I am not sure where you see personal vendettas here, but if - not for the first time - a seller comes up with weird stories, which others can clearly disprove, that has nothing to do with personal stuff but with general honesty, on which forums like this are IMHO generally based on.
The price is a different issue, i personally never sell for profit, hence i do not buy from people who quadruple their own buying price, but that is something any individual can decide on his/her own.
Good for you. I respect that.
i have never manufactured a story surrounding a bike. people like eric rumpfy and martin kozaczeck have electronically thrown me under the bus for buying and selling bikes that they collect in a manner that does not suit their liking. they have established my "reputation" on the forum by disallowing me to do so on my own. again I have never lied about the history or condition of I bike I am selling, as evidenced by my sales record on ebay and other places.
Shame on you all for subscribing to these tactics. It is truly a disservice to allow someones OPINION to shape your impression of another when said opinion is based on nothing more than hearsay.
if you are interested in this bike, contact me via PM. if not that is fine. i will not indulge these keyboard bullies with any more posts.
I have reduced the asking price to $2690 + shipping.
That seems fair. Great looking bike.
I get why MK was frustrated. He tried to tell you you had the facts wrong and you would not budge until a large amount of people chimed in as well. But. It's all good now. A beauty of a bike.
I think it's bad form to use full names even though you can find it on the Internet. Also, I think your Kathy eBay record does look good but what are your other eBay handles so I can check them out?
Great pick up. You don't want to try it? Looks like a fun ride.
