So, would it work if it was a locked pinned thread that was used to report stolen bikes...where if a member had a bike stolen they would contact the mod team with a description and outline along with a few pics...and the mods would be the only ones who could add to the thread?

This would mean members could see the information but not tamper with it?...this would keep it on track, relevent and informative whilst still under full control of the mods/admin/owners?

I think this is a great idea, especially the pm the mods to put details on and also the details template. Is there also some way the whole thread can be searchable because sometimes if you are looking for info on a popular bike, like a Clockwork for example, the main search tool throws up loads and loads of stuff. So if you had been offered a dodgy clockwork and you were suspicious and you tried searching the whole site you might feel swamped.
Also could there be a "Stolen bike of the day" piece on the main page that way anyone stealing a retro bike runs the risk of >15,000 people at least seeing it highlighted?

like the idea of "stolen bike of the day" maybe linked to the relevant area group with more detailed info
