    Yeah it’s very strange but he has left a current mobile number for those he ripped off.

    Bourbons, what I don’t understand is why report the bike stolen when he still has it, elaborate insurance fraud?

    CHOMP.

    I break the speed limit. I’ve never had points but then I do have indate prescription glasses and drive within my limits. They put warning signs up, paint the things yellow and the camera vans are EASY to spot (usually sighted just after a warning sign).

    NEXT.

    So he stole his mates bike from work.

    Was his mate in on it for insurance fraud or not?
    Or
    Are there more than one person called tony.

    Is it even the same bike?

    The plot thickens, what is needed here is a super sleuth .

    well if the name on the ebay account and the lack of any previous sale activity is anything to go by then maybe he is just looking after the sale for his friend who has never sold on ebay before and some how got the bike back 🙄

    the sleuth in me thinks this :

    watsontony (dodgy, even when he posted on here, i thought he seemed a bit dodge)

    watsontony, had someone else he knows or (maybe himself?), steal it from the workplace, given they obviosuly both worked there (so knew exactly where it was, how it was locked, value of it etc)

    put out all the feelers on the net to look like he was trying to help his mate find it

    leaves it a year, then trys to sell it

    looking at original post the guy didnt have it insured so not a scam, just sounds like watsontony did his so called friend over like he did a few on here

    You also forgot halo wheels – check.

    good spot though phil, justa shame at no point in the original post does watsontony give the bike owners name or mobile for the future if it is spotted, like this!

    so basically we have no way of gaining contact with him, other than through watsontony – pretty crafty eh?! 🙁

    Yes you should definitely take Tony’s word for it when he said it’s not insured. He’s been totally trustworthy so far.

    Is that a pic of him above? Looks like a stereotypical effeminate wobbly teen (too much Estrogen) that you see a lot of now.

    It’s a funny one this one. Do people think that it was ever actually stolen?

    But it would of been reported stolen to Lancashire Police I would assume. If it is then a crime reference number would be available.

    Oh, thanks ever so much for keeping us safe by driving within your limits, you’re my hero 🙄

    It clearly states he has receipts and boxes to prove purchase of components.

    Am I missing something or are we all to assume that there is only one person in that part of the world called “Tony”?

    its a bloody big coincidence edlong if they are different people.

    This is definitely our huggable, granny bothering friend watsontony, the PayPal address he used to rip me off is the same as the ebay id on the cove auction. He claims he’s advertised elsewhere, anybody know where?

    Whilst i can fully understand that Tony pissed a lot of people off on here, it looks possible or even likely that his mate got this back and our long lost friend is selling this for him on the bay.

    This was posted on the original thread after watsontony legged it with peoples money

    Hi Guys

    I have heard through a local bike shop that the Police Station in Uppermill, Saddleworth have a Yellow Cove Shocker which they discovered at someones house shall we say…

    Maybe worth calling them as it could be the same bike.

    Good Luck

    That is followed by numerous sightings of the bike back in water foot. So his mate may well have had it returned to him.

    Considering you have just registered to post that, do you have some knowledge of the bike then?

    looks like you guys were wrong about Tony before!!! You should all be ashamed of yourselfs….. nothing but internet bullies with nothing better to do than make lies up about people and bad mouth them, when actually they have done nothing wrong. You say ”scum” Well take a closer look at yourself!!!
