Well ladies and gentlemen, the end is in sight. I have had contact with a fine gentleman who has heard my story and followed my quest, and he has offered me a chance to own one of my Top Five bikes: The Gen1 Cleveland Cyclewerks Misfit.
The owner of the bike and I have spoken a few times in the past regarding this very bike and its sale to me, however at the time things were’nt right for me to even contemplate getting the bike, however now, with my proverbial ducks slowly coming into a row, I can now begin to plan for the future.
I questioned him at length regarding maintenance and upkeep in order to aviod my previous post’s argument: not buying someone else’s problem. He has assured me of the following:
- He has changed the fluids regularly.
- Regular maintenance has been preformed.
- When he parked it for storage, he drained the tank and ran it out of gas.
- He pulled the battery so it didn’t cause any other issues during storage.
Having spoken with him at length, I feel confident that I can say this bike will most likely not be another problem child.
More updates later!
