I reported it last night. Trying to sell it outside of ebay.

It was a bit of a wierd one TBF. The guy selling it looked legit, some Chinese shop with 90,000 feedbacks. Yet he's openly telling people to contact him outside ebay for an invoice and not to bid on the item. hen the ad itself looked like it had been copy/pasted from someone elses ad. and the bike didn't match up with the description.

And the bike itself, a 3yr old tallboy, for a grand, whilst cheap, is not completely out of the realms of possibility, especially if it's in China. I'd have been interested to see how he was planning on getting it to the UK though.
