'Priceless' Indian Deluxe Bicycle Stolen in Lancaster

'Priceless' Indian Deluxe Bicycle Stolen in Lancaster
LASD

A nearly 100-year-old bicycle said to be quite valuable and rare was stolen from its owner's home in Lancaster, authorities said.

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.
