Second opinion] In the past...
Second opinion] In the past, buying bank repose, one could gauge the quality of merchandise in relation to pennies on the dollar and determine the value of the purchase. For example, a $10,000 crotch rocket for say, $4000 in perfect condition would be an amazing purchase. These did exist a decade and 1/2 ago. Is it possible for you to show me a Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki crotch rocket like the above on the link and then tell me how you did it? I would be pretty amazed. In the not-too-distant future students of snow on the ground, I would like to do The same. However, should the purchase be within 150 mile radius for pickup or may the device be shipped and if so would this make it cost prohibitive?This is an add on question pertaining to information about links for vehicle purchases You just recently provided earlier.

I have read and reread what you wrote and it appears hypothetical questions but as a statement and not a question, and my apologizes if I missed that. May I ask what your question is then that you would like us to assist with?

Thanks,

Joe
