Recovery DescriptionReport to police, get a crime reference number. Pretended to be an interested buyer, I found it on sale on Facebay (always check here as its totally dodgy and poorly regulated by Facebook) Take note of any hills, ask to check bike over as most people dont want you to come in to their homes you'll be outside. Jump on bike ride off down the noted hill and just vanish for a bit. If the police would help you then you wouldnt need to go rogue, it is not illegal to take your property back as long as there was no assaults or trespassing etc, but always be careful as you may not know who you're dealing with if you do it yourself and bring back up just to keep the situation under control. Try and provide as much evidence to the police that the bike is yours, frame number distinguishing marks, custom modifications and time stamped social media images of it.
