Title finally in their possession and I rode up and took a look/ride this evening. Whoever did the physical seizure of it broke the right mirror clean off and shattered the front fender. Front brake switch is missing but rear brake still lights the lamp. Ignition surround plastic is missing a small piece.
Starts/runs/rides well. No horrible sounds other than the clutch basket and/or plate tabs being roached. Newish Michelins, chain. Just under 20k miles. Looks nice enough but does have the odd scratch here and there. Replace the missing/broken bits, a good wash, flush/bleed the brakes and clutch, oil/filter, set the tire pressures, and check the voltage regulator and all the main connection, and I'd likely ride it to work the rest of the year without a worry. Over the winter, replace the clutch, fuel filter, etc.
