New York Public Library, Rare Book Room, De Bry Collection, New York.

“New bicycle section on http://www.missionstation.org to track reported stolen and recovered stolen bicycles. Send us your feedback!”
But sadly, the Recovered Bicycle Database only has one entry right now – it’s a black Specialized road bike that I’m sure you’ll recognize in a second, if it’s yours.
“For Information: Inspector Pomatto #2071 Mission Investigations (415) 558-5400”

Thanks, Captain Corrales!
