One of my buds spotted this....and as you might guess is real interested.
The price looks outstanding, but the text does not read like most of the scam posts.
Anyone maybe know who owns this bike, or might be tryna sell it?
Or is it just a classic too good to be true scam?

Sounds like a good way to end up robbed or dead on something that probably doesn't exist. Does seem like a real specific list, might have stolen the listing from somewhere else though.

Here is that exact same listing but in WI. This is probably the original one as it has a phone number and some more information.

FYI, if anyone is ever buying a used bike. I'd be happy to run the VIN for you.
