About First Flight Bikes
We are an eBay ‘Top Rated Plus’ and ‘Power Seller’ with over 1,500 ‘Excellent’ ratings. First Flight Bikes doesn’t believe in production auctions – listing an item for $.99 with quick snapshots and useless descriptions. This takes money out of your pocket. To ensure the maximum sale price, First Flight Bikes begins the auction at a higher starting selling price based on our industry and eBay knowledge. We research each item, determine an appropriate listing price, write a detailed description and take awesome photos. Typically, an auction will run for 7 days; however, experience has shown us that certain items, such as more esoteric bike parts, are better listed as ‘Buy It Now’ for a 30-day period. If an item fails to obtain any bids during the auction period, you are given the option to either have First Flight Bikes re-list the item for a lesser price or to end the auction.
