First saw a similar scam in Daly City CA. Dealer was great with suppliers and customers for about a year, stocked the store with parts etc. on credit and good will and then in one night disappeared with all the stuff.

I found their prices were usually about 20 to 25% higher than other online oem parts dealers. After I realized i had paid about $100 more for an order from them than if bought elsewhere, I never bought from them again and never recommended them either except as a place to overpay. That was about 17 years ago.

Sounds like they shot themselves in the foot...

I was never impressed with their prices and selection.

Little late in reporting this Bike Bandit bankruptcy was mentioned on the GW (and others) sites in June.
