    Last night, four Motorcycle Cannonball bikes and their support truck and

    Davidson JD, (Number 76) 1931 Harley Davidson VL, (Number 99) 1928 Harley
    Davidson JD. The truck is a dark grey 2001 Ford F250 with Motorcycle
    Cannonball logos on the front doors, and the trailer is a 16 foot enclosed
    grey trailer with 4 windows and a large Motorcycle Cannonball logo on the
    rear door.

    License Plate numbers are as follows:

    It really stinks to think anyone would do such a thing. I can only hope and pray the dirtbags are caught.
  3. No good thieving son-sa-bitches! God, I hate thieves! Best of luck recovering the pieces of history!

    They recovered them as they were being loaded for export:
    Update 9/24/14: The bikes, trailer and truck have now been found!

    ALL FOUR MOTORCYCLES RECOVERED. Spare parts are gone, spare engines gone, and some small things stripped off. Appears that the trailer was located in the Port of Tacoma, ready to be shipped overseas. THANK YOU to all for helping spread the word

    According to the Tacoma newspaper, someone spotted the trailer in an alley behind a brewery and recognized it from a Facebook post. He looked through the window and saw the bikes and alerted the authorities. Hats off to that fella for being on the ball.

    Thats good news. Even though some things are gone at least the bikes themselves (and truck& trailer) are recovered. Even though I'm from about 30 miles north of Tacoma I feel ashamed that this kind of thing happened to those guys "in my hood". But I'm also proud that there were a lot of good people on the lookout!
  7. sure feels good to have something end in other than total loss never to be seen again. Thanks to all involved.

    Looks like 4 of 5 have been found, but the '28 Harley JD is still missing....

    My Wife and I are member of the Doof Clenas Motorcycle club, (look it up and check it out.... If you ain't quite right, you'll fit right in..........) and I just lifted the entire initial post, and put it on to Our forum so it will get worldwide distribution.
    We have members in most states of the continental US, and we are connected on just about every social media that there is, so this will have a reach of at LEAST 1,000 people, or more.
