Very sorry to learn about such things, must be so frustrating for the owner.
Obviously this was a burglary but here's a tip in case you need to hop off your bike briefly and don't have a lock (popping into the newagent or whatever): Just before pulling up at the shop engage the highest gear you've got on the bike so if some toe-rag tries to nick it by riding away he will struggle with the huge gear while you easily catch him and 'politely' :twisted: request your bike back.
I suppose you could also unhook the bridging cable on your front canti so if he does get away he will crash down the road somewhere!

:evil: :evil: :evil: Total fking shit.

I really hope these are recovered. and the thieves get at least a year,though i doubt that will deter them.

There was a vid on liveleak showing some thief getting caught red handed by a couple of i think couriers who proceeded to kick the living crap out of him.
Not condoning violence, just saying that thief would now be think twice about attempting to take a bike.
Mob justice has been with us since there was enough of us to form a mob.

Nooooooooooooooooooo, I don't believe it! Brian is the only person I know who has a pink SM800. I have a colour swatch of a DuPont Pink on it's way to him now to compare against his bike... :facepalm: I sent him one last month but it wasn't close enough (see picture). I then finally managed to track down the original colour code for the "Hot Pink" and get some colour cards made and I wanted him to confirm they were right... Bugger, that doesn't look like that's going to happen anytime soon. B*stards.

Only the pink 1987 SM was back a few month ago, but in a very bad shape. He has to clean it, restore it… and to find the component.
For the other bikes and frames stolen, still no news :?
