Townmate for a fiver - but its not

The £5 is only for front indicator lens, how do eBay let them get away with that. If its a forum member take a slapped

I'm not sure I see a problem here. The title clearly says breaking for spares, indicator lense only.

This is re-iterated in the description, and the seller states that any part a buyer wants will be listed separately once requested, thus creating a sale that is fully compliant with ebay policy (and profits Smile).

I've seen loads of listings like this over the years, and never once thought I would get a complete bike if I bought the listed item.

Why mess about selling it like this, surely much better to put complete bike on for £50 starters & sell it in one go than selling individual bits with all the hassle of post & packing. Townmate parts dont make big money & only certain parts sell, most of the parts are frankly worthless as there are lots already on eBay & there are few bikes out there needing spares. As for an indicator lens for a fiver, he must be joking you can buy new ones for £3.95 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yamaha-T-80-Townmate-1983-1996-A-Market-Indicator-Lens-Rear-R-H-Amber-/180998756086?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts_13&hash=item2a245dd6f6

I broke one sold the lot with in a few weeks and helped out a few folk out,  :d\\'-\\': 
Ive a few bits left but not much.
I am not a fan of breaking bikes unless there well beyond any sort of repair and tbh I was sad to break the T80 as I rode it before doing so and it was great albeit in poor condition.
