Abandoned possibly stolen Scooter from Spain in England -SUZUKI BURGMAN 125

Postby pinkfrog » Tue Dec 04, 2018 8:44 am

Hello

I saw a bike for sale on ebay
I spoke to the current owner/ seller of the scooter and he told me that the scooter

" had been abandoned in Enfield London .It was then recovered by enfield councils environmental services and then sent to a scrap yard and sold to Him"

i am trying to find out if the bike was actually stolen and if the owner has been paid out by his insurance
it had Spanish number plates on it but they were removed some time before the ebay auction

its a silver Suzuki Burgman 125 ,its a 2007 model

I have checked to see if its stolen using the NICB .org website using its its VIN number but no data is recorded so it seems it is not stolen.
and I also paid for a check on uk.vin-info and it came up clear

are there any Spanish databases I can check or any facebook groups any advice would be great

Trafico in Spain should be able to confirm if you give them the Vin number.

I tried looking on this website too but could not find the VIN entry section

and also I got a Spanish report from this website

If you enter the VIN number into the English version of the website https://uk.vin-info.com you will get the results in English.
You need to pay to see the full report.

The cost is very small. I would get the report and put it into google translate.

Hello as mentioned in my original post I have already paid for and got the report from https://uk.vin-info.com/
I was under the impression https://uk.vin-info.com/ would check all the countries In Europe .But in the report I paid for it made no expressed mention of checking ANY Spanish stolen databases.
.
https://uk.vin-info.com/ checked the following stolen databases

Germany
Czech police
Netherlands
Sweden
Romanian police
Poland
Germany
European internet registry
Norway
Slovenian
internet registry of stolen vehicles


okay I will try and figure it out myself in the meantime if anyone knows the Spanish owner of this bike let me know and I will try and help him
:D

Google translate is brilliant if you can be bothered.

I agree. I use it a lot. I needed to write an email in German this morning. Just for a check I translated the German to Spanish and then from Spanish to Vietnamese and then back to English. It was word perfect!
