My like new bike was vandalized
Well, after 5 years of bike ownership while living in an apartment building my bike has finally been vandalized. My building, as well as the surrounding buildings have never had a problem but early last Saturday morning at 1:30am 3 teenagers - as seen on camera - smashed in the front of a scooter, pushed over my bike into my wife's bike and then ran a block over to another building and vandalized the 5 bikes that were parked there.
Waking up Saturday morning to see my bike leaning against another bike was tough. It has never been past 45 degrees and it is in like new condition but I guess there are worse things.
In an amazing turn of luck when the bike was tipped over it went over its kick stand and fell into the frame slider of the other bike and came to rest. With the back wheel off the ground the bikes gas tank settled against the frame slider and was held up by the kick stand and front wheel. This means that the only damage to both bikes is just my tank (which was mint), and I guess in that respect I am very lucky.
I have attached some photos of the teenagers, a damaged scooter, my tank, and how we found the bikes. Take pleasure in my pain lol.
I went to a Honda dealership and was told that Honda does not have a new 2003 tank in their national inventory. Does anyone know a supplier that might have one in stock? I am looking for a new or like new replacement.
