One of the reasons I cannot trust flee bay....

....the same bike is advertised differently....even at the same time...while the price is the same....the miles are way different....and so is the location....

I think that instead of listing the bike in both places (i.e in mv and ducati), which is very common in order to gain more views of the auction, he created 2 different listings. He might as well be a legitimate seller that made a mistake in the listing. I cannot explain the mileage difference though.

I am actually not interested in the bike itself...just saw it popping up twice...and it hit me again....certainly, if I would be interested, I would drop him a line asking...may be I am just too sensitive..

Mileage is different in each, too. With at least 29 feedbacks, this person has done enough eBay business that it's not a mistake. Chances are he'll take the highest of the two bids.

'Cause rare MV's get soooo many bids on eBay.

+1 Pry looking for the highest bid between the two listings

Come on Randman, it's a MV!

To bad it's not on the bike in those picks, unless he had it paint matched to the stock one.
