That's alotta tweak to lift four-tons...

Seriously though, as an artist I'd be both complimented and insulted at the same time-

1. Who invests the time and tools to lift a 4-ton statue?
2. Why the hell don't you invest that much effort/time in making $$$ so you can just buy it???

Hope everything works out as it should, methinks there may be more to it than just "the cover story", ...?

When yer dealing with tweekers, their brains are damidged, and there is no repair, they dont think normal any more, so what goes through their minds is not what you or I would think......Roach.

Timpanogous Harley has been having its fair share of financial problems over the last 12 months and this is just another kick in the nuts.

this has to be a publicity stunt or inside job. I just don't see someone getting 25,000 dollars worth of equipment to steal a 4 ton piece of bronze.

there also has to be some video from somewhere around there that would show the equipment needed.

interesting read.

there is no link on that forum to show the report of the artist taking it back. Will there be charges filed for a false police report by the dealership? But they can't collect insurance if they didn't own the sculpture, so why did the dealership report the statue missing?

maybe it was for publicity to sell just one or two more bikes?

I have a question, how do harley dealerships go into bankruptcy when one new harley cost so much money? I don't mean to be a smartass, I just don't get how they are not profitable unless there are too many dealerships (saturation)?

Statue aside, that Harley dealership is really cool.

The wood and most of the other materials in the building were reclaimed from old factories in the area so it looks really rustic. Last time I went in there they had a couple Knuckleheads and other bikes on display upstairs.
