If he was work for, and representing 'Power Sports' at the time of the transaction you should be able to file a claim against them as they are ultimately responsible for his actions. That is classified as employee theft and they should have insurance coverage. File a claim with their insurance agent. You might even be able to file a lien against their business.

I'm still working a problem I have with a local bike shop where I dropped my 'like new' 800 off at and their mechanic took it out for a test drive and rolled it in the street causing over $3,000 in damage. I have all the paper work to process a claim in Small Claims Court (has to be less than $5,000) if the parts don't arrive by the end of this week.

My main focus for now has been to get this prick thrown under the jail.

Spoke to the GM at the dealersip and they won't accept any liability. So I'm turning it over to my attorney. Would be much cheaper for them to pay up than loose in court. I think triple damages and attorneys fees would end up around $60,000 instead of $12,000 not to mention the bad publicity. But if they want to gamble it's their choice.
