Thanks for the explanations. Ofo seems to have skipped Portland. Just as well. Its undocked bikes likely would be subject to the same force that draws electric scooters to their demise at the bottom of the Willamette River.

But issues with theft aside, the shop in question does most of its work in repairs and builds. They end up with used parts that they sell cheap. My guess is that the owner was looking around the shop, and saw he was getting a few too many parts. Probably figured he could put a bike together and put it out for sale. If it sells, great. If it rides away, well, the parts were going to go for pennies on the dollar and he would only be out his time. I’ll route tomorrow’s ride past the shop to sell if I am right.
