    Get ahold of Kyle Rittenhouse and ask him to go with you. He could have my back any day of the week. He's proven himself way beyond question!

    Give your M-S password to your next of kin. Have them let us know how it went for you.

    Okay, guys, thanks for the responses. I figured I'd get the typical "beware" responses but I want to clarify a few things for some that assumed on here.

    It's not a vintage or collectible car. My side business is parting out specific model project motorcycles and this one fits the bill to the tea. We're not talking thousands of dollars here, only hundreds.

    I've bought plenty of bikes from "white trash" and "rednecks", guys drinking beer before noon in the sticks, etc. without any issues. Is this situation really that much different?

    I did ask the seller to send me a pic of the title and a video of the bike running (even though I know it doesn't run well, hence the partout) but he hasn't responded yet. I guess I'm not going if he doesn't produce the required media.

    Some really amusing responses on here but it's really not that funny. I'm no racist, a social chameleon.

    Cocked, locked, and ready to rock, doc!

    I grew up at Morang and Whittier, on Landsdowne.
    Our old house was torched and boarded up. Made me sad. I wonder what the excuses are that are used to explain how such a nice neighborhood could become what it is today?
    I know who they blame...

    This old soldier smells ambush. Try to get it on uTube so we can watch if it doesn't work out for you...Friday nights are for football, no going to the hood on a debate night.

    Good luck whatever you decide. Mornings would be a better plan.

    You know your business better than anyone.

    The whole premise behind vintage anything, is somebody doesn’t want something and the best deals are in the strangest places.

    In the modern world no Tikki no washy. I mean if you can’t send me a picture of the paperwork that shows you have the right to sell It to me, I’m not interested.
    There’s another one out there hiding in the bushes somewhere.

    I collect vintage firearms, specifically American made shotguns, and I’ve run through my share of high-end automobiles.

    As long as the title is clean I’m coming with the trailer. I don’t care what color your skin is, just the color of your money.
    Post back after you pick it up.

    There’s a hundred ways to ensure it’s a safe enough transaction.

    People won’t wear a mask, but they’re afraid of half of an entire city, it cracks me up.

    This is probably the most constructive post on this matter yet, thanks for the input.

    Well, the seller isn't responding to my title and video request so I've decided not to travel down to the ghetto. If he does eventually respond with the documentation, I'm going to insist he trailer the bike to a better suburb in a public place and that I'll even cover his trailering costs.

    I don't know how you came by the lead.
    Commonly if you place an advertisement on any of the online marketplaces you are forced to sift through bogus contacts. It's just the way the modern world is.
    I can't tell you how many calls I get from preachers and social service agencies that want me to donate an automobile that I am trying to sell and have listed for sale.
    Evidently there are people that it's just their hobby to sit at home and irritate people trying to sell something.
    So if this 1 turns out to be a Dry whole, who cares, there will be another 1 along shortly.

    I bought my 2015 Jag for 10¢ on the dollar because I had cash and ambition.
    Next up is a Panamera.
