Someone to look at a Bike for me in Ferndale, MI near Detroit

I am going to buy a motorcycle from a guy in Ferndale, MI. If I could get someone who lives in the area take a look at it for me to prove that it is legit, would be very helpful before I send this guy the money.

Anyone in the Detroit area available to ride over to Ferndale to take a look at a BSA for me?

I live in California.

Better that nothing, I will let you know, thank you very much.

For some reason I need to feel safe with my money.

There is a big Detroit metro ADV following. Couldn't one of you guys or gals check this out? Make it a ride to eat. Vinsetta Garage with its excellent Mac n cheese is just down the street.

I'm pretty sure there is a Starbucks in Ferndale too.

I sent the guy a check, so I bought it. I am now waiting for everything to clear. Next step is getting it shipped.

Thanks for the offer of looking at it, but I took the chance. The picture looks too clean to be true., about 800 miles on it.

you are too darn impatient ... I'd sent a deposit with balance coming after a local inmate can verify the deal is real.
if this is a craigslist deal .. scammers abound on CL .. super clean pictures can be snagged off the internet ..

the only bike I purchased at a distance .. sight unseen was my R80G/S. but that deal was verified by bike's re-builder and I verified he was an airline pilot.

plus I sent the funds via credit card funded paypal .. so if anything went wrong .. funds could be yanked back.

sounds like you just dropped your drawers ... sure hope I'm wrong ..
get a local inmate to quickly verify bike is as represented. you've still got time to stop payment on check. if things are not as represented.

I got it.


The BSA arrived last week , just wanted to let you know. Thanks to all that offered help. The BSA arrived safe and sound. I used a outfit called Federal Motorcycle Transport, they were excellent.
