Stolen Rotrex bike

Post by Flinders »

Anyone seen this bike? It is a Rotrax, apparently. I do hope he gets it back.

At least it's unusual enough to be noticeable when anyone knowledgeable comes across it. :(

From the link

... Rotrax Cycles was founded in Southampton and became well-known for its lightweight frames. ...


I should say so.

The only bike I ever had stolen (1964) was my Rotrax. It was recovered in a terrible state when a cyclist friend saw somebody riding it and bundled them into a phone box and rang 999.

I hope the owner of this bike gets a much better result than I did.

Dreadful loss after so many thousand miles and memories.

Bike theft??

As in stealing a cowboy's horse-a lynching job.
At very least a birching.!!

Previously worked with guy who had this.
Never did anything wrong in his life after that!
