Burglars Steal Bikes From Keith Richards

Burglars Steal Bikes From Keith Richards This Rolling Stone might have to gather some moss. Although we’re not always sure that he’s still alive, that Keith Richards was dearly departed from his incredible collection of modern and vintage off-road rides has been confirmed. Although there has been no official word from the Titan of rock, an email from the Chichester Police did iterate that the bikes had been burgled from the British band man’s UK estate.

The 1957 Harley-Davidson panhead motorcycle was stolen from owner Delroy Sims who lived on the east side of Houston, Texas some time in 1963. Not only is it nearly a miracle that the bike was recovered , but the fact that it’s in good shape and running adds mystery to the miracle.

Better late than never?

Whenever we are a victim of theft, we tend to hold out some hope that perhaps our stuff can be recovered. More often than not, our hopes are in vain, and our stuff is never recovered. Those of us who have gone through this can relate to frustrating interactions with police, who seem to give up immediately on putting any effort into recovering stolen goods.

That’s why this story is an unusual one: not just that a stolen motorcycle is recovered, but that it took forty eight years to do so. The 1957 Harley-Davidson panhead motorcycle was stolen from owner Delroy Sims who lived on the east side of Houston, Texas some time in 1963. At the time it was still a relatively new machine.

Not only is it nearly a miracle that the bike was recovered, but the fact that it’s in good shape and running adds mystery to the miracle. The world may never know the story here and it’s kind of killing me. Who stole it, and where has it been living this whole time? Did the most recent buyer know it was stolen? Did they lose whatever money they spent on it? How did it come to be identified as stolen, and what kind of proof did the son of the original owner have, that this was in fact his father’s motorcycle?

The original owner, sadly, did not live to see the motorcycle that he had apparently spent his life’s savings on, recovered from its theft. The bike was restored to his family, though, and his son has taken possession of the bike, which is now a classic. The great news about this is, the current (actual) owner isn’t going to turn around and sell his dad’s recently-reacquired classic. Delroy Sims’ son Darrell says the bike helps him feel closer to his dad, and that he’s going to restore the bike to what it looked like when his dad owned it.

The Strange Story Of The Traub Motorcycle

The Strange Story Of The Traub Motorcycle This one-of-a-kind hand-built motorcycle was way ahead of its time, then seemingly time traveled 50 years into the future. Every bike has a unique story behind it, from a highly modified custom job to the most common Harley-Davidson Street Glide. The story of the Traub is more than 100 years long, for half of which it was bricked up and forgotten about in a Chicago building. We wrote about this back in 2014. YouTuber Yammie Noob recently did a little more research on the Traub and discovered some more interesting pieces of the story—some of which contradict what we originally thought.

However, sometimes stolen motorcycles return to owners or their heirs after many years. An amazing story happened in the USA. Motorcycle Harley-Davidson Panhead 1957 found 48 years later . He was stolen from Delroy Sims, who lived in eastern Houston, Texas in 1963.

Darrell says “I probably miss my dad everyday and now he’ll be in my garage.” He notes, “you offer me $100,000 dollars today and I don’t think I’d take it. I don’t think I’d take a quarter million.”

Hopefully whomever purchased the stolen bike is at least heartwarmed that the motorcycle is treated as an heirloom, and not a windfall, for this family.
