Need to bitch about the previous bike owner!

well it all started off nice when i bought the bike, the guy was extremly nice..went out of his way to personally deliever the bike to me on the back of his truck (10 hour drive) and even took a few hundred bucks off...now heres the problem....

in the ebay auction he clearly states that he has an extra quart of paint and clear coat for the bike, because the bike is a custom house of kolor color, so when he arrived i asked him where the paint was and he told me he forgot it but he has my address so he said he would mail it to me through UPS...and since he seemed like a decent nice guy i agreed....

a week later i called him and he said he would put the paint in the mail the next day....2 weeks later....nothing

so i called and this is how the conversation went:

Me:hey "bob" its eric, i bought the bike from you,m just seein what the deal is with the paint and clea....

Him: *CLICK*

ok so i figured he lost reception so i called back, voicemail, again and again...so then i called and it rang twice and went to voice mail, you know how you can hit ignore well now im pissed cause i dont have the paint or the clear... WTF

well now im startin to worry if he lied about the bikes condition and such since it was a salvage title but the good thing is i paid him a 500 dollar deposit to show him i was for real about buying the bike the day before he rode down so i put a claim in with paypal and explained the situation to them so well see....

You explained to paypal that the deal wasn't 100% because you didn't get your paint??

Well that sucks man, It could be a lot worse tho. Have you seen the title? If so then you would know if it had a salvage title.

Also you can get that paint scanned and I'm sure they can match the paint.

That guy probably delivered the bike such a distance for a reason tho...he really wanted to get rid of it.

well he told me he needed the money cause he is was going to buy a harley that weekend so i saw where he was comin from....but all in all i dont notice anything wrong with it....knock wood.....

but there isnt anything wrong right now that i will need the paint asap so i guess its ok if i just get the paypal money back.....

Obviously, the guy doesn't have the paint. I wouldn't worry about it, but I would ask the brand mechanic at a local dealer to look at it and give him a $20 or so.

Did you get a good price on the bike even without the paint? If so then you ain't no fool!

There sin't any damage on the bike where you would need the paint is there?

If not when you get to it... get some paint matched... heck buy the house of kolors!

I wouldn't be all that upset with the fact that I didn't get the paint but I think the point here is the way he acted. That would piss me off to.

I refuse to tip toe carefully through life, simply to arrive safely at death.

Fug it man. It's paint. You got the title? You got a couple c-notes dropped from the price? He delivered it 10 hours? You made out pretty well.

yes i still got a great deal but its the point...anyway i dont have naything to lose really, i applied for the 500 back from paypal so worse case scenario paypal will find him in the right (somehow) and me wrong and i wont get the 500 back but best case is i paypal will find him at fault and me right and i will get another 500 knocked off the price

but to answer your question there are a few scuffs but you cant tell if your standing more than 5 inches from the bike so i guess i made out good

man im in a good mood now

a rod blew, thankfully not out of the engine casing nor did it seize since my hubby was going rather fast at the time, which it is supposed to be able to handle!!! it just started making its death rattle and we had to trailer it back home...and everyone said it should not have done that unless the previos owner was an idiot and seriously mistreated it...

we took it to the mechanic and he was friggin ridiculous, the whole thing was stupid, so we ended up just buying a new engine from a salvage place, a buddy who has a buddy kinda thing, so we got a really good deal on it, it is an '05 with only 27 miles (had tyo break in another friggin bike) but better all around and we got it ready to just drop in, so it turned out okay, the whole thing just really sucked!!!
