£10,000 reward for the return of two stolen motorcycles

Most of us have had something stolen from us at some point in our lives, and no matter the value of the item, if it’s something you hold close to your heart it’s bloody upsetting when it’s taken from you.

It really rattles me when I hear of anyone’s things being stolen from them, in fact, I personally think that all of the thieves should be rounded up and dumped on a desert island somewhere where there’s only one turkey left for them to fight over. Rant over.

In the early hours of Tuesday 29 August, at around 3am, two very special classic motorcycles were stolen from the Clarke International offices in Epping, Essex. An immaculate 1952 Vincent 1000 Rapide and a unique MV Agusta, built in 1974 by the race workshop for Phil Read, winner of eight world championship GP titles.

As you can imagine, the company are extremely keen to get both of the motorcycles returned to them and therefore are offering a whopping £10,000 reward for information leading to their return.
