Someone contacted me on Facebook after I had posted photos and details of the bike. It was sold to them for a very small price and they looked for stolen bikes locally, found my post and contacted me so I could collect it.
We shared a photo on Facebook, made public, shared over 200 times. Anonymous message locating exactly where it was, shared with police. Police advised us to go and retreive it ourselves which we did.
Got dash cam footage of the suspect car, cleared up the image and ran the plate which matched the car. Sent the plate to the police they went round to his house and he had a garden full of stolen items. The bike ended up all the way in Glasgow
A very generous couple in Eastville spotted the bike and in realising it was unique searched the site and contacted me. I am so happy and relieved to see the kind nature of others - thank you both so much!!
