    Sorry to hear that. Was the lock picked, or the chain cut?

    My guess is, some one is doing a paint job as we speak. Are there any marks other than serial number, that you could use for ID purposes? Scratches, dents, and the like?

    Well, Lindsay had probably the only two Garellis in all of Toronto and this one is missing it's muffler.

    A paint job can't hide either of those things!

    I've passed the pic on to my friends, we can always try.

    I remember it had a little crack where the horn is bolted to the frame...

    Hey Lindsay,
    Sorry about your ped, noticed a similar ped earlier, but had no idea that your was stolen until I read about it much later! Looked similar, but I don't think they are the same. Please keep us posted!! I've e-mailed you info to your gmail.
    It's a pity that your bike was stolen,

    GOOD NEWS<
    Just finished speaking to Lindsay, Her PRIDE AND JOY HAS BEEN FOUND and reunited to where it belongs. (Although saddlebags dissapeared)thought I'd share the good news to everyone who heart went out to Lindsay on what started out as a bad day
    PS. Her roommate should be congratulated for finding her ped.

    Lindsay you will now have to wear a hardened chain belt and one big lunking padlock with you everytime you leave your little babies by themselves.

    Thanks guys! I filally found it a that sketchy bike shop at Queen & Strachan. I had to wait for hours and deal with the police, BUT I got my moped back! Gotta admit though, I'm a little sad about those nice white saddlebags and their contents! Not to mention my license plate. BUT I have the bike back and that's the important thing!

    Lindsay,
    I'm glad to see that you did eventually get your ped back, meanwhile are there any discriminating features about your saddle bags that we should look out for just in case we come across it? (Although I don't think they will ever fit my streetmate, But you never know one of us may walk into a moped/scooter store and subject may reappear) Also, could you please share if the thieves broke or picked your locks and what types of locks/chains did you use? Such info may be helpful to prevent such another tradegy. You can share your thoughts at the next ride, we wouldn't want to give any ideas to the criminal minded.
    Manny,

    Yeah, what kind of chain/cable did you have on there Lindsay? I was curious about that too?

    One thing's for sure though, mopeds are so rare in Toronto at least it makes them easy to spot!

    Congratulations Lindsay. You have your baby back. Tell us all about it.
