Good explaination Alan - appreciate you jumping in here
I will take your (good) advice and change the title of this particular section.
having bikes of a few different makes, then I hear (and often see) the evidence of scams going on in internet land.
it appears that we are doing less and less buying and selling face-to-face and while that is a good thing in some respects (more choice - wider audience) it also allows the less than honest an improved opportunity to take advantage.
This section is to both advertise what is out there, in case you happen to have the bike being advertised (yes, it does happen) or know it's a scame and maybe also to reunite an owner with the original paperworrk. This is all coverd in the "sticky topic" at the start of this section viewtopic.php?f=52&t=5194
