Do you recognize this bike?

BART Bay Area Rapid Transit have pictures of recovered stolen bikes on their website. Interestingly the first bike shown is a pink, white and blue Fuso FR1. If you recognize it call (510) 464 7040.

They will need to see proof of ownership, like a receipt with a frame number, which may be difficult to produce. So if your bike was stolen and recovered how would you prove ownership? Do you at least have the frame number written down somewhere; or better yet a photo of the bottom bracket with the number clearly showing.

If it was a frame I built, do you have it registered, possibly with pictures on my registry? That would be a good way to prove ownership. Another idea is to place a business card or maybe a copy of your driver’s license inside the seatpost. That way you ask that the seatpost be pulled and state what will be found there.

If you live in the San Francisco area you may know who owns this, and even if not please spread the word any way you can. Post it on Facebook and Twitter

My thanks to Karl Fundenberger for bringing the BART website to my attention.

No doubt a good reason to keep updated registration info current on your Registry here.
Good luck to the owner if they see your blog and are able to retrieve their bike.

Always file a police report as soon as possible with as much detail as you may have. Having your bicycle licensed provides further proof of ownership. Nothing trumps a bill of sale with the s.n. but the more relevant links one can establish to proving ownership the better the odds of your convincing the authorities.
