Hi
I saw this chap outside our house yesterday on Henslowe road and thought he looked a bit dodge. He drives a 3 wheeled makeshift motorised bike. My partner just saw him at the bottom of our street trailing our sons go cart behind him and assumed I'd given it away. I hadn't! He removed it without permission and when my son wakes up he'll be devastated. Anyone know this fella?

Can you give a bit of description of the man? Ive seen a rather unconventional motorised bicycle I think - but I havent seen it recently enough to remember of it was bike or trike.

Hi

I saw the guy yesterday afternoon. He's white, medium build, late 50/60's and hairy with a beard. He was wearing a hi vis jacket and looked scruffy. He was loading bits of wood from a skip onto the back of his 3 wheeled bike thing which is kind of like a rickshaw without a roof yesterday afternoon outside a neighbours further down the road. He hung around a bit (I know this as a DHL van was taking forever to deliver yesterday so I was stuck further down the street).

I thought nothing else of it until my partner came home last night at about 9.45 saying that a man on a 3 wheeler was speeding down our road with our sons Kettler go kart attached. Not wanting to give chase in case he turned out to be dangerous and wondering whether I'd consented to this meant my partner didn't give chase.

It wasn't locked up (as it should have been) as my son had the day before used the lock for his bike but it was clearly not on display or in anyway advertised as a freebie, plus I was in last night and our front gate closed. This guy is a thief and I've reported the theft to the police. Please watch out for him and if he's in your area during the day it's likely he's scoping out stuff in your garden so I guess be aware and lock away kids bikes/scooter or anything else of value.

There's often a Mad Max three wheeler parked up in Frogley Road

Not a mad max type thing, much smaller than that, almost like a motorised push bike

Hello Cazzyr ,

I am a local scrap man , I get around London quite a bit .

I see a LOT of dodgey ( non-licensed ) scrappys and waste collectors about - I have never seen one on a trike except a couple of local gypsies working nearby Surrey Canal Road ( Industrial Section ) , they also reside in the closely situated Camp Site by the train station .

If you can upload a photo/image of what this bike/trike looks like (closest as possible ) I will can help get the word out and hopefully may find out who this person is doing this and find a way to get in contact him .

Well , I go to go but I will come back here if I see what you described !

Matthew

He is riding on the footpath in Peckham rye at the moment.
