    nyc... stolen track bike purchased?

    figured this was worthwhile enough to have its own thread:

    I may have inadvertently purchased a stolen track bike. Send me your serial number. If I have a match I will return it.

    yeah, eh?
    if i were in hir shoes... well, i'd hate to be in that situation, because i'd be biting my freakin lip over how good of a deal i got. i wonder how much the person bought for a possibly-stolen bike...

    A bit of description can't hurt.

    Sounds like a friend proably pulled the "Dude, no ****ing way that should have cost $50"
    Props for being honest.

    How does one know if they bought a stolen bike? I mean, obviously if a crackhead sells you a shiny Cinelli track for $100, then it's probably stolen, but still..

    A friend of a friend can get me pretty much anything I want:

    new, slightly used laptops for $100

    new, slightly used hi-end cellphones for $30

    new, slighty used power tools, dewalt, makita, bosch

    leather jackets, jeans, etc. etc.

    NYC is full of black market hustlers...with hot property to unload.
