Tank - 6 Wheeled APC
Ok, it's not a bicycle, but there was a fair bit of interest on here so I thought it was worth a punt. If this breaks forum rules please feel free to delete.
The SPACE HIJACKERS G20 Tank!
(6 wheeled, 8.5 tonne Saracen Armoured Personnel Carrier)
The Space Hijackers are selling our tank in order to focus on other projects. Hitting the international press and featuring on more than one television news item, this is a vehicle like no other. It’s a fully legal, armoured battle limo capable of carrying 11 people on the mission of your choice. And it's the most fun thing we've ever driven.
Spending most of its life in a British Army base in Belgium, FREDom (as we’ve named him) was decommissioned and eventually found its way into our hands. We registered the vehicle and made it road worthy – much to the Metropolitan Police's disbelief!
A tank in the hands of the "laughing cavaliers of anti-capitalism” was always going to cause a stir. We used our tank to expose an arms fair, defend Hackney against an Olympic onslaught, and spoof the policing of the April G20 protests in London.
FREDom’s last outing culminated in the Police taking possession of our vehicle after arresting all 11 people inside. After much public outrage, the case was dropped, and FREDom returned to his rightful owners. The Police managed to crash our tank into a riot van on the way to the pound. [!!!] So he received a knock to the wing and headlamp and needs some repair to make him road worthy. The riot van was a write off. Poetic ouch.
Want it? Ok. Some things you need to do once you own it:
Front left-hand-side wing bent, headlight glass needs replacing, side-light wiring needs tweaking. As with all of these vehicles, you need to charge the accumulators [these run the hydraulics and can be charged with any inert gas. Then just top up the brake fluid, engine oil and water. Should you need any help, we can put you in contact with people who know about this sort of thing.
Aside from the police damage mentioned above, this is in great condition. The engine runs smoothly (although noisily) and starts first time.
The vehicle is currently located in South London. Buyer must collect (we have contacts for truck hire)

I don't get it. If the police crashed it whilst they were driving it to the pound would the police insurance not have to cover any repairs?
