"The 1914 Zenith was stolen during a burglary in the Portland neighborhood on Jan. 21.
The motorcycle is one of only two in the world, according to the Louisville Metro Police Department. The other one is in a museum."

"Stephen Pate, a Louisville man who restores bikes for museums and people all over the world, was working on it when it was stolen."

“These people have no idea what they stole,” Pate said. “Suffice to say there were other things sitting next to it -- my personal property -- that exceed the value of this motorcycle. While it is extremely rare, its value -- for the things that I work on normally in my business -- is somewhat low.”

That's a shame. From another article about the theft, the guy had been working on that bike for 5 yrs. And he also said the building was secure except for one weak point due to construction or something. So it doesn't sound like it was secured properly. so tisk tisk.
