    The last Norton I looked at was an Electra, in a strange light brown color, down in Rhode Island, USA. It virtually new, sold by a former dealer, off of his old stock. Sadly, it was missing misc. parts. The former dealer had been slowing stripping it and selling pieces off in the UK.

    I don't see what there is to be suspicious about. Unless you think its for sale for a dollar - because it isn't. 1$ can mean $1,000 or just that no price is stated.

    Other than that there is nothing weird or non weird about it. Bike can be great or shit based on the ad. The fact that they might want to film you seems legit - they would want to disclose it as thry probably prefer getting the footage if possible.

    I just don't see how the claim would in any sense benefit any scam. At least I wouldn't pay extra just because I thought that I could end up on TV.

    Thanks. I'm surprised it's such a foreign experience to others.
    It is only a "foreign" experence because the ones being critical on here have either met the guy in person or are friends of his and can vouch for him. It is one of the advantages to this site - most of the regulars know each other IRL.
