    Oh no, not again Dan. Can't believe it. All that work.
    Not dumb, but why no lock?
    (Don't answer - a few months ago you could have asked me "Why no helmet".)
    It doesn't happen to us, only others.
    It does happen to us, you know.
    Use your lock on the next one. (Not one of those Micargi kits, I hope.)

    Aww Dan, sorry to hear your ride was stolen. Having recently had one stolen myself I fully understand how you feel. I want to hang the SOB that stole mine if I ever catch up with him.

    This is the second one in less than a year! :ack2: The first one was stold in Vegas. It was a nicer bike, Older Royce Union with Rock Shocks, angle fire head, Raw 66cc engine. I had more $$$ into this one. MICARGI bike, angle fire head, "SPEED" carb, SBP X-chamber, 66cc Flying Horse engine, duel brake lever, billet intake. The Police have pics of it but I have doubts that they will find it. It's probably not in the state now! :rolleyes7: But I still pray that it does show up some were! :bowdown: The bike itself was popo:poop: But it was my only transportation!:sweatdrop::icon_cry:

    Bummer Dan.
    Good locks are a must, but you can also at least disable their ability to use the motor.
    I came up with a CDI mounted Keylock Ignition Module that does the trick and bought the parts for 50 of them to get wholesale prices.

    Even if they do get away with it you know they won't be able to ride away with motor assist, and the low life "iron horse thief" will have to buy a new CDI just to make it run again, that is if you don't catch him trying to ride it away and start the motor and just hang him.
    I live in Arizona, we hang horse thieves here, iron or live ;-}

    I include them standard on everything I build now.

    I use a cable for the wheels...

    and a 6-foot, 12lb. Kryptonite chain for the frame. :bowdown:

    I carry the cable around my waist and the chain around my shoulder like a bandolier.

    I found this "chronic" keeping post a few feet from my secured bike in the busiest part of town. At that time, I just had the cable, not the HD chain. He and his pals would've easily cut it, if I hadn't come back. The guy was in dirty clothes and stuck out like a sore thumb among "suits". I saw him; he saw me. I kept a constant stare upon him as I put on my safety gear a few feet from him. The getaway van never arrived, so he slowly slinked away after 20 minutes.

    Great idea with the chain and cable......And the chain makes a dandy weapon if you get into a fight with rival 'biker gangs':jester::grin5:

    They would need a cutting torch to try and cut my chain.

    That'd be VERY obvious; fire attracts attention.:detective:

    It' me again danlandberg, Got another one stole here in LA. CA. about 4 months ago. This one was a schwinn to replace the micargi. It was bought at the DI, (ut version of the Good Will) only this one was Grubee powered, 66cc, angle head, stock carb, (never could get the cns carb to work), billet intake, sbp chamber, new back rim (black) roller clutch setup, and self made duel pull brakes. This one was locked up in the car port with a 1/2 cable. (bolt cutters do a clean and quiet job). I new it was just a matter of time before this would happen. This is the city of lost Angles and their body's have yet to be found. This one doesn't bother me as much as the first two, it wasn't as clean a bike but worked well. Plus CA ban the sale of two stroke kits, so it was just a matter of time before I would have trouble with an *** hole cop. I guess its another build on the plate. I'll try to post a pic just in case some my see the thing on the road some where.

    I understand your loss. Had two stolen myself. The best way I know of is a quick release front wheel, just remove it and carry it with you. Also a GOOD padlock thru the peddle sprocket. Or a quick release seat post. If the scum can't ride it away they are not as quick to take your bike.

    who needs a torch
    cables or chain or Ulock it cuts them all

    if they can see the bike they can steal it its just a matter of how much time it will take
