Stars & Stripes Custom Harley Stolen, Recovered in Iowa

By -

Custom Harley bagger was part of cross-country charity fundraiser against bullying when it was stolen over the weekend.

When you’ve put in tons of money, time, and work into your custom Harley, what’s the worst thing that could happen? It could be damaged by a careless individual, scuffing the brilliant paint scheme you spent days agonizing over. It could also be stolen, then chopped up and sold as parts on the black market (or eBay, if the criminal is that blatant).

That last bit could have happened to custom bike builder Len Edmondson of Edmonton, Alberta. Omaha, Nebraska CBS affiliate KMTV-TV reports his custom Harley was stolen over the weekend across the river in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

The custom Harley, which had $75,000 worth of work put into it over the time Edmondson has owned it, was part of a charity ride with Bikers Against Bullying USA from South Carolina to Sturgis, South Dakota for the 78th anniversary of the famed biker rally.
