yep I fell in to the got my sh—t stolen today... woke up this morning and wham it’s gone.. my trailer badges bikes parts seats you snake it. Guess no march swap for me this year....beware in Oregon Washington are especially. Tubs of parts and bikes were great ne and now into some crack heads hands so if you see antique and vintage parts for sale think of me and let me know I’ll tell you if they are mine.. I got pics. of some..,
Karma. Lol. Well I got some news they got in and it's been looted found a few frames. This was swapmeet stuff not high end junk never ! Thank god I'm smarter than that. The stuff is insured but I really want the trailer back everything else is just stuff....
Sorry to hear about your loss. I've been ripped off big time twice so I'm ready to catch the next thief and put him to rest. I've caught mid night thieves many times trying to rip off things in my work truck but the cops were always to slow to be of any help. So what are the details, was it attached to a vehicle, parked at a hotel or sitting in your driveway?
Thanks it was locked up in the street next to my house. They came in some time after 12pm cut the locks chains and hooked it up and off they went.. must be pros seems trailers are a big thing here. I couldn’t park it on the drive due to it being a slope.. I estimated 7500 in stuff with the trailer. The more I think about it the more I really like to beat some thief ass.. the cops saw it earlier down the street and had some suspicion but it was a hour before I noticed it gone. They saw the vehicle so that helps. Next thing they found a few prewar frames picked up by a scrapper got them back. The rest it gone possibly a Craig’s list sale... I’m looking a when I see the fingerprint bike they are toast. But really it’s all dust now they will change strip and sell it some where. I hate thief’s
Thanks ...Got to be Vancouver side...don’t know how they are gonna dump the bike parts but I’m sure something will surface... claiming is gonna be strange. Some things I’ve had for a long time. We’ll see what happens lol..
I'm sorry to hear that man. There a lot of cabers that watch Craigslist, fb, and eBay like a hawk. It's only a matter of time and I'm sure they will slip up and hopefully by then all your stuff is recovered.
Thanks Tim. I just talked to the neighbor he has a video of the people who took it .. they drove a dark van with a very bad power steering pump.. the van looks to be in the1970’s it must be a v8 model... to me looked to be a Chevy.. well I’ll have to resupply lol.. I usually save stuff and bring it to the swap.. they cleaned it out. You know I kinda had the what if feeling.. and the area was not to bright. When I looked at the vid. I cannot believe it....they took 20 minutes to get that damn thing to hook up and the van was noisy and it dragged before they went to free it up.. why I didn’t hear it or someone close didn’t notice it I don’t know. Anyway I do have a ace in my pocket for cool parts and a few bikes to buy but s—t like this is cutting close to the swap. I don’t think it’s gonna happen ....My little 20” greyhound tanker is out there and who ever gets this in in deep doo doo lost money for them.... this sucks I hate thieves as of the moment all I’ll do is display my Indian at the swap so better be ready to give the prize to me...lol
