An Asfordby man has been left gutted after burglars broke into his shed and stole a motorbike he’d painstakingly restored to its former glory.

The fully restored maroon 1955 James Comet motorbike was taken, along with two chainsaws, from the Charnwood Avenue area between 4pm on Tuesday, January 12 and 8.30am the following day.

A Leicestershire Police spokesman said: “The victim has dedicated a long time restoring the motorbike and has been left upset at the prospect that all his hard work has been for nothing.

“Take a look at the picture and if you know where the motorbike may be or who was responsible please contact 101.”
