Bike was locked through front wheel & frame to tree. Was still locked up around 10:00pm on 5/7, when I walked out at 0500am on 5/8 the cut lock cable and pad lock were sitting under the tree & bike was gone. Very 90's looking white trek street bike with regular straight handle bars, white frame with teal/purple lettering on it & black accessories (wheels, handle bars, seat, foot pedal saddles or straps to hold feet in place). Picture attached is from a google search since I don't have a picture of my exact bike on hand but looks exactly the same, only possible difference could be the #700 under the seat, I can't be sure if that was on my bike or not. Bike serial number could be registered to my father John Braun who gave the bike to me, he has owned it for over 10 years. I do not have serial number but there is record of a tune up for my bike & name at Village Cycle Center on Wells St. in Old Town.
