This is the longest of long shots.
I’m trying to track down a rare (in the UK) Miyata bike that was stolen, around 6 years ago one evening from outside the Bull & Last by Hampstead Heath. Must have been May/June 2014.
Not Koga Miyata. It’s in gun metal grey with red decals. Pretty sizeable at 63cms, partial Shimano 600 arabesque group set.
Basically, it’s a very rare and unique bike that would stand out to those who know (anyone on LFGSS) and therefore thought there might be a chance someone has seen it. Would love to hear, so if anyone has, please let me know.
