Title: Selling Humphrey my QuattroVelo
Post by: Auntie Helen on September 29, 2018, 05:31:33 pm
I’m selling Humphrey and have someone very keen to buy him.

He’s got no money though so wants to pay me 1000€ and ride off with Humphrey, and pay me the remaining 7250€ in instalments of 1000€ per month.

Funnily enough I said no!

I tried to sell a trike a while ago and was made a very similar offer. I declined. The odd thing was the abuse my refusal generated. Some people....

May one ask why you're selling? It looks gorgeous!

...and I've always been a sucker for a BRG paintjob. <SIGH>

I don’t get on with it, my Milan suits me much better. I don’t need two 9000€ velomobiles!

My partner Klaus has been riding him but already ordered his own which should arrive in the next couple of weeks.
