West Seattle Crime Watch: Stolen motorcycle, bicycle

Two theft reports in West Seattle Crime Watch this afternoon. First, Ryan‘s motorcycle was taken:

Stolen near 16th and Henderson SW: Honda CBR 600 F3 1995 Sportsbike

IT IS VERY NOTICEABLE, it’s a Purple, Black, Neon Yellow, with a “yellow windshield” and a Custom Exhaust, last known location was going East on Henderson street sw, it was taken by a white guy about 6 feet, wearing blue jeans, white sweatshirt and a black backpack, in his early 30s. This happened yesterday around 3 pm. LP is 9B6727

Andrew‘s bicycle was stolen from the 2400 block of 54th Place SW:

I found my bike stolen from my apartment complex this morning. It was locked up in the complex’s bike rack in the back parking lot. The bike lock was cut and left behind.

The bike is a Kona Ute, brown in color, with large orange bags. It’s the extended cargo-bike frame. The grips have been replaced with rubber grips that look like cork. There is a bottle holder on the handlebars along with a Kona bell. The kickstand is missing both it’s rubber feet and there’s some chain wear on the right kickstand leg. It has Continental CityContact tires, front disc brakes, and a wood deck on the cargo area. Unfortunately I never wrote down the serial number from it, but it’s pretty distinctive and wasn’t produced in large numbers.

If you see either one, call 911.

Side note: This month’s West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting will be Tuesday, October 16th, 7 pm, at Southwest Precinct, and president Richard Miller says they’ll have a guest from the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

    That’s a unique fireblade. I drive around west seattle constantly and I always look at motorcycles. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for it.

    I look at bikes, and that Kona is pretty unique; I too will keep my eyes peeled. What kind of lock did they break to get it?

    RE: The bicycle– Often times the store where you bought the bike has record of the serial number, if that helps.

    As I was getting on my motorcycle in front of the Salvation Army center Thursday night, a kid about 12 yrs old came up and told me to be careful, as he saw someone steal a motorcycle that afternoon.

    Sounds like you may have already spoken to him, since you have a description, but I thought I’d mention it. The kid said he knew the owner (presumably you), and that he told his older brother but didn’t call the police.

    from another website, it looks like the motorcycle was recovered. I’d love to hear anything about how that went down.

      well, through the miracle of Google, I found the “other website” – motorcycle riders’ board. He wrote that it was found four blocks away. I have pinged him to ask for any more info.

    Awesome !! Fellow motorcyclists unite once again to help each other.

    Thanks for keeping your eyes out for the Ute! Unfortunately I bought it second hand and forgot to write down the serial number.

Sorry, comment time is over.
