[QUOTE 4852984, member: 43827"]Disappointment! The bike was handed in by a local employer as it had been "abandoned" in their bike storage area for six months and had notices put on it that it would be scrapped if not claimed. Given the value of the bike it has been decided to give them back the bike to see if more effort could be made to trace the owner. We would not like to see such a distinctive bike be the subject of some dispute if the owner does eventually turn up, or see it ridden by someone else. The correct decision, even though it was just the right size for me. [/QUOTE] Pretty amazing someone would leave a bike like that in a storage place for so long.
