Stolen bike traveled US to Philippines

MANILA, Philippines – An $80,000 motorcycle stolen in Texas last year from Hollywood screenwriter Skip Woods has been recovered in the southern Philippines, officials said Thursday.

The custom-made chopper was found Tuesday by police in Cagayan de Oro city, said Jose Justo Yap, regional director for the National Bureau of Investigation.

Woods, a collector of custom-made vehicles, wrote the screenplay for "Swordfish," "Hitman" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."

His chopper was among 14 motorcycles, three all-terrain vehicles, two SUVs, a sports car, a shotgun and ammunition for assault rifles recovered by police in raids in Cagayan de Oro and nearby Bukidnon province, Misamis Oriental provincial police Chief Graciano Mijares said.

The U.S. FBI sought assistance in the recovery of Woods' motorcycle, Yap said.

An American private investigator representing Woods said the screenwriter was surprised that his motorcycle, which was stolen from the parking lot of his condominium in Houston, Texas, ended up half way around the world.

That is an ugly bike. 80K?


  1. $80,000 is a lot for ugly. but, look at all the high priced ugly shit big dog used to sell. apparently ugly is big time for some folks.

  2. With that kind of activity, there must be some ONE behind. Smugglers must be "big people", I guess. They should be caught more importantly and that is not easy.
