Heartbroken reader Luke has been in touch asking me to put out an appeal to trace his pride and joy – a KTM 85sx motocross motorcycle – which was stolen from the garden of his home on the Hussey Estate, Brownhills in the small hours of Thursday Morning.
I need your help ASAP my motocross bike has got stolen it is a KTM 85sx bigwheel 2006.
I live in Brownhills on the Hussey Estate – the bike went missing at 2:30am this morning (Thursday February 12th 2015) and they went from my garden, and through the clay pit and come out by the Swan Pub on the Pelsall Road.
The pub have the CCTV footage of the bike heading towards Pelsall.
The main thing you can tell it is mine by now is the clutch leaver on the left hand side had a bit snapped off it has got orange plastics all over, It’s orange with a black frame and it’s got Exel Taskago wheels on it, which are chrome.
The bike has a chrome exhaust pipe at the front and it’s also got a gold rear drive sprocket on the back wheel.
The front brake cable has become as it’s missing a bolt so the wire will touch the tyre some times.
Please please help me find this bike, just to let you know the Police have already been informed.
Thank you very much for your time
This is the latest motorbike in a series to go missing locally of late. I can’t help wondering if they’re being nicked to order.
If someone you know has just inexplicably tooled up on a bike, check it out, please – after all, it might be your stuff they steal next.
