If I get it I owe you a finders fee! Or a large cold
I actually spoke to him yesterday and told him I have cash and would get him a deposit of $500.00 ASAP to hold it for about 10 days. Maybe sooner dependant on when we can meet up. I did "ask" him if he would meet me part way. He said sure, but needed to try and find a vehicle to either put the bike in or a car to tow his trailer. And I also offered a couple hundred bucks (maybe a little more) for his time and gas. I would not want him to drive more than 4 hours. It's about a 10hr drive for me to Manchester NH from Northern VA. . . . If that was a possibility? If not, I could just drive up the entire way, not this Friday but next (May 6th) and pick it up. That was mid day yesterday. I have called him back (7pm) and wanted to know the status of the deal and had to leave a msg for him to call me back. NOTHING!?!?!?
I would think that if he really wanted to sell the bike then he would at last call me back
If he has someone that’s going to pay more or someone he does not have to drive for they should let you know right?
Or am I just being a totally impatient!
There are a couple other Ducati's I am looking at .... A 97 916 with tones of goodies on it (20k miles, but well cared for)$ 7200.00 Well documented!
Also a 99 996 with 1500 miles on it.. A few goodies on it! (was on ebay for $8500) Never sold
I am going to drive up friday to look at those (much closer. With-in a few hrs) . If this guy does not call back today or tomorrow.
Update.. I spoke to the owner who did state he had another buyer that wanted to pay him the full asking price. Which I said fine and thanked him for calling me back. He said if it falls through then its mine, but I am leaning more towards this... 20k miles with full service history for $7k.... Going to look at it Friday if I can get the day off. What do ya all think? Good bad or otherwise.
