Stolen From Silk Road Cycles: Bicycle

When I see things such as this I cannot help but think of what a very famous bank robber (and Greenpointer) Slick Willie Sutton once told a reporter when queried about his avocation:

…because that’s where the money is*

In any case, you know what to do readers: if you see this bicycle please contact the folks at Silk Road Cycles— and the 94th Precinct: (718) 349 8234.
