Mason Cycles shipment “stolen” from Italy to UK

A Mason Cycles shipment has been “stolen” from Italy to its HQ in the UK, the brand has said.

“It is with sadness that we must alert you of a stolen import of InSearchOf frames from Italy to our HQ in the UK,” said a statement on its website. “Please be vigilant and on the lookout for frame-only sales not through our webshop.

“The InSearchOf frame is not on the second-hand market yet, so any sales are most likely a stolen frame. Please alert us and spread the word if you do see anything suspicious.”

It continued: “A huge amount of time and work goes into every frame. The lead time is around three months per batch and every frame is crafted with care and attention.

“We are saddened and severely disappointed that this has happened.”

A batch of 13 frames went missing on its way from Italy to the UK on a TNT shipment. Each frame will have a serial number stamped under the BB in the format: B (Size) 07.

The boxes will not have any Mason branding on them and they look like this, behind the ISO frame:
