Good result John & very lucky it was still in one piece. I hope the Surrey Police are going to prosecute the thieving scumbag who was trying to sell this at Kempton, he should also be named and shamed and banned from future shows and autojumbles.

Not sure that the vendor was the original thief, John. Apparently he had documentation to show his purchase from another party.

But he was in reciept of stolen property and should have done a HPI check on it to see if it was stolen. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

Yes, and funny that he was trying to flog it off at Kempton so soon afterwards

I'm happy. This just leaves it to the Police to tie up the loose ends but can they afford to give it the priority we seem to think it deserves?
Just leaves it for me to say a sincere Thank you to all for keeping an eye out for the bike since I reported its disappearance last June. Recovery is down to my friends in the genuine biking fraternity, especially Josh Gibbons and Aimee Phillips who were manning the DOT Club stand on Saturday.

Brilliant result and can I add a reminder to all that all frame numbers and engine numbers should be recorded, so the eagle-eyed amongst us are able to spot anything that goes missing! Those unfortunates that report their bike missing and add just the reg number are not likely to get a result.

Default Brilliant news indeed

Father and myself were there on Saturday..

I did see two Police officers walking along with Aimee and wondered what was going on... indeed very vigilant of them to notice the stolen bike..

It's made my day to hear you have been reunited with your DOT John
