I ordered a new gas cap and latch assembly for a 72 cb450.. got charged $118.00 and 3 weeks later have not seen or heard anything despite repeated attempts to contact the seller, (email and voice mails) today their phone says its "temporarily disconnected" has anyone else had dealings with this company positive or negative?

That link is not working for me and I'm sorry to hear about your problems. For my K3 450 I was able to the cap and latch directly from Honda and I don't recall it being quite that much.

Did you buy them on Ebay, through Paypal?? If so, then you may have some good luck with a refund. If you bought online (not Ebay) and used Paypal then don't expect a refund from them EVER. Paypal will not protect you on any transaction unless it's on Ebay and even then they drop the ball..

well its been a month and now the sellers phone is disconnected, still no order status change and no word from them, guess I'll add them to my short list of F*&^ers to never deal with again, like exotic sport bike.. (they did eventually send my seat, but it took all frickin summer.)

so buyer beware I guess..

Paypal is almost as bad as Walmart. Please let us know if Paypal does anything to get your money back, which I doubt they will..

well, advanced cycle never responded to the claim, so paypal found in my favor.. refund in 5 days if the seller's account can cover the 118.00.. not holding my breath, but hopefully paypal will at least black ball them.. got a street view of the business address and its a house.. should have checked that first I guess..

Unless you can clearly see a number on that house, don't trust Google maps. The addresses are way off.

You'll likely get your money back if they continue to not respond, but if they contest it, you probably won't get squat.. I've been through it all, several times.
