    Bike was stolen last night from my storage unit. Black Trek Mountain Bike with 66cc Slantfire Grubee Skyhawk. Centrifugal clutch, boost bottle, SBP shiftkit, dual brake lever, left gripshift shifter..... the whole nine yards. 150+ hours of work down the tube. I'm livid....

    Thanks Ron. I appreciate the thoughts. Thanks again for your help when I needed it. The only good thing out of this is our insurance will cover most of what was taken..... and now the building management is willing to put a deadbolt on our storage. I think they are afraid of being sued since I had asked over a month ago and nothing had been done. For now I am just trying to dream up a new build for when we are compensated for our losses.
    Kind regards,

    Nothing like locking the gate after the horses get out....(all of the 2.75 HP, no pun intended)

    Hahaha, good one. I think I need to put a lojack system into my next build. That would be pretty sweet.

    My mother runs a storage facility. Here is whats at her place security code gate, resident manger, camera surveillance. These things really detour thieves.

    I'm sure whoever it is who took it won't be able to maintain it. Hopefully they will squeeze the clutch lever instead of the brake lever going full speed towards a dump truck. Unfortunately, our storage is across the hall in our apartment complex. Not a single camera in sight.... it was a thief's dream come true. Maybe an unlabeled bright red self destruct button rigged to the gas tank. Instant Karma. lol

    Would your home owners/renters ins cover it?

    Good question, I am actually concerned that it may not be covered. The woman I spoke to said it may be considered a vehicle and might not be covered..... I'm currently itemizing all the items piece by piece along with everything else that was taken. Tools, snowboard, etc.... I'll keep you posted on what happens. From what I have been reading and hearing it varies state by state.

    oh, and it was a 48cc. Not sure why I thought I had the 66cc. In MD anything under 50cc is legal and does not need to be registered. I was considered the 66cc when I got it, but didn't want to have to register it.

    Just got a call back. Looks like they will cover anything that does not have anything to do with the engine. They covered the bike just not the engine or any parts that I included in the itemization that are "engine parts" (i.e boost bottle kit, centrifugal clutch kit, SBP shift kit, etc...) :( Something is better than nothing in the larger scheme of things.
    Kind regards,
