our friend Ray came in asking for advice about finding his stolen Fratello on Brick Lane the other day, then he sent us an (unfortunately tiny) photo to check if any of our readers had seen it around. It’s quite unfortunate that the Brick Lane market is so well known to have cheap stolen hand bikes, it’s all supply and demand – if people want stolen bikes, others will sell them, and they will pay others to steal them, it’s a vicious cycle and it also damages the reputation of the legitimate sellers. Anyway, please would you be on the lookout for this whip, the serial number is 06106023 B55 T and the police CRIS number is 03001231212 and Ray would really like it back. Thanks!
The bike was as pictured but with a new set of Kamsin wheels and the handle bar tape which has red flecks when it was stolen. Good luck Ray!
