Priceless trophies stolen from Motorcycle Museum

Solihull Editorial 4th Sep, 2014 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016

AN IRREPLACEABLE collection of motorcycle trophies has been stolen and thousands of pounds worth of damage was caused when heartless thugs ransacked the National Motorcycle Museum.

The robbers left a trail of destruction and fled with a haul of invaluable trophies – some of immense historical value to the industry and motorsport on Wednesday, August 27.

It is thought the list of trophies, which were taken from glass cabinets situated in the foyer of the museum at Coventry Road, Solihull, include world championship prizes and items of immense historical value.

Many of the trophies and TT replicas have little “scrap” value but are unique and irreplaceable as part of the country’s 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 artefacts.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact West Midlands Police or the National Motorcycle Museum on 01675 443311 or e-mail Museum Director James Hewing james@thenmm.co.uk
