    He has a bunch of gear going quite cheaply. We went over as a group and he gave us a really good deal. Good guy.

    Bahahaha. Good find.
    Wonder if the seller was just unlucky enough that the scammer borrowed his bike profile. Funny either way.

    Can't trust them ninja owners Jinxy...

    Yea sounds weird, but it is kinda hard to scam someone on a bike, you see it in person. pay when you pick it up and do checks on it before you buy it.

    If you aren't doing that when spending that kinda money you kinda deserve it

    "Scams" arent always about selling a dodgy bike and getting the money that way. First contact from you theyve got a name, phone number maybe even an email address. From that much fun can ensue.

    It's what all the cool kids are doing :p
    I'll get around to fixing the one we bought and I then broke at some stage... Oops. Haha

    That one is really cheap, though. Although I do wonder how well it runs with all the hektik mods. Could be a good buy :up

    for those punters wishing to buy cheap Kevlar jeans, this may be an option: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/TRUST-ma...ng_Merchandise_Media&var=&hash=item338616384a

    Got them in the mail today, very impressed for $80 shipped! Mind you the price tag on the ones arrived today still show $149...
    Just as good as the $120 ones (Neo Australia brand) I had the accident in (which held very well I must admit, given the circumstances).

    So for those wishing to buy 'cheaper' brand Kevlar jeans, this is a recommendation!
