Bike rescue!!!! =)


Tempting. I honestly don't know what I'd do.


Too bad we don't know the condition of the seat and the rest of the bike. Could give a better response to your question.

The basket looks sweet! I have a soft spot for classic stuff. If I was you, I'd be looking at it too and wondering as you are. If it really is abandon, then it would seem other parts are up for grabs too.

One thing I'd probably consider is leaving a note on the handlebar or frame with a Sharpie. Gives the owner a chance to reclaim it.

It depends on how quick and easy it would be to remove the basket. I probably wouldn't want to risk looking like a bike thief over a basket.

If it's locked up in an isolated area... Then I'd probably take it.


I want the bars. I'll pay shipping to 28202


I'm too square to take it, unless I knew for a fact that the owner was never coming back for it... but that could be a hard thing to know.

Now, if it were part of an organized "cleanup" effort, taking abandoned bikes off the street for a nonprofit bike coop or other charity, I'd be a bit more willing.
