prospective buyer beware...
« on: June 28, 2018, 11:11:33 pm »
please let it be known, the bike in this ad
https://boulder.craigslist.org/mcy/d/1999-kawasaki-concours-zg1000/6615554830.html

had MAJOR issues, do not believe what you read, and above all do not pay the asking price.
the bike has had 2 valve drops, same valve twice, and numerous other 'issues' it is not, I repeat NOT, a bike or advertisers statements of truth, to be a loss of your money on...or to be something I would wish upon anyone in COG
I cannot do anything with regard to craigslist, to make the disclosure truthful, all I can do is warn those I know, don't know, or otherwise, to be vigilant, and pass the temptation.

The issues shown in the pictures alone would turn me off. I wouldn't offer half that much.

that word is not what I would describe as appropriate for the timeline of events incurred, and the portrayal for the sale to an unsuspecting customer.

simply issuing a Caveat Emptor.
