    insult to injury Raleighdon's custom bike stolen

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    unbelievably, last night we heard some noises out back and today I discovered his beautiful Davidson custom bike was stolen from our garage. Seattle folks, Portland folks, this is a bike with a whole lot of chrome, a Sella An atomica saddle, and so so much more..
    We are heartsick over this one.

    Oh Mimi, that is unfathomable. I hope Katrina is returned to you and Donald soon. There will be a lot of people keeping their eyes peeled, scouring Craigslist and all, of that I am sure.

    Mimi, I hope you don't mind but this is from FB, another photo of the bike. We're riding tonight after work and this weekend. We will keep our eye peeled.

    Hope you find it! It is very distinctive - it will be hard for someone to get rid of without someone else recognizing it!

    I just can't believe that it was stolen. What a crazy world

    Wow; that just totally sucks. I'm terribly sorry. I sure hope someone is able to spot and recover it. Shame on the person who stole it.

    That's just awful. I hope it can be found -- it certainly is a distinctive bike.

    A thought, someone could contact the local paper and ask them to run a story. Perhaps, under the circumstances, the thief would decide to return it. Do it no questions asked.
    That's a good idea. Letters to the editor might get someone's interest in running a story or is there a writer in the house? AIDS Lifecycle community has current and former riders up here. Just posted to them.

    Is this on bike journal?

    I am passing the word (and your picture) on to all my Seattle cycling friends to keep their eyes peeled. Have you filed a police report?

    It is so sad that this had to happen, I'm so sorry
