    Please help me recover these bikes.

    On December 21st 2011 at 1530hrs, I discovered my two Motorized bicycles stolen. Two locks were used to lock the bicycles up to each other and around a wooden pole. Both locks were cut.

    Bike number 1 bike is described as a Trek classic cruiser matte black in color. It has ape hanger handlebars and a black motor. With chrome accents. The bike is registered through SDPD.

    Bike number 2 is described as a black beach cruiser canteliver frame with red wheels black motor with custom pipe and a double springer monark front fork and front disc brake and red Tour de Fat plate on the rear rack that read "TDF2011". Bike number 2 is not registered. I do have pictures of both bike.

    Please return no questions asked or if you have any information that leads to the recovery there is a reward $75 per bike or any information that leads to recovery the bikes. Please call/text anytime (760) 977-9532 ask for Charles or call/text anytime (760) 382-3197 and ask for Nick.

    Help us take down San Diego bicycle thieves.

    Bro that really sucks there is no worse feeling. I know both of those bike well and if I see the piece of **** that stole those I plan on making his pain legendary. After having my truck stolen this year I have been fantasizing about catching somebody stealing anything of mine.

    On a lighter note i guess you'll be upgrading from the China/CNS nightmare of a rolling repair expo sooner than you planned. If you need help with the build or some welding done, dont hesitate to ask.

    Thanx for the condolences. I didnt even get a chance to test out the Monark front end and disc break I just spent $100 in labor to make it right and get the back tire changed out. I miss the rolling repair expo lol. I kept me busy. It was my outlet from work. I gotta wait till tax time to get a bike. Felt mp with a 4 stroke. Untill then i got nothing to get around on.

    That really sucks bro, well Ive got an extra brand new Tanaka 33cc and an old Schwinn beach cruiser (that I recently cut in half to do a frame extension but, can easily weld back together) you could borrow it to get you back on some transportation. You would need a Golden Eagle Install kit or some other drive mechanism (which arent exactly cheap) but are dead reliable. Its basically the same setup I ran when we rode from Mission Bay to Imperial Beach.
    Let me know.

    I hope you get the bikes back! It's a shame you have to leave them out in that parking garage. Those under building things really scare me too, after experiencing the Northridge quake of '94 living in L.A.. Some of those structures squash flat near an epicenter, so if it starts to shake, get outta there!

    If you somehow get them back- maybe just keep one at a time down there? anyway, good luck.

    Damn sorry to hear about the theft. Its been a long time since I've had a bike stolen, not lookin forward to the next time. I do remember it really sucks though. I hope you get them back. With all the good people on here I'd like to think that someone will see it, but were so spread out...

    As for being preemptive, does registering the bike with the police do anything? Was it worth the time? And I actually have an alarm on mine. Ill post the link below. Its not the greatest alarm, has a plastic housing but is incredibly loud. It has a 3 digit password, vibration sensor and outputs 100+ db, I hid mine down below my engine where it isnt so obvious.

    THANK YOU GUY FOR EVERYTHING AND TRYING TO KEEP MY SPIRTS UP, THIS IS WHAT THIS COMMUNUITY IS ALL ABOUT!!!!

    I've seen that alarm on ebay. I was gonna get it but didnt. Now I am for real this time. I already bought a $50 Kryptonite lock and cable. As for registering the bike with the police, if they raid a crack den or someone gets pulled over with it and they run the number and find it reported stolen then there is a better chance at getting back. It's only $19 also. Damn I miss my China/CNS nightmare of a rolling repair expo lol. I'm just waiting for them to mess up and take it out. It would be painful to part them out. Just easier to sell as a whole.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. It made me realize how vulnerable we are with these light weight machines. I thought about how I would feel about discovering my Panther or Indian Hiawatha stolen. They represent a fair amount of my meager income and a whole lot of time and effort, a couple of years worth for the Indian. I hope somehow you get your bikes back.

    Kind of weird... obviously someone local saw them and broke the chain and stole them... but an MB would surely stand out being driven around in that town, so was it someone around for the holidays more likely who was leaving town?

    Losing one is bad, but two at the same time is crazy...

    I feel your pain ! I had one of my babies stolen 2 months ago and still no word. I look every time I am out and about driving. They cut through my cable locks with bolt cutters and was gone in like 2 minutes!
