Flyer5 Posted March 22, 2007 Share Posted March 22, 2007 A little advice needed . I am purchasing a bike VIA internet from a large dealership .I don't want to say exactly where yet . The original photo of the bike they advertise has a Corbin seat . The bike is on its way now should be here tonight sometime. The person bringing the bike up sent me photos of before he picked the bike up at the dealership and it has a factory seat no Corbin . I called today and was told too bad the seat was sold before I purchased the bike and never asked about the seat . I believe I did, knowing I didn't have to purchase a $700 seat was part of my decision to pay what I did. But I really don't have proof of this .He said I should have asked, like I said I believe I did mention it . He said anything that is not stock can be sold before the bike is sold . I stated that he should have stated in the ad that the seat was no longer a Corbin or changed the picture .Would this be a misrepresentation of product ? How can I handle this without going thorough legal channels ? Do I even have a leg to stand on if I have to ? The ad was a very generic so any info I received about the bike was from our conversations on the phone . Being 600 miles away I had to trust him . Does this mean I should have asked if it had oil in it since that is not stock . I understand buyer beware but this is just deceiving whether it was meant to be or not . Should I just lick my wounds and move on ? I will try to post pics . http://bmwsporttouring.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/frown.gif frown Link to comment
