Thousands of stolen bikes are recovered each year in Australia

The police nationally recover thousands of stolen bikes each year in Australia.  Unfortunately, many of these bikes end up being sold at public auction as their owners cannot be identified.   There are many reasons why this occurs, the main culprit being lacking bike identification and ownership recording.
