Theft Description

Left my bike in the hall whilst I ran down the the basement to deliver a mobile phone. Someone on Soho Street must have held open the self closing/locking door and waited 5/10 seconds until I was around the corner then took the bike. I was gone less than one minute.

Recovery Description

After six weeks I found my bike on Gumtree - so I got in touch with the seller - the young lady bought my bike from a market stall in Hertfordshire for £400 for her Father but it didn't fit him, so she posted the bike on Gumtree. I explained the bike was mine and gave her the bicycle registration number stamped into the bottom of the frame and many other details about the bike that only I would know. She agreed the bike was mine and I negotiated to buy the bike from her for £300 - I built the bike less than one year before for £1,700. I went to her Fathers restuarant where the bike was being kept and met him, a lovely fella and I happily cycled home.
