"He is now unable to ride the bikes he loves and is facing substantial inconvenience trying to replace them.
"These bikes are very distinctive and I hope someone will recognise them. Please look out for them and if you are offered elite bikes for sale at very low prices or in suspicious circumstances please call the police straight away."
