    1939 indian chief motorcycle - $18000 (lagrange nc)

    Someone should check this out. Posted today so it wont last long if it's what he says it is.

    Vintage motorcycle for sale. Will need moderate amount of work to get running again. Has not been started in five years but has been garaged. Was fully restored and in good running condition until owner could no longer ride. Great project vehicle for the right person and a BEAUTIFUL bike. Serious inquiries only please.

    The guy puts "serious inquiries only" and then has no telephone number. I tried a lot of Craig's list postings before finally buying the motorcycle I am going to restore. I was amazed at the number of scams out there. If there is no location or phone number given be very careful. My favorite response to most of the ads with no phone numbers and with good bikes at great prices is, "I got this motorcycle in a divorce. Being that I am only a woman, I have no need for it." Got this exact same response to dozens of ads on Craig's list. I really like the "I am only a woman" part.

    That and the Iraq war widow who doesn't know anything about it. Some people just like to control things and see what comes in when they don't list a number I think. I've seen a number of good buys sold only on an email so it's always worth checking out just in case imo.

    Yep. Always worth a follow-up. Just be careful before wiring money to their bank in Nigeria. :-)

    I always cross check their identity and address via a finder program, only way to be safe.

    I emailed the guy yesterday, and just got a reply.
    "Hi Doug, the bike was picked up today by the new owner. Thank you for your interest."
