My deepest sympathies Didier. I don't suspect the perps hopped on this, started it, and spun off as it's a pretty distinctive thing to be seen driving around on.

I hope they catch the jerks and give them the business end of a flame thrower.

That Sucks...I'm not sure of that this is true but I heard from a German friend that it broke down and somewhere in between trying to retrieve it was stolen. He or they had to load it up so there had to be some witnesses...if that story is true. Of course it is always nice to hear from the owner on what took place.

On no. That is horrible. I hope you get it back! All the work you must have done to restore that beauty. People suck.

Hope you get it back but it is probably crated and shipped to its new country.

Stripped for parts is what happens to many rare things. I think riding it around would be risky.
That happened to many bikes in my day. Also other types of vehicles.
Sounds like it was taken by opportunity and not planned ahead.
Too bad.
