For the price of a coffee, you can help us build up our reward program piggy bank to aid in recovering stolen bikes and put crooks out of business!
Innocent Purchasers of Stolen Bikes
Since commencing the Australian Bike Vault - Stolen Bicycles Australia, we have had over 10 stolen bikes returned to their owners as a result of honest and considerate individuals and second-hand dealers checking our database and handing stolen bikes over to police.
We want to reward/compensate innocent purchasers of stolen bikes, who check our database and hand identified stolen bikes into police and nominate the person or business where they purchased the bike from.
A large percentage of the bikes we have assisted the police to recover is a direct result of the cycling communities help to identifying and reporting suspect stolen bikes when they are advertised for sale. We want to reward the Good Samaritans who support our cause and actively look for and report stolen bikes when they come up for sale.
