    just started taking apart a dyno cruzer that i bought at the swap meet and i find a balboa beach bike rentals sticker on the frame. called and no pick up. i'll call tomorrow and if its stolen ill give it back no problem. im a big guy and i could get my money back the easy way or the hard [court] way. my question is their a way to check vin's before i put more money [motor] in a bike? like a vin hot line? maybe chopping off the hands of thief's isn't such a bad idea after all. hopefully all is good but i dont think rentals are sold. thanks dennis

    Rentals are sold on a regular basis.

    odds are it was a rental that went up for sale. i'm near balboa, and i've seen them (and other places) selling off their older bikes on craigslist.

    if in doubt, call 'em up. should give you peace of mind, at least.
