Ex Police MP3

Post by Scootypuff snr » Mon Oct 08, 2018 3:43 am

It appears Met Police MP3s are starting to filter onto the market (don't know any other force that runs them?)

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 3293663572

but if a dealer is knocking them out at under 2K (If profit margins are similar to when I traded) I'd expect auction house cost of £600/£1K Inc fees.

Met had over 40 of these & there service routine was spot on,no second hand parts fitted

Think Blackbush? was the biggest emergency service vehicle fleet seller though some used to turn up in the Counties.
I'm going there,but I like it here,wherever it is

£1k worth a punt - but £2k risky as they have done a lot of leg - given the complexity of these MP3's and Piaggio's build quality.

They seem to be using Xmax's now. 300s, I think (from looking at the exhausts - def not 400, as you can spot the exhaust on them from a mile away).

45000 miles the one on the link had. Pretty good going for a Piaggio working hard. Just think there could be some expensive bills hiding away in these especially in the tilt mechanism.

It's a few miles from me. They're down a back alley in an out-of-the-way industrial estate. I'm sure i saw an ad like this a couple of months back. I imagine there'd be a fair few holes in the plastic where they removed the police gear. MOT tomorrow. I might celebrate a pass by going over for a nosey. :)

The MET ones I've see riding around the West End are all electric scooters now, couldn't tell you make/model though
