Somebody is smoking crack. $4000 for a PD tank and seat/rack.. maybe if a working bike was underneath it.

Yeesh.

The worst thing about listings like this is that his statements are false.

The tank (in primer) is still available from BMW for a measly $1270.00
BMW has plenty of stock in Germany.
The seats are truly NLA from BMW, but are available form other sources in Germany.
The rear rack is in stock at BMW in Germany, lists for $149.00
Weather or not he knows they're false or not is another matter.
I guess it's time for a friendly heads up about the facts.
Oh, he also states that the kit was only on the bike for 6months.
I find that a little hard to believe. Look at the stone chips on the front of the tank and the severe discoloration on the roundels and severe sun damage to the orange stickers on the sides of the tank.
Where was this stuff stored, out on his roof?
The sad thing is that some dumbass will probably buy it for $4K

Yet another CJ750, and the seller is refusing all reason. Y'all hit him with the truth.

I know I'D be eager to send thousands of $ to some guy with zero eBay feedback on the off chance that he has a real collectible wartime BMW.

He has been officially reported to Ebay, and I sent him a letter explaining that since he had the title, he either is a scammer or was the victim of one depending on what the title actually says.
Be interesting to see what he says, if anything.
