Posted in the Stolen Bikes section on Bentrider Online forum. Smile

It has a white frame with a black boom. The original, low-racer model, not the later mid-racer.
The boom has a derailleur post on it.

Kevin sent me a picture of the machine when it was new.  I think that it has a pivoting steering tiller now.

.........READ MORE ?
UPDATE AND GOOD NEWS 

Dear Kevin

I'm delighted to say that my bike has turned up, abandoned about 400 yards away from where it was stolen, in a dark corner. It seems completely undamaged.

Thank you very much indeed for your spreading of the word about its theft. It is good to know how well organised the recumbent world is!

With thanks

James

BIG THANKS TO ALL FORUM MEMBERS THE RAPTOBITE HAS  BEEN RECOVERED HURRAY Big smile

Good result (except I assume the thief probably still has his testicles intact...)
