Brooklyn Machine Works ROBBED

The shop was broken into on April 27/28 between 10pm and 6am. There's a reward for recovery of the bikes, or even just a name.
Any folks that should happen to see any stray BMW bikes in your hood, PM me where/when. Louisville slugger in hand, the hunt is on.

Bikes stolen -
Brooklyn Machine Works Hitman #2 Grey
Brooklyn Machine Works Supertrucker #1 Yamaha Blue
Brooklyn Machine Works TMX #41 Maroon (no pic avail)
Brooklyn Machine Works Race Link #57 White
Brooklyn Machine Works Park #212 Sea Foam Green
Spooky Project X Yellow (no pic avail)

yeah, who would want this $3000+ hunk of crap anyway....




try to think before posting, this guy probably lost $10,000+ in bikes because of some scum bag, and you make a stupid comment like that...

Wow, that was really rude, and you obviously don't know what you're talking about.

I will keep an eye out. If you have any pics I can take a look. For some reason those types of bikes tend to end up in and around whistler come this time of year

BMW (not brooklyn) makes crap bikes. BMW, the good ones, are some of the most solid, sought after bikes on the market. If I had the cash I would buy myself a race link

Somewhere around Brooklyn I take it?

How many idiots have to scold the kid for his comment? you're the ******bag. Most of us haven't heard of this bike brand before, give him a break. We all know most of us had to search the bmw brand to see what kind of bikes they were.

It's also that fact that he acted like an idiot and just said something stupid when he had no idea of what he was talking about.

Whats your point, like I said most of us haven't heard of this bike brand before. Honestly, when the op said brooklyn metal works I sort of assumed it was a no name crap brand too, but I wouldn't go and say that in the thread.

He wasn't precisely bad mouthing BMW bikes, he was just saying they thieves didn't get much of a bike, yes he is probably ignorant or misinformed because he didn't know how BMW bikes were and assumed were bad because they are not very known, that doesn't make him a ******bag, just a misinformed, ignorant and perhaps a slightly unpertinent person.
