    Subject: Re: ABOUT THE MOTORCYCLE.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your interest and sorry for the late response , First of all i will like to introduce myself to you , My name is Robert Gank and my wife name is Jane Gank , Am 61 years old and my wife will be 57 next coming month. We just have the chance to check our emails today, The bike is still available and its not for sale am only giving it out like i said on the advert.

    We are currently located in San Diego , California and the Honda bike is at ,Honolulu Hawaii. I have already asked movers to bring the Bike here from my son's house in Honolulu and was going to put up a new ad here in San Diego , California. But my wife Advised me to ask one of my friend to put up the ad on your Newspaper as she doesn't want to see the bike anymore cos of the memory of his son sudden death. She thought if we place the ad here in San Diego , she might still come across with you riding the bike. So at the moment i have put stop of moving the bike back to us in San Diego , California.

    We bought the Motorcycle for our son as his birthday gift last year september. Its HONDA 1988 GL1500. It is 5weeks now since he died and we would like for it to be passed out and seeing the bike always brings back it memory and it makes my wife cry, as the house will be emptied soon and I myself will be relocating to Winnipeg, Canada where I shall stay with other family members for care.

    Where are you based pls? If you are able to afford the delivery charges I can coordinate the movers to deliver the bike to you where-ever you are located in the state as I only gave them the instruction not quite long.

    Please let me know your position ( your full names and delivery address ) maybe I can contact the movers. I have attached a photo of it. This was taken two weeks ago.

    Note that: Am giving this bike to you to maintain it and use it very well for yourself , Due to the sudden death of our son. So we are not selling the bike to you. Also i should have been riding the bike myself , But due to the love i have for my wife , I dont like to see her crying as she wouldnt like to be seeing the bike.

    Mr and Mrs Gank.

    Mr. and Mrs. Gank,


    I am very sorry for your loss. I know first hand about losing a loved one in a motorcycle accident and i will pray for you and your family. As for the bike i would be honored to take it and ride in his and your memory. Ive never ever been given such a lavish and expensive gift that i will cherish for the rest of my days. What part of Honolulu is it in? I live in Mililani just North of Honolulu.

    damn it might be too late now. they are already switching their story

    Hello,

    Thanks for the email and your concern i really Appreciate your concern it really hard for us at the moment and all the family getting this out of our mind, The mover has alreay move the bike to their head office in AR , when i said we want to give the bike to you , but as it is now if you really interested in it you can email them on ( GRANNYAUTOMOVINGINC@LIVE.COM ) They are with the Paper work and the keys and the bike is in good condition so you have nothing to repair on it so email me back if you have interest in it and also have a contact with them before its too late.Thanks once again for your concern. Please keep me posted to know once you have contact the mover.

    Thank you and God bless you.

    Robert and Jane.

    Edit:AR? is that Arkansas? i think i may just have some family there lol

    damn great minds think the same lol this is what i sent them

    Sorry I didnt mention it sooner. Thats fine though we can still work something out. My brother live in AR and Im sure I could call him and he would be more than happy to drive anywhere in the state to pick it up, plus its the weekend so we could make this happen today if possible. Do you have a address the bike is at? Or the website of the moving company?

    hmmm you really think i should have someone inspect it before buying it? these people seem pretty legit. almost too legit

    obviously if i ask for that they arent going to say ok seeing as how there is no bike
