dont know if other areas can see these area specific adds? the piaggio x9 above is for sale in tampa for 3500 . it has 360 miles on it.

this is my rant. it popped up for sale in orlando for 1000$. I was the first contact. I contacted him at 900am . "I can be there at 12". my final message to him "I will not be backing out, I am scooter fanatic and have been looking for an x9 for two years" he changed ad to pending. I went outside to fix flat on my trailer. I came inside at 1015 to see ad marked sold. I felt pretty cheated to say the least. while I was outside my phone was inside . right after my last message like 905am he asked "are you sure you are coming" I get why I missed out. I just felt he should of at least waited to here back from me, or at least wait till noon. still pissed and its been three weeks now.

As a seller, I've had people not show after waiting an hour and they were coming , they called before they left. Then they mysteriously wouldn't answer the phone. Guessing the ATM machine told them they didn't have the cash. First person with cash gets it.

As a buyer I've sent a deposit using PayPal, to really show I'm interested and will be there. Kind of like earnest money on a house.

some 20 years ago I bought a triump tr6 for 700. put a starter in it and advertised car for 2000. first caller was one hour away. I told him he wouldnt be wasting a drive. come out to get car. second caller was 10 minutes away. I told him I had appt and it wasnt for sale for the next hour. he wanted to come out anyway so I let him. when second caller arrived he saw car and offered 2500 on the spot. I said no I couldnt do that to somebody. first called got car for 2000 and went home happy. second caller went home pretty angry.

I guess I am cut from a different cloth then you. I believe a mans word is all he really has. if the bike was being sold first come first serve its usually stated. given he marked ad pending after I contracted and said I was not backing out I was confident in his selling techniques. lack of character in people is why I missed out. he broke our verbal contract to sell to someone else.

It sounds like you're pretty worked up and didn't read Christopher's reply accurately. Re-read his reply (and don't read into his reply) a few times after you settle down some. And being that this is NSM, and the X9 is modern, does this mean you have also posted another thread about this in the modern section?

same thing has happened to me, both as seller and buyer, on offerup. The built-in messaging is just horrific, as is the search function, and one ought not to dwell on the results either way.

But yes, we can see the out-of-area ad you linked here.

not really a big deal I missed out. I have too many scooters all of which qualified for deal of the day in my book.

my gtv turned into gts300 was $230
my helix was $450
the majesty was $250
mp3 500 was $200
brand new 0 mile beo 200 $900
385mile clean vespa 100 sport $400
clean 2005 vespa px150 $650

when I come here I use the new thread feature. pretty easy to just look at thread titles to see what you want to read. "deal of the day" is particularly attractive to me and I always dive in for a look.. shame it only applies to NSM crowd only.

but carry on. this will be my last post in here. I sold my two NSM scooters earlier this year. old scooters just nor for me at this time in my life.
