Wanting to buy a cycle off a private seller using paypal but just noticed vehicles arent covered. Does a cycle count as a vehicle to paypal or is it covered under buyer protection? It is an expensive bike so i do not want to make a mistake thanks.
Also the seller has stated that they have had their account locked for 14 days because of too much money being processed so i have to wait, is this anything to be concerned about ?

Yes, what is the case with an Electric bike?
I think this falls to the case where A) it is fully customized item and B) It has an electric motor and over parts.
