Thought I would get this out in the open in case it hasnt already been released. Theres a dude in Canada selling a a bunch of Bullseye stuff on ebay. Claims to have been an old dealer and purchased large quantities of Bullseye product bitd. I placed an order with him not too long ago myself. After I discovered he never sent the product out, I started a paypal claim and got my money back. But then I just recently received information from Steve over at Bullseye, claiming a friend of his had ordered a hub set. When he got them they just didnt seem right. So he sent them to Steve. After inspecting them they turned out to be knockoffs. Additionally there is another guy (or maybe the same-who knows)on this website that is doing the same. http://www.twhitesbikes.co.nz/blog/2008_11_01_archive.html. Please beware . If you want me to name names , pm me

I have seen the stuff on evilbay and nearly bought some axles. Are you talking about the hubs he shows at the near the bottom of his page? Those are definitely not Bullseye hubs, but he doesn't claim the to be either, at least, not on his web page.

I've been talking to Steve about these hubs. I bought mine from a guy in B.C. with an ebay name of 98210 sucks. I'm not totally certain that mine are knockoffs yet, so I'm not going to voice any opinions or anything at this time. I'll wait until Steve confirms my suspicions. In the meantime I have a set of "rare, small bolt" bullseyes that I'm willing to let go of for a song!!!!

That's 302zapper. Not exactly a shining reputation.

Yes the guy you mentioned is the one selling those. Apparently he was once 302zapper. And is a machinist. Have been told he has attempted to sell other bmx knockoffs in the past. Anyone out there that can confirm this ?

Keep us updated on this one. this ebay user (98210 sucks) has bought alot of high dollar stuff from me on ebay. He always paid good and seemed legitimate / never had any trouble with him. I'd be curious to know if he is making these, or if he just had a set and sold them not realizing they were fake. If he is really making these I'm gonna block his bids on my stuff in the future. Cool looking hubs though.

I bought some Kuwie decals from him a couple years ago. They were repops, but that was stated in the auction. How can you tell these hubs are fake?
