this bike has gone full circle

the long complicated story watered down then boiled down here:

a guy bought a bike then sold it to another guy who bought it for his girlfriend then both of their bikes got stolen out if their garage then it ended up in the Seattle Police evidence room for two years before it was donated to Bike Works where it got my attention so I took a couple pictures of it and sent them to Alistair and asked him what he thought this bike was because it’s not your average Bike Works bike and Alistair ID’d it as a Kogswell from the photos and soon thereafter in an impressive it’s-a-small-Seattle-bike-world-after-all way he tracked down the owner who said thanks but no thanks because he didn’t want it back in that that’s-my-ex-girlfriend’s-bike way but the word got around and around to the original owner and he said I’ll take that back and he bought it as-is from Bike Works

the end for now

Pretty wild story Mark, but a good ending. You're doing important work down there at Bike Works. Keep it up!
