In the eBay listing, the seller tells people:
"PLEASE INVESTIGATE WHAT YOU'RE BIDDING ON THROUGH THE HUMMER CLUB OR OTHER HUMMER WEBSITES - DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT"
A prudent buyer would have found this website, and gotten much of the information he needed to make an informed decision - including Mutt's blow-by-blow analysis.
So where does the fault lie? The seller has misrepresented this bike, but the buyer (the bid's up to $5500 - with 3 days still left to go) has not performed due diligence - the information's available, and it's free. Or maybe the buyer has researched it, and is buying it anyway.
Oh yeah, the listing does NOT say anything about whether the bike runs or not.
P.S. Mutt noticed that not only are they the wrong decals (they're Model 165 decals) but they're on BACKWARDS!

I know it's "Buyer Beware!", but I feel for the buyer who might get this bike believing the seller's hype; I recommended to the seller to amend his description; we'll see if he does.
