4-Ton Jeff Decker Bronze Sculpture Stolen From A Harley-Davidson Dealer

jeffdeckerbronzeWe all know that motorcycles are very vulnerable to thieves. Apparently 4-ton bronze motorcycles can evaporate as easily.

During the night from Friday to Saturday the Jeff Decker bronze “Land Speed” was stolen front of the Timpanagos Harley-Davidson store in Utah. The sculpture was mounted on a giant rock slab and the thieves, probably with a crane or forklift. were able to lift the 4-ton bronze and its support and to disappear unnoticed…I wonder. Can it be another case of repossessed motorcycle?

    5 bucks says it was some out of work illegals stole it to cut it up and recycle it. Like the ones stealing the live power lines and plumbing out of vacant houses. I am sure bronze will fetch a pretty penny.

    It just shows how much Decker’s work is in demand! People will risk prison to own his art.

    I would be very surprised to find out it is a theft. I would investigate (1) repossession and (2) status of insurance.

    gives a new meaning to the word-LIFTED

    did the dealer pay-up-front for advertisement?

    maybe the shipping Co. dropped it by mistake…..

    A$$HOLE, you got it or it is a Publicity Stunt. It would be crazy to File a False Police Report.. I wonder how much it was Insured for? What person would buy something like that, that would be like growing Mary Jane in your front Yard!

    It was either a theft and will be cut up and scrapped, or the dealership was hurting, and they had it “disappear” and will turn it into the insurance co. to get some money back. Like the line graphs show a little further down on this blog, searches for, as well as sales of HDs are in the shitter. Time for some creative capital.

    Probably being ‘recycled’ which is a real shame.

    ummm….in case no one reads the news….Jeff Decker took it back! dealership had gone thru bankruptcy & previous owners listed it as a $100,000.00 asset when they sold the joint…wasn’t legally theirs to list or sell…property of Decker, rightfully so…civil charges probably being drawn up vs jeff by new owners, not criminal…Jeff’s “beef” with previous owners…lot’s of drama….whatever.

    According to http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=9229644 the artist took it because it was on loan.
