Caught a thief -- what to do about it?

Well as some of you may remember, one of my ZX10's got stolen back in June. It was a very nice bike that I custom built every piece. Layed it down one night around 9pm and came back about 9:15 with a truck and somebody had already stolen it. I reported it stolen and claimed it on my insurance.
As luck would have it, I found a guy selling a bunch of my old parts. I cant be sure he is the one who stole the bike, but he is definately trying to sell custom parts that came off my bike.
So what to do???
I called the police and they dont give a crap. Simply too much going on for them to follow up on some stupid stolen bike parts.
What I'd really like to do is go meet the guy in person and split his wig. Unfortunately Ive got way too much to lose to be going around handicapping people.

I am not saying to do this but sugar in gas tank and knife to sidewalls of all four tires there is a way to spider crack his whole windshield with sparkplug just do it ninja style and when he gets new tires do it again. Follow him to the store and beat his ass! Just a few things a theif deserves, I cant belive the police wont do anything about somebody selling stolen parts, keep going to them show them the theft report and demand as a citizen to be protected against theft!

Its green and it says Kawasaki ninja zx10r on it!

If I remember correctly the parts are legally yours. It does not matter how the person aquired the stolen parts. Show up to buy everything with the police report in hand. Once the parts are presented take them give him the report and make an equal exchange. It might be worth a shot.

If this happened to me, a few things would come to mind.

After having a good handfull of detailed info, name, address, phone, email address, copies, proof (you can get this by being legit and actually buying a few things from him to get all that), and a small synopsis.
This will take 8-12 hours and a few days to fully accomplish, but the releif is awesome and rewarding!

With that info:
Call 10-15 of the closest Police, Sherrifs at various times and report this to as many as possible, Watch commanders, everyone, so by the end of the week, the entire County LE are aware, I doubt a theif would want dozens and dozens of LE aware of him and his actions.
Call as many lawyers as possible and see what they can do.
Then send info to Every news outlet you know(call and email), chan 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, and dozens of others in your local area and national, some might post it. Post this on Craigs list in ever imaginable listing relative to yours.
Post on FB, Twitter, MS.
Log into every crime report for your county and through out the state.
There are also Police and Law Enforcement websites, POST IT ALL THERE WITH ALL THE INFO!
Call and report this to your insurance.
Join every humaly know motorcycle forum and post all that info. There's a good 100 of them, let all the sportbike, harley, moped, classics, enduros, dirtbike, etc people know. (everyone of them hate thieves and you never know who's reading it and might actually act upon it, this can get the guy killed, there are some crazies out there).

I have a few other techniques that are not ethical, if you want I can pm you.

When all said and done email the guy and tell him exactly what you did and that, you have a few weeks off to do some more serious stuff that can put his life in jeopardy and that you want everything back with % for the time lost.

This is just a few ideas to get started.

09' Ice Blended Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino
10' Venti Mocha Latte spilled some of it, was too hot
11' Peppermint Mocha W/Extra Shot of Espresso
12' Eggnog Venti Latte
13' Bagel
14' Standard Drip (since a Venti latte went up 20 cents)

I would contact your insurance company. They paid you off for the bike.. I'm sure they would be very interested in recouping any parts or the whole bike. `
They will contact the law.
