An appeal was issued on social media on Sunday afternoon (July 31) for the mystery rider to come forward.
In a post on Twitter, police said they had spotted the individual riding the black electric Surron bike, before later confiscating it.
It is now being stored at the local station in Craigmillar, and officers have appealed for the owner to come forward for ‘a chat’.
