Detectives are looking for two gunmen who robbed a 47-year-old man in Upper Manhattan last month during an alleged motorcycle sale, police said.

Law enforcement sources said the robbery took place at 3:10 p.m. on April 25 outside an apartment building on West 149th Street near Convent Avenue in Sugar Hill.

Police said the victim attended the scene after making online arrangements to purchase a motorbike. But when he arrived, the two suspects met him and drew their weapons.

Cops said the suspects withdrew $980 in cash from the victim, then fled on foot eastbound on West 149th Street towards Convent Avenue.

The incident was reported to 30th district. The victim was not injured.

Security video taken near the scene, which the NYPD released on May 14, shows the two suspects running under scaffolding. One of them was wearing a black hoodie, black pants, black sneakers and a white surgical mask around his neck.

His cohort wore a black doorag, a black face mask, a black sweatshirt, light blue latex gloves and dark colored pants.
