Hi,

Hope you guys can help me get my bike back. It was stolen in Wapping London on 31st January together with another GT bike I own a RED LTS.

It is a Blue Custom Built GT Zasker LE 1999. I built this myself while living in New York with Shimano XT parts for Bottom Bracket, Derailers, Brakes, Shifters etc.
Fork Manitou
FSA Headset
Pedlas Welgo 804
TItec Saddle
Kore Stem
Mavic wheels and Michellin Wildgripper types
Picture attached was taken on a trail in Pennsylvania.

If you see it for sale please let me know. Or refer to the Metropolitan Police REF CAD3263 of 31St January

Bad luck, did you paint yourself (not seen one that colour) if it turns up for sale it will be spotted !

No its an original colour. I bought the Frame new In California in either 98 or 99 and built the bike up myself.
Brought it back to the UK only 12 months ago. The only upgrades since that picture was taken was Mavic Crossmax wheels and Michelin wildgripper tyres lite in blue.

You have no idea how it feels to have someone just take something you put so much effort into and enjoyed riding.

Er think I do...
STOLEN - GT Rebound 1995 Blue: Chichester city Centre.

It's not even the money (this one cost me very little), it's the time, effort and satisfaction of building up a nice bike.

Sadly not been seen again. It turned up day after it was stolen but not since.
Suspect it probably got dumped and is rotting away somewhere.

These are some pictures of the TOE-Rag stealing my two bikes. The Red one is the LTS and the Blue the Zaskar.

Underground car park and bikes chained to wall with three locks.
