Tsunami motorcycle washes up in Canada, owner located in Japan. Now Harley Davidson wants to restore it for him

The Japanese owner of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle that was washed out to sea in the tsunami of March 2011 says its discovery on a remote beach on the West Coast of B.C. last week is a miracle. The bike is a little rusty but amazingly intact. Peter Mark, a beachcomber on Haida Gwaii, found the container on April 18 while he was aboard his ATV in Naikoon Provincial Park. The container is believed to be from the back of a Japanese moving truck. The container was lined with foam and markings on the inside match it to a Japanese moving truck. The motorcycle was found on its side in the back of the moving truck container. This sign is from inside a Japanese moving truck, with instructions for lashing down objects.

The Japanese Consulate has the bike's VIN number and says it is trying to track down the owner. Six golf clubs were
