Stolen Bike In Southern California!!!
i built an old 40's Colson for a friend and it was stolen last week from the GoatHill Tavern on Newport Blvd where it intersects with Harbor Blvd, in Newport Beach / Costa Mesa.
My buddy stopped to have a beer, locked it up in the bike rack in the alley, was only in there for 30 minutes or less, and someone cut his lock and took the bike.
it's licensed, the serial number is on file, and he filed a police report. the serial number is 290051E0.
it's a 26" Colson, black with burgandy accents. rims, fenders, frame and fork are original, and easy to spot.
the most distinctive part of the frame is the "looptail" rear-end.
there's not too many Colson's around (i pretty much cornered the market on them) so if the bike was stripped of the motor it would still be easy to find.
if anyone sees it, grab it. and if you're in the mood, mete out justice as you see fit...
