Stolen vespa? Scooter theft? Tips and Abus chain lock
Lately there have been increasing reports of "Vespa stolen / scooter theft ”.
The unscrupulous thieves are primarily targeting the valuable Vespa vintage and Jougtimer vehicles.
In the most recent case, 8 scooters from the Vespa Club Frankfurt in Maastricht, Holland were stolen.
The thieves probably ignored a new Vespa. A total of 8 of the 17 scooters, which were even in 2 different places, were stolen with heavy equipment. Clear traces of a power cutter, Flex, were found on damaged rollers. According to initial estimates, there was damage of 40.000 euros - in addition to the tears, anger and anger that had flowed. Amusement and unique items can usually not be replaced with money. Anyone who has ever restored an old Vespa themselves knows what work goes into it and how much money you can put into a good restoration. If you then have a great, reliable collector's item with which you have shared many beautiful experiences, e.g. Vespa meetings, vacations, great trips with friends, etc. - then such a scooter theft is very difficult to digest.
Around the same time, a white Vespa T5 Classic with a Micron exhaust system was stolen in Frankfurt.
Just a few days earlier, a gray Vespa PX 200 was stolen in Kaarst / Neuss ...
If you follow Google and the news, you will find more and more reports of stolen Vespa scooters. Scooter theft has always existed - but currently scooter theft seems to be increasing. A worrying trend.
Tip: Use social networks and groups on the topic Vespa stolen eg “find my stolen T5” Facebook
