13th February Olmo Fixed gear

I moved to London a few weeks ago and had my first day of work today. At 9 am I locked my bike to a lamp post on Duke Street right next to the Selfridges staff entrance. Once I left for home at around 4 pm it was gone. No lock left or anything. I had a late 80's early 90's olmo fixie conversion. I'm completely pissed off and miserable because I had repainted the frame, gotten rid of all the unnecessary brazings (bottle cage bolt holes, gear shifter places, rear derailleur hanger etc..) and even filled in the bottle cage brazing holes. It was like a my own kid or something like that. I have been building it up for about 3 years now and I finally got it into a configuration that I was happy with about a week ago. The bike is very distinctive and there will not be another in london. If someone sees someone riding it then they have my permission to kick their teeth in, take the bike and call me at 07521 321360 (the name's Alvi).
