RECOVERED: 2 x Promax 300 outboard engines - Mike Van Huisteen - REWARD

I am offering a reward of £100 for anyone who can provide me with the current location of Mike Van Huisteen, and my two 300 promax outboard engines.

They have been missing for several months, and all attempts to retrieve them have failed.

Mike Van Huisteen is sometimes known as 'Springbok Mick' and is the proprietor of www.springbokmotorsport.com

Reward for engines.

Thank you Simon.

Mike does not live at the address of his website, and he *does* live in milverton drive, birmingham. The problem is he has become very good at running away when he seesme. He has actually run away and jumped over a fence into the next door garden and run down the opposite street!

See www.springbokmotorsport.co.uk

I have several CCJ's against him and his 'company' but that is next to useless..

What I am now ofering is a One Thousand pound reward for the return of the powerheads. No questions asked. My insurance company will hit me £1000 for the claim, and then bump up my premiums, so paying anyone else the £1000 saves me money in the long run.

Can't we rustle a gang up and go round and sort him out.

Or even better kidnap him, put him on a RIB and then drop him off on a small bit of rock in the Atlantic.

Actually, I have attempted to contact him at that address, but he ran down the road, climbed over a fence and was gone before I could react.

Funny in retrospect, but it does proove that he has stolen the engines, rather than there being some misunderstanding.

I am offering the reward for the return of the engines *or* the delivery of Mike Van Huissteen. Either will do at this time to be honest.

I am no longer offering the reward for the return of the engines. Anyone wishing to deliver what is left of Mr Johan Van Huissteen ( Springbok Mikes real name ) to Southampton or South East London can collect a reward..

Engines were recovered today from premisis rented by Mike Van Huissteen. One engine was stripped and the electronics were in a packaging box, but otherwise looks complete. The other engine untouched, except all the spark plugs from both engines were missing!!

What about the person in question? If you find him, buy new spark plugs and make him eat them!

Aparently, his fingers got broken - I believe this is why he decided to return all the items he was holding.

Could not have happened to a nicer person.

I would however like to get further information on his fingers, and if in fact this is true. So if anyone know stuff, please tell me..
