We get lots of such requests for the BSAOC magazine and we must have included about 20 such requests during the past year. No-one to date has ever told us that they have found it or been reunited.
When you think about it, its a hell of a longshot! How many of us know the registrations of our mates bikes? Not many, so unless the owner himself reads the post or request, its highly unlikely to succeed. Even then, what's the chance that the owner just happens to subscribe to the FB page or magazine etc.??
So glad this one turned out so well!
