Vehicle Identity and Competition History

is claimed to have important racing, rallying or ‘ex-works’ history as it was common in period for a competition vehicle of a single identity to have more than one frame, body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times, both in a vehicle’s ‘works’ career and thereafter in private owner hands. Sometimes ‘works’ vehicles were fitted with different registration plates, so that a vehicle could meet a particular event’s start date deadline. These historical factors may lead to there being in existence multiple and competing claimants to the same vehicle identity.

The Auctioneer cannot check or verify the authenticity of the frame or engine number under which a vehicle is offered, but relies on the Seller’s description. Buyers should take particular care to verify in advance the authenticity of a vehicle that

No Reserve*

Reg No: Unregistered CC: 150 MOT: Exempt

Frame No: 150Li 954322 Engine No: 150Li 954061

• Original barn find for restoration • Good side panels • With a copy of original Italian registration document and tax disc The Lambretta Li150 Series 2 was launched in October 1959. Based on the successful Li Series 1, the obvious difference was the position of the headlight on the handlebars. It had an engine based on the Li150 Series 1 but with an increased stroke and several other small modifications all over the scooter that made it the best selling Lambretta of all time. This is a genuine barn find. Found in Italy approximately 20 years ago she is waiting patiently for a kindly Lambretta enthusiast to bring her back to her former glory. She appears to be complete and is considered a worthy restoration project.

Frame No: Not visible Engine No: Not visible

• Outstanding build quality & finish, Vespa production racer, remarkable provenance • Winner of 2 British championships, never registered, no road use • 21bhp, 94mph at 10,400rpm, 135cc ‘NK1’ is a small frame Vespa racer with an outstanding pedigree and the winner of consecutive British Production Class Championships. Given the full works by the legendary Hodge at Supersprint Restorations with all new forks & SS bodywork fitted every component brand new genuine Vespa, or a superior quality race alternative wherever the rulebook allowed, with distress worked into the paint. The engine was equally built using all new parts, genuine, or superior race parts wherever rules permitted, with the exception of the casings; engine builder and rider, Team Vespa stalwart David Delaney, wished to bring an old set back to life. Delaney & NK1 won both British championships entered as well as chalking up many race wins, pole positions, and fastest laps elsewhere. The scooter, now with the typical patina of a race machine, is exactly as last raced, complete with marks from dropped spanners and a scuff on the left rear quarter earned on its very last race at Lydden Hill. This outstanding example now deserves to be preserved in a collection.

1954 Lambretta Model F MkII

Est: £2,300 - £2,700*

Reg No: Unregistered CC: 125 MOT: Exempt

Frame No: 058595 Engine No: 141181

• Good quality older restoration using mainly the original parts • Correct numbers and with good compression • Stored indoors since 2008 The Lambretta Model F was introduced in March 1954 and was almost the same as the Model E but with the addition of a kick starter instead of a hand pull start. The Model F MkII was introduced some time after mid production in 1955, and these are extremely rare today. It had front forks similar to the Model D with spring and rod suspension. This example is a very presentable specimen of a very rare submodel. Our scooter expert believes this to actually be a late model 1955. Those who are familiar with these early Lambrettas will appreciate the retention of the original switch, original lights, spare wheel holder with small disc and original foot running strips. Normally seen with a side stand this one has the optional extra of an accessory SPC centre stand too. We believe she just needs light commissioning to run and be used. She also comes with some old photographs, some MOTs and a rare original Model F illustrated parts catalogue.

• 1967 world record: 151.936kmh on the quarter mile • 0-100kmh in 7.6 seconds • 6hp at 9700rpm. Unrivalled provenance Giancarlo Gori and his father Vasco opened their scooter sales and tuning centre in 1958. Legend has it that they were involved in illegal night street races to prove the speed of their machines. Giancarlo Gori then turned his attention to Vespas. When the Vespa SS90 appeared on the market in 1966 this was a game changer and the SS90 Gori racer was born which then elevated tuning Vespas to the extreme. This is the actual SS90 Gori racer raced at Elvington, England in 1967 that achieved the 151kmh (94mph) record. An unprecedented opportunity to acquire an unrivalled part of vintage scooter racing history.

