There's a girl in Cincinnati ... and she had a PK50 that was stolen about 6 months ago.
So, i notice a thread today on a columbus forum that one of the mechanics who had previously worked on it recognized a thread on the BBS where a guy was asking for help with PK50 floor rails. And the guy is out of Kentucky. Now, remember, there's very few PK's in the whole country ... so a guy with the same bike turning up not far from the scene of the crime seems highly suspicious.
Anyways, Josh ( previous mechanic ) verified that the bike INDEED was the one stolen. The new owner posted "before" shots that allowed Josh to recognize it as the stolen bike. I don't know that they've contacted the poor guy that bought it off of the hood rat that stole the thing, but he's going to lose the money and time he's got into that project once the police seize it and give it back to Shannon.
( ignore, for this story, the fact it's a 50cc bike, where there is no title and that the guy really couldn't run the VIN # against state records to see if the vehicle was stolen )
Remember, having a clear title in your hand is a really crucial thing to have before starting work on your project.
