Nice find...just went through all 26 pages (not all bike stuff)! Such a shame to see businesses fail. Looks like they gave it a decent go!

Crazy that you need to factor in nigh on 44% on top of the price you bid and a further 2.5% for card. I may have missed it but where is collection from? I only saw it say from showroom or premises of business but no mention where it is.

Those Dura cabinets...mmmm.

There's potentially some great buys, it'll be interesting to see what it goes for closer to the time.

cheers

Successful m/c shops these days really need enthusiasts with core business support to survive... like the little shop near me, they run a successful trucking business, the shop is for 'fun' to keep the race bikes in...workshop is spotless with all the gear,and Ive never seen a accessory section so well appointed.

It's all rather sad, isn't it?

The auctioneer is in Derby, and the letter stickers have been arranged to spell Derby, so I reckon it's there. Collection by 13/03 (I was looking at the pillar drill :) )

So much stuff there. Difficult to identify all the parts though. Any takers for the football shirt signed by Sven Goran Eriksson? ;)

174 aprilia airblade clear screen, any ideas as to what that may fit or be fitted to?
