I guess you haven't any luck with vehicles on ebay. I have a friend that has purchased 2 LT's off of eBay and they have been every thing that has been listed and then some. I have purchased camera's, LT parts, etc. and all have been top notch.

I just bought an 03 LT through Ebay. GREAT find!!!!!

I've also bought and sold cars (2004 Jaguar XKR, 2003 Audi Allroad, others). Every deal has worked-out just fine. When buying, I won't buy unless I can physically inspect the vehicle myself or have an authorized authorized dealer give me a report.

With that said, buyer be ware.

Re: 07 LT on eBay?

I talked to the owner of snappy auctions, Zack: He said that the owner of the bike is a truck driver and currently driving in Canada. But he has the title in the store. It seems to be legimate place. They do not seem to be specilized in motorcycle sales.

kievgirl252 is the winning bidder.

I am wondering (Kiev is a city in Ukrain) how many Ukranian Ladies would be interested in LT? I am thinking somebody they know bidded on this once they reliazed that it was being undersold. The bike was not even listed in the correct category.

Re: 07 LT on eBay?

Hello all,
I'm new here. Bought my 03 LT on ebay a month ago and have been visiting this site since. The bike had 17k miles (now 19k, I can't stay off this beast) and looked great. It had a detailed service log and 16k of the miles were put on with x country rides by 12/2005. I went to RI to inspect it prior to buying.

With the help of this site I have changed the oil, filter and am in the midst of changing the trany and FD fluids. The explanations on this site are incredible and easy to follow. I'm waiting for the epoxy to set on the 14mm hex I'm building for the trany drain plug.

I haven't been on a bike since early 80's and the weight took a bit to get comfortable with. Fortunately at 6'2 and an eighth of a ton, I can, thus far, handle it in slow speed tight quarters.

The wife has even enjoyed the rides.

Thank you all for the great information.

I would not go as far to make this statement. I got my LT off of ebay. Orlando/Daytona BMW put bikes for sale on ebay, I liked the bike, test rode it, bought it!
No problem.
Just take a few and look at past sales the person has, look at feedback received and that will tell you all you need to know!

Early this spring, I bought my '07 on Ebay with 7K miles on it. Its been great. Of course there is always the inspection that has to live up to the claims and photos. Saved a bundle over older bikes with less equipment and not as good condition. Be wary and buy from reputable person with good reviews/track record.

For the record I bought my 3 LTs on eBay... and was very tempted to bid on a certain GT, but I would have to go to Ohio to get it... Not the kind of thing I do.

Re: 07 LT on eBay?

As with anything you need to be careful and make sure it isn't a scam. I bought my first bike off ebay and didn't see it until it showed up from Florida. I had pictures, talked to the guy who owned it and felt ok with the guy. The only issue I had was the windshield and that got covered by warranty.

My second bike I bought from Arizona and again didn't see it until it showed up. But then again I talked to the guy, had him send pictures and more. Felt ok with the guy and bought the bike. I haven't been disappointed yet.

I think ebay is a good place to buy stuff but I am always careful. If it is to good to be true then it is a scam. I have picked up deals but I can say that anything that was to good to be true has always worked out to be a scam when I looked into it further.

What is my point, ebay is a good place but you as the end buyer need to be careful. If you see a scam turn it in and save someone. Ebay is no different then buying off a for sale by owner site or something like cycletrader. Just follow some good common sense and most of the time all will work out.

Re: 07 LT on eBay?

Yes, careful is key. In my case I didn't pay for it until I showed up to drive it away, AFTER on site inspection and test ride. Felt it was worth the flight out to be safe. Plus the fact that it was still under warranty didn't hurt either.
