Owner Keith Berkoben says, "The triumphant return of Captain America. Found on craigslist in Santa cruz with the help of ifttt filters. Guy was more than happy to hand it over when I showed up with the five-oh.
"This was a classic case of the SF bike theft machine: Somebody steals a bike in SF (opportunistic theft). The bike is quickly fenced (probably for cheap) to a third party who either a) chops it and builds the parts into other bikes b) fences it again for a profit or c) sells it directly. In this case the bike was sold at the San Jose flea market where the craigslist seller bought it and tried to craigslist it.""
