I use to work at a shop and found out that many places buy bikes via auction from the the manufacter as damaged and then sell them on the showroom floor without disclosing that they were damaged. I was about to drive 10 hours to www.procycleusa.com in missouri for an 06 YZ450 for $4799 OTD. I called back and asked if these were damaged bikes and he said some of them are and some of them are not, they don't know until they get them to the shop. Supposedly they buy a bunch of them for a very cheap prices and some might be damaged. I put a deposit down on a specific VIN # so i wanted him to check and see if i have a damaged bike. He said the mechanical warranty is still good but the cosmetic warranty that covers stickers and plastic is void. I asked him what was wrong with the bike and he said the tech certified it as in good shape. What ever that is worth? He said he would check the bike out and let me know what was actually wrong with it?? Does that suck or what??? Not disclosing damaged bikes? :mad: I guess the too good to be true rings true again!! So if he says it's just scratches do i have him take digital pics of the bike, radiator and the scratched plastic or do i just walk away from this shady dealership and pay the extra $700-800 for a piece of mind and not support a bunch of crooks. The only problem is that the dealerhsip i worked at in denver did the same crap, is this a common occurence in the industry. I guess if a shop is offering a smoking deal the first thing to ask is it damaged but i guess they could lie to you as well??
