Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

i made the fliers, complete with a picture, and a reward (i didn't mention how much the reward is though, but i can write it in if necessary). i copied 50 at work while no one was looking and i am going to spread them around, maybe drop some off at the post office.

if i had a working moped this would be a much faster enterprise. oh bones, how i miss you.

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

Put the amount of the reward on there. Money makes movement.

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

yep 100 , as its more then they will get for it stolen

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

make sure to put one on the bulleting board at harvest

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

it is far too hot for me to walk to cambridge, i put them up around fenway and the surrounding areas. there's a project down the street so maybe kids from different projects know each other? i mostly put them at bus stations.

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

Cambridge is definitely the place to put them unfortunately...the chances are greater that someone grabbed it and took it for a ride local than risk going into Boston. Hit the afternoon or ride the T down may be a better option!

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

the columbia street projects, in my experience, is where most area 4/east cambridge stolen stuff goes, which is why i mentioned harvest.

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

I'm thinking if it wasn't for a joyride, you're going to be looking for a very bad kryloned bike since the color is so flashy.

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

i just did a quick run through the area on my way home. nothing.

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

Is there a ride after the fix it?

Lets swarm the area with posters and talk to kids, flash 100 dollar bills about!

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

lets rent a helicopter with a 60-caliber machine gun and fly over cambridge till we find the perpetrator.

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

this could be my bike ... maybe ...

I just sent an email to this craigslist ad ... the ad looks sketch ... my moby did need a good chrome polish

could some of you kHz types send inquiries into this ad and ask for pictures / make / model etc. ...

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

Ill try the long distance plea.

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

i put the word out that my moby was stolen .... my friend bud who is manager of cambridge bicycle bumped into this guy in harvard square on sunday and chatted him up ... bud even managed to take photographs of the moped and it's 'owner'. does this person look familiar? (I apologize if this is a trusted moped army person.)

i am not 100% certain that this is my stolen moby ... there are several things about it that cast a degree of doubt that this is my moped ...

grips (i put new white ouri grips on it)... these grips appear older like they were on it much longer ...

mirror missing (easily removed)

removable license plate present (suspect)

tool case under seat missing

rear luggage rack is the same as mine ... not completely uncommon ...

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

Never seen that guy before...

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

I cannot see the photos, would you kindly send me the link..

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

unfortunately, its just too common a bike to make any determinations without a vin number, i think. still, we MUST get your moby back.

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

email sent. Motherfucker

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

That was quick … I didn’t hear back from the poster.

the ad went something like this …

"selling boyfriend’s motobecane moped, it ran until last weekend. orange. no pics, must go."

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)

maybe they panicked when they got 100 emails about the moped they knew was stolen.

Re: STOLEN MOPED CAMBRIDGE MA (again)
