On that day when the bike was stolen I saw a guy who ride on my bike. I'm not a "fighter" but I took it back. The bike has a damaged transmission/drivetrain system and a lot of scratches (it was one week old that time).
Reported chasis number to police, they recovered the bike when involved in another crime (was used as 'get-away vehicle').
I was very lucky - Police picked up the thief because he was a wanted burglar and just happened to be riding my bike! This was only a few hours after he stole it. Police were able to return the bike to me within a week - having it already registered ...
My bike was dumped by a nunnery...i found it through posting on a local community board.
Recovered after someone purchased it and recognised it was stolen after the fact via this website
Bike recovered 4 days later 1km away from the original place. So probably the thief traveled from Bayswater to get his last train.... at least they parked it near Paddington station. Bike was spotted by an acquaintance passing by.
Hi I recovered my bike by visiting the following https://www.gumtree.com/p/bicycles/bikes-for-sale-as-singles-or-job-lot-oxford-oxfordshire/1366230050 (41 giles road, littlemore, oxford) guy claims to have had the bike delivered... claims to know no...
Critical thing was very clear CCTV that allowed the police to id the person who stole it. Ended up with £150 worth of damage, but now fixed and back on the road!
