Bike seat fetish?

Could be difficult for the owners to identify which saddle is theirs?

It's a thing the teenagers do and it's being going for years.

With the seats missing from the bikes, the police had nothing to go on I guess. But they'll probably be able to get fingerprints or something now.

I would have applauded it if they were taken from illegally parked bicycles outside my station :/

Seriously, don't kids have anything better to do? lol

StormR - Har!

Magnus - I'll bet your station doesn't provide free or low cost ( 100 yen/hour after the first 2 hours ) bicycle parking.

Since the seats were all lined up could the thief had been an OCD sufferer?
