Five years ago, the Drysdale V8 motorcycle shown in the photo above, was stolen from its owner in Melbourne, Australia. It was chained to another motorcycle, but the chain was cut and only the Drysdale was taken, the other bike was left behind. This wasn’t random, it appears to be a classic “stolen to order” operation.
We wrote about the bike here and it wasn’t long afterwards, it disappeared.
The motorcycle probably left Australia quickly and found its way into an underground collection on another continent. Over these 5 years, the owner may have wanted to show it off to a few friends and associates or, betting no one would recognize it, he may even have taken it on the road somewhere.
Ian, along with the current rightful owner, would really like to find it and they’re hoping a sort of “all points bulletin” might help and that involves you. If you or someone you know might have an idea of its current whereabouts, you can contact me and I’ll forward the info to Ian. All replies are strictly confidential.
It’s truly unfortunate that things like this happen, but maybe, with your help, we can set things right.
