Pennybacker bridge

MORE than a dozen motorcycles have been found at the bottom of Lake austin in Texas, USA.

Frames, engines and other parts have been discovered for over 15 different motorcycles. They were found by a diver who was diving under the Pennybacker bridge.

Frame and engine numbers match up to bikes reported stolen, some as far back as 2005.

Motorcycle thieves strip a stolen bike for parts and discard the rest, usually through a friendly scrap-metal merchant.
