Bank transfer is a safe way to be paid . When I bought the Harley we drove to a Barclays , I said I'd like to pay this guy £4,200 and handed over my debit card . The seller did the same , I signed a bit of paper and that was it . Then , in a loud voice so everyone in the bank could hear , and in a horrible foreign accent , the seller said " Now you pay ransom I release your children " Funny guy and a pleasure to do business with . 😂😂

I could of sold them both in 3 days in the end but did not like a buyer he kept haggling so I kept the bike :D
And of course this is fine. One of my biggest eye rolls when selling a bike at the moment is people are so LAZY. If the first question isn't "is this still available" the second is "what's the lowest you'd accept". This is before even viewing. My usual retort is "I've priced this based on market value, any requests to purchase at a lower price will need to be backed up with a reason".

I don't think that's unfair. If they view the bike and aren't 100% happy with something, and explain it and why they think a certain lower amount because of it is justified, I won't take offense, even if it's ultimately over a thing or an amount that I'm not happy with (at that point I can still dismiss the offer after all).

The last bike I sold, one guy who was due to come and view it had been a right arse over this, and I had half a feeling that he was going to make a ridiculous offer that I was going to tell him to f**k off over. I was filled with joy when I sent him the message "Hi Jack, just as an update, the bike has just been sold" :mrgreen:
