I noticed that there has been a bicycle parked in the same spot for over a year. The frame and front wheel are locked to the bike rack with a u-lock. The seat disappeared about a month ago. It's a pretty good bike, a Trek 7200 hybrid. How would I go about claiming that bike? I would hate to see it be stripped for parts since the seat is missing, the chain is rusted, and the tires are flat.
If I do claim it, what work would need to be done to make it ridable?
