The line

about not getting 6 months tax in his post office is crap as far as I can see - other people must use that post office to buy 6 month tax??

Given the fiasco its been, (bike not ready, extra charges etc), I'd be going back there wanting me dosh (including the extra charges) back and buy the bike from a dealer that knows what they're doing.

"showed me a picture."

Here's another picture of a ZX6.
You all owe me £1500 (plus tax).

:unsure:

What I mean is, does the bike even exist?

ZX6.

So hopefully you've cancelled the deal and you're expecting a refund via the credit card company, is that what you're saying?

Keep looking.

Sorry, but...

He showed you a picture & you gave him £1,500. No actual look at the bike, or test ride or anything?


Think he saw you coming mate:shock: Anyhow if on CC just stop transaction and get refund if he hasn't provided as deal.

Just looked at his webpage and seems to have a very wide selection of bikes, lots of scoots and 125s in the budget end of the market, a volvo car, and wait for it....


A brand new Ducati Desmo priced at just under £70,000

Strange mix, but definitely something for everyone there.

Yep, Hartgate are okay

Use the Honda dealer in Mitcham all the time, great bunch of guys and dead straight.


Will always give a courtesy bike when in for service, could be a new demo, could be a second hand one, but gets you home.

Anyhow, hopefully CC came through and all sorted now? Good luck
