National Motorcycle Museum Robbed: Reward $
Thursday, August 28, 2014
England's National Motorcycle Museum was broken into last night. The perpetrators trashed the place and made off with a bunch of motorcycling history, from trophies to TT replicas.
I’ve had my hackles up since I read about this on Twitter this morning. Some miscreants broke into England’s National Motorcycle Museum
last night, trashed the place, and stole a bunch of irreplaceable trophies and TT replicas. Obviously the perpetrators were looking for items they could turn a quick buck on because many of the other motorcycles in the museum’s collection are worth exponentially more. Regardless, it’s a travesty, so we wanted to post this info provided by the National Motorcycle Museum’s Facebook page to help spread the word to our international audience in hopes the hoodlums will be caught and the moto-treasures returned.

At around 11:00 p.m. last evening (8/27) the inner foyer of the National Motorcycle Museum was broken into and a large amount of the Museum’s trophies and TT replicas were stolen. Each of the Museum’s trophy cabinets was smashed causing substantial damage to the displays.
Many of the trophies and TT replicas have little “scrap” value but are unique and irreplaceable as part of this countries Motorcycling Heritage.
Because of the historical importance of these trophies the National Motorcycle Museum will be offering a substantial award of £20,000 for information which leads to the safe recovery of these important artifacts.
Anyone with any relevant information is asked to contact West Midlands Police or the National Motorcycle Museum on 01675 443311 or e-mail Museum Director James Hewing firstname.lastname@example.org
The Museum has re-opened as normal this morning.
