Not really sure what someone would lie about, considering it is not a public poll.

Unless you mean they say they'd bust em, but instead they'd buy it.

if i found out. i would show no interest, leave with with a thank you.
and wait a week or so to call the authority's. Too many peeps carry
nowadays, so i don't wanna get dead over a immediate reaction.

1st off, rule m out. if they don't have a tittle, i don't go any further. period.

The Universe has a funny way of flushing the toilet, soooner than you think. this homeboy will be locked up with a felony record.

This one is simple. I hate fukin thieves. They are only a small step above child molesters. Someone elses bike, I turn them in. My bike, the body will never be found.

right on i wouldnt call the law right then and there but by the end of the day that bike wouldnt be riden around by a thieving hoodlum of the arrangements but if i did find out it was stolen i'd probably just tell them that i gotta hit up a bank right quick and that i'd meet them in the same spot in an hour and then have the cops get em while the seller is in route to the meet up location. something like that..

No. You are only slightly better than the POS that stole it in the 1st place.
