Cabinet damage from the theft

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 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 relevant information is asked to contact West Midlands Police or the National Motorcycle Museum on 01675 443311 or email Museum Director James Hewing james@thenmm.co.uk

The Museum has re-opened as normal this morning.
