Description states that centre stand was added to the bike.

I'd lean toward the latter. It's no guarantee anyway - there could have
been some hideous fault with the car, fixed to a minimum standard, and
if the invoice isn't included in the bundle of docs then how would you
My thou came with a full service history. An invoice for the first
service, five years previous. Wow.

I think he can't be arsed answering your questions:

Given all of the above you need to go and view - end of. Agree the 1st
pic is not likely to be a pic of the current state of the bike (even
if it is the same bike). If it's with in an hour or two's drive, take
the (current bid) £1000 with you and see if he'll take it there and
then. If it's a shed and you explain you'll not be having it, unlikely
he'll neg you (if that matter to you).

Sellers can no longer leave negative feedback on ebay.
