wow you are soooooooo lucky thats like 1/23945689 chance of that happening. the guy probably just kept it and rode it then sold it for drug money but wanted the most he could get out of it.

Then he wouldn't have taken it to a pawn shop. They give you about 10% of the original retail. Craigslist would be the way to go, chances are good he wanted a quick buck. The nice thing is if that pawn shop doesn't totally suck, they have the name and address of the person who pawned it, and the OP can press charges and get them a felony if the bike is over whatever your states minimum value for a felony is (usually somewhere between 500 and 1000 bucks). I would strongly recommend charges be pressed.

But seriously, that pawn shop is terrible for not checking into whether or not the bike is stolen. The one I work by checks EVERYTHING's serial number with the police BEFORE if goes up for sale. Also any other reports of stolen items to see if they match descriptions.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

It is also a felony just for selling stolen items to a pawn shop in most states. And if the seller lied on the pawn agreement (like saying he is the original owner of the item) it is also a felony in most states. IF the police do their job, this guy will be facing felony charges regardless.

Edit: and nice bike, looks dialed, light, and ridden

i wish this would've happened with my friend's bike. it got stolen from right in front of us by six hoodrat kids, and we never found it. a $1600 sunday third wave that was ridden maybe five times.
