I think if you are a base member the ability to edit only lasts 24 hours.
Maybe the forum moderator can help you out.
Or you could upgrade your membership.

I never did understand why people mark the post SOLD instead of deleting the post.

David P……I don’t think you can delete a post that has a reply….. no matter what your membership status is.

Just add a reply “sold” like kevin suggested.

As Kevin has stated, the beauty of NOT deleting the posts is that they serve as a historical fact, that can be used when researching such things as prices and even the correctness of a bike or numerous other pertinent info and specs that people are looking for.

all that information can come up in a search, even if the for sale listing is ancient history

Basic members have 24 hours to edit
Premium members have at least a year if I remember correctly
You can always report a thread and ask for deletion but enclose a link to the thread
