  • Any course missing a basket?

    I get curious when I see an ad like this.

    I doubt this guy is a basket thief, but a Google search of his phone number reveals numerous Craigslist postings. My guess is that he's RE-selling stuff that he's bought cheap from other people -- some of which may very well be stolen.

      I saw that too and got suspicious. Haven't heard of any courses missing a basket though.

        Wasn't a basket stolen at Adair recently?

          What ever came of that one from Leverich? Did it turn out not to be some guy in the Midwest who was selling it from a location in Gresham?

            Yauger was missing a basket after one of their tournaments this summer.

              It's a little hard to follow the guy's writing, but it sounds like he's selling the top and middle of a basket, with NO POLE. So, to be more specific, have any courses recently had their baskets stripped down to nothing but the central pole?

                I remember in grade school they wrote (engraved) our names on our bike locks. Maybe this should be done with baskets. Or how cars have VIN's maybe baskets need BINs.

                  that is surely a stolen basket....whether he STOLE it or he bought it from the THIEF it is a stolen basket......

                  No F-ing way you get a basket without a pole unless it is stolen......fvcking tweekers

                        It wouldn't be a bad idea to braze the three main pieces together. Anyone can cut a nut off a bolt, even if they've been made hard to wrench apart by rounding the bolt heads and nuts. Zinc is a good flux for bronze and it wouldn't be hard to sweat a little brazing rod into each joint. This could be done on the spot with an oxy/acetylene torch. If the whole basket got lifted, the bronze job would be an identifier.

                            You can pick up a quick set of steel stamps, grab hammer and said stamps and stamp the steel with whatever you want to identify the baskets. We do this at work all the time to stamp HIN numbers on boats.

                              sladen park in eugene had three baskets at it that were stolen. they were mach new 2's though, but for someone that doesn't know baskets well, this could easily be misinterpreted.
