1. possible fake - I recently replied to an ad for a HD fatboy being sold at one third the price , turned out a con as the person asked me for a deposit saying bike has mutiple bidders .
2. Maybe in urgent need of immediate cash .
My opinion is fake(the photos are from a online magazine ) because of the low price qouted and I have personally noticed significant number of fake ads for Harley bikes being offered at half or one third price with the story that it belongs to someone from a foreign embassy who urgently needs to return to his nation.
if it was near or same as ex showroom , then one could assume unsatisfied customer.
We have that problem over here with Craigslist. It is not uncommon to see the same item for sale in several states at the same time. Generally, if a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is. A non-local phone number is also a red flag, but we have a military base nearby, so many folks around here have out of state cell numbers.
I have had more scammers after me than actual interested buyers when listing anything on Craigslist. Funny how a guy who is working on an offshore drill rig is willing to pay me more than my asking asking price on an old used riding lawn mower. LOl, some people just need to get a life.
