Nebraska man gets back stolen motocycle

3 posts in this topic

This is cool.

A Nebraska man was reunited Wednesday with his now-vintage motorcycle stolen nearly 50 years earlier.

Donald DeVault, 73, laid eyes on his 1953 Triumph Tiger 100 for the first time in 46 years at a trucking company near the airport in Omaha.

His first reaction? To hug the man who brought the bike back to him. His next move was — naturally — to take the motorcycle for a spin in the parking lot.

DeVault learned two weeks ago that California authorities had recovered his motorcycle at the Port of Los Angeles. The bike was about to be shipped to Japan when agents checking the vehicle identification number discovered it had been reported stolen in February 1967.

Why would they want to ship it Japan?

Because it was a rare vintage motorcyle and a rich collecter had purchased it.
