i like how my thread has moved from one type of fuckwit to a completely different kind.
but back on topic:
fwiw i dont think this auction is that outrageous. if he was trying to sell it for 2k, yeah go your hardest but as-is its not really that bad.
nor do i. i just think it’s outrageous the sort of bullshit this guy has concocted to make his bike seem like some kind of “dream build”.
it’s just a bike he threw together cheaply to try to rip some kid off. cheap, no-name components, no brakes and platform pedals?
it might not be that bad for the price, but the guy presents himself as a massive douche.
funny how I suggested that this guy might have stolen parts to make his “WUNDER BUILD” and ironically it’s brought to the fore that someone here has knowledge of bike theft, and is harboring the said offender.
It’s almost unthinkable to not at least win his auctions and meet with him in person after reading that. I’m thinking of at least bidding and passing on his address for you guys to make it known to others. If you even suspect him of such the least you could do is report him to the police because at least they will try to verify if it’s true … I’d just punch his teeth in on your saying so and that isn’t entirely a good thing.
I hate bike thieves … they should be burnt at a stake until they confess
^There was some dude’s name and a facebook link mentioned last time this came up (pretty sure it was subsequently edited out of the thread).
Can’t remember what the deal was though and what eventuated from any of it.
I agree with Pip, name and shame or at least, j-ho, post this thief’s ebay account or something
