Normally not my thing but I’ve gone back to this a few times now. I see a trip up to Belmont, MI in my future this afternoon.

EDIT - Wasn't meant to be. Bike was sold today before I could get to it. Maybe someone on BF?!?!

BikesDirect "Motobecane" not really vintage or classic but still a killer deal--only why is the seatpost cluster painted black that way? .

I am curious what kind of success you guys are having out there connecting with sellers and completing a purchase? 2 sellers I made full price offers on never got a response back even while ads stayed up - 1 is still up and she won't reply. Yesterday I drove 130mi RT 3+ hours got caught behind an accident and was 15 mins late. I told the seller how far I was traveling & traffic would be a variable. I asked for a cell # to update but he refused. When I arrived, he wasn't there. I waited 20 mins after messaging FB and he refused to come out of his apartment. After the 90-minute drive home I went to message him to try and understand what happened he left a raging message AT me saying that I was a scammer and a fraud, and he blocked and reported my account. I can't even begin to comprehend this since I was there exactly where I said I would be, and he couldn't even be bothered to walk the 75 feet out of his apartment and maybe see if I arrived late! Sad part is I really wanted the bike and I was interested in looking at a second bike he had listed and was prepared to make an offer. Now I am just out $50 gas and 3+ hours of my time........

I had a similar experience trying to buy a bike last week. Fortunately, it was only a 25 minute drive. When I texted the seller, he said he's afraid of scammers and suggested another meeting date and time. I passed on his offer.

Well that does suck.
There are some very strange people out and about, or holed up in front of a screen.
Best not to fund their weirdness.
