Found somone selling it in my area so i went to buy it but as i was testing it and looking to see if its mine i told him it was stolen and and he chased me and i drove off.
Through the power of facebook, I made it too hot and was dumped. Neighbour in that area spotted it and told me where it was.
Thanks to local people got it back. It was local thief everyone know here and nobody do nothing even police.
It was seen on the rack outside cash converters on shirley high street in southampton. We approached the shop and the police seized the bike - they then got a name which led them to a gang who had been involved in multiple break-ins in Hamble.
Spoon fed the Police lots of info and had them recover it. Frame number and fact I had different valve on wheels helped massively.
Checked all local cctv and posted on all local sites and asked a lot of people around the town eventually the thief couldn't resist selling it to another local person who had been told about the bike and they made contact with me ... from the day it...
Bike discovered after enquiries at local schools in the area. Had been purchased by students parents from criminal entity.
I put a strong message out to as many sites as I could and it worked, some 16 yr old scrotum that stole it has returned it to my house (lucky for him I’m at work) it just shows how fast social media works big thank you to all the spread the message
