Red K 75 in Fla. Deal of the day.

So, this is either the deal of the day, or a total scam.

Check out the  k75 that was posted one day ago.

Automatic....I missed that.

 Sometimes legitimate ads have incorrect data in that section.

I got one too wanting my email, which they already had since I emailed them...?
 Update I just got the same email as you husband died looking for a quick sale bad memories more pics though I told her I’d buy it but it’s a 5 Hour Dr. and asked her to call me  so I can see if this is legit if I do get it it looks to have  low seat which I will offer up here, but looks like a long shot at this point, And if anyone needs the automatic transmission let me know

Wow, free shipping too

 for the reply, as i mentioned in my 1st email, my daughter and I decided to go for fresh start so we sold the house and moved to my parents in Omaha,NE. The bike is here in Omaha, stored with all the papers at the shipping company (DAS) sealed and ready to be delivered to its new owner. The transaction will be done ONLY through ebay buyer protection, They will handle the shipping, the payment and the paper exchange. Dealing through eBay, we are both 100% covered and nothing can go wrong with our bike or your money. You will benefit of free delivery (3 days top) and a 7 day period to test, inspect and accept the bike. Your money will stay in your possession during the whole process, you will release the payment only after you inspect and/if you accept the bike.
Shipping is included in this price as I almost closed the deal with another buyer but he was unable to buy it anymore due to knee injury. I've already prepared shipping for him as he was out of state.
If you wish to proceed with the purchase, please provide me your full name, shipping address and phone number, so I can contact ebay regarding our transaction. They will send you the information about purchasing. You will receive the bike with all the necessary papers (clean title, user’s manual, insurance etc).

Yeah the free shipping and the shipping to send it back If you don’t like it will Cost more then The sale price, Like I said if it sounds too good to be true it probably is

Honestly? Last time when i give my number to someone, went pretty bad..but i'm sure that ebay will offer phone support , and they can sort everything out for you...please don't get me wrong.

That was the last reply before I said don,t wast my time, goodbyb

I agree, most likely a scam. Sorry that I posted this, but the wording of the ad fooled me. Hope that no one loses any $ on this.

I have noticed that the "scam " ads on CL, are being composed with more credibility of late. A few years ago, these had poor English and very odd descriptions, compared to the item photo. Buyer beware.

Nebraska is especially beautiful this time of year—glistening ethanol ears growing in the deep soil and abundant sunlight—amber waves of grain, too.

I doubt any Motobricker would fall for this, we are smart enough to own one of the best motos ever built.
