I'd really like to get this bike to it's owner. It has been loved, and I'm certain the owner misses it.
I should also mention that I took it after twenty minutes because some sketchy dudes walked up and started talking about taking it. My wife was with me, so I said that it was hers and went home. I wasn't just trying to get a free ride, and I'm not interested in any reward other than the joy of finding the rightful owner of this bike.
Could have been stolen, or stolen and changed hands a bunch of times before being left.
Did you search here:
Yeah, I did.
I suggest putting up a flyer there (ask first), and let the bartenders know (Gigi, especially), in case someone comes and asks about it.
Thanks for making such a conscientious effort to find the owner.
It might be worth your while to set up a google alert for "stolen [make] [model] Chicago."
