2017 Harley Davidson 883 Trike

Vendor supplied images

Highlights

  • Only 10,243 miles from new
  • Custom built by Trike Design in South Wales
  • Based upon Harley Davidson’s 883 V-twin cruiser
  • MOT valid until November 2024
  • Garaged since purchase in September 2022

The Appeal

The Harley Davidson 883 is effectively the best of Harley's modern entry-level machines - a low-slung, easy-to-handle and capable mount that's ripe for customisation, while still carrying plenty of authentic biking character. This particular example is a prime one - having been custom-built by Trike Design of South Wales into a stunning, easy-going trike.

The result really stands out - aided by its striking metallic blue exterior and low mileage of just 10,243 miles. Purchased as an 80th birthday present from Car & Classic in 2022, this marvellous trike has been kept garaged throughout its current ownership and appears very well kept through and through.

With its famous Harley exhaust note still burbling away, this trike offers an authentic Harley Davidson experience that's distinct enough to turn heads at any local meet or bike show.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
