is there a protocol for lifting someone elses find for your own?

so i posted here that i found an old mv by me and was looking for some info on the model. a member on this forum used my photos and info and went and bought it before i had chance to get back to town. several members reached out me to say that if i didn't buy it to post it for sale so someone could get it. i would think this a pretty opportunistic move by someone. most people asked me first since i was definetely set on purchasing the bike. the owner even said this person used my ad and pictures to find the bike

thx
allen

Poor show isn't it. I've had similar on other (car) forums. Sadly there are some very selfish people in this world.

Poor show, yes, but you did post it on the Internet, on an MV specific enthusiast forum. Also information contained in your post states where your location was and what kind of motorcycle shop it was at. You should play your cards closer to your chest I think.

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

Agree 100% with Ian, having said that, there's no way I would have made that purchase under those circumstances. I must admit when I first saw the original post I (now) regret not for doing it but I was going to PM you and say "What the hell are you doing just go get the damn thing RIGHT NOW and if you change your mind next week/next month/next year - I'll take from you!"

I have been very fortunate with my acquisitions, with people being both, helpful & benevolent towards me knowing the kind of home the bikes were going to and wanted them to do so - my America and Raid being the optimum examples of that for those the know the stories. I kind of think of all people being like that - wrong obviously.

At the end of the day you are who you are and all people are different.

I understand your frustration but you have to let it go and move on otherwise it will do your head in.

In the interest of balance, the purchaser didn't go down next day either - there was 13 days between post and purchase which could have made one think - that you "Didn't think it was worth it". The fact that you were out of town would only have been known to you. I could easily have made the purchase under those circumstances.

I will say, that had I made that purchase & found out that info later I'd now sell it back to you, those that know me, would know that's a straight up statement but there's no chance of that happening in this case. I am just saying...............

I do genuinely feel sorry for you though.

Cheers
Rob

Wink ?

I agree with Ian and Rob.......

when you're looking for a rather rare and obscure object and find one........

probably shouldn't tell anyone

when I bid on ebay....... it's in the last few seconds

never before

Totally over it. No big deal. It was just that the owner said to me "some guy from a mv forum came in with the information from my photos". That doesn't sound like a friend or someone who already knew about it. Anywho I have a beautiful 74 ducati 750 a guzzi lemans 1 and have a lead on a laverda 750 and multiple Ducati single parts. Got my hands full. Hopefully I'll be back on this forum someday

Allen,
Your story about Ed telling you that I came there because of your stinking post is complete BS, and you know it!
Ed told me that there were about 5, YES 5, other people that had all of a sudden started calling him about the bike. So, yeah, there were OTHERS that saw your post and were going to buy it! I just made it there first. And again Jerky..................it had NOTHING to do with your beloved, blessed, heavenly, posting about the bike.
GET OVER IT YOU FRIGGING BABY!
I guess this thread is to try and get the mods to kick me off the forum????????????????????????
Hopefully they have a spine, unlike some.
Call me if you want!
973-727-8596
We can go down to Ed's together so he can verify that I ain't the guy that "stole" the bike because of your posting!
Let's see if you do it.

Chris

Here's the pics, for all you other guy's, so you don't have to go back to the other sacred posting...............

Not a mirror, as I think a 500 pound object just may break it, but an example of my metal polishing! It was a badly corroded chunck of aluminum/alloy that I found laying buried under leaves for years. I guess I should be flattered that Allen thought it was a mirror. And ALLEN, the bike gets ridden, probably more than ANY other MV 750 in North America. All spring, summer, and fall, it's in the garage ready to get ridden. It's when the weather gets nasty that it's moves into the living room (my wife's idea BTW!!!). Allen, notice the Christmas type decorations on the window and the SNOW outside????
