My advice to you, Is if you find this bike for sale, dont get the police involved. Get it back you're self and do whatever needs to be done.We had 2 Sundays stolen just over a year ago - wellington-stolen-ironhorse-sunday-stolen-t102686.html?hilit=stolen%20sunday and about 6 months later, one appeared up on trademe, We got the police involved and they were useless. We had to call them to get updates( whilst having them dodge our calls and avoid us), wait for them to stuff around doing god knows what, whilst the police were doing f-all it got sold on, and then i had to do all the work to find where the bike had gone.
I managed to get a number for the guy who brought the bike, and gave that to the cops along with the txt convo i had with the guy who brought it, admitting he had brought the exact bike off trademe..
By the time the cops got around to viewing the bike, the forks and brakes had been changed. Even though the cops admitted that some of the parts on the bike were ours (at least half the bike), and the pictures we had showed identical scratches and imperfections to the ones the police took of the bike. End result was that we got told that the police could no longer do anything and we ended up getting nothing back. The whole fiasco took around a month from beginning to end.
If i end up finding my polished sunday up for sale, i will be going to collect it myself and will not be doing things by the book.

Hope you track it down and get it back,
and if you do locate it, and choose to involve the cops i hope you have much better service and outcome than we did....

Don't know the history, but its not a regular on the south star here in Rotorua, which I would have thought a Hamilton based bike / rider would be
