It's like the guy says "Now I will sell you this car, but you must agree to abstain from marital relations with your wife for 2 months after you buy it, or I will NOT sell you the car!". I mean, what do you say to something like that? I'd show him the money, tell him what he seems to want to hear, and disappear down the road, his asking price safely in his hand and any connection with him severed forever. Anything else would be crazy.
And what the hell is wrong with buying old chopper parts and frames and selling them on eBay? I've found old chopper parts in generic swapmeet boxes I've bought, or bought old chopper peanut tanks, old chopper frames with BSA motors and flat rear fenders in them, and I immediately unbolt the good stuff I want, and flog off the chopper tat on eBay, and it always sells. That's what eBay is FOR .... !!!
If you put ethical boundaries as a condition of sale .
And the buyer does not honor those conditions..
The ethics are breached .
If no other enforceable provisions are provided for. In the conteact
The contract is enforced ...by the buyer knowing he has lied.
What does "ethical boundaries" mean? I mean, what would be an example of an "ethical boundary" put on a sale of an old motorcycle part?
I would never cheat anyone; never misrepresent what something was, never take a man's money and not give him what he paid for. But what is this "ethical boundary" thing?
Is the seller going to tell me I must convert to Buddhism, or promise to call my Mom every day, or never sell the part on to someone with a criminal record, or promise never to bolt a BSA part onto a Triumph? Seriously? And if I buy the part and don't follow those conditions to the letter, that's an "ethical" breach of some kind?
you can play hard ball and say its only the money . How much do you want .
But if the guy says " i want the part to go to a good home " ... and you lie just to get the part ... whats the deal ?
It depend on the relationships with the buyer and seller ... and the relationship you have with yourself .
When that not-run project ...that your best-buddy gave to you for 20buck ... is resold for 2 grand ... whats the deal ?
Did you intend to decieve , ... and keep the money ... then you have honored your personal intent at the risk of a friendship .
Was the project in you shed for 20 years ... and you both had forgotten about it ... the you will both likely laugh about it over a beer .
Asking up front the buyer intent , as Irish did , is as valid a method ... as a blind sale .
Asking if the Chopper dude is a picker was an astute question.
The chopper dude is free to say none of your business ... they are establishing a Baseline for negotiations .
There are many conditions of sale other than "fee simple" ... where 100 % of the product .. is traded for 100% have the money.
Sold as ...Get it of my property today for 20 dollars .. you pay today but wait 2 months to pick up the item.
The seller has resold or wants a storage fee . ..
What are the legal remedies and ethical considerations . Did you break a leg or chase a redhead.
Did the seller need the space ? Or are they just being a dick ? ... Was the price part of the speedy removal ...
Is There a solution that leave both parties satisfied. .?
