Default Aid for members with stolen bikes

I was reading a post about a member who had is bike stolen then read through the other members posts who have lived the same nightmare .

This bothered. Me tremendously and I started thinking that if these bikes are actually returned to their owners the condition that they receive it in will likely be damaged or missing parts etc.

I have only had my Sporter for a few weeks and due to upgrades I already have quite a few parts that I was considering selling or ?

I have decided to keep them and if a member ends up getting his bike back but it needs parts to be put back whole .
I will donate them to help that member out .

I am pretty new here so if this has been suggested before count me in .if not then I think this would be a worthwhile thing to do

There has been similar things (Not sure about for stolen bikes, but I know there have been a lot of times the guys here have helped out people that have lost bikes for whatever reason). It is definitely a good thing and I keep a lot of parts around for similar reasons.

Do the bikes ever get returned? I imagine the percentage is low.

That is from the insurance company's so I can not gurantee its accuracy but if it's lower or higher it seems that atleast some members will get theirs back

I have some stock parts I'd like to get rid of for the cost of shipping:

slip-ons
a/c
seat

The ham can has a door ding in it.

I keep all my take offs, and have in the past sent parts to any XLForum member who needs them. I will continue that practice until my parts boxes are empty.
