A high school in Portland has a bike repair "shop" class. They receive bikes to work on. How they got my bike is a mystery. Whoever stole it maybe abandoned it. The teachers and students scour Bike Index when they receive the bikes. They saw that one of the bikes matched mine and they contacted me! translated from English

Medium recovery 1223 Bryan Bike recovered 2019.11.10

Three people reported leads due to my posting on Bike Index. Someone bought the bike before the police investigated, but the buyer searched the serial and discovered he had purchased stolen property and reported it to me and the police. I can't believe how helpful the posting on Bike Index was. translated from English

A couple was searching Bike Index to find their stolen bike and they saw my post. Coincidentally, they were eating at a food cart where the owner had noticed my abandoned bike at a homeless camp. THANK YOU to the good-hearted people of Portland who helped each step of the way. translated from English
