The no-risk way to sell
Ashley Revell famously gambled everything he owned – including his clothes - on one spin of a roulette wheel. But when it came to selling his Triumph Tiger the 33-year-old Londoner took no risks. He sold on motorcyclenews.com – and the deal was done and dusted at full asking price within three days of his ad going live.

When he got home he went straight out to pass his bike test and buy the Tiger, then spent nine months travelling around Europe on it.
Now he’s selling up again – this time to bet on England winning the World Cup. His gamble – which is being filmed by Sweet productions in Europe and Over The Pond in the US – is due to be screened this summer. If all goes to plan he’ll net £1 million.
“Then I’ll buy myself a new Tiger and I was also thinking about the new Daytona 675, too – I’ve never had a sports bike before,” he said.
Ashley added : “I was surprised the Tiger sold so quickly and very happy with that and the service MCN provides.”
His ad (which you can still see here went live on Thursday (Feb 16). He got two calls on Friday (Feb 17). The first said he wanted the bike but couldn’t see it until Tuesday. The second made another firm commitment – and he’d come to see the bike on Sunday (Feb 19). And sure enough the Sunday buyer arrived, handed over the cash at the full asking price and the deal was done.
Ashley said: “It was good fortune that brought me the bike, so I wanted to pass some of that on. It was well priced – priced to sell.”
