So the story thickens.... Firstly NEVER get insurance from Lexham... they are S"*t. They don't even deal with the claim themselves, they palm you off to a company called Plantec Assist for the valuations and replacements etc and to another company (cant remember the name) for any policy queries etc.
Secondly, they are saying that i MUST take the bike back in its current condition and as it is worth £1,400, they are taking it off the value of the bike. They still havent agreed a higher figure and have just today taken the hire bike back as they have issued a check for the disputed figure of £5,030 MINUS the £1,400 "Scrap value" of the bike.
They have also "very kindly" offered to scrap the bike for me but they will only give me £1,000 for it as they have to "reclaim their costs".
So, in light of this, if anyone wants any spare parts, let me know!! pretty much all of it is in good/great condition apart from the front mudguard, left hand side fairing and the frame!
All offers considered. or.... if anyone wants the whole thing for £1,400, its yours!!! I'll post pictures of teh damage so you can all see when I can find my ruddy password for the Gallery........
