Sorry, needed to make an edit:

It's true. Big thanks to everyone on the lookout.

Mike freelocked it and when in to get a burger. The lady who ran the massage joint next door to the fast food place saw a customer walk in with a helmet and saw the bike freelocked outside. Assumptions are the mother of many things. Turns out the lady was nice and grabbed the bike to bring it in securely and when the customer came out done with her massage she was confused and told the shop owner it wasn't hers.

Haha! Lady gave it to building security, they wanted nothing with it, she was about to post it up on CL, then she just set it back outside her shop.

I'm hanging out, Aaron rides by with a banker's box on his bars and shouts "40's bike is in front of 214 W Van Buren!" I high-tail it down there and the lady jumps out of the shop to apologize. Haha, 40 got there in no time and we all had a good laugh because things worked out.

Sidenote: Despite losing one of his favorites, Mike's spirits never swayed from fun and cracking jokes. When he found his bike was gone, he immediately went home to get a backup bike and was working hard all day! The dude is a real class act and a blast to work with. Thanks to everyone for getting on top of this so quickly. Now we just gotta get Dre's bike back!
