The new search begins

I finally after so many bs phone calls and text messges and low ball offers have sold my bike to someone who really is going to appreciate it. Now my search for a glee starts. Ive searched the forsale ads here and everyone is way to far away or out of my price range. I am willing to travel a bit but im not going cross country to get one. any other ideas where to look to find one? before any one goes off I live in the allentown area of pennsylvania which is about an hour north of philladelphia for anyone not knowing where allentown is. I have searched craigslist in every town from every state including Pennsylvania, new jersey, newyork, vermont, connecticut, rhode island, massachutes, maryland, virgina, north carolina, west virgina, virgina, delaware, and ohio. then i checked ebay. i dont know where else to look i am a cash buyer with cash in hand and im willing to travel what more could someone ask for. I dont want to do this forever.

Have you checked on the bike dljocky has / had for sale on this site? Was very tempting to me, and I'm very satisfied with my Wee. Was the best glee deal I've seen...

Good luck.

2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.

2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 46K+. Love it!

Are you looking for a new one? Local dealer in Toledo Ohio offer. Glee 2013 for US$6900.00. In fact I got one deal like this. It should show in CycleTrader.
Good Luck!

I think we need to know just what it is your looking for and what you're expecting to pay. If this is one of those deals where you expect them to essentially give you the bike and throw in a bunch of farkles you might be looking a while. If not some of these guys might be able to help.

I had the same issues. Couldn't find anything remotely local in a 2012 or 2013 model. Decided to get a 2013 "leftover" from a dealer. Made me a really good deal and got 0% financing. Plus with a brand new bike you know the history.

Dljockey has someone interested in his already and I have messaged him about it already.. My limit is 6500 and it can be stock.. I found a brand new 12 in orange which is what I want and they want 7k for it.. But after travel and taxes it'll put me 1000-1200 over what I can afford and I've been all over the forsale section many times and every page

Sales are up in Spring, so prices follow suit. If you could wait for Fall you might get a price you like, or just keep looking. Maybe you will get lucky.
