    On Ebay / Clone ???

    It looks like a clone based on the dia. of the snorkel / roll bar hoop ,what do you think? All the panels seem to look right though. I like to see more pics of the frame and a chassis #. If I remember correctly there was some on here with a wrecked frame that needed a new frame.?

    I saw that yesterday. I took a long look at it and decided it was more than likely an Atom 2 frame. I had superimposed the model frame over it in perspective view, but, what ever the camera factors are, screw me up from aligning it easily.

    Is it weird that after reading the description I want to beat the guy to death with a English textbook? And who in their right mind would bid on this when it says the other parts are in a different state?

    "Is it weird that after reading the description I want to beat the guy to death with a English textbook?" Hehehe...I'll hold him down for you. My first thought was.. Calscots old car..?...Honda..turbo etc and the guy mentions call "Pete". Hmm..still smells like a scam...

    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)

    For the record, it had nothing to do with me. Norm passed me the link and I tried several attempts at calling, texting and emailing for info. I got nothing! The retarded listing description, the idiots voicemail message and the overal funky look of what pictures there was was enough to keep me away from it. Shame as if it is real, Id have been a serious buyer. There was several things wrong with the pictures. Funky shape roll bar, no visible tabs for the lower front A-arm mounts, no steering column frame mounts and fenders were wierd looking. The engine was funky too? No idea what it was with the intake on the back side.

    I guess we will find out in due course as they will need to come into the Atom "mainstream" to get help building it.

    ^ I had a very hard time thinking you were involved.. I'll still bet it's a scam. Ebay has been SO obtuse about site abuse; as long as they get their money,it's all good. Pretty pathetic.
