Interested in the bike, in Colombia

Hi Dylan

Im interested in the bike.. Im writing in behalf of my friend Diego, in case you get a message from his its the same.

I have exactly the same bike, so as some of my friends, so I know it pretty well.

We are located in Medellin, Colombia, are you crossing though here? You should, its worthy!

In case you are, its highly probable my friend its interested in the bike.
- Is it the price negotiable?
- You say the mileage its 32,000miles, where were you when you posted this?
- Can we get more pics?

My email is builes.carlos@gmail.com, my freinds emai is carmon0402@gmail.com.

The bikes location at approx 32,000miles is in Lima, Peru.

Im heading north now, and should be in Quito area within 1 or 2 weeks.

Otherwise, if the bike is not sold in Quito, I will continue north with the bike, and should be in Colombia by late Oct/early Nov.

Yes its feasible that I can come to Medellin, Columbia.

Yes, absolutely the price is negotiable as per condition at time of sale.

Darin and Carlos, I will send you both emails.
