Of course I don't know the feeling you've gotten from them during your conversations.
He did seem interested, but I have the impression that he is stressed and struggling to keep up. I don't want to hassle him too much, but I feel a bit miffed, because it's not fair on you guys. Once I've made up my mind to purchase something, I just want to get on with it, as most people would.

I commend your efforts and understand not wanting to piss him off as that won't get what we want. Just trying to get a feel for the vibes he's giving you. Thanks.

It will be interesting to see how high the bidding will go, as the auction still has several days to run.

I wish HH Racetech would get a move on. The only good thing is that the Euro seems to be in free fall. However, that's not really a good thing. They are supposed to buy our stuff.

Sorry...been watching this thread and feeling bad for you guys. Anyone thought about reaching across the pond and asking a German inmate for assistance? I bet you could post in the regionals forum and maybe even get someone to drop by?

I have just posted over in the German section. Perhaps someone there is prepared to help. Otherwise I will ring him one more time tonight, even if it's just to tell him that he's missed out. Perhaps he's is too attached to his product to let some of it go, or he doesn't trust the Euro anymore.

Stress you've got over ten confirmed buyers....(doesn't he want the money). Money just won't fall in his lap w/o any work on his part. Not like he's loosing money on the deal. You've done the leg work on getting buyers together for him dang what could be easier.

Finally, I have some news. He's mentioned that he had a lot of demand for these cartridge inserts. Apparently they are very popular for classic racers. They've run out of pistons, these are made especially for them. He's told me that new stock will arrive within two weeks. Then we can put our orders through and he will deliver within two weeks after receiving the order.

Since most of you are out of your regular riding season and the exchange rate is getting better, it should be no hardship to wait a little longer. I suspect that all we'll need to do is mention the advrider group buy to get the discount, for a limited time. He still hasn't set up the PayPal account, but has promised to do this.

I guess most German exporters are doing a lot of business right now.

Anyway that's it, if you're still interested wait. If not, it's his loss and I'll take you off the list.
