|He'll consider anything except a Royal Enfield.|
He is in the market for a "running good bike."
He'll even pay $1,500 for it, "as long as it's NOT a Royal Enfield."
To be fair, he's looking for a motorcycle of 650cc to 800cc and there aren't many "running good" Royal Enfield Interceptors out there in his price range anyway.
The would-be-buyer has a few additional warnings for sellers:
- "I'm an old CraigsLister and I can smell a troll or a spammer from 10 miles away — don't even start."
- "Junk, crap and stuff won't even be looked at."
- "This bike must have a windshield, and saddlebags of some kind."
If you think your non-Royal Enfield motorcycle measures up, and you're willing to take $1,500 for it, by all means, get in touch.
He notes that he'll have the cash for you "around the 1st."
This blog lists Royal Enfields for sale in the United States. I look at a lot of CraigsList ads.
Here's my take: The spammers and tire kickers are going to respond, no matter how you beat them up in your ad. That's the Internet for you. So why bother treating the regular guys who read your ad to a tirade?
There's nothing wrong with being frank. I like this buyer's final sentences a lot, and I wish he had left it to this:
"I'm a serious buyer, I suggest you be a serious seller so we don't waste each other's time. Will reply to emails."
