    Ross's Auction

    In the up coming police auction at Ross's, is a turbo'd GSXR 1000 fitted with BST wheels. Did it use to belong to anyone here?

    I would rather the RSV4, shame at auction everything tends to go for more then market value.

    I want it, there is something incredibly alluring about having the boost rush feeling but on a bike. Doubt I could outbid anyone serious about buying it however.

    Carbon rims too?

    Impounded when caught on a test ride (ie unlicenced vehicle)?
    One owner. Only driven gently on Sundays. Sold to best offer. First to see will buy. Reward offered for safe return. Coming soon to a cinema near you. Available for a limited time only.

    My waterbed broke this morning. Oh, I don't have a waterbed. Bugger.

    I'm going with purchased/built with proceeds of crime, seized that way.
    Could be a 3rd strike hoon offence.

    If you had it impounded from unlicensed vehicle/no drivers license you'd find a way to get it out.

    The problem with Ross's auctions is that because is so popular now specially for the police auctions , you end up paying the market value of the item for an item isn't registered (bike) . People think is cheap but they don't calculate the fees behind the bid

    I had a turbo bike a yamaha xj 650 turbo seca i they went ok but were no thousand they probably only went as hard as a 750, but my friend had a 1978 z1000 with an american turbo running a reasonable amount of boost that was a different thing altogether but lag was a problem.
