Helmets, jackets and gloves were also stolen.

Owner Kyle Drabble said: “We will get up and running again, they will not keep us down.

“I don’t know if it is a councidence but a couple of months ago a council storage unit nearby was broken into and a Stihl saw was one of the items stolen.

“It wouldn’t surprise me if that’s what they used to cut the hole in the side of our unit to get the bikes out.”
