‘Priceless’ trophies have been stolen from the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull during a burglary last night.
At around 11.00pm yesterday evening the inner foyer of the 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 were smashed causing substantial damage to the displays.
The museum says while many of the trophies and TT replicas have little ‘scrap’ value, they are unique and irreplaceable as part of the country’s motorcycling heritage.
The National Motorcycle Museum, which reopened as normal this morning, is offering a reward of £20,000 for information which leads to the safe recovery of the artifacts.
