The police do have an auction site for seized property, not sure if all forces participate but I know my employers at South Yorkshire do.

One of these sort of things coming up at my work later in the year. Had an early look and there is a Clockwork, Bear Valley, Rockhopper, McRae Kona and some other bits that will cropping up. Likely to go for peanuts so will be filling the garage with frames to move on. Such a shame when people abandon their bikes.

How does this work? it's people put the highest bid for item to win it? and then you pay the Police for your winning item?

I missed it when I realised exactly how far it was (+ it was pissing it down when I woke up). what sort of prices did things go for?
