Recovery DescriptionMany thanks indeed to the very public-spirited and vigilant individual who spotted my bike on this site - and also noticed it for sale on Face Book Marketplace. Greater Manchester Police (City centre division) notified and within 5 days (including the busy Christmas weekend) - an operation (involving 5 Officers) had been mounted to recover the bike. The "seller" was arrested at scene - and 2 additional stolen bikes identified at his address ! - So significant criminality uncovered - as well as a valuable bike being restored to its rightful owner. Huge thanks indeed to everyone involved.
