FOR SALE:   stolen bike-help! posted by: George on 4/20/2000 at 7:37:34 PM
Call up a dragnet, comb the whole area, my DX was stolen! I know it may not do any good to use this, seeing as how it's country-wide, but just in case. God, my bike means everything to me. I think I'll go off my block 'till I get this fixed. IF you do see it (a shot in the dark), it's got saddlebags, Wacky Wheels, etc. My name's on the back of the seat on a little chrome plate-property of George-Dallas, Texas. Please help!

Sorry to hear about your loss. You have the serial number RIGHT????

If not, the good that can come out of this is to remind everyone to record their bicycle's serial numbers..!
