Police Appeal After Distinctive Motorbike Is Stolen

Friday July 5 2013

Have you seen this bike? Have you seen this bike?

POLICE are appealing for help to locate a missing motorbike that is alleged to have been stolen in Barnsley.

At 4am on June 14,  officers received reports of a burglary at Autoshine on Lambra Road. It is believed that the locks on the gate have been attacked and removed to gain access to the yard.

The offenders have then gained access to the workshop area where a large quantity of Snap On tools, cash and a Suzuki GSX-R 1000 motorcycle have been taken.

The motorcycle is described as having unique paintwork in the Lucky Strike racing colours and also shows the signature of motorcycle star Barry Sheene airbrushed along the tank.

A number of other vehicles have also been found to be damaged within the premises.

Officers would like to speak to people who may know the whereabouts of the motorcycle or have recently been approached to buy some Snap On tools.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police on 101 of call Crimestoppers anonymously quoting incident number 244 of 14 June 2013.

Possibly zooming up and down the fields behind our house we have made several complaints to our councillor but get the standard reply.....probably find 60% of stolen bikes in this way but they just cant be bothered well I told the councillor someone will get injured before long and in Rotherham a couple of days ago a 4 year old girl was run down on the main road and is in hospital critical. Bet Rotherham council and SY Police are interested in off road bikers now in that area!!! Sorry for rant and hope the owner gets there bike back soon.

What's so important about this bike? My 18yr old brothers bike was stolen, the police didn't do anything about his, may not av been as expensive as this one but it still ment something to him, now he's been without a bike for months, as he can't afford another..

Insurance Gem? Either your brother had it and the theft is covered, or he didn't have insurance and wasn't riding it (legally anyway) .
And Ian, are you for real? 60% of stolen bikes end up on that same field? I You don't know much about stolen vehicle trading do you? Daft man.

I don't call the police now as they don't come out. I'm sick to death of the idiot low life's taking property that clearly doesn't belong to them. If the police won't do anything then I will. So please all you idiots out there I've some expensive gear in my shed that's all been paid for by me by working 12 hour weeks. Come and get it but I won't be responsible for the actions I take when I catch you lol

It was a dig at the Police and Local councillors about illegal off road bikers Sam and not meant to be literally, Daft person.

No Dave its not a police mans bike, it is a local business owners bike, during the break in they also stole hundreds of pounds worth of tools which are required for the owner and his staff to do their job. Due to this robbery not only was their damage to the building but loss of revenue and jobs. Theft is getting bad in Barnsley and should not be tolerated no matter the value or quality.

I doubt for a minute this bike will be flying up and down fields! Maybe a track somewhere. We race motorcycles and know people that do so I will keep my eyes and ears open. People can't have anything these days without the scumbags thinking they an take what they want!
