LINDON, UT (AP).- The mystery of a missing 4-ton sculpture outside a Utah motorcycle shop has been solved.
It disappeared over the weekend and apparently the artwork's sculptor took it back.
The attorney for Springville sculptor Jeffrey Decker says Decker owns the statue and was legally entitled to remove it.
Lawyer Randall Spencer said in a statement Tuesday that a loan agreement makes it clear that the sculpture was on loan to Timpanogos Harley-Davidson.
The $100,000 sculpture depicts an old-time speed racer. It was erected two years ago at the store in Lindon.
Employees who showed up for work Saturday found that the statue and the granite block it was mounted on were gone.
