Are all the pics yours or just the ones of the bike?

I dont one think it's a "scam" rather than someone who is bad at ebay reusing the pics you took because for what ever reason he doesn't have any of his own. Any chance the seller is the guy who currently owns your drag bike? I've seen that happen before where subsequent sellers just reuse the listing pic they saw when they bought it.

I have had my pictures pulled from photobucket and used as representations of parts people are trying to sell.

All the pictures are mine, including the pipe, I sold the rest of the bike a piece at a time. Even the text in the description is mine. And the location is mine( painesville, oh) it's pretty weird to me.

Sometimes people do that as market research to see if theres enough demand in making or selling things. I have a few commercial projects where someone claimed one as their own, but I soon got it removed.

The pipe was modified wth an o2 sensor bung and an extra mod to the megaphone, definitely doesn't look like anyone else's pipe. And I shipped it out of state, it's certainly not in Painesville.

is the webpage a known American classifieds site? Perhaps it's just generating ad revenue, there's certainly enough adverts on it.

Hover over the first picture and chinese writing appears lol.

I've never heard of the page before. That was really weird to do a google search and find pictures of an old bike from a few years ago.
I blame North Korea.

Looks like a BOT driven store picking up ebay and other listings en masse. The question is Why and where do these guys fit in?


BTW, those GT750 crankcases are really nice. Thanks.
