Hi all
wish i was starting off on a happier note.
short version is i was to take delivery of an 03 100th anniversary mint vrsca seller dumped it the night before the deal was done.
slow speed at intersection. scratched SE exhaust bent in tank.
I am now not sure how to handle this.no money changed hands no paper work.
I have no idea how much to reduce offer or if parts are still available.

Sorry if this intro rabble on or if i should have post in another area.

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.:banghead:

Have the seller take it to the stealership and get an estimate. Offer him what you were going to make the deal at less the estimate and then buy the parts yourself and save yourself the labor costs :)

Big bucks there. Get a real good estimate of repairs before proceeding.

re-intro

thanks for the welcome and responses.
I let this one go and found a better ride.
03' anniversary AW,5000 original miles, Two tone, Vince and Hines exhaust(blows the SE away in IMHO) and sundowner seat.
No other mods and don,t have any plans for any I love this bike the way it is.
Being 7 years old maybe someone can share their experience with the egocentricity of this model and year.
front clunk?

Thanks in advance to moderators and posters they make forums work.

The "clunk" has happened to the majority of people. HD released a service bulletin fixing this problem by replacing the stem nut. I believe people have gotten their dealers to do it for free, mine wanted to charge me $60 for the nut.

Or you can do what I did, and just re-torque the nut. Problem solved

welcome, and I am glad you found a different vrod to buy... there would have been nothing wrong with re-working the deal and then fixing the other one, but now you have no hassle to worry about!

enjoy the new scoot and hope to meet ya soon!
