Not bashing this guy in the least but I bought the tail piece from his bike a couple of weeks ago. He clearly stated that it had slight road rash on one side and that it was a repairable piece, NO other cracks or problems he stated.
The road rash he mentioned was clearly shown in a picture. However there were many other cracks and breaks that were not pictured or mentioned.
He had it listed for 90 bucks buy it now, I offered 45 and he accepted. A little high maybe but I assumed it would be a nice piece to work on for my bike.
When I received it, not only did it have the road rash, but a mounting tab was broken off and missing, a crack in the tail above the light about 1" long, and worst of all it was missing a huge 2"x4" piece from the underside nowhere near the road rash pictured.
I was a little disappointed but decided to forego the hassle of trying to return it or something, and decided to continue with my project. I have already repaired two cracks and made a new mounting tab. Once I really get rolling I'll post up some pics!
Anyway just make sure you get the whole story and request additional pictures if necessary especially on ebay!
