Maxton Rollerskate

Lyn sent us in a few photos of the production molds to the Maxton Rollerskate. He said that he purchased the molds from a sheep herder in Colorado. Lyn then sold them to someone about a year ago, and the person has still never came to get them. They are still in his possession.

Looks like a lot of fun if you ask me.

    You know whats weird…this isn’t the first time I have heard of sold molds never being picked up….it’s a different twist on buying a project that never gets touched.

    This is a wonerful looking car, I recall them from years back,
    Now someone like FG Mike could lay up a body like this dirt cheap, perhaps Lyn could resale the molds and if the other buyers ever pops up just offere a refund…just a thought.

    But what does a seller do if the goods are never picked up????

      Thats a good question on the ownership. Unless there is some kind of pickup deadline I would imagine he’s stuck. Popping a few bodies to cover storage seems fair.

        thought i would type in maxton rollerskate on bing and see what comes up. i see the photos i put on the maxton page, are still there. i still have the molds, settin right where they were. the buyer was going to pop a body out of the mold and send it to me, per our agreement, when he got into production. never heard from him again. ive had a couple people wanting to buy the molds, but iam going to set on them for now, just in case i hear from the origional buyer. iam not the kind of guy to screw somebody over. ive been screwed by quite a few, over the years, so i know what its like… ill offer him his money back and keep them, if he decided against doing anything with them. i still want to build one. wish i could find an origional frame. i think i read somewhere, that somebody in the club, has one… if not, ill use a kia sportage frame. i also have an all aluminum bmw v12 with electronic 4 speed automatic. i had plans, but medical issues, put the brakes on things for a while. anyway, use your emagination as to what it would be like,,,, too much fun…. lyn

    Well after a year I would imagine it could be considered abandoned property. If there was no agreement that it would be stored that is.

      Yes, seems to me that a seller should not be “stuck” I know I wouldn’t be, I would do my best to contact the buyer and if so set a “dead line” if I could not reach them I would offer the thing for sale and “if” that first buyer ever popped back up I would be cool enough to offer what they paid me back….But in my case I can’t and wouldn’t “store” things.
      Space is one big reason I don’t have more toys.
