Theft DescriptionAttached to a bike lock outside F45 Haggerston/HARA. D Lock broken and bike stolen.
Recovery DescriptionSaw an advert for the same make & model on Facebook Market place, reverse image searched the pictures used and saw they were from an old advert on Sphock from August 2019 so knew something was up. Asked for additional photos of the scratches on the bike and saw it was mine due to a damaged pedal & big scratch on frame which I did. Arranged to meet the seller, showed him it was my bike and showed the frame number matched me. He said he'd bought it the day before from someone else, no reason not to believe him. Gave it back and now bike is returned.
