I've bought 2 bikes off of ebay and they were great purchases for me. I sold my first bike on ebay and it went well. Bought a car on ebay. That went shitty shitty shitty man. Lately I've been getting a lot flakyass sellers on ebay. But usually its pretty good. Yeh, gotta check feedback first...a couple of times i've had issues with sellers after the fact just to find out their feedback mentioned exactly the issue i was having.
