The black bike had been reported stolen from the Perry Barr area in February 2017.
Today police spotted it in Brookside, being driven by a man with no licence or insurance.
The bike itself was seized by police and the rider reported.
Police said the rider had bought the bike for £400, and warned: "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is."
