This a fyi ( for your information)for all.

I saw an item on Ebay that I was interested in for the GoldWing, but the information said complete, however the picture did not show all items.

I sent the seller a request for additonal pictures and never heard back from them. I send a 2nd request and got an email from the seller asking me what I needed the pictures for? He says it was complete, and that he was not playing games.

I replied and explained why I wanted more information.

Well, the Seller comes back lamblasting me in text (Caps) and giving me a hard time for asking for more information.

Screwem, they just lost a sale.

But this is fair warning for all you new Ebayers. Be very wary and ask the sellers questions. If they refuse to give you the information you asked for, then run don't walk away from them.

I told this seller that I was going to post this in the various GoldWing forums I belong to as he does not need to be selling to honest GoldWing people with his foul attitude.

If I am wrong in posting this, then I apologize to the forum operators. But to this seller. He can KMA.

Ron

Ron,

Not wrong at all in posting, but it would help us all if we knew who the seller is

Not Sabre Cycle by any chance They have a very poor rep here .

We do share info on who is good and who is bad just to avoid sharing the same bad experiences. Thats part of what the forum is about.

Do you have an item number? The quality of eBay sellers has slipped over recent years IMO. I always stay away from the hot-headed types and asking a question is a good way to identify/qualify as well as ALL CAPS listings and messages. I see that, back button for me.

I find the buy/sell forum here to be pretty well stocked with good folks looking to make decent transactions with GL parts. I've bought/sold a couple things and wished I could leave feedback for those transactions. Mana is about as close as it get's here...

Past bikes in no particular order -

65 Yamaha 80
67 Yamaha 305 Scrambler
71 & 75 HD Sportster
75 HD FLH
72 Suzuki T500
74 Suzuki GT550
77 Suzuki GS750
72 & 81 BMW R75/5, R100RT
83 Yamaha XT200

Current bike:

81 Honda GL1100

Not wrong at all to post this. We need to know about bad sellers, especially since Fleabay is such a popular parts-bin for older bikes!

Who was it? Sorry you had to put up with that loser. I tend to ask questions, and won't deal with anyone that is rude or evasive.

Well after the replyI just received from this Grouchy Bitter Old Man.

Perhaps he needs to get on one of his 50 Goldwings and go riding to find some pleasure in motorcycles.. Because as a Ebay Seller he is a failure.

My father-in-law is 84 and types in ALL CAPS all the time. Not because he's a "hot headed type" but because he's just learning how to use a computer. Don't be so judgmental.
