Re: another new guy (2nd build)
That's the problem with bike thefts, when your bike gets stolen, it will either be returned..in pieces, not returned at all, or broken up abandoned in a ditch somewhere. Taking it alone is bad enough, but riding it and smashing it up, all of that money...down the drain. As mentioned before....will never see my Rickenbacker again. Hopefully you catch the crook, I've caught a theif trying to makeoff with my bike, right out of my driveway in plain daylight! I calmly asked him not to take it or there would be some serious repurcussions via a phone call to the police department. We worked it out and he left. Since then, haven't seen him.
If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything!
