when i do similar deals i keep quiet about it. that might make me even more unethical than those honest enough post it about, but it reserves a semblance of civility- and makes both low seller, and higher buyer (and me) feel good about the exchanges. and in the end, money is just paper, but working a deal where everyone is satisfied is a good thing right?
I've paid both more and less than what other people would or have paid for similar products. The way I look at it, with most products, neither side is going to complete a deal unless they are satisfied with the end results.

If you manage to turn a profit on a bike, the more power to you, as long as you aren't being deceptive. Even with that, it is "Let the buyer beware."
Do you talk to people you meet on the road?
