is this fishy

masterbikes on eBay

Dont want to point the finger at all, but it seems if i were parting out stolen bikes, i would do it this way (this may be why i am not a moto thief too, if im wrong).

The one thing that is strange, is, if these were crashed bikes he was buying, then why are the Used late year fairing kits in perfect condition, same with the wheels.

This shop is in Florida.

Anybody have any insight to curb my paranoia

Edit: if this is legit, he/she has some killer OEM parts for sale, lots of CBR things

Seems probable... Main reason being that if you jack someone's bike it is hard to sell the parts locally since the original owner may be scouting the classifieds for his stuff (at least that's what i'd do). Because of that it seems feasible for a thief to start an online ebay business and then sell the parts to across the country.

My paranoia senses are also tingling.

I agree, I mean you consider it took 4 minutes to steal my bike. You get 1k for the fairings, 1k for the wheels, 1k for front assembly.

not to mention small parts like ecu. Sounds like a quick turnover. I have been searching for wheels and fairings after my bike got stolen as those have the highest resell.

This guy has no Frames, or Engines. Things easily traceable. Just seems wierd.

He also could be totally legit, i am, however, very interested where he has 3 sets of 13 14 15 600rr fairing kits in amazing condition... Where would one get those?

or they are like rubbersideup, and know that the sum of a bike's parts exceeds its value, so they buy complete bikes legitimately and part them out.

Or like you said, he isn't selling the engines. He buys bikes with a blown engine and parts them out.

Why would a forum member have any insight that would be in any way legit?

Could be or could not be stolen...

A lot of shops buy bikes to part them, it is quite profitable in fact.

Still, a good way to see if it is fishy is the kind of parts they sell and their condition.

For example if you find parts that look almost brand new and they are the kinda of part that always brakes (like tail fairing)... Then it would be legit to suspect...

(some parts do look suspicious to me)

Right...
I do a lot of ebay shopping, and my old Ninja i rebuilt buying used parts off ebay from salvage vendors.

The thing is those vendors sell things like "single right fairing". "Right clip on" "headlight shrowd" Not the whole assembled front end. All the other vendors ive seen have ala cart items off the front end.

Why are there no alternators? headers? things that really dont break in a wreck. How come the rotors aren't separate? those are expensive. also little to no description with no watermark.

as for being profitable to part out bikes. there are 3 current gen CBR part sets. Those bikes retail used for $7500+... hes sells the wheels for $1500 the fairing for $1500 the front for $1000, that's only $4000.. seems like a lot of effort to MAYBE break even (considering he sells the engine locally for 3k).

This guys are bargainers, they don't normally buy second hand bikes at 7500 to part them out.

I took my 600RR 2003 to one of those places to see how much they offered for the bike.

They said 1.000 EUR ... I sold that bike by myself for 2.500 EUR.

They would normally buy trashed bikes, but none of those parts looks like if they came from a crashed bike... No complete from end (with forks, handle bars, triple trees, levers, bar ends) can survive a crash in that inmaculate state they seem to have...
