A Question About the Mean Streets of Interim Mayor Ed Lee’s San Francisco: When To Harvest An Stolen/Abandoned BikeThursday, October 16th, 2014
Bike thievery is an occupation in San Francisco, America’s Capital of Bike Thieves, East of Manhattan.
The wheels and the handlebar are gone, but there are a lot of pieces I could use in my junk drawer.
And this rig isn’t even locked up.
IMO, it would be kosher to harvest this ride, to profit, in a way, from bike thievery…

San Francisco’s Most Famous Car of 2014: A Mirror-Finish Aston Martin Rapide, “Because Eff You, That’s Why”Wednesday, June 11th, 2014
[UPDATE: Word on the street is that the driver lives in The Avenues, where he has a rep for driving too fast out there. Word on the street is that the driver has a “neckbeard.”]
I seen this $200k+ Aston Martin Rapide all over town – I seen it I seen it! In the Financh, the SoMA, the Fillmore, pretty much all over the 1/8th of a pie slice that is northeastern SF.
(This ride has now officially stolen the thunder of that Kandy-Kolored Gold-Flake Streamline Baby Lambo used as a daily driver(!) by a CCSF junior college student.)
So, why the mirror finish, dahling? Well, per Arlen of Flickr, “because fuck you, that’s why.”
And, has this garish Aston been registered in California yet? Well, maybe, but if it has a CA license plate, it’s certainly not mounted on the back where it should be, and that’s odd, because it’s been in town for a while, oh well.
Who can solve this mystery?
As seen being driven, poorly, in the Upper Fillmore area…

So yeah, the chain and the padlock worked, but you’re going to need some way of keeping the wheels attached, when the freaks come out, at night.

In mitigation, this ride wasn’t all that expensive to begin with…
