Sorry, it sold to a fellow from England who has a friend from Uganda who is working the hurricane disaster relief in Louisiana who is sending a cashier's check for $12,500 and will pick up the bike in a month or so.
I am wiring back via Western Union only $3,500 to England and I get to keep $9,000 for the Tommasini because it is so rare and they want it so bad!

Benita,
As the honorable person and man of your word I am sure you must be, I am certain you understand I would not want to go back on my word with the previous buyer. However, I do have a rare one-of-a-kind racing bike made of air hardened Silly Putty that I would sell for the $10,000 price.
====================
HIM
I like and fully understand ur stands and wld hold on.I wld really like to go into business with u cos of this gesture u hv displayed,its shows how nice u are as a man.I wld buy ur racing bike and wld like to make a payment of $15,000 which wld include payment of shipping of the racing bike and all other item i hv with the shipper.I wld also go further to offer u an extra $250 for westernunion charges to wire the balance of $5000 back to my shipper who's contact details i wld send to u when payment is sent to u.The shipper will come to ur location for the pick when payment is made.I wld like to hear back from u with the payment details which will include name,address and contact phone number to which payment can be issued and sent to u.Will be waiting to hear back from u soon.

Benita,
I am so sorry! I left out a zero in the price for the collector's edition Silly Putty bike. It is $100,000, which would make your cost $95,000 if I wired back $5,000 to you. Please let me know ASAP as there are many, many bike item collectors clamoring for this oh-so-rare item!
==========================

Is $95,000 ur last price?if so let me so we can proceed with the payment asap. Benita

Benita,
You sound like a man who knows his bikes! What would your maximum offer be?
===================
HIM
Wht is ur own last price for the bike,and i wld start from there

Benita,
You are not going to believe this! The fellow said he sent me a $250,000 cashiers check and all I have to do is send him $10,000 by Western Union. I don't even have to ship the bike! He is going to have a friend pick it up for him on February 30, so I get to keep it another six weeks to look at it and remember it before it will be gone. I can't believe my luck on this sale!
===================
HIM
Does this mean i lost out on the bid/sale for the bike?pls reply
====================
ME
Benita,
The only bike I have left, and it is even more rare then the air hardened Silly Putty one I just sold, is an Italian model made entirely of different colored and shaped pastas and cheeses. I rode it in the Tour de France last year when Lance Armstrong won his record 7th Tour de France. Perhaps you remember the story about me riding it or saw the pictures of me riding the red, green, and white pasta bike on the news? I hope so. I would sell it for $300,000, but would not be willing to send via Western Union a payment to you of more than $15,000 because I really hate to sell it.
======================

Hello,
Does tht mean ur selling?and if so,pls let me know the last price so i can issue u payment and we can proceed.

I would take $350,000 for the Pasta and Cheese bike, which would allow me to make $300,000 on it.

That guy would be a sucker to pay that much for the pasta and cheese bike because next year's model will be even cheesier which will have a serious impact on the value of the bike you rode in the Tour DeFrance.
