Police in south London have released CCTV footage of a £30,000 Harley Davidson being stolen from a private car park in Surrey Quays back in February.
The video which can be seen below, shows a moped and pillion passenger drive into a private car park at Copenhagen Court, Pell Street, SE8, before using an angle grinder to cut three chains securing the bike. They then proceed to push the bike out of the gates, where a second moped with two suspects kept the secure gates open once a resident had driven out of the car park.
Both mopeds then pushed the motorbike away in the direction of Lower Road and Evelyn Street. The suspect who pushed the stolen motorbike is described as wearing a black helmet, dark jacket with a white triangle on the back, black trousers and black shoes.
The other suspect who rode the moped into the car park is described as wearing a black helmet, dark jacket with a white triangle on the back, black trousers and black shoes. He was seen wearing a green rucksack.
There are no descriptions of the two suspects on the second moped who kept the gates open. No arrests have been made.
PC Mike White, from Lewisham CID, said: "The owner is obviously very upset to have his motorbike stolen. "We are keen to identify the males in the CCTV footage so we can speak to them about the incident. This is a very distinctive motorbike and I would ask anyone who has been offered such a bike to buy or who has seen one for sale to contact police.
"We would also urge anyone who witnessed the incident to contact us."
Anyone who recognises him or has any information is urged to contact PC White on 07788 916864 or contact Lewisham Police via 101.

Seems that these bike thieves are getting more creative with how to nick our beloved bikes.
The gang of thieves on scooters used a fire extinguisher to attack the 58-year-old man, before knocking him to the floor during an attempted theft in Ilford.
