Title: Stolen Bikes, lifted from another forum.
Post by: A10 JWO on 15.11. 2017 15:26

STOLEN: A VINTAGE MOTORCYCLE COLLECTION.
From a Norfolk Section member.
Eleven machines were taken from a property in Norfolk.
1930 BSA Sloper.
1968 Bantam Sports.
1927 AJS
1926 Coventry Eagle
1952 Bantam.
1946 Ariel Twin Port.
1948 BSA ZB.
1914 New Hudson.
1933 Francis Barnett Lapwing
1929 Ariel 250 LH
1952 Ariel VHA.
A 4 wheel car trailer (chained to a concrete yard) was also taken. The robbery was quite sophisticated. An electric chainsaw was used to cut a hedge back to get a vehicle on the site.
If you hear anything at all about machines answering these descriptions, please inform the police.

I am going to insure my current restoration on the strength of this. The wheels alone came to a small fortune. Keep your bikes safe lads.

 *sad2* Oh no ! That is really bad news . I hope they get caught offloading the stuff. Probably someone who has been there / knew him and what he has . I could fathom 1 bike going but a whole collection ....this sounds like a "stolen to order " job. BAS*ARDS ....
