We are sure that this news will remind you of Randall from Gone in 60 Seconds. Motorcycle thieves in Australia stole an extremely rare 1000cc Drysdale V8 motorcycle on August 5 even after knowing that selling this piece of art will be more difficult than stealing it. Motorcycles as rare as this one can never be sold in one piece and even the smallest of its parts can’t be untraceably sold. We are sure that the thieves were aware of the fact that this motorcycle is among the rarest present on earth and that’s why they executed a precise plan of stealing it while its owner was away.

According to Motorcycle News Australia, there were three thieves who broke through a security gate and cut locks to gain access to it before loading it into the van, so presumably they knew it was a rare and valuable machine. For those who are unaware of the fact that the Drysdale V8 was created by engineering prodigy Ian Drysdale, the same man who built a prototype two-wheel-drive, two-wheel-steer, hydraulic-drive machine back in 1990. Ian created the whole of the V8’s engine by hand while using parts from Yamaha FZR600s.

If anyone of you have a slightest clue of this V8, cops in Australia would like to know about it.
