Officers have released an image of a rare motorcycle stolen from a home in Gamlingay last Wednesday (October 17).

Burglars broke into a home in Potton Road between 11am and 12.15pm.

The stolen bike is a 1950s Manx-Norton ES2 motorcycle.

The bike, reportedly worth more than £12,000, is designed specifically for racing and therefore not registered with the DVLA.

Detective Constable Martin Hardy said: “This is a very distinctive motorbike that is unlikely to be scrapped or sold in parts due to its high value.
