So when buying a bike privately do you guys do anything special to ensure that you're not going to be screwed over?
Something like a short written contract to protect yourself incase you find out the bike is not what it was supposed to be?
What about "gifting" bikes to save people the PST when they go to register their bikes?
I'm not sure how it's all supposed to work, but I thought I've heard of sellers writing a letter saying essentially the bike is being given as a gift to the buyer. Even though both parties know that's not the case.
If a seller doesn't "gift" me his bike, when I go to register it can I say I paid $2,000 for it, but still give my declared value as $6,000 (the real price I paid for the bike)
Any info is appreciated!
