They can create a lot of shadows The shadows that can take your eyes completely off topic We can look very confusing picture of What I see a lot of times, and I’ve mentioned this before in another video When people are taking pictures of bikes They will have the bike on the other side so you can not see any of the equipment A very important part of the bike People do not like to see that You have a quiet few photos that you can take on eBay Completely free of charge So you might as well put them in there Image says a thousand words, and I really do not think it does not sell the actual self-bike As I said you do not want to take pictures from this side car side Things like the rear derailleur show turned out to be out in detail Brake, brake calipers As I told you do not get some cool pictures so it may appear as well as the buyer exactly what they got Ok all we have to do now is to get this bike back We are then going to get it boxed detailed and back up for sale on eBay So lets get to go ahead with this As well as you can see Boxed bike is everything And all ready to go The reason we square up cycling because I am about to announce this to deliver nation wide Opens the sale of the whole country It helps with fast sale I feel The box itself completely free of charge from the local shop for bicycles If you ask them well they are happy to do so I have also done a video on the bikes purely boxing up If it was not already done so before they can be quiet fiddlely What you do not want to do is that the bike delivered And it is damaged was the absolute cause you a headache you So there I am all ready to go The buyer pays for delivery even in any account you I feel it helps out a lot with the sale So let’s look at the ad itself The top line is very important Many of the key words in the presence of the first one is vintage Because vintage bike We also Rally Banana team a lot of people in the search for Rally Team We have bananas that are We also have at the top I got on the road bike And then the size, we have also developed the old school size in there if you’ve noticed The reason for this is for some of us older I associate immediately with vintage bike with the old sizing.

I ride 23 ” So yes all of the sizes I’ve put out there, which helps to get out immediately in the first line of the description And then put to buy it now, which is the price that I would like I generally bump this is a very slight increase And then it will be the earliest display So it gives the buyer a chance to make me an offer Cheeky As I said I bump it up a little so that I can get the price at which I am after Both parties are glad that they feel as if they have bargin Or knock-mail etc.

So yes we have to I’ve also done a brief description of connection for some new parts that we put on But I keep it to a point But I really feel as if the images actually sold this bike Which went gold within 24 hours you believe it But the images themselves say the word A, which really stood out when compared with its competitors, so yes the bike got sold within 24 hours We did not get the full price demand but we have more than doubled our money on this sale It took no time at all to the heart of the bike around And yes it was the success I feel So all that remains to do now is a courier is scheduled for today So we’re going to get this bike on the way I hope this has helped you in some ways a little bit to make money on eBay And give you some hints and tips Other than that, as I always say If you do not enjoy watching these videos and I always say then please subscribe Leave us like Share Video Do you really help Thanks a lot bye for now
