HELP!! Need someone to check a bike in CT ASAP!!

Hi everyone,

I found a bike that I would LOVE to own in Gales Ferry, CT. It's a fantastic deal, but I've seen similar (real) great deals like ths before. However, since it is a private seller, I need someone to go and check just to be sure. Hopefully someone who won't buy it first. I'm would offer him literally every penny I possess to get it and hope I'd hope I could make some more while on my way to go pick it up. I'm presently all the way across the country on the coast of Oregon. I could be there in 10 days if it worked out, but since this would totally wipe me out, financially, I don't want to even make the offer without confirmation of it not being a scam. So, anyone near Gales Ferry that would be willing to check it out for me?

Too many bikes to list them all:
1995 GL1500SE (Best - & prettiest - bike BY FAR!)
1985 Goldwing Aspencade
1981 Yamaha 850 Special
2008 Piaggio 150cc scooter
1985 Yamaha Venture tour

The white 96 SE on Craigslist for $3900?

It would be worth the $350 to fly from Portland to Hartford instead of taking 10 days.

If you can't find someone to look at it, you could ask him to take the bike to one of the local shops for a condition inspection (probably have to arrange payment with the shop ahead of time). Hayes custom cycles LLC is probably the closest shop based on google maps.

I GOT IT!!!!! My new home and transportation!! I still have to go get it, buy it, license it, insure it, but he said that he'll have a tank of gas in it so I can ride it away. THANK YOU ALEXA for loaning me the extra money to get it. And ESPECIALLY thank you, Mom (Sandy Koshover), for loaning me the bulk of the money (in a long-term loan). This is totally going to drain me of all funds, but I have balloons and faith that the Universe will continue to watch over me.
Gotta say, starting to get a little excited...can ya tell?
Francine, looks like you won't be storing my camper all winter. I'm going to be heading your way to pick it up right after I pick up the bike tomorrow.
