bike lock problems

I hope this is the right place to raise this.
I have a problem! I've been going through the shed at the bottom of the garden and there are a couple of old bikes that my parents used to ride but have long since forgotten about. My problem is that while these bikes are workable albeit a bit dirty they both have D-locks attached. My parents have not the faintest clue as to the whereabouts of the keys which presents a bit of a problem. I realise this is a bit of a sensitive issue as its not a good idea to tell lots of people how to cut d-locks but if anyone had any suggestions I would love to hear them. I guess it might be better to email me direct with suggestions as [email protected]

About 30 minutes of sawing with a carbide-blade hacksaw. A lot less if you have a sawzall, but you better get a top-quality blade. An angle grinder does a fair job as well.

An ankle grinder with a zip-cut blade goes through like a hot knife in butter.
