FOUR RULES TO BUY YOUR USED MOTORCYCLE ON E-BAY

Buying your first used motorcycle on eBay can be a little scary, but if you're careful enough you won't have any problems. I have bought 6 motorcycles through ebay auctions for me and for my family and never got any sort of problem. Just make sure you follow these guidelines and you will get your motorcycle in no time.
1. Don't be Afraid of the Seller
If you're going to buy a used motorcycle, then make sure you clear all your doubts and fears before perfoming the payment, because after that many people will stop caring and don't reply to you. Check his trade ratings, and most importantly pay attention to the negative feedback (if he has any). If you're still unsure, then e-mail to the users that gave negative feedback and ask for informations about the seller.
2. Ask For Updated Pictures of the Motorcycle
Lots of sellers like to include a photo when they first bought the motorcycle, which will be flawless. How many times people got their used motorcycle with a few damaged pieces and/or several scratches that weren't visible on auction picture? Make sure you ask him to take some photos from the motorcycle's tires, engine and wheels.
3. Make the deal inside eBay
Lots of scammers will ask you to settle things off eBay, often claiming they their private message inbox is full and it is quicker. Don't fall for it, because if the worst happens you won't catch him but if he tries to that on eBay, he will be punished.
4. Ask for a Copy of the Documents
This is just to make sure you don't hear "I already sent the documents, didn't you got them?". I always ask for a copy of the documents before performing the payment, that way if the guy tries to scam me, I have some information about him.
