It's been fun


Recommended Posts

Well.....I've tried for the last year to keep things afloat. My job being outsourced has not been a really good thing for me. yeah i'm still working, but not making near what I was. It is with great difficulty, that I am being forced to file bankruptcy. That most likely means, I'll be losing my beloved Chief. I'm conniving right now on ways to sell it to a friend, who may let me buy it back later.... I'm not sure what if anything will work out. I'll stop by from time to time to keep in touch with all the great friends I've made here...and to those of you who have really touched my life...Thanks. You have no idea how hard it is to sit here and type this email. I wanted great things for the Miami Valley Chapter of the IIRA, but alas it is not to be...at least by my doings.....I wish all of you who are making the trek to IRIP a safe, and happy journey. May the Great Spirit always be with each and every one of you, and watch over you all each and every day of your lives.

Maybe everyone on the board send fungus 10 bucks and he can pay his Chief off.

 

I'm in.

The Chief's paid off...its other bills that have been mounting up since the pay cut. And yes, I'm thinking of every way possible to keep the Chief.

damn fungus,

i'm sorry to hear your chief got stolen! I'll keep my eye out down here for you.  If there happens to be one just like it parked in my garage I'll make sure it's not yours...then since I have two, I'll give it to you in a few months after things cool off (weather wise of course).... :uhoh:

Here is an idea. Indian ain't worth much. Get a (few) friends to "buy" it off you for .... let's say $8,000.

 

It gets it out of your name, it is (at least looks) legit. Then you buy it back ASAP.

 

I did that for a friend a few years ago. I had his bike for a few years then he bought it back for the same price. I had a bike to ride for a couple years only for the cost of up keep.

You might be able to keep it. I didn't have to sell my shit when I filed bankruptcy. Matter of fact, shortly after the dust settled, I went out and financed another car. Turned out I wasn't a risk because I had no debt and  I couldn't file again for a number of years. Did you talk to a bankruptcy attorney yet?

Good luck my friend. I don't ever want to ever want to be in a position that puts my Indian on the "block, thought it can happen to any of us at any time.

 

I pray that good will come out of this for you.

ScottDog...when I had the first initial interview with a paralegal I think...surely didn't act like a lawyer to me, she said I'd most likely lose the bike, as they (judges, courts or whatever) see it as a luxury vehicle....

 

LR...I'm working on just such a plan. I thought about telling them I sold it for 5 grand, because the motor had locked up...what proof do they have right?

Here's the deal.  I'll buy it for 6000 and I'll pay for shippin.  I will hold it for 2 years and guarantee not more than 100 miles a year.  At the end of 2 years you can buy it back for 6000 + shipping and any taxes that I had to pay.  Of course this all hinges on some lawyer telling me this is legal.  (my neighbor is a bankruptcy lawyer and will give me free advice).

 

After two years, if you don't or can't take it back, well, its mine.  

 

You did say it was a Chief right?  I don't want no Spirit rollin up.

 

P.S.  This would work better if you could do it locally, but if you have no other options let me know cause it ain't over till its over.

I'll buy it for $100/mo, and pay shipping.  Zero miles to be put on the scoot until it's paid off.

 

You'll have a reposession clause, but of course, it will be up to you to do so.

 

wink wink, nod nod.

If your debts exceed your assets - You are in the clear.

 

Take it from someone who had a 7 figure BK in '89...

 

Thanks, Danny

I had an old Triumph sports car at the time and was told the same thing. I took it all apart and told them it was a restoration project. All of a sudden it was worthless in the courts eyes.

Although we've never met, were all family here, bro!  If there is anything I can do to help you out here in New Hampshire (Store that mis-placed bike...) let me know.  Wish you the best!
