers. Price delivered? $270 :cool:

    They are in really good condition and most importantly fit nice and snug. Although i am yet to try the pants.

    So what bargains have you picked up from Ebay? I think these leathers have been my best so far

  2. We are so obsessed with consumerism. We buy buy buy buy buy buy.. Companies are getting richer while we sink in debt..

    Enter Ebay \:D/

    Now, instead of chucking away those useless impulsed purchases, we sell them back in ebay and cut our losses. Sometimes we make a profit too..
    Others, instead of paying top$ at the shop, they get it in ebay at half, even less price.. A win win situation for the consumer...
  3. From the exhaust, airbox, protectors, oggies, irridium plugs, etc. that I've ordered in the last month, I've saved about 600 off rrp.
  4. Not so much eBay, but the plethora of online classifieds have saved me a metric f$%k-tonne on bikes and gear...
  5. tinted screen for $45 - perfect nik.

    and Alpine Stars boots for $80 second hand exc. cond, great bargain!

    gota love ebay.
  6. Just got a pair of crash sliders from US for $58 delivered.
    Am still waiting on a paddock stand (used) for $50 delivered.

  8. I was considering getting some sliders for a very low cost from ebay. You can get swingarm sliders and oggies for 60 delivered... but when its something that important I decided to spend the extra money to get what everyone recommended for my bike (motosliders), for $140 delivered.

    Is there much difference? Who knows, but best to go with something you know has been proven and tested when it could be the determining factor between royally fecked or just a few scratches.
  9. Handmade Aluminium Swingarm for my SR.

    People over here want $1200AUD, got one for $450! from the states. Delivered!
  10. Based on what I've read, I think that MG will have this thread nailed :p.

  19. There are a never ending list of bargins to be found on Ebay! I love the place myself, and have bought a number of things including my lastest cage for $500. It has air con that works, drives well, had 4 months rego when I bought it, and is great for them rainy days when I dont want to ride anywhere.

    Ebay is great, just have to watch out for the shipping costs some times.

    Just to add to my bargins! I just won 2 Genuine R6 panels for $95.00 including postage! :shock: RRP per side from Yamaha is $480.00 Custom paint job is getting closer!
