How I buy used bikes when I don't have the cash
I've talked to people that say they're interested in buying my bike but need to sell their motorcycle or otherwise first need to raise the money. FYI, I've used www.lightstream.com
in the past to fund my new-used motorcycle purchase then pay it off after the sale of the former bike. You need only average credit and they'll give you an unsecured "normal" fixed rate loan. I've even done this with cars. That is, two auto loans at the same time (secured in the case of cars). At one time I had two secured auto loans with them and one unsecured loan used for a bike. Get a loan if needed, buy my bike then sell yours. Love these guys!
Finding these guys was like a dream come true but I'm also posting this to serve myself so some of your (including me) cash poor asses can buy my bike!
