Well, these bikes are being sold one at a time with other assumed stolen bikes & fishing gear on eBay.

The police cannot get the information off eBay and are now dropping it.

Who says crime doesnt pay?

a) Would you post links... I can't see them.
b) Surely, one easy way to get the seller's details would be to bid on an item and win?
c) I'm sure I've read an anecdote (maybe on here?) of a chap driving some way with a few mates to collect his stuff from a bad ebayer.
d) Would the police not do something if your mate irritates them sufficiently?
e) I though there was an ebay procedure for one user to obtain another user's contact details, provided you have a good reason for needing them.

a) They have been pulled
b) Yes, however when you get the details, the seller gets your details.
c) The seller wouldnt meet, he would only insist on sending the bikes by a courier
d) He has spoken to them daily and the Police are as frustrated with their own depts and eBay
e) The Police are going through this, however it takes a minimum of 4 weeks.
