Headlamp cowling with voltmeter

Post by Wirralman » Sun May 24, 2020 11:06 pm

I noticed an item listed on ebay, an MT350 headlamp cowling, with a fitted voltmeter

I just wondered if anyone has had a bike with that modification stolen ?

I asked the guy on ebay with front frame for sale if he had a V5 or could give me the frame number so I could check its not stolen.
He said its not stolen but would not give a number. He said he may have one with army disposal forms and would have a look. :roll:

You got a warrant?

Are you going to check out every seller on fleabay in case they're all selling stolen goods?

Very wise to take due diligence. There would be no point in paying for a frame , investing time and money working on it then find when you tried to register it that it was stolen. Not only could it be confiscated, you could be charged with handling stolen goods.

Only if you know they're stolen.

Or believe they may be stolen......and evidence of unreasonably low price or erasure of identification marks may support a case that you had that belief. It’s a complicated area.

I've bought a 'stolen' car, a fella on here bought a 'stolen' CCM, I know a couple of others who've been caught out.

Anyone buying obviously erased identification marks is either a fool or a scrote so deserves whatever they get.

I've never sold anything for more than I've paid for it (on here) as I believe in sharing my good fortune around, I get a result, you get a result, everyone wins.

I don't think decent people (not me obviously) have anything to worry about.

I've never sold anything for more than I've brought it for, that why I'm still working 60 hours a week. :cry: :cry: :cry:
