Stolen Motorcycle Returned 46 Years Later
Set to be shipped to Japan, a stolen 1953 Triumph Tiger 100 was recovered by U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the Port of Los Angeles, CA. Here’s the interesting part, it was stolen back in 1967. 46 years later it was found and returned to the owner, who is now in his 70s. The estimated value today is $9,000. If insured at the time, the owner would have been given a check of about $300 for the loss and the insurance company would have received the recovered motorcycle. I wonder how many stolen vehicles are recovered by insurance companies decades later?
