Paul Bike recovered 07.25.2016

Got a phone call from a local bike shop owner. He had a client asking about Seven cycles and said he saw one in a local pawn shop. Bike shop owner called me and I immediately called the pawn shop. It matched my bike description perfectly. Police are there today picking it up and starting the investigation into the theft!

Grant Bike recovered 07.25.2016

I read about how the Laney College flea market is a hot bed for stolen bikes. I spent the past two Sunday mornings canvassing this flea market, and lo and behold there was my Bianchi Iseo. I told the people that were selling it that I could call the police (had the serial and case numbers on hand) or they could let me walk away with it. I walked!

Brian Bike recovered 07.24.2016

A good Samaritan saw the bike for sale in a local park. Once home, he found my posting on Bike Index. He spent the rest of the week tracking the bike down with the help of a friend of his who is homeless and knew the people who had it. He was eventually able to buy it back for a fraction of its value, and returned it to me. I'm thrilled! Wouldn't have happened without Bike Index.
