5. If a complete and running bike is for sale we would ask that the seller to be available by cell phone etc. and personally finalize the deal individually with the buyer --- test ride – title details etc.
Motorcycle parts and related Items for sale (preferably BMW) can be brought to us almost at any time we are close by or have the Swap market open through out the weekend..   
 This is a free service, no commissions charged.
