back when i was going to buy it i was going to have it shipped to southern nj. he just said he didnt want to deal with a middleman. i looked into shipping ans trailering it would cost from $300 and up, but shipping would be a hassle. it looked like a great bike and i was very interested in it and would have accepted it how it was. if i had the money i would still get it but i just spent it all tonight on a new computer. good luck selling it and congrats to the buyer.
