Any idea who really owns this bike?

*edit: he sent a boilerplate Scam email below.
If anyone wants to "reply"...: vander_wyper066@hotmail.com

As you probably noticed, the price is rather low for this bike.I can ship the bike to you and you will pay C.O.D (CASH ON DELIVERY). The reason why I selling the bike at this price is because I'm from Sweden .I was in USA and bought the bike from USA and I took the bike with me in Sweden. I work on a cruise ship, I'm naval officer, work 6 months on board and 3 months stay home, at this moment I'm home.
The bike is here in my garage in Sweden,you can drive/ride a unregistered vehicle only 3 months in Sweden then you have to register the vehicle to get swedish documents. In Sweden you can't register a US vehicle, I have the all documents but the bike has US documents and I can't register the bike in Sweden because the law doesn't let me. Now, I can't come to USA to sell the bike because I'll spend much money and lose more time, my only chance to sell this bike is to find a buyer in the U.S. or in another country. I can send the bike to your home, shipping will take approximately 10 working days, after you receive the bike you have another two days to inspect it. When the inspection period end, the shipping company will contact you and if there are any issues with the bike you can refuse it. If all is good, and I'm sure it will be, they will help you with the transfer of ownership. If you are interested to buy write me back with your shipping information and your phone number(cell or home). I will call you as soon I get your info.
You won't find another bike in such condition.

Thanks

Ronald V.

This one had been posted here before, in the Flea Market. IIRC, the guy wanted something like $40K for it

If you own an older beemer and wanted OE bags, worth every penny and then some..
Don't bitch on someone else's price. Just don't buy it. Or call the OP and let the dickering begin.

That's just my opinion and I might be wrong.....

I don't really dig the way this particular bike is colored\optioned, nor do I think the price is right, but I have never seen one for sale:

http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/mcy/3685387684.html

It really looks way better in a dark color, without luggage, with a seat cowl:

Those Moto-Guzzi's are cool. I was out at that MotoClassics place in Beaverton the other day and they said there was Guzzi dealer opening in Portland. Something about a spin-off, but I was more interested in drooling over Triumphs, and really wasn't paying attention. Something about those Guzzi's interest me. Wish it had lower miles, but the price is good and I hear these are "runners".

If you really like that model, and don't want to drive to Seattle, maybe.

But, I've seen Grisos and Brevas in Seattle this winter that are newer, with far less miles, for around that price. I even bought one.

Water Cooler in Salem for 10 bucks

http://corvallis.craigslist.org/app/3672253750.html

Other than the hot not working and the cold water coming out of it having a 'slight funny taste', seems like a great deal.
