Re: Mountain bike sold on English Forum - please help me to find the buyer and seller

[serious head back on (for a moment, anyway)]

One question that hasn't been asked, yet (maybe because it's not truely relevant), is the circumstances of how the bike was stolen in the first place.

I got to thinking if it was properly locked, in a secure location, which might suggest the perp. had malicious intent; or was it quickly left against a wall for a quick purchase from a shop (or equivalent), which could suggest just opportunism, in view of making a quick buck.

This could give an indication (albeit vague) of the type of person we're looking for (or for Bill - sniffing out).

The two parties, ukal123 and lssilva have been in contact with each other. They have come to an agreement. The bike is safely back in the hands of the original, rightful owner. Hopefully, the bike is also safely locked up and bearing a new vignette.
