In a previous blog entry I posed this question -
Is it okay to remove a part or accessory from a seemingly abandoned bike?
I will now elaborate on the issue through a series of posts. First, the object of my attention is displayed here:
I did not take a picture of the full bike, but as you can see from the front tire - it had not been paid attention to in quite some time. I have never had a front basket before, and if this person was not interested in taking care of their bike, might I put the basket to better use? At this point it was just serving as a trash receptacle for passers by. Did I take the basket? Stay tuned.
