This is not only in Obs! Searching for solutions came across worldwide complaints, in Sweden a resident used super glue. Mark your wiper blades, hubcaps etc with your address at least they may get returned if still stolen.

Got stolen from Bowden Road please share to care and keep your eyes open in case you spot a similar scooter.
A shout-out to all other scooter owners in Obs and elsewhere: there is a large and growing scooter theft problem in Cape Town. I come across so many scooters that are just standing somewhere in public, unchained, some even without the steering lock applied. It's easy to become complacent, and chaining your bike up is a schlep, but it beats the suck of arriving back to find empty pavement where you parked. And it happens quickly.
