When he went down to ID the bike, he was surprised everything he had bought for it had actually remained on the bike for all these years.

Problem was, even though he ID'd the bike as his. The cops told him he couldn't take the WHOLE bike with him since there was NO WAY to actually prove that the frame was actually his. So they only allowed him to take the engine with him and thats it.

sucks...we ended up selling the engine on FH or craigslist. The guy who bought it looked shaddy.

I remember walking away after we sold the engine talking to my friend about how we probably recycled the engine back into the stolen bike black market....gay
They should be able to apply acid the the neck to check the VIN.
