Stolen custom-built bike found

  • Print

Keith Dyck's "dream bike" is back.

The custom-crafted bicycle that took Dyck three years and cost him about $4,000 to create was returned late this afternoon by Steven Unruh, the man who said he found it over the weekend in a ditch off Highway 44.

Unruh contacted Dyck hours after the Free Press published the story about it being stolen early Saturday morning from the Winnipeg Folk Festival camp site where Dyck was sleeping in a tent.

Dyck agreed to meet Unruh at the Esso service station on Highway 44 near the junction of Highway 59 where the unique bike was returned just before 5 p.m.

Dyck thanked the Free Press for the recovery.

"This couldn't have happened without the Free Press," he said.

Dyck gave Unruh $200 as a reward.
