I can't understand why any bike for sale gets locked after it's been advertised on the forum!
Anyone interested in a bike is unable to request a viewing on the behalf of a potential buyer and countless questions that could be asked and viewed by anyone interested without contacting the seller everytime.
I'm on the look out for an MT for a friend but can't be bothered with the pointless PM's to the seller.
Why do it?
I note that at 20 51(above) you amended your original 18 11 post Over the years I have seen this happen , usually it has been done to avoid the person looking foolish

As for ' anyone interested in a bike is unable to request a viewing on behalf of a potential buyer' What's stopping them ? If anyone wants to ask a question of the seller there is absolutely nothing stopping them

If a seller is fed up answering the same question he can modify his advert to include the detail Over the years there have been both brief and long-winded adverts The long winded ones have usually contained a chunk of irrelevant or unsubstantiated stuff or petty detail such as ' almost new brake pads'

Perhaps, as the thread title says, it was Pointless putting them up for sale in the first place😊

It all depends.

Armstrongs are only worth £300, they're hardly 'classic' are they.

Whereas a Harley :oops: with a 604 conversion is worth £6000.
