If anyone has time, could you please check on this for me?

I heard they sell a lot of stolen bikes.

Serial number T49194 the "T" is hard to make out. It could look like a 1

I put this ad for it a while ago.

Thanks, Larry

Different saddle and you had a pie-plate on the rear wheel. Highly doubt 'ol Karim would remove that. That bike is everywhere in Berkeley, doubt it's yours. Also you didn't have reflectors in the wheels.

Not many Schwinn Le Tour's that size. It's small. Like mine. I don't really think a San Jose bike would be in Berkeley (sorry I misspelled it. I was in a hurry. Lunch hour was ending. Anyway, the things that are different are easily changed. The seat, reflectors, handlebar tape, etc. It could be mine. I did file a police report, I can give the # to anyone who wants to check it out. I will repost this thread since I misspelled Berkeley.
There's a $100.00 reward for the bike, so if you're in Berkeley, it might be worth it to look at the bike.
