WARNING: "all_power_sports" on Ebay

This is a warning/heads-up about the following vendor:

All Power Sports
1000 Stephanie Place Unit 6
Henderson, NV 89014
Tel: 702.435-2887
11-6 Monday-Friday (Pacific)
http://stores.ebay.com/allpowersports

If you purchase ANYTHING from this vendor I encourage you to ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS. The part you are purchasing is likely from a wrecked motorcycle, and could very well have damage that they are not telling you about. I recently purchased a clip-on from them on Ebay, labeled as "used" with "nicks and scratches from normal use". What I realized when I received the part was that it was actually damaged, in all likelihood from a wreck.

Here's the link to the actual Ebay page:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...CA:MOTORS:1123

When I received the part I came to realize that...SURPRISE....the bar-end had broken off (at the screw) and the clip-on was severely rashed and rusted on the end. The screw was broken off in the bar weight, and was going to require some serious prying to get it out. Then the worst part....I rolled the clip-on around on a flat surface and it wasn't straight, it was slightly bent. Clearly this part was involved in a wreck and the vendor made NO attempt at divulging that information (see the Ebay link). I take partial responsibility as I took them at their advertised word and didn't call or e-mail them to ask them if had been damaged, but I fully believe they knew what they were doing. I was naive and should have called them, but I would hope that an upstanding business would be upfront about such things. After a little research, it looks like this company buys WRECKED vehicles, then turns around and sells the parts....damaged or not, and sometimes without telling you it was damaged. Anyway, I am able to use the clip-on...it's only slightly bent, but it's not what I thought what I was paying for. Just wanted to give you guys a heads-up.

I understand your pissed off, but there could be a bunch of reasons why they didn't mention it was bent.
Just like a junk yard, if they are buying used or wrecked bikes to part out, they probably have 1 or 2 people stripping them down and they could have not noticed it was bent. I could be a simply mistake.

Did you e-mail them and try to get refunded??
I'm not saying they are wrong or you are wrong, but your doggin out a seller who has 10,852 sales and a 98.3% positive feedback.

Thats pretty damn good if you ask me and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from someone with those numbers.

I didn't hear about you trying to resolve the issue with the seller, if you did , you left it out of your post.

if your gonna bad mouth someone, make sure you tell the entire story.

Yes I emailed them and asked them to correct the situation and they never responded to me. Where in my post do you think I dogged them? I simply said that if you buy from them ASK QUESTIONS and make sure you know what you're buying, because they were not completely upfront about the sale. Do you think it's coincidence that neither of their pictures showed where the barend was broken off? Chill out man, I was just trying to give my fellow riders a heads up, that's all.

Well I see that they have 10,000+ sales and damn good feedback as opposed to you being a noob on ebay with ONE transaction.....

All I am saying is don't assume they knew the damn thing was bent.
