The red Indian Deluxe, which looks like Pee-wee Herman's dream ride, was made between 1914 and 1917, according to sheriff's officials:
The bike, said to be in "excellent condition," was stolen March 4, according to a sheriff's statement.
But detectives today distributed the photo you see here, hoping that someone might recognize it, turn in the thief and facilitate its return.
(The two-wheeled vehicle also seems to be celebrated in a set of Flickr photos, here).
Says Deputy Michael Rust:
The exact value of the bicycle is not known, however it is priceless to its owner.
