An Oregon man turned an opportunity for a good deal into a good deed. When a transient offered to sell the man a three-speed Linus roadster for $40, he knew it was probably stolen, but he bought it anyway. Instead of riding off on the new bike, the man realized it was an expensive bicycle and saw a sticker for a local cycle shop on the frame. He took it to the shop, and they were able to use their computer to trace the owner, who happened to be missing a bike. The owner of the repair shop did not identify the man who bought the two-wheeler but said the owner was surprised to get his bicycle back. Jeremy Scholz, owner of Clever Cycles said, “All the pieces were intact and he had pretty much given up on it.” — Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
