Possible stolen bike - possible recovery via gumtree ad?

Postby jaseyjase » Mon Oct 07, 2013 1:29 am

was this too obvious?

guy selling wheel after his bike was stolen - http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/south-la ... 1029203322

guy selling complete bike with exact stolen rear wheel on it - http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/beaconsf ... 1029198625

scott seems waaayy too cheap, kinda what set me off, plus the ad description just seemed fishy?

Very suss, 2 different numbers, alerted the rear wheel seller. Both sellers are in South Lake and the bike looks to have a flat tyre lol

Yes front wheel. Tired when I posted that. The bike ad no longer available. Front wheel seller knows what he is talking about. The bike post didn't know what he was selling, and given different front wheel most likely has a few other bikes, or someone lost a front wheel to go on that bike.
