Default Why would list an item and refuse to give a price to a buyer

BOSSPIN has a custom motorcycle listed on this site. The bike sounds nice. However, he did not list a price (not uncommon). I emailed him to get information and the asking price. He refused to give me a price! He said that he would only give the price to people who were interested. Hello.... If I was not interested, I would not have asked for a price... I emailed him the the same statement. Then he got upset and said that I had a bad attitude. Let me see, If I wanted to sell something and you wanted to buy it, what is the first thing that you would ask me?.....PRICE...
I bought a different motorcycle not on this sight.....I was still a little miffed over his attitude, so I wrote to tell him that I purchased a bike from someone who really wanted to sell and not just display their bike. He then emailed me and called me everything but a milk cow........How do people like this expect to sell anything?

THE WAY I SEE IT IS HE DID NOT WANT TO SELL THE BIKE-HE WANTED SOMEONE TO BEG HIM AND PLEAD WITH HIM ON THIS BIKE ops: ops: ops: ---NOT HAPPENING WITH ME ON ANY DEAL

IF YOU WANT TO SELL SOMETHING DESCRIBE IT / HAVE LOTS OF PICS/SEND MORE IF SOMEONE IS ASKING/HAVE A PRICE ON IT/ BE WILLING TO DEAL IF NEEDED/---AND BE POLITE AND NOT BILLIGERENT TO BUYERS ASKING ????? :wink: :wink: :wink:

I AM GLAD YOU FOUND ANOTHER BIKE AND HOPE YOU ENJOY IT :lol: :lol:

I think some guys log on here to sell a car and when it sells, they just don't bother to come back to remove the add.

It is easier to hide from someone several states away when you sell them a junk transmission. This guy obviously knew there was something wrong and if you were local would have had to deal with you.

What a JOKE. But for you a blessing... a buyer who is "ready, willing & able" should NEVER be judged over the phone. The biggest objection is price in a sale, if he could not give that up, he is a flake. I hope that dude w/ the bike reads this.
