Post Registering Vintage bikes at DMV - Bad time to find out they're stolen

"After I completed the DMV process with the Husqvarna, the day was over, so when I got home that night, I Googled the Lien Holder and called them. The Lien Holder told me to make the request in writing and I would have an answer in a few weeks. They didn't say I would have a Lien Release, they said I would have an answer.

Then I looked up the former Registered owner in the telephone book. He was still in town, so I called him. His wife answered the phone and told me the bike was STOLEN from him 10 years ago! As you can imagine, I was thinking that is it, the bike will be confiscated and I will be out the cost of the bike and all the parts and work I have put into it since we bought it and my son Zack would be absolutely crushed that his bike is gone..."

Did Zack lose his bike? How about the OTHER two Shawn tried in good faith to register? Read the full story!
