ANOTHER Bike Stolen

Once again the scum of the streets have stolen another bike. This unique Raleigh Shopper belongs to my girlfriend Katie and was stolen in broad daylight from the front of Fratton Station on the 5th of June between the hours of 8.30am and 5.30pm. It’s a distinctive copper bronze colour with a Ye Olde Bike Shoppe sticker on the frame. They cut through a Kyroptonite lock and must have been on the prowl. If you have any info at all please contact us at contact@strong-island.co.uk.

If you would like more information about how you can get your bicycle security marked then you can do so by contacting your local Neighbourhood Policing Team HERE. Alternatively you can register your bike with schemes such as Immobilise or Bike Register.

    What scum bags! It probably isn’t much consolation but I think I have a bike exactly the same… genuine early ’80s It’s in my parent’s shed (unless they have chucked it out!?!). If you’re making an insurance claim then we could see if it’s still in the shed?? Just realised this might sound like a completely dodgy (or mad!) post but it’s completely genuine, I’m guessing you loved that bike and are really gutted to lose it this way…

    Sadly it is why I have a brompton as no 2 bike for round portsmouth, it stays with me.

    Catherine, that is sooooo lovely. At least there’s one sweetheart in the world for every scum!

  6. Awww, thanks Catherine. That’s so nice of you 🙂 I’ll drop you an email. Scumbags take note of how to be nice and totally unselfish like Catherine.
