Please check my Ebay history – it is at 100% positive feedback for a reason and almost a hundred percent of my Ebay sales are related to motorcycles, mini-bikes or motorcycle parts. I have been riding, racing, restoring and collecting mini bikes and motorcycles for over 35 years. This is more than a hobby for me – motorcycles are my passion and I have decided to sell a couple of my bikes because it is getting more difficult for me to ride in my older years.
