I wish i had a Sportster or a Bonneville instead of a POS 100cc Honda Win.
"No, but thanks for the offer." This is in keeping with the concept that you should never negotiate with yourself.

So IMO Franzen rates highly as a craftsman but not well as a...

I would contact him and see what he says. Ebay will not do anything for you.
