PRO­TO­TYPE STOLEN

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

The sec­ond pro­to­type of Brian Crighton’s new race bike, the CR700P, has been stolen from his work­shop in Gilling­ham, Dorset. The thieves broke into his work­shop tak­ing the CR700P ro­tary rolling chas­sis, which was fit­ted with Brembo brakes, Bi­tubo ECH forks, Bi­tubo NT011 shock and var­i­ous elec­tron­ics. Also taken was Crighton’s lap­top, con­tain­ing re­search on the bike, as well as en­gine end cases and var­i­ous tools.

MCN has pre­vi­ously vis­ited Crighton to see the CR700P in April, when he had re­ceived fund­ing to pro­duce 100 of the bikes for pub­lic sale. The sec­ond pro­to­type was the next step to­wards the pro­duc­tion bike. Crighton told MCN that while the theft has caused con­sid­er­able per­sonal loss, the in­ten­tion is still to carry on with the project al­beit with a de­lay. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is urged to con­tact the Dorset Po­lice.
