Couldn't you tell I was a bit underwhelmed by that one we went to a bit back, J4tH?

At this stage I might be a bit too catatonic to care much at the committee meeting. Planning another Toodyay 200 Friday evening. Hopefully not as drawn out as the last a couple of weeks back.

Yikes, the last few police auctions I have been to have not been worth it bicycle wise - as people have said there is a great deal of over-capitalization on POS bikes!

Another auction this Saturday 14th March in Welshpool. Over a hundred bikes, half of them BSOs and some darn ugly, but there are some good road and MTBs there plus a Giant Halfway folder and a Specialized electric assist bike with wire basket. Lot 52, I didn't know that Ripcurl was a bike brand.

Or you could just go do something with Bikeweek?

The bikes were going for craaaazy amounts... Huffy's in very poor condition, cheap at nearly $200... Diamondbacks for 300 to 500. Some cheap bikes ( $80-ish ), but many were in poor condition - you could do a run around on council cleanup days and pick up for free most of what was going at the auction for around $200.

Actually, I think you will probably find most of what was sold today being included in the next council cleanup.....

:lol: An auctioneer friend is always amazed at the frenzy some people get caught up in at auctions, especially on weekend auctions

Another one on this Saturday. Item 74 is a carbon BMC roadbike, 75 is a Specialized Comp Roubaix, 83 is a Giant TCR Advanced so there are some high end bikes there. Item 99 I don't know what to say

Another Perth auction this Saturday 17th October and for once they've posted the details up early. Item 54 in the catalogue is a rickshaw, anyone want to become self-employed in the cycle industry? Not much else there, the usual BSO's, some separate bike wheels, a Merida racer that was probably locked up once by its front wheel only.

PINARELLO! Someone tell missinglink.
There's a white trimmed Pinarello FP2 up for auction this Saturday 02 April. Lot 24, which unfortunately makes it the first bike to come up for bidding too.
Image
There's a Dahon (lot 46) folder, an electric Sunrunner folder (lot 119) but the rest of these 120 bikes are mainly humdrum MTBs and hybrids.

Out of curiosity are these highest bidder wins or do they have a reserve ?

Is there bargains to be had or is it fairly competitive and you end up paying second hand market prices ?

Highest bidder wins, no reserves. And you might be paying a premium second hand price as well, as people tend to inflate the prices to try and drain "competition" of their money

Being a Saturday you will get a lot of people that don't go to auctions regulary and get caught up in biding (have seen bids above retail :roll: ). As long as you set a limit and the lot is not a hot favourite you can still have a win. And just remember to apply the buyers premium when setting your limit.

If you have nothing on it can be good for a laugh to see what people bid

Young bloke where I work went last year and paid $120 for a bent frame with very worn parts. Threw it in the skip...........

Lot 83 was stolen from the carpark at work. I've let the owner know, he was keen to follow it up!

Lettuce know how your work mate goes with it, Chuck. Would be interested in the retrieval success if the bike has already been unclaimed after whatever period from the Police.
