A man has been left fuming after his rare motorbike was stolen from a friend’s house.
Jack Urquhart hopes police will be able to trace his white Derbi Terra 125 after it was taken from Arklay Place.
The 22-year-old claims the bike – which is worth up to £2,500 – is one of only “two or three” of its kind in Scotland.
As well as reporting the incident to the police, bikers across the city have rallied round Jack in a bid to get his Derbi returned.
Jack has been scouring the city for his prized possession – and has taken drastic action in his bid to find it.
He said: “I stopped a biker in the middle of the Kingsway because I thought I had seen my bike.
“I see this white bike coming down and I immediately thought that was it, so I stopped right in the middle of the Kingsway to flag him down.
“I stopped to explain to him, but that wasn’t the bike.”
It’s not the first time the bike has disappeared – having already been stolen last year.
It was spotted at Ladywell Avenue and Jack said he was able to retrieve it after the thief used Jack’s chain to secure the bike.
Most recently, Jack said a friend had been using the bike as he was unable to afford the running costs because he was unemployed.
He added: “My friend had been using it, putting petrol in it and he was insured for it.
“He had been using it on Sunday night.
“He told me that he went out and had seen it was gone. He thinks it was taken between 10.30pm and 1.30am.
“It’s been taken before, but luckily I was able to get it back.
“The thing with this bike is that it’s actually very rare – I believe there are only two or three of them in Scotland.
“I bought it for £1,500, but I’ve seen them go for about £2,500.
“It’s really annoying, but I can’t shout and scream about it, I’ve just got to see if they can get it back.
“The bikers in Dundee have been amazing, they’re all looking out for it.”
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police Scotland is investigating the theft of a motor cycle from outside a building in Arklay Place, Dundee, some time between 10.30pm on Sunday October 21 and 2am the following day.
“The bike is a white Derbi Terra 125cc with red writing and a black seat, and it carried the registration plate SP61 FCA when taken. If you have any information that can assist our inquiries, please call 101.”
