    This Anthem 29 looks stolen...

    Ebay item 120843548640...
    spray painted a camo pattern, even over the cable housing, shock, etc.
    Rear rack installed.
    It's either stolen or the seller is a total moron.
    I read that on the internet.

    I sent the seller a relatively benign question through ebay and he responded immediately. When I asked him why he put decals on it I got no response - yet... (Makes you wonder...)

    Down to $1700 now, which is about year end price for a new one.

    After the 3rd request I received this:

    The decals are no big deal..They come off very easy. And so does the paint.It was something different. if you see it in person it looks bad ass.

    - huskeysales

    In my 1st request asked him why he painted it. He responded by saying it wasn't painted, it had decals installed...

    It would be interesting to see what his response would be (from someone local to him) requesting to see the bike in person.

    Thats about as close to looking stolen as anything I have ever seen. Too bad I used to live 30minutes from him last year I could have requested to see it in person. Like someone said above who would do that to a bike like that- painful to see.

    Respond to him anyways ans see what he says. Tell him your 20 minutes away and can look at it this afternoon just to see what his response is - if you even get one back...

    I doubt it's stolen because he has the owners manual for the bike and the shock
    But I don't doubt the fact that he is a complete idiot

    There's obviously paint on the cable housing and shock... to claim it only has decals on it is a pretty clear sign that he's lying... and probably not just about that.
    I read that on the internet.
