|+2 FREE to a responsible person. 1988 Honda GL1500 motorcycle |
My friend contacted this person, thinking the bike was in dire need of repair, and received this response:
Thanks for your interest and sorry for the late response , First of all i will like to introduce myself to you , My name is Tom Daniel and my wife name is Karen Daniel, 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 Daniel.

Called to place an ad to give away a free 1989 Honda GM 1500 due to death of previous owner. Gave a local address of a vacant lot. Phone caller ID showed up a phone number from Houston, TX. Caller was unable to pronounce the name of our town, nor did he know if we were a daily or weekly publication. Gave a gmail address as a contact. Please do not fall for these scams!
