Just spotted this on ebay, seem a bit over the top price wise to me?

As I've said a bit over the top price wise, from a seller with zero feedback, not this little black duck, I'm sure that some will buy it. Looks ok but does it hold fuel without leaking that the real question :?:

His price like his attitude is poor, especially with no ebay history under that name at least.
The other items he is selling demand a quick pick up or he will relist! I'm tempted to bid and pay if successful and arrive on day 8 to pick them up. Better still I'd ask sister No.3 to pick them up ( she lives that way). Wouldn't give much for his chances if they had been relisted when she arrived!

Ebay is a time wasters paradise as all ebay sellers know (including me) so im sure the guidelines laid down are due to time wasters. If you have any doubts about conforming to the rules then ask before you bid & follow up on your bid correctly with common courtesey & the transaction will be fine.

Too many people are either thick, or so stupid,or trying to take advantage of the seller so common sense & communication will prevail

Im not working for Ebay but see & have been on the end of buyers :roll:

I spent some time with the seller last night, looking aver his GS derived beast. Unimog 404 wheels with the centres rewelded on the opposite way to give a wide track and agricultural tyres, twin 160lt LPG tanks,LDV power steering,full roll cage frame in double cab tray back configuration.
He seems genuine to me, a really nice bloke to talk to and open to offers on what he's selling. He's not done ebay before and got emailed "told off" as he put it for the content of his listing.

I forgot to look over the fuel tank though..Derr!!

The tank has been labelled as scrap, so no need for anyone to get too excited :lol:

The seller has just pulled the auction,for the reason follow the link. As I've said £150 for a leaking fuel tank, to some thats a good buy -Hmm, :roll: I think it would have been wise to test it, first :shock: This way the seller would not have ended up with egg on his face :oops: or foot in mouth :wink:
