By the way if you fellas think i am looking to pay too much by all means say.

Do the Ashby's haggle or will I just embarress myself.

second hand ninja is no longer on e bay so come on who bought it?
Posted by ALEXDH (ALEXDH), 26 October 2003
it wasn't me , i tell you that much.

Started to get cold feet anyway seemed a big buy with no warranty. Especially as i have not even touched a carpet machine yet let alone tried to mend a lemon. Embarassed Embarassed
How much should the person have paid for this , be dead interested to know. Huh

Of course if one of you experienced chaps has bourght it given it a good looking over to sell on , i would be interested. am i a hipocrite ? Roll Eyes,money does that to me sometimes. Grin

All the best

I e mailed him and this is what the reply was

" I have had the machine for 6 months after buying it from ashbys direct as a reconditioned, which means it was serviced before I receive it.

I would be looking for 700.00 cash to close the auction.

I am receiving a lot of interest on this machine, not trying to twist arms etc.. but just wanted to let you know! "
