  • thinking about selling...

    Hi guys,
    Just a thought but I'm not being able to ride at the moment, we're opening up a store and with a 2 and 4 year old it just doesn't seem to justify having the bike sitting here. On one hand it doesn't cost much to have it around because it's not being used, on the other hand I just modified the hell out of it.
    And of course there's always the money issue, I think I could really use it as a back up, just in case I really needed it.
    Any advise welcome, thanks!

      Re: thinking about selling...

      I sold one before when I moved to the states, it didn't feel good. I got this one about a month after living here and would certainly keep it if it wasn't for the situation we're in at the moment. As for now, opening up a store eats up a lot of dough, my wife was laid of about a month ago and she was the main contributor. With the store she will be too of course but right now we could really use the money even only as a backup. I can always buy another one next year. (I know now how to modify it...)

        only you know but i can confirm that selling a bike is like sending a child to the orphanage and starting a business often leaves you with as much money as a junkie has laying around.
        I know this does not clarify anything , but only you know what is best for your situation

                That is one good looking machine; considering all the work you've done to it, and the obvious pleasure you get from it, take a step back and try to be objective......once it's gone there's no time for second thoughts.

                  Thanks for the responses, I'm offering it up for sale and see what happens. Selling it would give us some breathing space though and with two little kids 4 and 2 that's quite something. I have no time to ride it, although I'd like to keep it around I think it's best to sell and look for something again next year.

                  The shop is about makeup and theatrical supplies. My wife is a fabulous makeup artist and sell's her stuff like hotcakes. We're opening up a shop in New Hope, PA which is a very touristic spot for one but there's no real competition in the direct area. There are a lot of artists and actors, they have a playhouse and it's very popular. Besides the beauty makeup, we'll be selling theatrical makeup and artist supplies for casting and molding and also materials for making (makeup-) prosthetics. (create your own monster face etc.) Brands are Ben Nye (theatrical and beauty makeup), Jane Iredale (mineral beauty makeup), Environmolds (molding/casting products environmentally safe).
                  We're getting awesome responses and we're not even open yet, I think this is going over pretty good (I hope anyway). We're also working on our website which will be up soon too. I will post the web address soon when I have something to show for.

                    you guys definitely arent the best investors ...

                    sell it. dump your heart, soul and wallet into your business if its something that is feasible and you are truly passionate about, and we'll see you in 2 years when you come back here with a 1098R or a one off custom Sam build in your garage.
