Default Is this a creditable seller on Ebay - Mung88

Im looking for a new fairing for my bike and this user on ebay named mung88 sells alot on nice looking things on there but i am un sure if it creditable becuase he is located in Hong Kong. If anyone has bought anything from him or knows someone has please let me know. Here is one of his post
http://cgi.ebay.com/919-B-ABS-Fairin...QQcmdZViewItem

He has great seller feedback and has sold a lot of items but its alot of money to be throwing around. im to new on ebay to contact him or any buyers from him so any information would be greatly appreaciated.

I got a front fairing for my F4 from him.....I have not checked the fitment yet but the color was way off. Now I have to repaint it to match my bike.

I can only guess that many of the aftermarket fairing sets that are coming out of China, may be coming out of the same wholesaler/factory.

The reason I say this is because, like Mung88's and Nicecycle's selection, when I searched for parts for my bike (97 cbr F3) - ALL of the sets have the exact same flaw in the tail section. On both the left and right side sections of the tail, there is a strange groove where those sections are to touch the rear center. You can fit two fingers through the gaps that created between the side and center section.

How do I know? Because I bought one of those cheap crappy sets from someone else in China. You get the "make to order" BS, wait for 2 - 3 weeks for fabrications and 1 - 2 weeks shipping. The set will cost you just as much as the shipping and that's where you get screwed!

The center upper cowling on mine had a section under the headlight that was about as thick as two pieces of paper. The plastic pins for the tail didn't align correctly with the boot mounts and caused the pins to snap off. Don't get me started on all the pins and mounts for screws... they are ALL glued on to the inside of the fairings and like to snap off because they must have used Elmer's glue.

I ordered mine in gloss black and it looked great while I was unwrapping the parts out of the box. I went to wipe down the parts with a microfiber rag and the crap scratched. I think there was ONE layer of thin coated paint.

If I sound bitter, it's because all of this happened in the last two days. *****!

Needless to say, I'm now prepping my original parts for paint and lost out on $580 due to being too lazy to do my own work.

nicecycle (user name), thank you for allowing me to use you and your fake website that sells knock-offs, www.nicecycle.com, as a prime example of someone to NEVER buy from .

1. Call the website/seller and ask where they are located. If it's a scam or "knock off" (selling cheap stuff), they'll not tell you where they're at or make up some foney stateside address. Tell them you live 30 min away and want to make a visit....see what happens. Shady businesses never have an actual physical address listed on the website, only P.O. Boxes.

2. Do a simple google search of the seller/website and see what the results are.

3. Ask fellow bikers/consumers on forums like this.

Hmm, let's see what we can find on nicecyle (username) and that knock-off gear webite, www.nicecyle.com:

1. I called, got nothing, only a hired actor leaving a recording.
No physical address listed on the site, only a P.O. Box:

NICECYCLE
P.O Box 1232
Brighton, MI 48116

2. Doing a google search found some interesting results on www.nicecycle.com:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=+www.nicecycle.com&aq=f&oq=

Decide for yourselves.....


Blue Skies,
