Urgent help needed please!!

Hello,

I got an offer for an S10 2012 with 13k miles for 8700 usd. (Is it a good deal??)

I don't know how we buy a motorcycle thousands of mile far away! How is the process?

So far I agreed to pay 500 usd deposit and the resr upon pick up by the shipping company. What are the papers that needs to be delivered with the bike? How is the transfer of title done?

Any urgent advice is welcomed!

My wife said let us buy it and after our trip we decided which one to keep i.e versys or S10!

Thanks!!!

I don't think the price is abnormally low i mean similar biles are around 9500....I liked saving 800 usd which will be spent over shipping..
Paper wise what should I ask the shipping company to verify before I make payment? They will pick it up from his home before I actually pay the price...

Be VERY careful as there are lots of scams that use "shipping companies" and "escrow" and other things to sell items they don't even own. I'm the suspicious type I guess but I wouldn't buy without being able to see and touch the item myself or at the very least someone I know and trust seeing and touching.

It is a cousin of mine in texas who will arrange the shipping with the shipping company...not the seller...so the only worry is the mechanical status of the bike...the seller indicated that He holds the clear title and it has a VA state inspection thru 4/15.

Protect your cash at all cost- scammers are slick as a greasy nickel.

PayPal - Many car sellers will accept payment in multiple ways. One very safe way to make payment is through PayPal. If you are buying a car through Craigslist, use this payment method. PayPal will protect the buyer because the seller of the car must provide the Original Title of Ownership. If the seller cannot produce this, a case can be opened and PayPal will give the buyer back ALL the money.

Thanks king versys. I am going theough the doc you provided. The seller accepted from the beginning paypal and he was worried about the fees only...the seller also agreed to deliver the documents to the shipping company that I arrange (he refused to arrange the shipping for me...he said 500 usd to confirm the arrangement and the rest upon delivery of the bike and docs to the ahipping company the same day the pick up the bike)

I spoke to friend who is cherif in LA, he will speak to some collegues of his in VA to make sure that the deal is legitimate. I checked the seller's address on google map and it is exactly the same one in which the photos of the bike were taken....to be continued

haven't seen the bike, but i have met the seller, and made a smaller MC related purchase from him. looked AOK to me. CL listing is the same bike as ADV listing. the seller would be digging his own grave if he risked his reputation on ADV, so i'd say offhand that the deal is legit. still prudent to exercise normal precautions as with any deal of this type.
Thanks for your opinion. I am afraid I might loose the deal because the shipping company is taking time to confirm shipping arrangement and pick up date...

meanwhile I saw this

So was reading this thread . . . what do you mean? Because now you think you can ride two up?

Will you loose $500?
