"2009 Kawasaki Ninja Motorcycle; VIN JKBZXNC139A014220; UNKNOWN MILEAGE; Gas Engine; Was running when seized; No other operational information supplied by Hays County; Location 3"

So... that's why it was seized?

I thought the same thing, maybe find some new fairings and de-thugify the thing.

I've had the chance to work at a couple auto auction places; most places won't deal with bikes at all and even if they do bikes are rare. Most auction places also only deal to licensed dealers (not the gen public). If you can find a bike at an auction public sale, it's a gamble. Guaranteed it's sat for a while, with dry-rot and weathering issues (tires will be bad!). Beyond that conditions range from lightly used to scrap metal.

I'd hesitate to buy from an auction just as a matter of principle; the chances of someone just trying to sell their bike that way simply doesn't happen. Most likely you'll find:

-bikes seized by police from criminal activity
-abandoned vehicles (read: stolen)
-flat-out stolen
-repo's from "title-loan" places: by far the most common, and will def fall into the "ready for the scrapyard" category.

Buying from auction will get you a steal of a price, but you may need to go as a "guest" of a dealer - and do be prepared for a serious "project" bike. Try going to Houston Auto Auction (45 N. , near Little York); they had a couple GSX-R 1000's last time I was there (last November).
