    Default Stolen Welbike

    Hi to all,
    I have found advert with welbike two months ago. All gone well until what I have payed for it to the seller. After then the communication stoped

    Could I ask if somebody know this welbike or know anything about it?

    Hi Radek, it is certainly very distinctive with that home made petrol tank.

    Where was the seller located?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi all, I've just come across this thread and I enquired about this Welbike and the seller said he was in Dundee? My friend lives in Dundee so I asked if he could go around and view it and then the emails stopped? Lucky me??

    I don't remember who said it, but the guy here who asks the seller to put a dollar bill on top of the item..


    ...is a genius.

    Shame it had so many modifications done to it ( fuel tank, handlebars, bike headstock, cut down & modded fork tube, etc.. ) all probably done by a minibike enthusiast back in the 60's ( I know - I was one back then )

    I've seen this bike posted before somewhere, can't remember if it was for sale then but there were inquiries on it by the 'owner', or an interested party IIRC. I wonder if it was here?

    Take a look at this, there is a code at the bottom that may help trace the guy selling it if you report it to Craigslist, assuming the scammer hasn't just lifted the pic's.
