Full Answer

Users are able to purchase motorcycle salvage parts found on eBay.com directly from the seller through the site itself. Parts are listed either in an auction format or a fixed-price method, with the fixed-price listings offering an immediate purchase, while the auction listings require the users bid on the item over a set period of time.

Listings on Craigslist.org are also available for immediate purchase, though the user needs to make the arrangements with the individual buyer. Craigslist doesn't offer any payment processing services, and it warns users against using online payment methods without first receiving the part in person.

Alternately, UNeedAPart.com and MrCycleParts.com require users submit a part request form rather than search through online listings. This is due to the fact that these sites work with a network of automotive salvage and recycling yards to source the desired parts. Once the company finds the user's part, it handles buying the part from the yard and shipping it to the buyer. The user only makes a payment to the site for the parts and not to the yard.
