Police are hunting for a motorcycle they believe to be involved in a crash that left a 70-year-old woman with serious injuries.
In the crash, a motorcyclist and pedal cyclist collided on The Tramways cycle path between Barnards Way and Rotterdam Road in Lowestoft on Tuesday September 7, 2021.
On Wednesday 9 February, a 21-year-old male from the Lowestoft area was released under investigation after being interviewed by police in relation to the incident.
Officers have released photographs of the bike suspected to have been involved in the collision which is described as an off-road scrambler motorcycle.
The bike has blue front fairing, with a white trim, a white front plant and a red padded crossbar with metallic blue front forks.
It also has distinctive off-road tyres.
Sergeant Adrian Hales, from the Norfolk and Suffolk roads and armed policing team said: "We would like to know the whereabouts of this bike, which may well be in the possession of an innocent purchaser and would appeal to the current owner to come forward and contact police.

"I believe the bike may well have been sold sometime following the collision, and the current owner may well not be aware of the circumstances surrounding the collision.
"This was a terrible collision where an elderly lady received serious injuries as a result of the collision, and I’m keen to identify the rider responsible. I am still appealing for anyone with any information about the collision to make contact with us."
The East Anglian Air Ambulance was called to the scene following the crash, with the woman flown to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with serious injuries.
The 70-year-old woman is recovering well and continues to make good progress at home.
