Good for you, it appears you sold your integrity for slightly great gain than anyone first suspected.

I think your find is pretty cool. I'm also not offended at all in your choice to keep this bike. Ride on brotha, ride on

I don't see what the big deal is. How many "Should I steal this bike that's been locked up for 6 months?" threads have there been? Dude is probably rolling around on another stolen bike unless he is in jail.

kinda missing the point here i guess your doing this on purpose? the my in "my" tweekers in quotations
[h=2]"My" Tweekers implies ownership and no thought of returning the bike to the rightful owner probably NOT the thief....[/h]
If that tweeker had stolen your car and used it in a robbery the car would gone into evidence and you would get either a phone call or a letter about your car.

Oh boy...here we go again.

Good score BTW. I got a Bridgestone MB-5 in similar way a long time ago. I haven't been struck by lightning yet.

It pains me because it's boring. I'm leaving to go on an actual ride....maybe you should try that too.

It is my bike now. I had to pay a dollar to the store. But since it is a Bridgestone I have no problem returning this bike to the rightful owner. (Not that he/she would even want now** Just someone tell me how. When was it originally stolen? 2,4 10 years ago? Have the sheriffs dept run the numbers? Craigslists?

I would check local police and stolenbikeregistry.com for the serial, personally.

If you check the serial number you'll know for sure if it was reported stolen if it's not then congratulations on your new bike

Using punctuation is also doing the right thing.
