I knew that ebay's prices were low but not that low. My local dealer offered more on an outright buy-out than ebays closed auction price.

That can happen. Hell, they may even post on Ebay themselves to get them off the floor plan payment program. I used to work for a Hummer dealer that sold used ones on Ebay to make quick sales. Maybe dealers are lowering old inventory the same way

There are some really good prices out there, and also a few scams. I watched for several months, and found the bike I wanted. I checked out the seller, and contacted him prior to making a bid. I bought my 2005 Road King Classic off eBay, and couldn't be happier. It was a really good deal, and it turned out really well!:clap:

I bought my 06 Night Rod from eBay. I called the seller and asked him what he wanted to get. He gave me a price and I told him I'd pay it if he'd end the auction. Quick, simple and easy. The hard part was driving five hours to get the bike.

I bought my 2003 Deuce off eBay in 2005. I got it for about $2500 less than what I could find one for within a 300 mile radius. It only had 2100 miles on it and was flawless. I had to drive for 8 hours to get it, but, the wife was a real trooper. She knew it was the bike I had always wanted. Some guy had bought the bike for his wife and she scared herself on it. So they traded it in for a Land Rover. So I show up at the dealership in St Louis and theres the bike sitting on the showroom floor. Haven't looked back since. I almost have it paid for so now I'm looking to add a touring type model to the stable. I'm leaning towards the Road King Classsic. I think my ride to Sturgis ths year made me want the touring model even more, but, I don't plan on ever getting rid of the Deuce.

peace--

New and used car/truck dealers are great places to score deals on bikes, they usually take them in under market value, and don't get a lot of play on them. After they've looked at them on the floor for about 2 months they're ready to bail out. I got one that way & saved about 3 g's.

Metric dealers used to be a great place to get deals when those poor lost souls traded in their Harleys. They did not want the Harleys sitting around their showrooms for very long.
