I still use my old steering wheel lock
It's a deterrent thing

They are old vehicles which are easy to breakin

Very sorry to hear that :shock: thieving low life's got nothing themselves cos they don't wanna go get things legally as it takes too long to earn it they just want it quick and fast, and easy and respectable people have to suffer, "what goes around comes around"' 20 folds :D the law is a funny thing you have to be careful how you deal with these things! #-o

I had my Norton Commando stolen in the 1980s broke steering lock and sensible cable lock
they pushed it 1/4 mile down the road but couldn't start it.
at the time I used the electronic ignition amp as a key and removed it daily.
I've just had a really well slightly off the wall idea.

I've noticed a few 'breakers' popping up elsewhere on the net.

My insurance company have paid out and I have got another bongo now, I have a steering clamp, wheel clamp and an ignition stop switch fitted. This should put the thieving buggers off.
