Shaun Dickens - Bike Sellers Beware
« on: January 13, 2020, 10:19:27 pm »
I am not in the habit of naming and shaming but in this case I have no choice! It is in the interest of the general public.

Early July 2019 I gave my BMW R1200GSA to a second hand motorcycle dealer in Durbanville as he assured me he had a few possible buyers for my bike. Living in Willowmore itís difficult to get guys to come and have a look at the bike, so why not.

Nothing came of the possible's and he and I advertised and he gave me regular feedback on how difficult it was to sell my bike, high mileage, wrong colour and being a base model.

Left for Belgium 28 July and got back 27 August and still no sale but when we met up he tells me he is considering buying the bike for himself as it is such a nice bike! This however never materialised and many phone calls later I am assured my bike is difficult to sell.

Sunday 10 November I have a discussion with him as to what is happening with the bike and he had an offer of R10000 less than what I ask! I say no and decide I will advertise myself again. I do so and the next day I have two prospects but at 22h00 I get a call from a person telling me I canít sell that bike as it has been registered in her name since October 13!

Next morning I call the sales guy and say I have a buyer and he has not to worry anymore, needless to say it gets quite, when he speaks he says he has sold the bike as well, the guys is picking it up in the morning and paying cash the price I ask. Then I spill the beans and obviously he denies, but I sent him the registration papers I by then had received from the lady.

Thatís not the end of it, the lady did not buy it from my guy but someone else. Eventually we traced the paper trail and my sales guy had given the bike to another sales person he owed money to under the pretext he bought the bike from us and paid in full. That sales document we have as well, dated 27 August, note thatís the day I came back from Belgium.

Somewhere in August he put some money in my account to pacify me but 13 November after he was caught out he paid R50000 instantly. Now in December I got the remainder of what he owed me!

Now, he got the bike early in July, gave it away end August to pay debt and held on to my money till he was caught out mid November and only paid the rest in December. This after bull and bull and bull.

Now who is this guy? Shaun Dickens (Ex Hamman motorrad, ex GS Traders) working from RCR motorcycles Durban road, Bellville. I was warned against him but against my better judgement, I ignored! Just donít ignore my warning! Stay far away from him, wherever he works or whatever transaction he may propose!

You been warned!
I am doing it today, maybe there is no tomorrow

This is not the first time I've heard of very dodgy dealings/service from RCR.

Last I heard it's a new owner, I assume Shaun, but I also heard the previous owner also did dodgy dealings and apparently spent time in prison for fraud.

Seems to me that place is a magnet for bad business, yet there's always nice bikes on the floor.

Mr. Dickens just posted this on FB (Proudly Meerkat):

"Good day guys there was a post placed from Jumper's place Willowmore about me selling his bike and keeping the money. There is always 2 sides of a story . Yes I did send the bike to another sales guy because he had a client interested in the bike and because its a 2010 base bike with 115000km on I thought it would be great to get it sold and I did not owe the other sales guy money that is false. What he does not state in his story is , I gave them R15000 long before the bike was sold and was still on the floor because I new they where financially in trouble and also when he came into the shop after I have paid him all his money I still gave him a set of off road goggles for free. I did not take a sent commission on the bike it was sold for R75000 and that is what they wanted for the bike and this is also not the 1st bike I have sold for them and him being warned about me also is bull further more when Ronnie had a training event I gave him one of my bikes to use with out asking him a sent . I am not gonna go into a long discussion about this on face book , Ronnie had a bike with high km and I did my best to sell it for him and gave him all his money and that is the end off it"

Its the 1st time I hear of someone posting their bike for sale on Gumtree and someone else who bought the bike sees the advert and contacts the seller to say that have already bought the bike.  :ricky:

Must have been a bit of a shock  :o

Hy praat anyway kak. Watter salesman sal jou geld betaal nog voordat hy die bike "verkoop" het.
