Theft Description

Stolen in burglary of my home in Teddington

Recovery Description

I put an alert on eBay and it came up 2 days after it was stolen. Then I arranged to go and see my bike many miles from where it was stolen - the other side of London. Having confirmed this I then informed the police who after a great deal of badgering eventually drove to the location and recovered my bike. The seller was not charged to my knowledge. Interestingly the seller had bought it online and re-registered it on https://www.bikeregister.com with the same frame number I had already done this with. No questions were asked and the seller was able to present me with a bike register authentication that he was the legitimate owner - what an absolute waste of time! As they tole me ...."Unfortunately we are unable to stop this as not all bikes have a unique frame number, therefore, we have several all listed with certain frame numbers."
