    what do i look for beside the usual scrathces and scuff marks

    do most private party sales only accept cash?

    i dont want to bring that much cash on me (what if he robs me)

    is it better to go to his house or public place?



    thanks

    yeah, go to his house. if you can get him to allow a test ride by leaving your car there or something, that's good - but don't be surprised if he wants cash in his hand during the test ride.

    as for actually paying for it, you can go to a bank and withdraw large amounts of money with no problem by going inside - I walked into a bank and pulled out $2200, with no issues.

    have a shop look over the bike. you will be paying for that of course, but if he refuses to let you pay someone to look over it don't buy it.
