Exclamation Classic and Custom, bikes impounded by police

Further to my question have Classic and Custom in Derbyshire have gone bust or stopped trading, I was speaking today to the owner of a Harley custom who'd just got his bike back from the police. He told me that around 300 vehicles had been impounded that were at Classic and Custom many of which were customer bikes, some of whom have been told their bikes are built using stolen parts and they wont be getting them back. I wouldnt normally post something like this, as it could be all gossip and a storm in a teacup, but I got the full story from one of their customers who feels lucky to have got his bike back, albeit with work not done after waiting 4 years and with parts missing. Here it is, missing bars, controls, exhaust system, the police told him he may get the back eventually, maybe in 18 months time, if they are ever found.

Not sure about the current state of play re trading but he is luckier than me - still waiting to hear from the police re outcome of my build parts - was told a month then will be a bit longer due to the amount of work/bikes involved

Have spoken(a while back) with someone from the shop and they confirmed to me that the police had been in and raided them and taken away a lot of stuff including mine - apparently as part of a nationwide operation - now it all needs to be gone through to confirm ownership of parts and then returned to owner -
