Back in the early and mid 70's I was living in San Francisco. Tried to insure my Shovel and was told flat out that it couldn't be insured because the recovery rate was almost 0. Had a girlfriend who was a semi-bigshot with an insurance company and she said she could take care of it. Nope, she couldn't do it either. They would do new bikes because of pressure from the banks (a new harley was over $3,000 so banks needed the security on their loans) but that was it.
