    - ask the seller?

    :-)

    - if you're really worried, call your local cop shop and ask for a list of recently stolen bikes w/serial numbers?

    I ask for an ID from every expensive craigslist buy I've made so that I can copy down license info. That way, if it becomes a problem because it is stolen, I have the "original" owner's info.

    Buying from a house with an address- ask to see original purchase invoice. If you arrange to meet on a shop corner- walk away.
