Chop shop motorcycles to be auctioned by Pittsburgh company


A Pittsburgh-area auctioneer will have an auction Saturday to sell off motorcycles and parts recovered in a chop shop case.

On the block at Constantine & Pletcher will be eight complete Harley-Davidson motorcycles, 14 disassembled bikes and hundreds of PG&A items.

The bikes were stolen from dealers and rallies across the country some time between the early 1990s and 2003, and recovered in a federal bust of a Butler County chop shop. Authorities arrested a husband and wife team in the case, according to the Tribune.

Most of the victims collected insurance settlements long ago, but some of the proceeds from the government-sponsored auction will be used to compensate victims who were underinsured.

The gallery is open to preview the Harley sale from noon to 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, followed by the sale. All previews and sales are at 1306 Pittsburgh St., Cheswick. Details and photos are available on the auctioneers’ website or by calling (724) 275-7190.
