Hi, Papabo, I see you're a new member, so a belated welcome to you to the TT Forum!

I'm afraid I can't help you at all on the charging problems -- your skill level is way above my noobie status. But how does this buying impounded bikes work? If they were stolen, can't the police eventually trace the owner down using VIN and registration or insurance? TIA, and again, welcome!
