Saw this one in the Tampa Craigslist. If I had more room or it was 2 years newer would get it. (I already have 5 bikes in an area big enough for 2 bikes)

http://tampa.craigslist.org/hil/mcy/896087057.html

I did email him yesterday and got this response.

The bike is a 1986 Honda Goldwing 1200 it has about 70,000 miles with clear title and new tires it ran before it was parked but has been sitting almost 3 yrs . First $700.00 takes it any other questins send me an email thank you Peter

If it was about 3000 miles closer I'd buy it. :)

It's worth it for parts. It'll sell quickly unless there's a catch. Too far for me to go :(

I sent him an email about it asking about some close ups of it and the history of the bike. We'll see what happens.

Hey. Perterbylt, have you talked to the seller already? Your post makes me think you have.

Bagmaster,

I emailed him yesterday and I posted his response from yesterday evening.

"The bike is a 1986 Honda Goldwing 1200 it has about 70,000 miles with clear title and new tires it ran before it was parked but has been sitting almost 3 yrs . First $700.00 takes it any other questins send me an email thank you"

A friend here local offered him $500 and he never even responded to that.

As a rule, I don't reply unless there is a phone number. Please be careful when replying to some of the Craigslist ads due to scams. That being said, I bought my wing off of Craigslist here in OKC and it was one of the best deals I've made. The guy had his number posted and I was able to talk to him at great length about the bike before I ever went to look at it. Again be careful I don't want to see anyone get taken advantage of.

I live 15 min from where the bike is. I sent him an email to go over and check it out. I will report back if anyone is interested?

The Peter was me signing mypost and the New line got lost in the translation.

The response I got to the email seemed good to me.

I just decided I could not fit another bike in the Garage so I posted the listing herealong with his email response to my inquiry.

Sorry if I caused any confusion.

If you own enough bikes people lose track and then you can pretty much do as you please. :baffled:

I wonder why these deals come up when I know I would never see another $700.00 I could blow again, LOL!!
