Re: NEED YOUR GUYS HELP .. 97 GENERAL LEE,PAYED IN FULL BUT NEVER GOT IT

i dont have an orange one and its far from mint,but
if you wanted to do some work,i have a black dk general lee frame fork neck seatpost clamp etc etc,basically the whole bike with no wheels or cranks or brakes
i bought it with a bad hub rear wheel on it and fishbone 3 piece cranks,had a friend drop me off another wheel,that hub was bad too..it uses big hubs in the back.

the worst part of the entire bike is where the 990 brakes mount one of the brake studs broke.
the rest of the frame forks look good and the stickers are good but the paints not the greatest,esp the forks which for some reason prior owner painted gold.
im guessing it was a young kid because he painted the forks and the wheel and the tire..lol
i can take pics if its ?? interesting to ya.

if this is anything you can use lmk ,id take some parts in trade or whatever,look at it,make an offer,im not greedy.
i bought it originally to fix up for a park ride but snagged another haro recently
im in western ny right next to ohio.

Kind of shady, the Craig's list ad has been removed. I would report the seller to eBay.


I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

Is this supposed to mean that this bike is the one you were supposed to of paid for on a Craigslist ad? With a money order, that Craigslist clearly and unmistakably warns against doing due to scams.
Not tryin to be negative or anything, cause I am genuinely sorry to hear about this type of douchebaggery, but how do you intend to prove that this bike has been stolen? I am assuming that you are feeling that it has been stolen from you.
Did you report the listing?

Kind of hell! Whoever would've won, if it gets reported and stopped anyway, probably would've never got it in the mail.

+1 this is why it's reiterated not to send mo on Craig's list. Also' for proof, when I have sent money orders in e past I take pictures of the money order and get it certified to prove the person received it, as well as insure it. I also go as far as taking a pic of the marked envelope handing it to the post lady. She always hates that though but I tell her I'm just covering my ass.

Unfortunately this situation sucks ball bag. You shouldn't have to go through these steps.....

KARMA is a bitch and that fool who jacked your money will get nipped in the butt one way or another, it's just a matter of time.

You should have been the high bidder on Ebay, then told the guy to send the bike you already paid for.  Also I thought internet crimes were a federal offense?....

Please don't take this the wrong way, I'm with ya on this one. But you have no legs on this one I'm afraid. You answered a public classified ad on the computer, you paid for an item in a manner that is clearly stated as being shady and not recommended, you've never had possession of said item and you yourself claimed to not be able to prove it in this very thread. How again is a multi-billion dollar entity like eBay supposed to sympathize?

You must have gotten mailing address right? Did you get P.O. box or physical address? I would contact the police in that town and maybe the post office too? Best of luck.

Save the emails and whatever you got. Unless he has proof he shipped it to you, then you do have a leg to stand on. Of course as stated above -this is not the recommended way to purchase but do everything you can.....I would!
