From a bike blog I follow:

"If you know someone who owns a Rivendell Betty Foy in the DC/Northern VA area, please respond here. There is an obviously stolen “antique” Betty Foy being offered for sale."

Here's the link: http://letsgorideabike.com/blog/2011/07/attn-betty-foys-in-the-dc-area/

Just passing this on.

I'm curious as to why people are up in arms claiming that bike's stolen. While it's obviously not "antique" as advertised, it's only a $1k frameset from Rivendell, and they're asking $2k for it. Doesn't set off flags for me.

That's easily a bike someone could have put out at a yard sale thinking it was just an old bike and some flipper got it that knew what it was worth.
