Theft gang van's reg plate revealed

Published: 21 April 2004

A white van with the registration number NL52 DLK was used by the gang who stole MCN’s long term test GSX-R1000 in London on Tuesday, April 23..

Police have been unable to trace the van so far because it has been registered to a false address, so we’re asking for your help. If you see it call 999, give the registration number and its location and the police will link the call in with the theft of our GSX-R (reg number GU04 YMY, frame number: 102306).

This was a professional outfit. Police have two witnesses to them casing the bikes in the parking bay in Farringdon Lane, Islington, and then returning with the van. This will not be the first time they’ve struck. If you see the van warn other riders and make that call.
