PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — A $4200 bicycle was stolen from a Southeast Portland bike shop after a potential customer asked to take it for a test ride.
Rich Fein, the owner of Cynergy E-Bikes, told KOIN 6 News a man came in and asked to test drive the E-Motion 650 B Jumper, the most expensive bike in the store. He provided a driver’s license for the test drive.
But he never returned to the store at 3822 SE Powell Boulevard.
The thief did not get one important item — the key.
“It can be ridden for a short period of time but it is an electric-assisted bike, and in order to charge it you need the key,” Fein said.
The investigation continues.
