So, I got my stolen bike back after having spotted it posted on craigslist in New Orleans. Getting it back is a long story but when I did it was in complete disrepair and took lots of patient work to remove the horrible sky blue splattered paint job the thief threw on it. After getting it back, I sold and gave away a variety of parts and am rebuilding. I sanded down the frame cleaned it up and put on new decals along with clearcoat.

Its not the fanciest road bike around, but its taken me thousands of miles and am very happy to be reunited with it.

Great to hear

It's always great to hear about a stolen bike being recovered, especially if there was a beatdown involved.
