    I'm on a course at the moment so I've been fairly busy.

    I'm back in the Unit for 2 days though so I should be able to slide up towards the bike sheds and grab a pic or 2.

    I doubt it. I don't think its possible to own an unregistered vehicle.
    I also doubt there were any that retired without holy pistons.

    "ex" bikes are auctioned after public notices in differing media sources

    ..you can usually get these items for a song like the ex-Cav Deauvilles, I wouldnt fancy the Garda Bikes though, far higher milage and some do be in less than graceful states..

    ..the new Deauvilles are indeed green but i heard they were delivered in the wrong colour and where being returned or sent off for respray??

    The XS 400 and XS500 were all sold for scrap and chopped up a couple of years ago none were ever sold.

    Me too. A great ole Bike, and the Army ones have never been driven hard. Good ole MPs doin speed traps to catch the Brugha Bikers. My Bike test was possibly the most tedious drive ever. Most bikes hit 50mph in first gear!

    Mate of mine in the Traffic Corps used to use one. He loved it. Be nice to have one for myself if the Amb service ever roll them out across the country like they were supposed to years ago!

    Any idea what kind of shillings a 5 or 6 year old one would set you back these days??

    The Army ones should be selling for about 2500.
    You'd pick up a decent one on the civvy market for not less than 6k. People just don't part with them until they are well past it.
    Much lighter to drive than you would expect from a 650cc tourer. Feels more like a 250, but a fantastic all rounder.
    The Garda ones, when they are sold, are knackered. Most have serious subframe damage, due to the lollipop and tail strobes.
    I deff saw a HSE deauville photod in Ireland somewhere.
