Hi,

Before xmas i spotted the tandem below. It was being used to transport a christmas sign up and down a hill, Highdown Hill, off the A280 Littlehampton Rd, Goring, West Sussex.

I was taken with it, and made an offer to the manager, who stated that they would discuss it after xams.

When i returned, it was not there, and the manager stated it had been stolen on xmas eve night. They now use a BSO MTB.

If you see this, or are offered it, please contact the police, and /or manager of the Highdown Hotel, 31 Highdown Rise Goring-by-Sea, Worthing BN12 6FB.
01903 700152

It was complete, and would only have needed chains, and a good clean.

I would tie them, along with some new barbed wire, to a fence, and only flog them when my barbed wire had gone rusty :twisted:

I would say that leaving any BSO unattended and unlocked at the side of the road is a bit naive even if it does have a big sign resting on it. Did the sign go as well?

the sign was broken off of it, only held together with wood screws. It was locked, but not well......
