    Default In a bit of a VIN pickle

    Alright boys, I'm in a doozie of a pickle here. I picked up a old pan shovel with a numbers matching clean title at a swap meet a while back worked on it a bit and decided to let it go a couple weeks ago to pay some bills and work on my other project. fella comes up buys it off me running riding bike with a title.

    fella calls me up today suspecting that the numbers look restamped like a dealer restamp from who fucking knows when. I had no idea that was even a thing and never suspected a thing about it the guy that owned it before me had the bike for about 30 years. and it was titled. I never pulled the engine fully but got it running pretty dang good.

    Well now that this fella has decided they are a restamp dude wants his money back and to bring the bike back. Which, sure fine. I had no idea and I'm not trying to fuck anybody over. problem is i paid some bills and bought some parts for the project and simply dont have the funds to buy the bike back.

    my question is what would yooooou do? I wanna work something out with dude but not sure what.

    I would tell him to fuck off, but in a nice way.

    When you sold the bike you told him sold as is? No warranty expressed or implied? Maybe offer to buy the engine back since that is the bad part?

    THE ONE TIME i dont have a guy sign an "as is" document. but no i never offered anything all private party vehicle sales in WI are final but I sell a lot of bikes to make extra money. and dont wanna be known as a scum ball but i plain dont have the cash to buy it back offering to buy the engine back is a good call tho.

    Tell him to enjoy his bike. He has a handful of friends pick it apart and expects his money back.

    He should have done due diligence before buying. As long as you were honest then it's his problem. Don't put yourself in a bind because he didn't do his homework
