We will not take into account modifications when valuating your bike. The prices quoted are based on standard factory fitted parts. If you do have the original parts please feel free to fit these back to the bike before your appointment. Any damaged caused from fitting or removing after market parts will reduce the valuation of the bike.


Any of the selected models are eligible for an assessment / valuation by one of our trained technicians and it is at this point we will be able to determine the condition of your bike and any offer we are able to make. If the bike is in a poor state of repair to the extent that we are unable to refurbish the bicycle and re-sell it, in our sole discretion, we may make an offer to purchase the bike for a nominal fee and recycle it on your behalf.
