Help with my dilemna!

This is the scoop. The guy I am buying my next bike from came to me with this story. Tell me if you think it's legit and what you think of my solution. I have paid in full for the bike, I hold the title. He claims he took the bike for one last ride, someone stole the helmet off the bike. The helmet was part of the deal. I said that he should knock some money off the bike and return it to me. I have a feeling that he's going to say that the bike was cheap enough and he won't give me any money back. What would you do?

People take these things too seriously!

If its a good deal let him keep his helmet. you dont want his sweated up stanky ass helmet anyway. Just go get the bike before he wrecks it.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Your 1st mistake was paying for the bike in full and not taking it home with you. Since he can take the bike for a joy ride and crash it, it now belongs to you and it's your responsibility to deal with it.

My advice, talk to him, ask him to reimburse you the difference or at least meet you half way $$$ wise. If he say's no, well then it's your loss. Your mistake for leaving the bike and your new lesson learned. DON'T DO IT AGAIN. If you pay for it in full, it's yours! Take it home.

Do you mean to tell me he took the bike for one last ride while you already had ownership of the bike and the title? If that's the case, consider yourself lucky the bike didn't get stolen too. If he doesn't immediately knock off some money or get you a replacement helmet, this guy is a rat. Get the bike quick or get out of the deal quick. There is no honor here if he balks on the deal. IMHO, that is.

Yeah just take the bike. The helmet could be damaged (not visible) and if he "finds" the helmet you may not want to wear it anyway!! Trust me; if ya got a good deal than forget the helmet and get the bike as soon as you can.


Last note. What the hell is he doing riding YOUR bike?

OK, i'll scrap the helmet deal. Just to clear things up though. All points of the deal are documented on paper. I guess I should just get the bike and be done with it. Thanks for the suggestions guys and gals.

Shit ya, you are on the road to getting screwed big time. Especially since he probably pulled his insurance off, and you probably dont have any for it since you dont have the bike yet.


Wheres this bike at, grab some guys from here and lets go get it.
