Basic Bike Info

Bicycle Type: 
Fixed Gear / Track Bike
Flat Black
Condition of Bicycle / Distinguishing Features: 
KHS FLITE 100 with chopped bars, cut about five inches out on each side. Front brakes only, and a horn zip tied to the bars. I had taken the original factory Kenda tires that came with it, and stitched them to the frame, as a bumper so that it wouldn't get scratched up when it's locked up. Both on the top bar, and on the diagonal bar. The seat is a brand new San Marco Pelle seat, and a Sette seat post & clamp. There is a sea foam green bike chain locking the seat to the frame, as it was stolen once before. I also had my Kryptonite U-Lock on the bike. On the rear was a bike rack, with a bungee net, and a bungee cord that had red ends on it. The lower rear fork has a sticker that says "Soylent Green is people!" on it. I miss my bike like a kid misses christmas. Any help is good help.

Incident Description

Which type of area was your bike stolen from?: 
Storage room.
How long was the bike locked in this location?: 
Incident Description: 
The bike was inside a secure area, and stolen with another bike. The other bike that belonged to my roommate has been returned all ready. Things that have changed since the photo: I cut the changed and cut the handlebars shorter, so they fit my hands only, not anything else. I still have the bars pictured at home. I painted the rims black, but the paint was chipping off of them. I added the green chain described above that locked the seat to the frame. The new seat post & clamp were glossy black, so those are similar, but not the ones in the photo. I also added the horn. There was a rear reflector, and a "Mayor Daley's Bike (Authority?) light" on the back. The tires were relatively new gator skin tires, and had been reinforced with some older bike tires, so that they were twice as thick. The Front tire tube is new, and the rear should have a few patches.

Recovery Information

Recovery Notes: 
On September 2, 2012 the victim wrote to report the return of this bike thanks to an employee of Comrade Cycles (Damen/Chicago) who suspected it was stolen and checked the Chicago Stolen Bike Registry.
