Hello all! Been in the market for a cruiser for some 3 months now. Picked one out for which i thought sounded like a good deal. Some points about the deal that made me feel uneasy, workmates have said not to get it just in case its a dodge.. situation: Went to this guys place to check out a v-star MY2005, 13000k, 3 owners including himself no service log history decent price from what i can see in the trading post and what not but the fact that the bikes had so many owners and no service history makes it a bit suspicious, no? we settled on a price, all is good until we got to the payment method. i told him i'd be giving him a bank cheque once he delivered the bike to my place in sydney (hes in penrith). he flat out said no, and that he wanted a cash transaction. so i've pretty much set things in pause for now, just thinking of the checks i should be making to at least to prevent me picking up a shady deal.... i've REVS checked it inspected it in person, no real damage visible, only the drop on the RHS (scratches on mirrors) mates tell me i should be getting someone from NRMA or something to do an independent assessment of the bike. Are there any other ways to cover yourself as a buyer? cheers!
