SLOWLY finding their feet after the devastation of last year's floods, the Kilcoy Motorcycle Club has been dealt another blow.
Thousands of dollars worth of equipment was stolen when the club was broken into between July 14 and 17.
What makes the loss harder to deal with is that without some of the stolen equipment the club is unable to operate.
Club president Matt Zielinski said the equipment stolen was worth about $40,000, and included two quad bikes and a John Deere Gator vehicle.
"We use the Gator to transport injured riders from the track and without that we can't host meets," Mr Zielinski said.
"They also took a generator, whipper snipper and a welder.
"Whoever did it knew what they were after and left other items of value untouched."
The club has about 230 members with about 130 riders participating on club days. The theft resulted in the cancellation of a race day, which resulted in more of a loss for the club.
"Most of the funds we raise ourselves with a lot of hard work," Mr Zielinski said. "We just got back on our feet after the floods with the help of grants and the community. We lost everything in the floods and now all items of value are gone again. We can't hold a meet without the equipment so we can't make money for the club. We've pretty much been brought back to our knees again."
Kilcoy police officer in charge Sergeant Martin Tanwan said the break-in was reported on July 18, and police believe the offence may have taken place at night on Monday, July 16.
"From our inquiries so far we believe that the break-in occurred on the Monday night where offenders have cut the locks and stolen a number of items," Sgt Tanwan said. "We are seeking information as to any vehicles that were seen or anyone acting suspiciously in the area around that time."
The Kilcoy Motorcycle Club will hold its next club days on August 5, August 26 and September 30 and they will host the annual Ironman event on October 13 and 14.
The club welcomes new riders. For further information about the club phone 0438 182 961 or visit www.kilcoymx.org.au.
