A Swansea family is pleading for the return of their late father's motorcycle that was stolen from the shop where it was getting work done.

Fox 25 reports that the family of Mike Mahan, who died last year at 62 years old of

a vile of their father's ashes woven into a saddlebag

liver failure, had brought the 1988 FLHS model Harley Davidson to Adrenaline Cycle in Swansea to have some work done on it. They learned on Friday that the bike had been stolen from the shop.

Mahan's daughter's are now pleading for the bike's return and say it is extra special to them because it has a vile of their father's ashes woven into a saddlebag.

The shop's owner, Justin Torres, told Fox 25 that this is the first time he has ever had to call a customer with this kind of news and says the thief or thieves broke into a secure trailer by cutting locks and damaging equipment.

He is also offering a $2,000 cash reward for the return of the bike, no questions asked.

Police are also looking into the theft.
