Someone made off with the kid's bike last week at North. It was a green stunt bike we picked up last year at the police auction for a few dollars. It was locked with a pretty good sized Master lock. They didn't cut the cable, but smashed the combination lock.
Since we purchased the bike at a police auction there's a fair chance that it was stolen once before. I wonder if we'll have another chance to buy it at this year's auction?
The police auction this year is May 17th at the station on Delafield St. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. and bidding starts at 9:00. Last year there were way more bikes than bidders and many were going for a dollar or not even sold at all. It's a great deal for large families especially, but anyone needing just one bike part can buy a whole bike cheaper than a new tire, seat, etc.
