Stolen Cokers

The UK has approx. 15 Coker owners, Four of us got together today for a ride in
the Sedgefield area. The ride was great , what happened at lunchtime was not.
We stopped for lunch at a Pub in Fishburn, chaining the 4 Cokers and 2 MTBs
together in the CarPark. Between 2:15 and 3pm all 6 cycles were stolen.

Oh F**K

These are probably the first Cokers ever to be stolen,

Please Please, If someone try’s to sell you a LARGE wheel unicycle or four, It
may well be one of these stolen ones. If the seller can not ride it, is not
North Hants Tyre Co or if the Uni in question is one of the ones described
below . Contact the Police and ask to talk to someone at Newton Aycliffe Police
Station about stolen unicycles.

A picture of the 6 cycles chained up is at

Coker 1 - Roger Davies’s 36 inch wheel, green and white Miayta air saddle,
barend brake, speedo, light fittings and man eating yellow pedals.

Coker 2 - Sarah Miller’s 36 inch wheel, blue and white Miayta air saddle, alu
pedals, one light bracket, lots of reflective stickers. The seat post on this
one has been hacksawed short and not filed smooth.

Coker 3 - John Marshall’s 36 inch wheel, black Sem air saddle with red tape,
with Miayta seatpost extension as well as the short coker seat post. Black
plastic pedals.

Coker 4 - Miark’s 36 inch wheel, black Viscount saddle, shaun the sheep valve
cap and swiss flag stickers on each fork. Alu pedals.

All the cokers are chrome framed. All are dearly loved and are badly
missed already…

Also nicked were a Claude Butler blue and green, 18 inch gents frame MTB
and a Giant Box One blue and yellow full sus MTB. These too are dearly
loved and missed.

Re: Stolen Cokers

I am sooo saddened to hear this news. Call your tv stations, newspapers, give
them video coverage, photos. It has to be newsworthy! Also post to rec.juggling
and your local clubs.

I hope this was a joke, if so, a bad one.

Good Luck! Unicycle Lady http://users.aol.com/unilady/

Major bummer…

Do Cokers have serial numbers on them, and if so did you record them?

Keep an eye on Ebay.com

Re: Stolen Cokers

Hey, Gosh, that’s terrible. I feel for you. I have been lazily looking to buy a
big-wheel unicycle. I’m not even close to the UK, but if I see anything like
yours, I’ll definitely give you a shout.

Thank to tammy, rick steve and every one else who has writen to express sypathy
. Cokers do not have frame numbers unfortunatly, nor is there a bit solid enough
for postcade stamping ( Zip code to usa readers) . Ebay will be watched but it’s
not really taken off in the UK yet.

The local media are being contacted today by Roger. They are likley to run the
story as Roger was on the local TV only on friday with the story of his crosss
Minesota ride, he flys out first thing tuesday I think. This means that the
local area is full of folk who have seen him on a the coker on TV and around
town. maybe the sob story about messing up a charity ride will have some effect.
He is really gonna miss having his own one for the ride, after you have
customised your coker no one elses feels quite the same. There is a big gap in
my shed now and I’ll be back onto the muni for riding to work, Rocket I guess
will be back on two wheels for his commute, the chap in Guildford will have to
fly the flag for coker commuting in the SE on his own for a little while.
getting insurance and stuff sorted won’t be quick and then getting the unis
imported takes a while… Ho Hum…life goes on.
