Look what turned up! I'm now the owner of 2 125s.
the chumps who nicked this clearly had no fucking clue what they were doing as apparently it's been sat in an alleyway a few streets over the whole time, multiple residents on the street were apparently reporting it to the police numerous times between then and now but it took them 2 weeks to "find" it.
the chumps have obviously knackered the ignition/steering lock, as well as losing the side panels (wtf?) and cut through a bunch of wires in an attempt to hot-wire it.
one of the residents told me they overheard someone on a moped on the phone to their mate saying "yeah, it's still here, we need to move it before someone else nicks it"
happy days for me!
now to get it fixed and sell the other one I bought to replace it.
