Barter deal turns sour for disabled Buckingham woman

BUCKINGHAM, Fla. — An agreement on an exchange of grass-cutting services for a motorcycle went awry when the motorcycle disappeared but the grass kept growing.

A woman with multiple sclerosis traded a bike she couldn’t use anymore to a man who agreed to mow her lawn, but she says the man took her bike without holding up his end of the deal.

The woman said they had a handshake deal and didn’t put anything in writing.
