Harley Davidson washes up on Canadian coast

30 April 2012 Last updated at 21:27 BST

A Canadian man who went exploring an isolated beach in British Columbia's Graham Island made a remarkable discovery - a washed up Harley Davidson motorbike.

The motorcycle was inside a container and was registered in the Miyagi Prefecture, an area hit by the tsunami last year.

The theory is that the motorbike drifted right across to the Canadian coast.

Japanese authorities are now trying to find who owns the bike and whether they are still alive.
