    Is it possible to tell from the photo, which model Bosch motor it is, the donor bike could have been a step through or something, although it does make you wonder why the motor model is not described.

    And if the seller is for real, you would have thought the battery and display would also be listed.

    The guy has good feedback as a seller and has sold other e bike motors, He has been a member for a lot of years. Does,nt seem to fit the usual scenario, just saying.

    You've posted several times about the impossibility of buying a Bosch motor without one to exchange.

    While I agree Bosch seem to discourage straight cash sales, it can be done.

    This site appears to have motors for sale, and I'm sure I've seen them from one of the German retailers, although I cannot recall which one.

    As I said, motors are also available from a German retailer whose name I forget.

    If anyone could find that site, you could.

    But it's not correct to repeatedly post you cannot buy a Bosch motor without one to exchange, because you can buy a motor for straight cash.

    Fair enough, it might have been pro-cycling where I saw a motor for sale.

    i dont think bosch even give new motors to dealers for even replacement under warranty as all need to send the old one back first b4 they send out a new one.

    right pita tbh so only option is ebay and take the risk.

    like if i want a cx motor and want to pay for one i can only buy what i have on my bike ie the performance motor you cant chop and change them around even if you want to pay for one.
