i'd ask for serial number proof imho, shame someones had their bike stolen but like you say, bought in good faith. if his bike was insured then hes been payed out so i'd rek there yours fair n square
Your going to ask the met for proof
I think they could do you for receiving stolen goods,though not sure exactly on that law,wheres chopper when you need him?.
I think the bottom line is you will have to return them but email the original owner and find out if the insurance has paid out.If this is the case then its the insurance company that now owns them not the original owner.Youll have to explain to them the issue
could make it clear to the insurance that youre not happy and will fight them for the ownership,might find theyre unwilling to go to court as it involves costs
Tricky one indeed.I hope this is ok for you,a real shame if you have to lose out or pay more for them
Do you have a link to the seller?
