STOLEN BICYCLES!
« on: September 26, 2018, 10:58:34 PM »
From Dana McNair on FaceBook.

Stolen Bicycles! Stolen today from my inlaw's shop in Rainier OR.

Men's Columbia Chainless Model 65 in original condition, 27" frame

42" Star - older restoration. The Star has a very identifiable repair.


Please keep an eye out for these. Someone at some point is going to try to sell them. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

This is so and shocking to hear something like this happening in this day and age.  I wonder if there any more details explaining the theft event that could be published.

It would be a crying shame if they ended up on ebay as parts.

We all know their are unscrupulous individuals who will leap at the chance to get ahold of one of these bikes and to avoid being caught they will sell 'as-parts'.  I'm still wondering how in the world is a bike stolen from a bike shop? Did someone forget to lock the door or was there a break-in under the cover of darkness?  >:(

While riding my RBR around town I was stopped by a policeman. :P He just staring asking about my bike. Apparently, I convince him or my head badge didn't match. He confided that its not the stolen high wheeler that someone took from the back of the police station. The police got it for a community relations item.
I knew the local bike shop would put one out front and sometimes close-up shop and forget to bring it in.

I'll keep and eye open for these. I have some customers in Oregon I may be able to spread the word around to. Definitely need to see the pictures and distinguishing characteristics of the bikes.
