Police Trying to Steal Motorcycle

I am sending this message out to anyone with advice for one of my guys who got pulled over last weekend and the police Arrested him and said his bike was stolen. it is a 2000 R6 That he we just restored 6 months ago. Then when he provided all the paper work Then they told him that the motor in the bike was stolen. And they are keeping the bike and wont return his phone calls. i have spoken to Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited and he thought that was very odd as No one records the Casting numbers off of the motor. Any advice will be gretly appreciated .

i said the same thing but then I thought why spend money on a lawyer to get back something that already belongs to you. Plus he doesnt have the money for a lawyer.

A good lawyer will take this case and only take 33% of the money he wins suing them if you need ones number let me know. You shouldnt have to put no money down.

sounds like your buddy may have left some things out, but patrick is right, there is no way to run the numbers on the engine, and the vin isn't stamped on the engine as far as i know for the R6. You or him needs to get a copy of the police report and then go from there. If he was arrested on a class b or above charge then someone might be able to get a copy of the charges from the DA office and find out of what exactly he was arrested for, UUMV or auto theft.

Are you sure that it is the cops that are holding the bike and not some impound lot? When a cop pulls you over and sees that whatever it is that you are driving is stolen, he is going off of the vehicle registration (the license plate #), not a vin or any other identifying #. I think that the others are right in saying that your friend left out a lot of the story and what is really going on. When someone gets arrested and they were driving something, that vehicle is towed to an impound lot and only the registered owner can get it out. If the cops still have it, he should definitely call a lawyer. I hope that this helps.

simple

Anything attached to the Frame belongs to the bike including the engine.
the frame is what is registered. not the engine. if the frame was stolen and you put an engine in it then the engine by law also becomes stolen as it is a part of a stolen frame.. . 1st if you have the title take it to a lawyer then he will get your bike bonded for a designated amount untill the problem is resolved. two show proof the the engine was purchased and not stolen and who it was purchased from. the police cant just keep it its usualy a court, ;police can only seize it then the real LAW takes over which is the Prosecuters office ... did your buddy get charged with possesion of stolen equipment? ...lots of missing pieces in the story!!!

Trust me, your basic patrolman is not going to go through all of this trouble. Yes they can do this but the likelihood that this is going to happen is almost 0 to none. Like they said, "and leave shipleys with no security." Normally this kind of work is done by the detectives or investigators in the agency.

I think that all depends on the patrolman. Not everyone is as protective of Shipley's as others. Haha
