Mesa, AZ 3rd Bike stolen in 2 yrs!
I went on vacation to Yosemite for a week, and I left my bike on the locked on the back porch with a flat tire while I was gone. The ONLY thing stolen while I was gone was my bike. Some neighbourhood sh*t went into my backyard and took it out the side gate. It was not visible from the street and nothing else was stolen. It must have been someone who knew it was there, which leads me to suspect my neighbours. I'll be calling the po-po and putting up flyers, posting here, and talking to my neighbours.
This is the my third build in 2 years and they have ALL been stolen within 6 months. I am really getting sick of this BS. Pics of my ride are attached. It's a blue Schwinn Legacy with 13 in. ape hangers, a 72 spoke front wheel, a basket, and a bailing wire rig on the engine sprocket cover.
PM me or reply here if any of you Phoenicians spot it. Thanx.
Wow dude I don't know what to tell you. That really sucks that you can't keep something without some lowlife stealing it. You have a fairly distinctive build so maybe you will have some good luck recovering the bike.
Got my fingers crossed for you.
JimTry to be the person your dog thinks you are!
Sorry....ya never know who the thief(s) might be.Don't for get to look at any tree huggers you might have for neighbors or some idiot who just doesn't like the sound of a nice running 2 stroke.Good luckMotoMagz
Get yourself a set of the alphabet for stamping metal. Put your initials somewhere on the bike where they won't be seen. Then paint over them.
Make arrangements to take your car and Family? away for a couple of days. Be sure everyone around knows you are leaving.
Here might be the hard part. Get a friend and the both of you sneak back into your house after dark. Have a video cam. Take turns watching 24 hours a day until you catch the thief in the act. Let him take the bike home. Then call the cops, report what happened and what you did. Ask for a cop to come to your house right away. Show him/her the video and tell where the **** lives.
The video will show the crime happening and the bike at his residence will have YOUR initials on it for additional proof.
If you lived around here I would be more than happy to help do something like this too! Nail his A$$ to the wall!
What part of Town? I drive north/south through Mesa (Val Vista through Higley) to/from most days, so I'll keep an eye out for it.
As Bill mentioned, keep an eye on craigs list. Also, pull out the Yellow Pages, and visit the local pawn shops.

I am getting saddened and mentally sick of hearing of folk's pride and joy's being stolen.
I HATE *^%#%$ thieves! This makes me MAD!
I am sorry for your loss, and the third one to boot.....
I hope you can persevere with another one. There's gotta be a way you can lock the next one up indoors.Do not ride faster than your guardian angel can fly!
My guess, the same person stole all 3 and is waiting for you to build them a fourth. Sorry to say you had better get to the bottom of this because someone has surely been watching you. I'd say plant some bait and see what you catch. My be time for a hidden motion camera. I feel for your MB loss.
5th one down, SKU# C330PIR would work out well.
