STOLEN- 1980 HONDA CB650 in CHICAGO IL

Owner: my friend Rick (broken cell phone, call/email/etc me)
Previous owner: ME (this shit is personal)
Pre-previous owner: my friend Matt (this shit is really, really personal)

Black and grey 1980's Honda CB650, 4 into 2 exhaust, broken left front turn indicator. Cleanish chrome, tank is black with grey undertrim. NO AIRBOX, it is rigged up with a circular air vent, see photos. Bike is VERY TESTY so likely if you see it this motherfucker won't drive away too quickly. Rear tire is at 60% tread, still has mud guard, engine cleanish, leaks like a motherfucker, will be missing two pieces of fairing: two triangles directly under driver's seat cushion:

On the right side, you will see a bright chrome circle screwed on with 3 washers that has 6 vents (see photos)

On the left side, you will basically see the battery.

Rear brake indicator is cracked, end of the seat has a small tear in it, probably still has a brand new "SUZUKI BOULEVARD" sticker on the tank (see photos)- it was a joke.. don't ask.

Contact me for VIN, plates, other information. REWARD AVAILABLE, both for the bike and the perp's identity. Find the bike AND the perp and I'll buy you dinner. DO NOT STEAL BIKES, DO NOT STEAL FROM ME, DO NOT STEAL FROM MY FRIENDS. PERIOD.

LAST SEEN ON 3500 BLOCK OF BEACH, IN CHICAGO.

This is so personal I'd rather they don't- so I have the distinct pleasure of putting them through a wall.

My friend moved to chicago and found a bike, but needed a carb rebuild and he ended up rebuilding the entire bike for the hell of learning it, couldn't get the wiring down and a few other problems, anyway I drop this one on him for a good price and he's elated. He can ride full time and rebuild that one for his roomate.

Anyways, in one week, his roomate/best mate/love interest? leaves him high and dry, cell phone explodes, gets fired, bad relations with a few friends, and now his bike's gone.

Why anyone would want this is beyond me. I feel terrible for him, scouring old japanese cruisers in the area for a replacement cos I know he needs some outlet, riding is his only release. Poor bastard.

..he left it outside my friend's house. We've never had problems. Granted, technically you should never leave a motorcycle anywhere but a concrete fortress of solitude.. but that's rather hard to transport.

+1 Even a shitty POS. At least get a big ass chain and a tree to chain it to.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Report it to the police with the VIN and all that. Sure, they are busy and wont go on a manhunt for it, but... This guy wont get anything trying to sell the bike, and he wont get parts money for it. My bet is that is was taken for a joyride and the police will find it laying in an abandon lot or somewhere fairly close to where it was stolen.
