Bicycle Registration New Zealand

I’ve been pondering this very question for some time. “What would happen ‘IF’ my Bicycle,  my only form of transport were to be taken, run off with, or that grinding word…’STOLEN’. Some clown decides to cut the lock, make a break & walk off with my bike.

Well I put this forward to  CAN Cycling Action Network team just this past week. After researching the internet & asking the following questions I came up with some findings:

  1. How do I register my bicycle?
  2. Where do I register my bicycle?
  3. Who do I register my bicycle with in New Zealand?
  4. Where is a Site on the Internet who specialises with registration, lost, stolen, found bicycles here in New Zealand?
  5. What IF I just brought a new bicycle from a retail store, second hand mart.
    1. Does my new bicycle get registered on a national or international bicycle register data base?
    2. Does my new bicycle receive a personal id tag/sticker, etched serial number to the bike frame? Invisable micro dot applied application id number?
    3. Is New Zealand linked up to a internationally recognised bicycle registered data base?
  6. Do bicycle service agents throughout New Zealand do a standard check of the bicycle prior to servicing the bike, looking for either a personal id or serial number inputing this into a national recognised data base to find out if ‘I am’ the legal owner of the bike.

The Outcome
