ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque police say a man’s motorcycle collection worth more than $100,000 has been stolen.

Joseph Vigil, of Taos, brought his three custom Harley-Davidson bikes for an Albuquerque motorcycle show this weekend.

He told police that they were inside an unmarked trailer parked at a friend’s house near Candelaria and Palomas on Friday night.

The bikes and trailer disappeared a few hours later.

Vigil says the motorcycles have a value of roughly $120,000.

He has displayed them at automotive shows around the country, including in California and Ohio.

Witnesses say a black truck hauled the trailer away.
