I played around with one of these guys a while ago, I replied "Great, I am due to come up there next week for a holiday, could I take a look then and if I like it, pay for it and take it away" that was for a Comet engine and gearbox for cheap money, surprisingly I did not receive a reply.
It's a shame it is listed as "A great investment" instead of "A famous and fast bike that goes like shit off a shovel".
NEWSFLASH, The seller has just relocated to St Kilda, but don't worry, it is still possible to purchase the bike, couldn't be any easier, just deposit X amount of thousands of pounds into his account and he will stick it on a pallet and despatch the same day, lets not all be so cynical, he might be a perfectly honest chap, might even give you a no holds barred 10 year guarantee!
If the bike that purports to be for sale did in fact once belong to Brian East, do we actually know where that bike is now, I think it most unlikely that it is currently on the Isle of Lewis, the scam is following such a well trodden path, great value, inconvenient location, can only deal with sale at arms length for various spurious reasons, I would not be tempted to part with a farthing, if we still used them. When these bogus adverts appear on eBay I normally clic on other items for sale, they are normally listing a swathe of two and four wheel bargains, but always directing enquiries elsewhere as they are unable for various highly suspicious reasons to deal with the sale themselves. By all means have a bit of fun with these scammers if you can spare the time, but on no account give them any of your money. Ron Thomas was trying to help an overseas member that has parted with a considerable sum of money for a set Brampton forks, same type of scam, send me the money and I will send you the forks, only they didn't. You have been warned.That is Brian East's old Grey Comet known in the section as the Grey Vomit.
