Almost half a century has gone by since a Nebraska man last saw his 1953 Triumph Tiger 100, and although its owner is now in his seventies, his stolen motorcycle is worth much more than it was 46 years ago.
The black and blue motorcycle, reported stolen in 1967, turned up in California this week awaiting travel to Japan, according to the Associated Press. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said it had confiscated the bike at the Port of Los Angeles and planned to return it to the man in Nebraska.
