Thai Man Ignored At Dealership for Looking Poor, Pays For a New Harley-Davidson With $17,000 Cash

This is a classic lesson of how sales agents should never judge their customers by what they wear.

An elderly man from Thailand named Lung Decha was hopping from one shop to another with one mission in mind: to get a motorcycle.

However, because he was shabbily dressed in an oversized t-shirt, dirty pants, and slippers, most of the salespeople in the shops he went to ignored him. Eventually, the Lung found a dealership where he was treated properly like a customer.

According to Sanook, Lung looked around the shop and decided what he wanted to get in just ten minutes.

He chose a Harley-Davidson motorcycle and paid more than $17,000 for it — in cash.

AsiaOne reported that the partially retired mechanic worked hard all his life and decided to use his hard earned money on his dream bike.

Photos of Lung with his new Harley-Davidson went viral on social media with many happy that despite how society views him, he still achieved a life-long dream.
