Stolen Tandem

I'm forwarding this from the Southwark cyclist's list, please pass it on in case the thieves try to sell it. (no the bike is not ours)

On the 28th Oct in the night around 1:30 my bike was stolen in the
Islington area.
It was parked at the back of the company building and locked with a
quite thick chain to the bike frame. According to the CCTV camera, it
took the thief couple minutes to unlock it and take it away.

Here is YouTube link:

I used to think that the fact that it's a tandem bike will discourage
potential thieves, as it's easy recognizable.

I'm still hoping I will be able to find it, as it used to give me a
lot of joy to cycle during summer months to Richmond Park, or Kingston
upon Thames with my wife.
I'll really miss that.

It's a Viking Saratoga tandem bike and, please find below the link to
