Smashed window of Southwest Bicycle. (Photos: Dan Houghton)
Southwest Bicycle (3605 SW Multnomah Blvd) was victim of a smash-and-grab theft last night. Shop owner Dan Houghton says thieves broke one of his windows at around midnight and two high-end bikes were stolen. The bikes are valued at about $10,000.
Please keep your eyes out for a Javelin Barolo Time Trial bike and a BP Stealth TT bike. Both are pictured below…
Javelin Barolo TT bike. Estimated value $6,000.
NOTE: This is not the actual Stealth TT bike that was stolen. Houghton says the stolen one has Shimano 105 components, Hed tri-spoke wheels and a Selle Italia time trial saddle. The bike that was stolen is worth $4,000.
Houghton says both bikes are “very unique.”
If you see either of these bikes, please call the Portland Police non-emergency line at 503-823-3333 and reference case number 11-74663.
