Not much left

 
Posted by Picasa


The police have placed a warning notice to remove what's left of this bicycle from it's parking space or else. I'm not sure the owner really cares anymore.

Maybe a joke gone bad?

Clytie said...

Well ... at least no one can steal it by riding it away!!!

Too funny, Lois - great catch!

Halcyon said...

I doubt it's of much use to anyone without the tires!

Jacob said...

Well, put a couple of tires on it and you're good to go! Better hurry, though.

Doesn't look like the owner cares - Get rid of it! LoL!

I have seen this before from European posts where people pull up to a proper bike parking spot and lock their bikes only when they came back the tires are both gone. Frustrating.

How good of them, why am I not surprised?

So much resembling a skeleton! So rather sad really!

Oh no! Every once in a while, I see the remnants of a bicyle still locked up to its post. Usually, though, the bike is old and rusy and in horrible condition. It's kind of funny about the police notice. I doubt the owner has been recently.

Lois, this is funny and sad all at the same time. What happened to 'Thou shall not steal:(

James said...

That's a shame.I guess it could be worse. When my bike was stolen many decades ago all they left was a cable and a cut lock.

Kaori said...

Or maybe the owner just doesn't recognize it as theirs ;D

Oh my.
This happened to a bike «Louis» had locked up at a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) Station. That's the bad news. The worse news was it was done right in front of the agent's booth. The unbelievably bad news is it was done in daylight at one of the busiest BART stations in the system...

A sad state of affairs, I'd say. Who will take it away? LOL MB

Bonjour sweet Lois and sweet Gracie!
I lent a picture of Gracie from your blog to make a video clip with Luna's friends.
I just publish it in Luna's blog today.
I hope you don't mind.
hugs
Léia ( and Luna )
Thanks so much for your friendship!

A very common sight here, unfortunately. Police just cracked a gang of bicycle thieves, which were selling stolen bikes for as little as 12 dollars, one street away from here.

I don't think the owner will be back either.
