Seller lives in Belgium, seems the bike is in Australia.

Maybe we could convince Saxxon7 to get this one.

Put a bit of a slant on his riding.

I buy (and occasionally sell) a lot of things on the bay of evil and it never ceases to amaze me how little effort some people put into their advert. I always take time to have a good range of photos, as opposed to one, or two, badly out of focus shot that were taken on a potato instead of a camera. I write a full description, taking time to make sure that spelling, grammar, and punctuation are as good as I can get them. I put in web links to the manufacturer's original pages on the product, if they are available.

It normally only takes me a few moments to create a listing, and on quite a few occasions I have sold things for more than I paid for them after having a couple of year's usage/fun out of them. I often take a chance and have a very low start, with no reserve, and whilst this sometimes causes a few nail-biting moments, it can really drag in the bidders and give them a sense of ownership of an item.

He has put it in upsidedown in the hope to attract more attention. It was a method of advertising used in 60s and 70s and was doubtful if it worked then. It makes people talk about but doesnot sell more. Besides that he cant even speak english.Very Happy

Actually might be a technical problem. Some cameras, such as Apple Ipads, write EXIF information in a way that causes web sites to invert the picture; and the poster doesn't have control over it unless they can rewrite that information.
