Bikeworks Seattle burglarized; they're looking for donations to replace stolen bikes

Bikeworks Seattle (the folks that repair and recycle bikes to support youth programs) send out the following email today:

"Dear Friends,

We are sad to report that over the last few weeks donated bikes have been stolen from the yard behind Bike Works. The stolen bicycles were destined to be put back into the community in May at this year’s Kids’ Bike Swap. We lost a large pile of bikes – an estimated $1,500 value – that have been worked on since September during our volunteer repair nights and youth Earn-a-Bike classes and drop-in hours. With the KBS now just 4 months away, this is a big setback for us.

We are reaching out to our community to help! Most of the bikes that were stolen were “adult” sized bikes for older youth. (These bikes are harder for us to collect, take longer to fix, and are worth more money.) In the next three months, we hope to build our pile of bikes back up to what it was! Here is what we need:

Good condition adult bikes - smaller mountain bikes (26” wheels) and road bikes (700 cm. wheels) especially.

Good condition 24” wheeled bikes.

To donate a bike, email Donald at [email protected] or call our shop during business hours at 206.725.9408 x3

Volunteers who can repair bikes – specifically volunteers with shop level mechanic expertise. If you are interested in repairing bikes, contact Davey at [email protected] or 206.725.9408 x2

Any other donation (monetary or material) that can help us offset our loss.

For now, we’ve improved the security in the backyard. "

Ugh, that's so frustrating. I just bought a nice bianchi frameset from them in December. Wish I had something to donate, but I'm afraid I don't right now.
