Stolen Cannonball Motorcycles Recovered

The four Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run motorcycles, truck and trailer that were stolen Monday night, September 22, in Tacoma, Washington, have all been recovered.

On Tuesday night, the local Sheriff’s Department contacted the truck’s owner, Jon Neuman (also the owner of one of the stolen bikes) and said they had located his 2001 Ford F150 pickup in Auburn, Washington, about 20 miles from Tacoma. On Wednesday, authorities discovered all four motorcycles inside their trailer at the Port of Tacoma apparently in lieu of a shipping container in preparation for shipment overseas. These four bikes (a 1919 Harley-Davidson J, 1926 Harley-Davidson JD, 1931 Harley-Davidson VL and a 1928 Harley-Davidson JD) were a part of the Carson Classic Motors Texas Team that competed in the Cannonball.

The team is still missing two spare engines, a 1928 JD (VIN 28JD1831) and a 1919 J (VIN L19A12738) along with numerous crates of spare parts, tools, luggage and riding gear.
