Some lowlife stole my bike off of my porch last night. Although this bike was not worth much (if anything), it was my only means of transportation.
It’s fairly easy to spot. I’ve not seen another Takara ever in town and this one will stand out to anyone who’s looking. It’s an all black road bike except for the TAKARA name written in white. It had both a mud flap and lights on the back and front.
I expect that whoever stole it will try and convert it to a simple fixed gear (messenger style) bike, so bike shops should be on the lookout…
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
