I signed a finance agreement for a motorcycle for my son on

Customer Question

I signed a finance agreement for a motorcycle for my son on 21/07/14 just before closing time. I called the cycle shop first thing the following day to say i had changed my mind and wanted to cancel. He then rang my son to see if he could get the finance for the bike but he could not afford the monthly fees (49%apr). The guy at the shop knew i wanted out but has still processed the finance. So now i have finance for a bike i do not have, the bike my son had previously now has no finance because the guy at the shop paid it off. He is being very unhelpful and dragging his feet. Where do i stand, i have a £5000 plus finance for a motorcycle i do not have

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.

Alex Watts :

Is the bike still ordered or has that been cancelled please?


As far as i am aware the bike was cancelled as we never collected. He has said today that he has contacted the finance company yesterday and the finance will be reverted back to the old bike and the new finance will be cancelled. I do not trust this guy as he should never have processed it in the first place. The date on the finance agreement that came in the post was dated the day after i rang the shop and cancelled and after he tried to get my son to take the finance on (against my wishes as i told him i did not think my son was ready for a bigger motorcycle).

Alex Watts : Cant you cancel the finance ?

I was told by the salesperson that he would cancel the finance but he had to speak with his manager as he had never come across this before. I spoke with him on tues and he said he had dealt with it and it would be reversed. On contacting the finance company today - they have had no contact from the dealer at all.

Alex Watts :

So they said it would be reversed and they have failed to do so, is that the position?


As far as i am aware. I have emailed the general manager to look into this and am awaiting a response from him. I will let you know as soon as i know something.
