Man that is really shit, very sorry to hear it. Was it taken from a 'secure' car park?

I hope they catch the bastards.

Why don't you put a request on partfinder for some of the parts that are harder to find in good condition. That request will get sent out to many breakers with your contact information. Maybe the bike is at a breakers being stripped. It could give you a lead. There can't be that many Tuonos in that colour at breakers with undamaged parts on them!

Thanks max, that's a great idea.

I have so far been watching all ebay ads, forums (that I can think of), and local sites that I can think of. Not thought of partfinder!

I will do that.

Hi,
a small victory.

I found a bloke selling parts from the bike on eBay. I found ou his name and address and he turned out to live 5 minutes walk from him.

He has now been charged with handling stolen property. Unfortunately, the rest of the bike wasn't at his house.


So, I am still actively looking for it (with the core of my search revolving around this bloke).

I am also desperately fighting the temptation to grab this guy and persuade him to tell me where the bike is.


Even if I get the bike back in parts, I would be reasonably happy! I'll still have to complete the insurance claim, but I'll buy back the parts an use my good parts for the next bike (ohlins rear shock, akra cans, pillion seat cover, r&g bungs), and sell the rest.

Unfortunately, I mustn't get my hopes up as I still haven't found it!
