You wanna give us your VIN so we can keep an eye out for it? After all, it's already gone so publishing your VIN globally on Speedzilla isn't gonna result in anything worse than has already happened.

Hi, sorry for refreshing so old topic, but it looks that this bike is now in Poland. Is this your bike Ross ?. VIN in below auction seems to be the same. Current owner buy it in 2013, as a police recovery in the USA. As you could see, current mileage is about 7.300 (11800 km), now it have white VTR paintwork.
I'm looking for SP-1 or SP-2, and this one looks quite good, thats why i would like to know something more about it...
Thank you in advance.

The ad states the seller is the first owner in this country and bike was purchased from police auction. Wow.

I was speaking with the seller about this bike, he told me that originally it was standard RVT paintwork. He confirm that he buy it from police auction in 2013, but with a plenty of scratches, and broken fairings - that's why he change tank and all fairings with used OEM. I dont think that this bike could be illegal, because seller show VIN in public auction ( btw in one of the biggest Polish auction website), and also inform about police auction... I wanted to visit this guy, and take a look on this bike, and eventually buy it, but he sold it day before my phone call...

Ok, again sorry for resurrecting old thread, but it looks like JH2SC45035M500015 is now in my workshop in Ireland! bought it two weeks ago form a local Bike dealer with all correct paperwork supplied. One previous polish owner since registered in Ireland. White VTR fairing and low level sato carbon cans.

Chequered history indeed, very disappointed to hear that it was stolen from previous owner in the US.

There is no such thing as "correct paperwork" for a non recovered stolen vehicle. It should be taken from you and you lose one hundred percent of your money.

That's a lot of bravado advertising online you are in possession of stolen property.

Hello there RxRC,

Nine hours ago I was looking for information on decoding Honda Vin numbers, quite by chance I punched the bike's Vin into google and found this thread.
I was shocked to read about the bike's possible chequered past, and decided to leave the post so as to shed some light on the bike's timeline.

I respectfully think your post is unfair to me in its tone and assertions, what makes you accuse me of Bravado, when you have never met nor spoken to me? why have you put yourself forward as the moral judge & jury in this post and cast your assertions as to what should happen so quickly, when I myself have only found this post a few hours ago.

The Bike does in fact have the correct Irish paperwork associated with it, this is a fact that I can not change.
I am not morally happy that apparently 5 years ago the original owner had his bike stolen, I do not no how the bike made its way through multiple countries and owners, but how do you think I am complicit in this?

When I lose one hundred percent of my money where should i lose it to? perhaps you should decide.
All I ask is that you take a second to think about how I and indeed the previous owners who may also have being oblivious to the bike history feel about this, and save the righteous moral judgement for the thieves.

I hope you can see my reply as a genuine discussion to reflect how easily one can find themselves in a similar situation, perhaps if we all forensically examined every item we purchased second hand we too might be in for a surprise.

yours respectfully

Dinny

Well, this is very interesting mostly due to the logistics.

If a vehicle is stolen and the owner has insurance he is reimbursed his loss minus any deductible. If the vehicle has been recovered then the insurance company has a chance to at least recover a portion of their loss by auctioning it off or selling it back to the original owner. If the rightful owner (either original owner or insurance) has never been compensated then what is stopping them from legally and rightfully taking their property back?

In this country, you would lose your money to the whomever you purchased the stolen goods from. That party would be prosecuted for selling stolen property which in this case would be a felony.

I can't believe this has to be explained to some one. In what country is it legal to sell or receive stolen goods? Again, if this motorcycle has been recovered at some point, auctioned off by the insurance company, then is no problem. But nobody has said this has happened.

If it was legit sold at a Police auction then it very well could have been that the Insurance company released it.

BUT it is very well known that lots of stolen bikes end up with "police auction" paper work that has been forged and over seas.

Can you post a pic of the bike as it sits. If this had happened to a bike i owned I'd like to see what it looks like now.

RxRC I agree with the guy that your response was pretty shitty. If the guy thought it wasn't legit why would he say something to someone 5 years later and from all the way across the Globe. Should look up state side VIN fraud that's been happening and honest people are losing considerable chunks of money on cars they thought they purchased legally.

FYI you already stated how this potentially went down. IF the police auction paperwork wasn't forged originally. Tracing that back will be near impossible. and who is re-imbursing the owners when the import office most likely cleared the paperwork as legit.

If the owner was paid an insurance check he rightfully has zero claim upon recovery UNLESS the insurance company decides to offer it to him(most do) but they aren't required to notify upon recovery.
