Six bicycles stolen from KirkLee last night

Posted Mar 22 2011 12:37pm

I got a call from my fellow frame builder Brad Cason at KirkLee this morning with some bad news. Someone broke in and has made off with six of his bikes. A couple of them were from his booth at NAHBS this year and one was featured in Bicycling Magazine. Please read below and keep a lookout for anyone trying to sell a KirkLee or one of the other bikes. Thank!

Six bicycles were stolen from KirkLee (1006 Brentwood St., Austin, Texas) during the night of March 21st. Please contact us at 512-371-9661 or if you have any information on the whereabouts of these bicycles. Click on the photo to view a larger version of the bicycle.
