Surely these bikes aren’t going to be easy to offload on Ebay, Gumtree or Allclassifieds as they appear to be pretty upmarket. People in the right circles will be able to spot a fraudster trying to flog these off.
Did the CCTV catch the number plate of the vehicle? If not, I think security needs an overhaul.
