I bought this bike on eBay $700 USD; and not so patiently waiting for it to arrive. Anyone know what it's worth? Seller says everything works great; serviced a year ago. Did I over pay?

Have you better pictures and/or a spec fellow?

Welcome.

Bummer!! I sure hope it's in great shape! I know I'll have a kick ass time riding it, sooooo I suppose it'll be worth it. As long as I don't need to replace anything.
I'll update when it arrives with pix and it's condition.
Thanks for the input!

The amount suggested is probably closer to low/middle so as long as its all good you wont have overpaid as such. Just paid higher end of market value.

That was with free shipping too. Suggested shipping was $125 USD.
We'll see if it's worth it.
Thanks again

I'm not sure. It's from Canada to US and it's fully insured.
