Ste Burke from Liverpool is being praised after he purchased a stolen $1,700 bike for $100 so he could give it back to its owner.
He then shared a photo of the bike on Twitter along with the caption: “Has anyone had their bike stolen? Just bought this for £80 and it’s got a bike lock on it.
“Apparently it’s from the Crosby area. Bought it so I can get it to back to the right owner. I know it’s a £1,350 bike and I’d be heartbroken if it was me. Give us a shout.”
Thanks to the help of thousands of retweets and comments, the true owner of the bike was found.
“Was messaged on here by someone and it ended up being the fellas who’s bike it was,” Ste shared the amazing news.
“He had the key to the bike lock and all the paperwork to go with it. Ended up being from dovecot. Said his house got had off two days ago and he’d saved up and spent £1,250 on the bike last year.
“Said his house has been had off but he’s made up that he’s managed to get his bike back, so happy days. It’s in the right hands now.”
Ste received thousands of praises even from popular people. Stormzy wrote on Twitter: “Top man” and actor Raft Little also wrote: “What an absolute mint thing to do and top bloke.”
In an interview with Metro, he said: “He thanked me as his home was recently burgled and it’s a bit of good news for him through the hard time he’s going through.
“He told me he got paid on Friday and could he send me the money then and I said no. I told him I didn’t feel right taking money off a man who has just had his house burgled.”
And because of his good deed, Halfords offered Ste a bike of his own!
