    More than likely the auction is fake. Check the sellers feedback, they usually sell antique type
    items and collectibles. Now they are selling a high dollar bicyle? Also it's a 1 day auction, again,
    not the type of auction the seller usually has. The account seems to have been hi-jacked.

    All the red flags are there. Bidders id kept private. Must email first before bidding (at a
    different email than the sellers). Not the usual item for seller. 1 day auction (get in, rip em off
    before it smells to fishy and gets cancelled).

    When I emailed this *seller* they wrote they were based in France. When I asked them why the ebay
    account was from Kentucky, they replied with this gem:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dear Sir, The item is new, sealed in the original box and comes with all the factory accessories. It
    is 100% insured.We are a US company.

    Our main store is in Kentucky.The company in France was established in order to launch our products
    on the European market.We are shipping worldwide.Hoping this answers your doubts.

    Best reagards,
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Funny how "based in France" suddenly become "we are a US company" and with a "main store in
    Kentucky".

    I wonder how many people have lost their money so far?

    I reported this to Ebay as soon as I saw it, but it's probably too late.

    Email them back, tell them you live in France, and could pick up the bike in person (with payment in
    hand) if they just give you their address ...
