Ebay deal on 2011 Merlot RGU

Am I missing something here or is this a great deal even at the buy-it-now price?

Just bought on April 1st with 2600 miles, V&H Duals&Monster Ovals, TTS tuner and highway pegs...I may have missed something else. Only potential issue is I don't understand the 10th photo of the wiring near the neck, is wiring damaged or are they just showing how clean it is?

Disclaimer: I didn't own the bike, I don't know the seller(but seller states they're a HD dealer),note the $300 admin fee, I don't care if it sells ever, I like cats & dogs, etc. Maybe it was a rental but I wouldn't think so with the installed accessories...I imagine someone just turned it back it as they couldn't afford the monthy payments.

Maybe its all a joke as it was bought on April Fool's Day.

That's a starting bid price (reserve not met), or at least that's what showing now, not a buy it now price. The shop is Gator Harley in Leesburg Florida and the price on their website is $20995.

I meant the buy-it-now price. Many sellers are asking that and more for a 2010 EGU with these options, this is a 2011 RGU with 1yr9mths of warranty left. Who knows what the reserve is, probably $20k+.

Depending on how some buyer's state handles used cycle sales taxes, it could be a decent purchase.

I think some of the smokin' deals are coming out of Florida, seems the local economy is really soft for these types of big-$ decretionary purchases.

I have seen auctions where the reserve is just the Buy It Now price. In these cases, the auction is a farce. Just another form of bait and switch.

That being said, you are right, the Buy it price really is not that bad considering what you are getting.

I also wondered about the picture of the neck, why??? At first I though it was showing the VIN, but they have another picture specifically of that.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.
