    from a dealer in florida's site...i went to have a look after seeing some new motoredbikes in town & learning they hadn't checked us out before buying, they paid $15 more total than my 69CC "70" for a 64CC "80", & the hardware was as cheap (not merely inexpensive, since they paid more) as it gets:

    please!!! bottom-line sales practices are gonna hurt the movement. i've refrained from posting the seller's name, because all the greedy ones do this...but i think it s*cks!!!

    before you buy: pick 3 different sources, then email all of them the same questions, using "cc" so they know they're competing...that outta get their attention :(

    this guy's listed a $2000 honda-50 powered mb as a whizzer, no bids of course...somebody has to speak up over at ebay...not that they'd care.

    i just said that :p

    if i see any bids, i'm gonna have to ask the seller about it being a real whizzer.

    I don't think it says whizzer in the description, only the title. As you know, many eBayers will do this to generate hits on their auctions. He probably should have said "not Whizzer" Kinda cheezy thing to do in my opinion.

    not see what you mean, still a crooked practice, yeah.

    he knows he'll mislead the un-knowing & that's who he's after.
  8. I wonder if the people selling Whizzers mind that he is using their name.(just a thought)

    anybody who would pay 2k$ for that is definitely un-knowing :rolleyes:
    but, at the same time, ebay should be able to do something about misleading titles:mad:

    as i'm starting to have a more comprehensive look at the various engine/kit combos, i'm realizing what these sneaky-snakes should be realizing...

    tell us the truth about what you're offering, we'll still buy the stuff, unless you have reason to be lying about your merchandise. if you're an honest supplier, telling the truth in engine representation will shine the spot even brighter on the liars.

    sneaky ness gets you money fast but for in the long run being truth full is better the more you are trusted the people you will have for sales b/c word of mouth is better then just puting a post could be the seller saying that but being sneaky will only go so far man

    I could build something better than that...heck, I am building something better than that. Including a new Honda engine and all the parts, I'll have about $500-$600 into it. If I could sell it for $2,000, I could give up the practice of law.

    i love the lil engines, they're (almost) exactly what the doctor ordered...but the marketplace, for the most part, is anything but happy...

    darn-tootin i'm jaded, the only good thing i see coming out of the current setup is a movement towards a domestic happy-time industry.
