The B.C. government says it’s looking at whether the province could sell its two-wheeled heritage and heritage-themed vehicles for less than the current price tag of $1.3 million.
The announcement came in response to an appeal by the Canadian Heritage Council for a sale of heritage vehicles, which were originally sold for $6.2 million in 2009.
The council has since raised $2.5 million to buy and refurbish the vehicles.
The BC government says the cars and trucks will remain at the B.CA.
M.C.’s B.A.T. facility in Surrey.
The vehicles will be sold through an auction in late May.
The BCTC says the sale is not an offer for sale.
The government’s announcement comes just weeks after a $4.4-million sale of two-wheeler vehicles was completed by a consortium of companies including BCTF, BCT, KTM and Suzuki.
That sale was announced in July, and was followed by a $3.2-million, five-year extension of the program to 2022.
More to come.
