A Barn bike

While talking bikes with a couple of new local customers the subject of vintage bikes comes up, then racing, then Ducati...then I hear. Jeez, I've got this old Ducati 350 single that's been in my barn for years. I just want to get rid of it. He tells me how dirty and old it is...mentions the alloy rims are still nice. I say, hey, I'm used to that, I've dug lots of old messed up bikes out of barns...maybe I'll take off your's my phone number. Give me a call if you want to get rid of it.
On the way out he mentions again, I'll probably give you a call about the bike. I'm like no problem, I've got no projects this winter.
Wonder what it is. He's a relative of an employee so I can get in touch if I have to. Don't want to seem too eager though.

It almost happened to me like that. But the outcome has been always bad. I guess I have to learn to show no emotions. I guess I get too enthusiastic, and these people that were planing to get rid of that old bike, realize that my excitement must mean something.

Ussualy as I call back to materialize the transaction , I am told....dude...sorry...but my cousin( my brother , my buddy, my nephew....whomever...<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle> ) came along and took the bike....

<img src=icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle>...ya right!!!!
