Used but inspected [OK] Cyclone 3000 [SOLD]

Post by kg0wx » Aug 22 2019 6:16pm

She's got a few dings on the fins. The bolts on the right side have been replaced with studs. The planetary was replaced after a snap ring failure 2/2018. 2 replacement sets were ordered so I have a second planetary still in the box unused. I also have the LunaCycle Trike adapter that I bought last month. I bought a recumbent but it's a TerraTrike Zoomer and there's a cable guide in the way so I'm going with a hubmotor that I have. I'm offering up my Cyclone for someone out there like me that is on a budget and needs functional and low cost at the expense of "shiny and new". I took it apart and inspected it last month, all is clean and OK on the left and the planetary is fine. I have the original plates and hardware for the Cyclone mount plus the Square taper sealed 83mm bottom bracket from the Luna Cycle kit. Demonstration of the unit running:

Postal money order only and you only have one post here though? If you wont accept paypal or the likes, everything in this ad will work to your favor and not the buyers. Consider updating.

This is the 21st century. People use paypal because it protects more than one party.

I figured if I'm willing to box up everything , load up my Burley cargo trailer to my Terra Trike Zoomer and haul it down to the post office, someone can tear themselves away from a keyboard long enough to do the same and send me a letter. I don't like PayPal. A postal Money order is more secure. If you have any suggestions on those other options, I'm all ears. Are you actually interested in this item?

The problem is how does someone get their money back if they pay you with money order and there is an issue? Paypal, not an issue. And similar to your complaint, if someone pays 200 big ones for a dinged up cyclone and then it arrives doa they should expect not to be screwed and left with your problem.

You have a point. I'm a new user and you guys are not used to using the Postal Money order system. I thought about that so I contacted my USAF Son in N.C. just now and asked him to help with his paypal. He agreed.

Sorry if I raised any red flags, Newbie shame........

Dam, that is a solid point. Modern times I guess.

I didn't think people were like that but I am old and I live in a small town by the beach. I've been riding for over a half century in Europe and the U.S.A. and it used to be different.

In any case, I got my USAF son to pitch in to help with his paypal so I can accept that now.
