View Full Version : 6 years ago in May

my nephews motorbike was stolen. He'd got it for his 18th birthday in the February and we believe 2 men went into their back garden and cut the locks off his bike then put it into the back of a van and took it away.

Well would you believe DH and another policeman found some lads riding around on it - no helmets - and the back wheel had been replaced by 2 small wheels making it into a trike!

it had no number plate, was a different colour and had 3 wheels instead of 2 but DH realised when the radio check on the vehicle identification number came back as a bike stolen from their road that it was my nephews!

he can't have it back yet as it's evidence.......

in May it wouldn't have been deleted off the police records i think as it would have been 6 years old by then, how unbelievable is that?!!

and even spookier - his Dad was at the local post office earlier in the day and saw 2 lads pushing this weird looking contraption but he didn't realise it was his sons bike of course, then DS14 friend said to him today that he'd seen 3 lads pushing a strange looking trike around near his house yesterday!

hee hee! it's crazy isn't it!!

he should be able to get it back but it could be a while yet 'til he can as it's evidence.

How unusual is that?! I wonder if it is even worth having back? He can always sell it, eh? Get a bit for it perhaps.
