    I looked at about eight pictures. Didn't you?

      No, because you can't tell from 50 pictures what damage could be in a part that is not in the pics. We find broken or cracked parts after inspecting a bike, only because we pulled it apart.

        How do you know the bike wasn't pulled apart and thoroughly checked?

        And to others, what if all of the parts were replaced, with only an immaculately restored frame the only original part? Is it "like new" then?

I would be very cautious when buying a used bike anyway, but I have worked on crashed bikes quite a bit and I can usually spot if it had a lie down. If it was repaired correctly and the guy would disclose it on inspection, there is no problem, but if I'd knew it to be a repaired write off and he wouldn't tell me, I'd be majorly pissed off! Do you know if it was repaired properly? Why was it written off? Is there damage they didn't notice, which might lead to a crash?

          That's why I stay away from used bikes, unless it's something rare I would like to own....

          If you would have bothered to read all my posts, you would have seen my comment in regard to that...

              Might have a bent crank then.
              The greatest excitement comes from besting who you were yesterday.

                  I once bought a bike that slid down the road, hit a kerb and knocked the end of the crank clean off. Straightened the frame, found another engine and sold it for a nice profit.

                    did you disclose everything to the person you sold it to?

                      Too long ago to remember I'm afraid.

                          Well he didn't come back screaming "Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo", so he must have been happy with the deal.

But it's a beautiful bike that had minimal damage, if is the same one as in the Mannheim auction. My Hyper was dropped out of the showroom and had similar damage.
                            It's not a car, it's an Alfa Romeo motorcycle.
                            Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

                            when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.
