I think you are being generous for a police recovered bare hull and trailer. I doubt he'll get the chance to inspect it properly, there is no warranty, they want rid of it and unless they are actively marketing it are not really interested in max value as min effort. If he sees the engine running I'd be staggered never mind them having the patience to let a random mechanic attach a PC for a printout.

My brother works for the Police so I guess I'm getting a little more access to this than would normally be afforded.

If I decide to buy this it will be following a run up and check over of the engine. More economical to play with than my current outfit so would then put that up for sale. The problem is that I'm just having a total refurb on that and I'm not sure I could let it go lol

What it is worth and what he pays for it is something completely different.

If the tubes hold air with no patches, trailer is okay and all those electronics work then 5k is ball park of what it is worth IMO....certainly no more than that i'd think.
