    edit: RECOVERED RACE BIKE

    The van containing my race bike just got broken into, and my bike stolen. It's a stock tt500 frame with a quick change rear wheel, upside-down '79 YZ400 swingarm, Kawasaki mag front wheel, Grimeca brake and a dented aluminum fuel tank. I believe the van was parked somewhere in the Bronx, I'll update that as I get more info. Pics below. Any info, please get in touch with me (Scott) directly at 917. 595 0541.

    If you have renters insurance you may be able to file a claim, hitch might be that it is a complete bike. might be worth looking into.

    Thanks, Geeto. I wondered the same thing about renter's insurance, unfortunately I don't have any so it doesn't matter. I'm not feeling too optimistic about getting it back, but wanted to put some photos out there anyway. Best case is I'll have a story similar to Tex's race bike recovery, but more likely I'm done for the season.

    search ebay and cl for the next six months. Chances are the people that stole the van wanted the van, not the bike inside and may try to offload it or part it out. I would say why not post a pic on CL and offer a reward (I have $200 I could add to the pot).

    was this wingnut's van?
