thanks very much for looking !!!

I don't know if I will bid again or withdraw the bid at this point - kind of hoping for some advice.

Have they told how much it will cost to post as the advert does not give any idea.

Having bought and sold over ebay for many years you need to get the postage sorted before you bid as it may run into hundreds of pounds to ship a bike from usa. Also if this is such a good deal why has no one from the states bid on it ?

Be very careful imho.

If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it. Gaius Julius Caesar.

Agree with stumpy.

If you can't see/ride it and there is no postage cost I would not recommend bidding.

The seller has only 2 feedback; both for purchases. I know you have to start somewhere but 'caveat emptor' is a good eBay principle.

Did Nightrider 2013 for Parkinson's UK, doing it again this year just for the fun of it and to raise more money.

If you're going to pay that kind of money, you just as well pick up a 2013 bike from a bike shop here. At least you will get something that fits and after sales service.

Just retract you bid, you seem good at that (3 in the last 6 months)

But what if it arrives and isn't in the condition you expected? Are you going to send it back?

If you really want that model why not get a new one from a UK retailer (£2399):

I put in a US postcode and it gives a rate, the seller just hasn't calculated it or set up a USPS tariff calculator for out with the USA.

Its a big risk shipping it from so far away.

This. Ended at $2949 so about the same as £2399 anyway...
