Harley-Davidson Washes Up On Beach
Peter Mark was riding his ATV, exploring an isolated beach on Graham Island in British Columbia on April 18, 2012 when he made a spectacular find. Washed up on the beach was a large white cargo box off of a freight truck. The back door was ripped off, and when Mark moved closer for a better look, he saw a motorcycle tire. It turned out to be a complete Harley-Davidson in the truck box.
The bike was rusty, particularly on the wheels and handlebars, but the logo on the gas tank was unmistakable. The licence plate shows the motorcycle found on the shores was registered in Japan.
“You just never know what you’re going to stumble upon when you go for a drive, and lo and behold you just come across something that’s out of this world,” Mark said. “First I thought, this has got to be the craziest thing anyone has ever found,” he said.
“Then I looked a little closer and the licence had Japanese writing on it. The wall of the trailer had Japanese print on the tags. And the first thing that popped into my head was this is likely from the Tsunami in Japan.”
