Prove it's Your Child's Bike

We just bought some new bikes for the kids. We put a picture of each child inside the handle bar grips before putting them on. If a bike is stolen and later recovered, you have proof it is your child's bike.

Use an electric pencil to engrave the bicycle either on a fender or the handlebars with "if this bike is lost and found please return, please return to the owner and use whatever information you feel is safe to engrave on the bicycle. This happened to my family, we were on vacation and the bicycles for our children were stolen at the campground, the bicycles were found and because of the engraving on the bicycle, we got the bicycles returned from halfway across the state where we reside.


You might ask your local authorities about what information you should engrave on the bicycle in case of a loss.

A photo inside the handle grips is a good idea to prove it's your child's bike if for example another child "stole" the bicycle and it turns up a block away. But I'd like to suggest that you also copy down the serial number of the bicycle and store it in a safe place. If the police become involved, they will ask for the serial number. Perhaps even take a photo of the serial number. This site shows you where to find the serial number: http://www.utex  find_serial.html

I take the seat off the bike and put in my business card then replace the seat. I was able to get back both bikes that were "borrowed."
