    Does not sound random because of the time and the WORK it took to get it and where it was, the chance of discovery (crawling on top of somebodies armored vehicle, even at night would be very risky because a sept. night is not that cold, so people are about) So this sounds like a TARGETED theft by someone wiling to take the risk and do the work

    A piece like that would prob be hard to fence......would not be surprised if someone tries to sell it back to you after it passes through a few hands.

    And like stated in one post...it may have been someone that just wanted a piece of history. Still, it takes a low down rat bastage to steal from someone.

    Having been a victim of a low life thief that I met via SS I hope you catch the A-hole.

    I agree with Ron...target acquired.

    I also agree the perp is a sorry so-and-so, but he or she won't be caught i betcha.
    Ignorance can be educated and crazy can be medicated but there is no cure for stupid.

    I don't know, being it can be used on a VERY small select MV group and NOT a easy item to find in the MV parts market, If the word is out and someone who didn't have the item, shows up with one, the news would get out, unless it is used on a MV that is hidden in a cave and never shown, LIKE NOT, really give me a break, who does not went to show there MV, so in my thinking, the item WILL surface, then its a matter of tracking down its supple line if the new owner bought it in good faith, the MV world pretty much sticks together
