With Ohlins, but not really?

So I thought this ad was interesting. Listed with very nice parts and the price and pictures reflect accordingly...but then read a little further.

All the good bits are sold??? WTF?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/231239646524

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

Semper Fidelis

Saw this the other day and the exact same thoughts came to mind. Read the auction listing again and it almost sounds like the seller is referring to the spares being gone (the OEM equipment that the nice bits replaced).

Ebay can be dodgy to begin with. This would be a have someone take a look in person item before bidding.

That's how I read it - OEM spares are not all there/included. Not unusual.

That is what I thought they meant, but the listing is poorly written to know which one for sure. But one can always message the seller. Certainly someone who is buying should do that.
