"Lads and lasses - I've just put a couple more very tasty nicely restored Italian frames on ebay. Bobbiker is my moniker. Take a look."

Hi CR:

Beware of this guy!!! Last year I bought a Colnago frame from him. It needed some repair and a repaint. He wanted to repaint and decal the frame like a 1970s Super. I said no because I didn't want to mislead a future buyer.

He also jerked me around, changing his price after the work had begun, and he never met the turnaround time. When I complained about the new price he said he would have to check his records. When I complained about the turnaround, he blamed me for the delay. It was always my fault.

Finally when the job was finished and I paid him, he returned my check, saying he thought I did not want the bike. He said it had been sold on Ebay. I checked his feedback and asked for a item number: NOTHING. This is the guy who called New Yorkers cheats. How many bikes/frames has he sold that are not what he claims-??
