The parents of a boy whose championship dirt bike was stolen from a locked trailer on their Lower Saucon Township property are asking the public for help locating it.
Michele and Rich Pfanders posted a photo of the Yamaha PW50 on Facebook Thursday, and asked that it be returned to their seven-year-old son, Bradon.
“This bike is his national championship bike and we would like it back,” Rich said. “This bike has a lot of memories.”
Bradon rode it in the national championship race he won in Illinois in July, Michele said.
It is valued at approximately $1,200.
The theft was reported to township police, according to Michele, who said thieves cut a latch on the trailer to gain access to it.
Rich said the theft happened sometime during “the last few nights.”
The bike is described as a 2006 model with a small tear in its seat, Pirelli SL26 scooter tires and no front brakes.
Anyone with information about it can contact the Lower Saucon Township Police Department at 610-317-6110.
As of Thursday night more than 50 people had shared Rich Pfanders’ Facebook post about the missing bike.
