Bulgaria and I can prove it !

I really loved that bike but I wouldn't nick it back !

Though now I'm gutted it's been stolen after I had owned it for over 16 years

Perhaps you should post the engine and frame numbers. It won't help get the bike back but it may sound an alarm sometime in the future.

Not my bike anymore so I can't really publish that information without current owner permission but if it was my bike I would be happy to.

I was trying to work out why anyone would steal an old R80 but I guess it's because they are easy to get running by just cutting into the ignition wires and maybe it can be "bobberised" using most of the parts?
Has anyone here come up with good anti theft wiring/ignition lock solutions? I think 2019 bikes are no different
