How to buy Chicago motorcycle by owner on Craigslist
Craigslist is a widely used classified advertisement website that contains multiple local postings for individual areas throughout the whole world. Craigslist offers shopping listings, such as items from toys, car, truck or RV, a musical instrument to a bike, etc., that a person may need or want to buy. Also, there you can find many other commercial services and dealers. The Craigslist listings are quite similar to visiting several garage sales or flea markets online, or even employment offices right from your home, with low prices or even you, may find some free items.
Here is what you need to do to shop for a Chicago motorcycle by the owner listed on Craigslist. Follow the steps listed below:
Step 1 – Go to the official Craigslist website at www craigslist.com. You can open the site via a PC's web browser, or right from your mobile phone.
Step 2 – Then you should select the state name, where you live, or want to find the motorcycle in. Also, you need to then select your city or community, or even one place near your town.
Step 3 – Now you have to choose a sales category which is located in the drop-down list on the left side of your screen.
Step 4 – Then press on the category from the menu. You must narrow the field of items or stuff in which you are particularly interested. It will also help you to find the item listed on sale quicker than without selecting it.
Step 5 – Click on the "free stuff" as your selected category on the drop-down list which will enable you to see how lucky you might be to find the listed motorcycle by owner. Note that, there could be free dirt, rocks, furniture, scrap metal, firewood–old or even green (long or pre-cut pieces that you can have to cut or take later), used lumber, garage sale leftovers, etc.
Step 6 – You should enter a search item, its brand or even a kind. For instance, you can spell out a search for a "motorcycle," under the category of "vehicles or cars" by clicking that. Note that a great number of advertisements display pictures, and so the search engine box has a button so that Craigslist users can limit their results to advertisements and listings that include photos.
The user can also limit his or her search to items among certain prices. To narrow down the searching, click on the "lowest price," as a search setting. Here, you will see that $1 will lead the listing. You can either type in minimum and a maximum number of prices that you are ready to pay for the motorcycle listed on Craigslist.
Be aware that people often put $1 to attract and get users to click their listing which can include higher-priced items.
Step 7 – The user can create a bookmark or a favourite of his or her search so that he or she can then search easier on the next day, next weekend, or generally on the next use of Craigslist. Be wary that once you open Craigslist Chicago motorcycles by owner listing for the last city (i.e., Chicago) that you searched for, you will be able to view your last search results.
Step 8 – Now, once you select all the options correctly, the site will display available sales for Chicago motorcycles listed by owners. You should click on the title of an item which you can see in the listing of items in search results, that you would like to examine in detail. It is recommended that you carefully read the seller's advertisement as well as its description for that motorcycle).
For example, in the above image, you can see some of the available listings that will appear after you filter your search. In the first image, you can see 91 cb750 Nighthawk motorcycle posted 5 days ago on June 15, 2021. The owners set a price of $2,700 (seen on 20.06.2021). Under the photo, you can view its description to find how in what condition the motorcycle is, and also you can check its fuel, paint colour, etc., details on the right side of your screen. You can also see the area location of the owner.
Step 9 – Read the listing carefully and be doubtful of exiting descriptions. Be wary that an advertisement should consist of a brief description of the condition of the item listed on sale, its price, and owner's location and mobile or telephone number. It is recommended that when buying the item on Craigslist, you follow the owner's instructions to the buyer (i.e, to you) such as guiding you on how to use the secure Craigslist email inquiry, or how to call through a phone number.

Step 10 – You may try to reply to the owner with a message sent via Craigslist’s anonymous secure response link. Note that you are allowed to paste that link right into your email to send the inquiry to Craigslist, and then they can relay it to the owner.
You must protect your email address, stay anonymous at first and always be secure from spammers by making membership in Craigslist. This way your email address is not visible at the first level of inquiring.
Step 11 – After choosing the item, you should agree on the selling price. Owners and sellers often fear tricks by buyers and hence, they accept only cash. Be ready to pay cash for your selected motorcycle. Do not forget to agree on when and where to pick up your motorcycle. Most sellers often do not guarantee the item listed on sale, that is why you should carefully examine the item you are about to purchase through Craigslist.
