Selling a bike on Ebay?

Who has sold a bike on Ebay? Good experience or pain in the butt? I've been trying to sell my 04 RC in So. Cal. recently, but no luck, just low-ballers. So, I'd like to reach out farther, but have never sold anything on Ebay before. Let me know, thanks

Based on the bidding, and what has already sold, there is about a $4,000 ceiling on what people are willing to pay on E-Bay. YMMV

I buy quite a bit on E-bay, but have never sold anything so don't really know. I've seen the down side of deals that friends have been duped on though (on bikes).

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

I was a victim of a bike purchase on ebay. Bought a zx7r that had many pictures etc. It showed up in boxs. I knew the motor was bad but i didnt know the entire bike was disassembled. It didnt have one good piece. Made my money back parting it out but it was a pain in the ass. Sellar disappeared before the bike arrived. Live and learn

I bought my first RC51 off of Ebay. When selling I would keep the distance you're advertising to a distance someone is willing to drive or your willing to deliver to. When you have to ship a bike is when the process becomes a big pain in the ass.
