I think that's fair enough; I'd probably be the same if it were my bike. Go and see it, prove you're genuine, then do the checks. You can probably do it all there and then if you've got 3G/4G/WiFi.

Thanks Pleiades, wasn't sure how to approach that; i'm new to purchasing bikes... might give it another go.

I would. Looks like a decent bike. The fact that the owner is "cautious" could be seen as a good thing - he obviously treasures his bike and thus probably looked after it quite well.

I would not advise to buy from someone, who wont reveal VIN and reg plate to check history. You are the one, who should be cautious here.

I'm not so sure I agree with that.

I for one would not give my registration number or VIN to any Tom, Dick or Harry who just rang me up asking for it. If you did then what's to stop some tea leaf who's stolen a bike that matches yours using your reg and VIN? Any potential buyer would need to show some serious commitment first - i.e. turn up and actually look at the bike and show some interest - prove they're genuine and not a time-waster, or worse still a potential criminal. As it stands (at this stage) the prospective buyer (balzano_1) has nothing to lose, but the vendor has absolutely everything to lose!

Fair enough if he goes to see the bike and he doesn't want to reveal information/show documents, then walk away.

I think the seller's behaviour is perfectly normal and acceptable in this case. He is right to be cautious.

I just picked up a 2010 last weekend with 7000 miles for £3 private.

Feel like I overpaid, as you have to leave £££ for DNA Stage 1 + 2 filters plus the o2 sensor & Kev mod will add an extra £250 onto the price.

Hello and welcome from overcast Newtownards

There is a second hand kev mod for sale in Belfast on gumtree. He's looking close to new price but could be worth a bid.
