so let me get this straight, the guy is pretending to sell a bike. he is hoping a person will believe him and pay him say $4000 for a scam?

you discovered your bike on sale by a friend who happen to run across your pictures and knew it was your bike?

Common scam

It's becoming a common scam- most always international too- because of the inherent limitations in legality of overseas transactions and monetary recourse: Typically however it happens in reverse-> Example:
Scumbag A finds a for-sale advertisement, emails indicating he/she is located overseas and wants to by your thing (bike, parrot, whatever) They offer payment via bank check, only they'll give some bullshit :bs story about how international legality and ramifications make it hard for them to send the correct amount- they want to OVERPAY you, and trust you to send back money via western union... (yeah right!) the real kick in the ass, they're intial bank check gets overturned a month later- THAT is thanks to actual laws in place for international money transfers- So if the scam goes their way, here's what will happen:

1) The listed seller receives a cashiers check for too much money- deposits it, money hits their account and they think everything is cool.
2) They ship out the item
3) They western-union the residual cash
4) A month later the cash that hit their account is withdrawn, and the seller gets *****ED by losing the item, the residuals AND the initial payment. :fact

nice huh?

Moral of the story: If it's too good to be true.....

I mean common- use your f****ing brain: Does 4,000 sound right for a gem 02 R1? :2bitchsla

Look at the "sellers" previous auctions......womens cloths. Seems like someone hijacked someone elses name and is using the positive feedback rating to try and scam someone.
