Back in around 1975 my old friend Phill decided he was going to get himself a Harley .He had no trouble getting one with an out of province license on it ,it was good to get an out of province one he told me cause if he got caught with it the owner would have to appear in court evey time Phill went for trial ,and here in Canada you tell your lawyer your sick,go to the doctor, get a note ,and your trial day is postponed ..The witnesses have to come all the way back for each trial date ,and you can do this 5 or 10 times till the witness is sick of spending money .No witness no trial..Clever fellow that Phill..he even new all about the acid test and how to beat it .He informed me that when the cases are stamped the molecular structure is altered and the acid brings this out .For Phill to beat this he just took a stamp with an x on it and stamped all over the serial numbers altering the molecular structure much more ..next he ground the boss down and stamped his own numbers into it. Phill was quite busy building his chopper for the next month or so ,he had his old Lady spending more and more time working at the massage parlor as he was buying quite a few parts .Back then you couldn't give away stock parts ,everyone wanted choppers. Well the day to register it was comming up ,the bike was almost ready ,Phill was making plans on taking trips ,and showing off his project .Thats when the drug squad of the RCMP booted down his door . It turned out Phill had sold some kids something that was suposed to be dope but wasn't ..The cops looked at his bike and asked where he got it ,When he said he had pieced it together they consficated it and did the acid test ..Next thing clever Phill knew he was booked for possesion of stolen property from person or persons unknown. They proved no such serial number existed and it was up to him to prove his innocence ,cause they proved it was in his possesion and obviously stolen.Well Phill's Old Lady took to long bailing him out so he decided to give her a beating .She had enough of his Cleverness I guess cause next thing he was back in jail ,this time with the added charge of "living off the avails of prostitution" his Old Lady was the star witness..Phill got 5 years for all his shenanigans.
Oh yeah your bad cases .. You can think of many ways to get around your problem ,trouble is non of them are legal and for a lousy few hundred dollars your going to risk jail,and for sure your whole bike ,not just the one case ,being confiscated ,they take the whole bike ,and how much do US lawyers charge nowdays. What the hell are you even asking about this for ..go to the e,bay guy tell him whats going on ,but do it by e,mail so you get his response from him as proof .you probably have tons of documents allready .he probably violated some federal law you guys down there have ,so the fbi may want to know what he's doing .Take your cases to the police tell them what you told us and what happens happens.
Anyways start back to where you were before you bought those cases.. And your wiser now!
