This bike was stolen in Brunswick on Saturday 3/11/2018 and advertised for sale on Gumtree within a couple of hours. As a result of some fancy footwork by a Stolen Bike Spotter, the Bike Vault Team and more than a few police, the bike was recovered in less than 24 hours and three males were arrested!
Top job by the Victoria Police!
Victims kind words: I am so unbelievably grateful to Bike Vault for restoring my beloved road bike to me. My bike is my most prized possession, and I was a total mess when it was stolen, running up and down Sydney Road like a woman possessed. After listing it on Bike Vault, I was alerted pretty much immediately after it was listed on Gumtree, and then it was recovered within 24 hours by the police. The Bike Vault team worked (on a Sunday, mind you) tirelessly with the police to recover it, and was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable. I really think the guys at Bike Vault are heroes. If there was a bike superhero, it would be called Bike Vault ?? Now I have purchased an ID kit so hopefully it will never ever happens again!
It may sound simple and it is if you have the tools! Check out our FREE Registration Sale Report - which is a black market trade game changer and can potentially add $$$$ to your bike, when looking to sell.
