usually if a car gets impounded over here for a section 165 meaning no licence no insurance which is what the guy at the pound told me my bike had, it is £150 to get it released, but you have to show licence and insurance of which i had none.
but i do like biknut's theory of the bike not being self propelled on which i agree on that one, so id say yes it is truly bicycle....
