Created firefox addon and Google Chrome Extension targeted at people who frequent motorcycle section of Craigslist. It now also works on following sites:
- Craigslist motorcycle
- eBay motors
- Kijiji (US)
- Advrider flea market
- bcsportbikes bike marketplace
Features of the utility:-
- Shows consumer reviews of motorcycle. This is very useful in finding pros/cons of the bike and also if the vehicle suits buyer.
- Shows similar ads on top found elsewhere on craigslist and Oodle. This gives idea of market price and general availability.
- Quick indication of if the motorcycle was dropped or was involved in accident.
- Quick indication if its a moving sale.
- Recently viewed Ads.
- Add your Notes to the ads using Recently Viewed list.
- Shows Factory Recalls. Gives idea of manufacturing defects etc. Also when buying make sure to ask original owner if the factory recalls were done.
- Shows TSB (Technical Service Bulletin). The service information/updates issued by the manufacturer.
- If a phone number (US/Canada) is mentioned in the ad then it creates a link on page which lets one easily search craigslist for other ads posted by the poster.
