    Default Stolen Indians Southeastern Ny State

    My friends 2 indians were stolen from his barn in Middletown N.Y. the evening of August 27th 2009 while he was home. This was a targeted theft and well organized. One was a 1948 Chief engine #cdh3146 frame # 3481523, blue in color, painstakingly restored by the owner 20plus years ago, no re-pop. 2nd was a 1953 chief red in color, engine #CS6753. frame number not known but is assumed to be matching according to information provided. Again restored by the owner many years ago. These bikes were not ridden very much at all, and haven't been ridden on the street in at least 3 yrs. Consensus of opinion is that these bikes are destined for overseas, so I and my friend appeal not only to U.S members but also our foreign members to look out for these bikes and maybe alert the local authorities to the serial numbers.

    Sorry to hear about your buddy getting ripped off. I really hate to hear that this thieving crap still goes on. I'd keep my eyes out on e-bay too..... Everybody who reads this should write down the serial #'s and pay attention.

    These bikes have not yet surfaced. I ask our foreign members to be on the lookout as it is believed these are going overseas and should be arriving soon.

    Just curious as to why the authorities think they are likely to go overseas? (easier to fence is probably the likely reason). Also are these bikes likely to be traded as complete bikes or in pieces?

    My heart goes out to your buddy.

    Some of the reasons it is believed these are headed overseas are it will be extremely difficult to unload these in parts or together in this area. as we all know the antique motorcycle group is a small percentage of motorcycle riders and alot of us know each other. This was a targeted theft, not, Oh, gee, theres an indian, lets go steal it. Whoever took these bikes knew what they were, stole them while they were home, and it took a minimum of four people to take them from where they were. Six cities with international shipping docks are 60 min away. They will command a much greater profit overseas. These people are in it for the money, not the bikes.
