Biker Appeals For Return Of Two Classic Bikes Restored By Late Father


Steve Davies, from Threapwood is appealing for the return of two classic restored 1950s bikes given to him by his late father.

The bikes, a 1950 Vincent Comet Racing Special (Grey Flash specification) and a 1952 BSA Bantam, could be worth up to £50,000 but Steve has said their real value is their connection to his father.

Steve’s late father had lovingly built and restored them before his death from motor neurone disease last year.

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.
