Default Stolen from John Belfield

I received a letter from John Belfield today and spoke to him tonight. He had a 1989 Harley Davidson MT 350 Ex-Army track bike stolen from his museum just over a week ago. Please help by sharing this information. He feels it is either a military vehicle person or a motor bike person who broke into him museum.

Here is a better picture of a typical MT350. I know John's is an ex-British Army one (as in photo) and probably quite rare in Australia:

Jan,

There is a special "Stolen MV" sub forum (yes....it happens that often!) on the HMVF forum...might be worth posting it there as well.

Default bike

Just saw this. I would guess it was a motorbike person as wouldn't John have much more valuable army gear sitting about? The bike is modern, fast giving a quick getaway. Easily stripped to look like a normal bike.
