I've now seen an ad with the same Harley pic pop up a couple of other places. It appears to be a email collecting scam.

Springer Harley with Motorvation

I emailed that guy just before I linked it here. It's a legitimate ad. The guy said he owns 2 outfits and the one has mostly been sitting so he wanted to clear his garage out....

That ad is getting old by now. I suspect it's out of date. Email the guy - he answered my email.....

I've heard springer front ends are hard steering with a car attached ..... I don't need another problematic project or I'd snatch it up myself at that price.

Freeflow is going to ride it back for me. Marc the guy that owns it should have the check by now and I will be relocating it next week Saturday to one of Freeflows friends in Daytona when I go down to Disney with the family. Tbone from this site was nice enough to go check it out for me in advance and take some more pictures for me. Here are the pictures Tbone took. It runs good but the chrome and other things are kind of rough.

I stand corrected. I had emailed him along with a couple of guys over at The Horse BC, and none of us got a response. Then a couple other ads surfaced with the same info, so we figured something was fishy. Good luck bringing it home, you got a deal!

I see lots of scammers on CL using legitimate ads they have stolen from an original poster. Usual reply is bike is in a warehouse in (your major city), send check to XXX company and we will deliver bike to you. Usual miss spelled words and grammatical errors. Refund if you are not satisfied..... Yeah Right!
I keep a BS email account for contacting the "too good to be true" ads on the off chance one might be real.

Thumb Glad it worked out on the Springer

I new that particular ad was good. However, RidingDonkeys is correct to be "aware." Scammers are everywhere.

WillNeverGrowUp ... The pictures came out good. Yep, it's got some rough spots but still looks like a great deal. There was one I saw for sale in Georgia not long ago for near three times that price, it was older and had many more miles. Yours looks like a great deal, that needs some elbow grease. Maybe the Georgia outfit had gold weights in the sidecar...

It'll buff right out I hope you get out and enjoy that thing

Good luck, Dave

Ohh, those are the ones that I am supposed to be buying in the morning, if she didn't already sell them. She said she'd hold them for me until the bank opened on Monday (wanted cash instead of a check), but ya never know!

I'm probably only going to buy the complete sidecar. The other one has no frame or wheel, just a hacked up tub and a fender. Not worth 500 bux, imo. :3

I guess if she has already sold it to someone, though, that's an excuse to make my own... :3

Nope, means I didn't read the rules in a while and got my add nuked for referencing CL and then for having the price in the title (seems weird to not allow that but oh well).

Anyway still for sale and I think I fixed the add (so it won't get moderated) and updated the link in my original post to this thread -too early for a bump.

Thanx for tipping me to the breakdown.

I can email pictures at your request. $450.00 and buyer pays shipping costs. Thank-you.
