Year: 2005
Brand: Bianchi
Model: Milano Cafe Racer
Stolen in Portland, OR 97212
Stolen From: 211 NE Morris St.
Neighborhood: Eliot
Owner: Caitlin Wichlacz
Description: 2005 Black Bianchi Milano Cafe Racer (men’s frame) stolen from inside my home at approximately 3am, April 13, 2012.
It has black plastic fenders (missing one fender clip) and a River City Bikes sticker on it. At the time of theft, it was equipped with a giant ding-dong bell and little red Serfas silicone headlight on the handle bar, red cat eye light attached to the seat post, and a cheap aluminum rack attached to the back with a piece of nylon rope and a scrap of fabric. The paint on the top middle of the top tube is scuffed down to silver, about the side of a dime, and the paint on the back just above the rack is all scratched to hell where I let my chain lock rattle around after wrapping it around the seat post. (The Kryptonite chain lock was wrapped around the seat post at the time of theft.) There were also two hardware store p clamps I left on the rear after I’d detached an old rack.
The nut/bolt holding the handle bar in the stem is slightly rusty, and the black leather grip on the left hand side has scooted in about a quarter inch, and I couldn’t get it to scoot back out to the edge.
The seat is original, but the switch for the built-in light has broken off on the underside.
