Last weekend, they tried to steal my Anna (the name I gave to my C5) ... Luckily they failed. But I now I am left with allot of damage to Anna :( , they damaged the the following; - The engine - The rear axis - The wheels - The drive belt - Body to the damage What I think happened. Normally I have a chainlock the through 1 of the rear wheels going around the rear axis and then through a bicycle rack. First they tried to loosen one the wheels, then found out that that wasn't an option because of the lock. Then they tried to power Anna with a different battery and apparently reversed the polarity (because I saw burned spots on the wires and inside the engine) and finally because that also failed, they kicked the living shit out of Anna because everything failed. In the process of kicking the shit out of Anna, they kicked the rear axis crooked and stretched out the drive belt. First I have to get Anna back into ride able condition. The engine stills 'works' and luckily I have a replacement engine for it (but it needs allot of love and attention). But my main concern at the moment is the drive belt. There is way to much spacing between the engine and the wheel. So when the engine starts, the drive belt stays in the same position and the wheel doesn't move. So if anybody know a place where I can cheaply get a replacement drive belt (preferably here in The Netherlands) or a way to shrink my current drive belt, please let me know. But I will keep you posted on getting Anna back in to decent condition!
