    You may remember that earlier this year (feb) my much loved '67 bonnie was
    stolen from my garage in Bristol. Something very strange has happened this
    week in that an estate car was dumped less than 10 yards from my garage and
    after being towed away to the pound, was found to contain my bike - stripped
    down & some damage but looks like it's nearly all there, however it now
    belongs to Norwich Union who have instructed 'Bluecycle auctioneers' to sell
    it, does anyone know the procedure to deal with them as they are not
    replying to e-mails and their site seems as clear as mud, can't find the
    auction area or how to put in a bid.
    Pete.

    Stranger than fiction eh! The twighlight zone has nothing on your area.
    Have you tried writing or phoning them?

    still 'together' suggest that whoever the fuckers were that took it they
    were not bikers & knew nothing about bikes totally unrelated parts removed
    and bits that would be the first off in any strip-down left on the frame!

    Just tried to get to their web site and can't even get that now! will keep
    trying though, not really sure about getting it back as I put so much
    work,time & money into getting it right the last time and now have a new
    bike bought with the insurance pay out (yes the garage it a lot more secure
    now ;-) ) But I had the bonnie for 20 years and it was kind of part of me -
    certainly out lasted all the women that I've been out with.

    Pete.

    Bluecycle is a trade only auction.

    www.bluecycle.com appears to be only for the trade. You will have to find a
    salvage trader who is registered with them and get them to bid on your
    behalf.

    union told me to contact them though, knowing that fact and being part of
    the n/u group.
