    Dont get too paranoid about this i have bought many bikes from Thai importers who bought the bike at the Auctions in Japan,yes a few stolen bikes come here , most end up as spares or rentals in Phuket or Pattaya (rentals are rarely registered and police get payoffs., the shops get inspected by cops from japan regularly.

    many stolen jap bikes and cars end up in the UK too. My Ducati and last 3 Harleys and CB1300 and Buell all came from auctions in Japan all have been inspected and Xrayed all are Kosher.

    Hi, Friends,

    Once again, I have nothing else to say thatn to agree with Jerry.

    If any doubt XRay critical places on the bike and you will find if there is something then Inspector Clouzot will play...

    Reliable shops, reliable bikes, no surprise, or very few...

    For bikes, I think that e-bay is more poluted than Thailand.....

    On top I won't be surprise to find an organised network of Japanese "stolen" bikes which are sell then after insurance pay back, old as the World...
