I can share in your pain. 8 years ago, I had a custom Peter Weigle and a first generation Stumpjumper stolen from my garage. I recovered the Stumpjumper by calling the police department regularly after they had recovered it at the scene of another garage break in.
For the next several years while riding around town and crossing Iowa on Ragbrai, I thought the Weigle would turn up but it never has. I keep looking though!!
