Two vintage bikes that were restoration projects of the owner's father have been stolen and a huge public appeal has gone out to get them back.
The bikes, a 1950 Vincent Comet Racing Special (Grey Flash specification) and a 1952 BSA Bantam, but could be worth up to £50,000 but have priceless sentimental value as they were re-built by Steve Davies' dad before he died from motor neurone disease last year.
Davies, of Threapwood near Malpas, is devastated after thieves took ‘everything of value’ from an outhouse but most sadly the two 1950s models.
“We’re absolutely devastated as the bikes have huge sentimental value. My late father spent 45 years building and maintaining these bikes and gave them to me and my son to enjoy before he died last year. We’re appealing to anyone who may know about them to either discreetly return them or to contact the local police," he said.
People with any information relating to this or other thefts are encouraged to contact their local police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
