    Whoah Paul, that's a rare request, and a little bit too early for me !

    Do you want those plates now, or are you able to wait until mid-June ? I have Hu A plates, 100% legal and ok for transfer, for my YBR250, which I will sell after my round-china trip this spring, 'cause I'll leave China after that.
    No idea about the current price though : what is it up to nowadays, more than RMB 50,000 ?

    Tell me if you're ready to wait, I'm interested for sure !

    Fred,
    If you selling your YBR250 without plate, how much are you asking for it?
    Can one take the YBR to a different town and register it.

    Dear Paul,

    I doubt you are going to find anyone in this forum who is prepared to part with a legal Shanghai plate. The latest word on the street is that 沪A plates are in such short supply that the price no longer mimics that of car plates, but now exceeds them. This past month the price of a car plate was 64,000 RMB, while that for a bike plate was 68,000 RMB. Not sure about 沪C plates, though these have been going for about 8000 RMB. Bike plates are not unavailable, they just are not being issued by the Vehicle Management Bureau and have not been for years. Worse yet, a bike plate can be transfered to a car, but a car plate cannot be transfered to a bike, so the absolute supply of bike plates shrinks every time a bike plate is bolted to a car. Hence the price premium.

    Most dealers of long service know brokers who can obtain bike plates. Have you tried this option? PM me if you need an introduction.

    Cheers!

    64000-68000 RMB for a plate hate to think what they'll go for in ten years.

    I'm guessing some low life will threaten to kill you just for your plate.

    Obscene, isn't it?

    But a low life thief would not be able to cash in on a stolen plate's value unless he managed to get all your papers and go through a legal transfer process, which requires signatures and chops and fees to release the plate to a new owner. Replacing a stolen plate is a hassle, but costs only a couple hundred rmb.

    cheers
