Damn shame......when the crack head that stole them realizes that no one wants them or even knows what they are...the bikes will be tossed in some lake or dumped in a field somewhere or just left in some alley where the local kids will disassemble them.
Hopefully the cops will by chance see them before that happens.

or they may never be seen again. Someone who steals bikes like those tend to know what they are and they could spend the next 50 years in some private collection gathering dust...or parted out on ebay.
