Bike Stolen - South Shields

Hi all,

Brother had his Orange P7 bike stolen from parents back garden last night - South Shields, Tyne and Wear.

Hand built and the rear sprocket was bust (broke it that day).

It is white in colour and has lots of custom addons....

Please keep an eye out for people selling one/ear to the ground please.

Also, where do people fence/sell these bikes after they steal them? Really need to find these scumbags if possible...

Thanks all.

[email protected] if any info arises - thanks

    ebay and gumtree normally. The police wont do anything about any listings as it's "circumstantial evidence" apparently, you are better off sorting it out yourself.

    Also might be an idea to look out for any suspicious eBay / forum sales for the following spec:

    There'll be a reward for return of bike 'cause as you can see it'll be a pain to recreate this little lot!

    And here we go again - my brother's bike was also stolen Sunday night (06/06/10) - obviously targeted as they would've seen it when they nicked mine.

    Feckin scumbags, police not bothered they're censored , need some peeps to keep eyes open.

    Was a Black Carrera Fury 20" with distinctive Silver Shimano Crankset (aftermarket replacement, as Fury's come with all black chainset as standard).

    Pi***s me right off, police should know who's dealing in stolen bikes surely?

    Anyway, appreciate any heads up for this or my P7...

    Cheers

    I would suggest visiting local small independent bike shops, especially ones that deal in second hand parts/bikes and see what they have in stock.

    Very sorry mate, hate this censored . Keep mine in the loft now its so bad.
    Consequences.... are just a harmless by-product of having a good time, all the time.

    Thinking about things isn't the same as doing things. Otherwise everybody would be in jail.

    Just an update peeps - if people in the South Shields area can keep a lookout for my custom Orange P7 it would be appreciated - Police caught the scumbag on another robbing job and he admitted to the theft (only for him to recant it later under solicitors advice at court - he was, apparently still smacked off his head when he admitted!).

    He also admitted to selling it in a South Shields pub - Police wouldn't say which one, so there is a good chance that it could be lurking around the streets.

    I'd appreciate any news on sightings (can't be too many white P7's knocking about) from folk in the area. I know it's a long shot people, but you never know…

    Cheers
    Dave
