When Customs ran the vehicle ID on the motorcycle, a 1967 Omaha stolen vehicle report appeared and now a Nebraska man in his 70s — who still lives in Omaha — will get his bike back in a condition which may be better than it was when it was stolen from his back yard 46 years ago.
     U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Monday the black and blue 1953 Triumph Tiger 100, recovered last week at the Port of Los Angeles, was on its way to Japan, with a listed value listed of $9,000. It was worth $300 when stolen decades ago.
     A National Insurance Crime Bureau employee in Los Angeles said it was the oldest stolen vehicle he can recall being recovered.
