    • He will take any and every opportunity to screw you over, and is a generally shitty human being. Be very cautious when if you decide to make a deal with him, but I would highly recommend against ever acknowledging his existence. - Trogdor

    • Had one good transaction, and then sent money for wheels as a second transaction. It's been 2 months and I haven't received a refund or the wheels. Claims he has no time to ship. - Karl Schuttler (freixenet)

    • Bought an A3 flywheel off him in Sept '11. Said his motor went missing and refunded my money. PM's me 3 days later saying his neighbor stole the motor and he got it back. Said I could still have the flywheel if I wanted. So I paypal'd him at the same address as I did before. He e-mails me the next day saying to paypal him under a new paypal e-mail address because his account is under review from paypal because someone has a claim out on him. He says he can't refund me because his account is locked. Refused to communicate further. I can't cancel the payment because I sent as personal payment by accident instead of for services. Do not buy from this kid. Very shady. - Shobeaker
    • I Bought an A3 motor from him and was told I was going to get tracking info on it the next day. I waited a week no emails or anything so I filed a claim on him and got a nasty reply saying I was trying to scam him. He decided to get a new Paypal and, when I won the claim I was only refunded half of my money! Deal with him at your own risk. - Puch_man78

    • Made lots of posts about different things for sale. Had pictures etc. Sent him a partial payment for a part. Said he would get back to me the next day with a shipping quote and never did. Two weeks later I'm filing a paypal claim. He's been talking to people I know about other parts he has "for sale" just yesterday which would put him still talking to others but not responding to me at 2 weeks. I sent multiple emails, made a very cordial post trying to get in touch with him on MA and waited very patiently. NOTHING. People in SF say they aren't familiar with him. He's continuing to log into MA but still not responding to me. DO NOT send Nick Ebert any money. If you do certainly do not send it as a gift, send it as payment for goods so you have recourse - imthepilot

    • Beware of this guy. I Listed a request for some Tomos parts and he PMd me right away. Had a few day long conversation via PM and ironed out details. Sent him a Postal Money Order to cover cost. Only sent MO because of the low price for the random parts. Received confirmation of receipt of payment and have spent 2 months trying to get the parts. No longer acknowledges emails, PMs or phone calls. Payed another seller for the parts after waiting 7 weeks with no response to any attempted contact. All I want is my money back. - Kevin Carl
    • I can't believe I just got here to put this guy's name on the list and he's already here. Fuckin' A. Same deal, I spent a while conversing back and forth with him and he assured me over the phone that he was a "stand up guy" and wasn't going to screw me over. That should have been the first warning sign. He also "didn't have a camera" so he couldn't take a picture of the engine he was selling me (even though he has two pictures in his profile), warning sign number two. Finally he doesn't do paypal because he was "screwed over" in the past and therefore only takes money orders. In any case, he sent me the engine, but it was completely seized, rusted, and useless. He said it was in good condition and came off a running bike... honestly, if he was planning on fucking me over like this, why even spend the money to ship the engine? This guy is really a piece of work. All I want is my money back. - Joseph Gummer

    • Bought a v1 motor from him. I asked him if it had a needle bearing or brass bushing. He told me needle bearing. I received the motor and it had a brass bushing and it had been damaged in shipping due to quite possibly, the worst packaging job on the face of the planet. It had been wrapped in one single layer of the most thin bubble wrap you can find. Cylinder studs had not been removed so they were bent. Fan stuff was floating around in the box so the fan items were cracked/broken. I asked for a $50 refund to replace all of the broken parts, he offered me $20 (if you can find a used, in good shape v1 fan for $20 let me know!) which I accepted because I was tired of dealing with him. Good communication skills but absolutely lacking in the shipping/packaging department. - Ryan N.

    • SHIPPING OVERCHARGING AND PRICE BENDING: Sold me Motobecane Malossy Variotop (original thread for reference http://www.mopedarmy.com/riders/demsin79/). He was selling it with extra weights for $160-165 shipped in US. Quoted me $32 for shipping to Canada and after negotiations we agreed on the total price of $190 (he wanted $200 at first!). He promised to refund the difference if the shipping was cheaper. He shipped it for $11.60 without tracking # and refused to refund the difference telling me that: “You live in Canada and that changed things.” So, it changed the price for the part and price for shipping? Simple calculation: starting price ($165) minus max for shipping in US (about $7) equals to $158 profit. For $190 shipped got profit of $178.4 – just ripped another 20 bucks off me for used variator (even with extra weights)! As for the part – it’s in good used condition, but not excellent as stated in description: it has a few scratches on cheeks and tool-marks from mounting-dismounting, shaft has a blue spot from overheating and the ID of bushing is well worn. Liar. People beware! - Matt S
    • In Response To The Above Crap: I get an email from this guy saying he wants to buy the variotop + weights for $165 shipped. He explained he was in Canada. I said shipping would be an approx. amount because I looked it up on my phone quick. If anyone has ever shipped to Canada you know there are papers and shipping anything over 4lbs is expensive as hell. The amount I gave was a medium international flatrate box for $32.95 and shipping priority was ~$36. I shipped it as a parcel because it was cheaper @$12. The paypal fee was $8, so the shipping and fee was ~$20.

      I have way to many good selling experiences to let one guy crying over $10 bring me down. Whatevs..I wont ship to Canada ever again because of this idiot.

      I also marked the item as a gift instructed by him. I'm sure there is a gain by doing that and he wouldn't tell me what it is. If so then he really has nothing to complain about.

      I just went onto the Canadian Customs site and it states there is a tax of $8.50. Just by me marking it as a gift he saved that money. He wouldn't tell you that though because that would mean I didn't rip him off at all. Go cry about $2.50 man, get a hobby. - Weak-Ends TJ
    • Week-Ends TJ is a GOOD SELLER I bought an E50 from him for a fair price & he shipped it the same day. Doesn't get much better than that. - Mariano Ulibarri
