Lost & Found: Cop Bikes

Who would'a thunk? Walked into the welding shop at my local community college a few weeks ago and there sits two slightly used BMW police bikes. I felt rather dumb founded by the simple fact that it never registered in my mind to check out police auctions for used vehicles that are for sale for whatever reason and then clean them up for resale at a profit. Guessing someone picked them up for cheap as most of the electronics were picked clean as they can be sold easily on ebay.

But for the DIY guy, these bikes are perfect for stripping down and making into a great cruiser with a few simple add on's and cleaning up. Each had less than 30k miles and looked to be in great shape. Next auction, here I come!
