There was a similar one on Gumtree recently. I pursued it for a while, knowing what it was, but having fun playing the game. He wanted the money payed via escrow...with yahoo finance, who don't offer this service. A scam, pure and simple. Each sent email I asked for an address at which the bike coul...

Seen this? http://www.dirtbagchallenge.com/rules.htm
I wonder how many bikes would enter, in Australia, with a strict $1000 total cost limit? Many of the donor bikes on this website couldn't even be purchased here for that price! Still, a cool idea.

Thespis, I'm off the rig Tuesday week, provided we don't get rained in for the third rotation running! (Just as well choppers are like choppers in fun value.) Pm me a reminder (or ring me - numbers in the members list), and I'll do a whole volume rundown for you when I get back. Cheers Dave Thanks ...

I just logged on, read Hemitech's reply, and went to APCs site to get their phone number. I will phone them during business hours today. It appears that maybe someone's had a go at APC....or this forum's little squabbles preceeds it. The offending statement seems to have disappeared from their websi...

My point is .... do Kikker claim the Hardnock is NOT made in China, but IS made in the USA? Yes they do. Their version of "made" is the same as "assembled". Australian law doesn't see things that way.. If you make the statement they do on their website.....it would be false advertising. Carpe Diem,...

If Hemitech is correct, then they are clearly guilty of false advertising, and if it can be proven, should be taken to task over it....

Interesting .... if you go to http://www.apcycles.com.au/ (a link from the ebay auction) the seller claims " ALL TANKS ARE MADE IN THE UK NOT INDIA ". If they are actually made in India, and this is from an Australian business website, couldn't this statement be construed as false advertising? Unles...

And yes, there is Aussie content, and not just harley. (Ironically, nearly all Japanese content is harley. I have the full collection, would you like a list of issues which may have content of interest? If your an Adelaide bloke I could lend em to you. (If you hand over a hostage perhaps? :twisted:...