Reg No: JWE 505C CC: 150 MOT: Exempt

Frame No: 150LiS 254850 Engine No: 150Li 778614

• Displayed in the Lambretta museum for over 25 years • Completely original and untouched with V5 for use on UK roads • Original ignition, steering lock and toolbox keys present The ‘150 Special’ debuted in 1963. The rare ‘Golden Special’ appeared around 1965 for little more than a year. The Special 150cc engine/gearing combination on these models was also particularly sought after by Lambretta racers who raided the machine engines and this has contributed to the rarity of them in original state. Here we present a very rare original paint unmolested Italian Golden Special. Imported in the early 1990s from Italy, she resided in the famous Lambretta Museum in Weston-super-Mare for over 25 years. Still with its original Green Guiliari seat and with all keys present. A stunningly preserved original condition time-warp machine. The ‘running-in’ decal is still visible. The frame and engine numbers are correct and it is almost certain that the engine has never been removed, nor any sign a cable has ever been replaced. The engine is turning freely, however, a mechanical overhaul with a conservative approach to preserve her is recommended. The bodywork is sound with exceptional condition paint all over.

1961 Puch Alpine SR 150

105

No Reserve*

Reg No: 965 UNU CC: 150 MOT: Exempt

Frame No: 32/3715 Engine No: 32/3715

• Previously part of a large collection of motorcycles • Previous resto to a very good standard • Just three previous owners from new. The late 1950s saw strong sales of Puch two-stroke single motorscooters, which had three gears shifted from the left twistgrip. These machines developed a reputation for reliability and were popular for daily commuting, providing good weather protection and ease of use. Later models had a 150cc engine and foot-operation, giving better performance of 6hp instead of 5hp but retaining the three gears. This striking 1961 Puch Alpine has formed part of a large collection of motorcycles. An alternative to the more regularly seen Lambrettas etc. this Puch is a lovely design with flowing aerodynamic lines. The scooter also has a tyre pump that fits into its own fairing bracket. Restored by the previous owner to a very good standard and with just three previous owners from new, it is understood it was last on the road in 1964 until it was purchased and restored. We have been advised it ‘has been running recently’. It comes complete with RF60 logbook, handbooks, keys, and various paperwork. Please note this will need to have a new V5C applied for as it is not currently on the DVLA system.

1949 Lambretta Model B

Frame No: 16007 Engine No: 15847

• Very high quality restoration in correct Metallic Red • Correct numbers and V5 for UK roads • 73 years old and a very rare model The Lambretta Model B was first introduced on the 11th December 1949 and represented numerous and substantial improvements over the preceding Model A. The wheels were increased to 8 inch as opposed to the previous 7 inch, a larger fuel tank, more efficient suspension and the adoption of a hand gear change instead of the previous foot change system. This example has been subject to a very high-quality restoration whilst in Italy and has recently been the central showpiece of a well-known UK collector. A restoration of this magnitude would cost very many thousands of pounds and it appears to be correctly restored in every way. It is a beautiful example indeed and has been seen running and should be able to be brought into service quite easily judging from the quality of the restoration. These 1940’s Lambrettas are tipped for rocketing collectability in the near future. This example has been restored so well that it represents a great opportunity for a serious collector.

Est: £9,000 - £12,000*

Reg No: Unregistered CC: 125 MOT: Exempt

Frame No: V13T 60672 Engine No: V20M 59424

• One of only 5 known V13T models known in the UK** • Engine refurbished in Italy and in running order • Correct numbers as original to the model, verified by the logbook In 1948 the V1T was launched as the first 125cc model and as a successor to the earlier 98cc models. The V13T did not add many modifications to the 1948 version except for the partial covering of the rod-controlled gear mechanism, improved cooling fins on the cylinder and a central stand. This extremely early 1950 model still has the curved stand feet and the other features of the earlier 1948-49 V11T model, notably the crimped body lines. She is very original except for the paint. We noticed the original ‘Piaggio Genova’ badge, exhaust, seat, Silma Fuel gauge accessory and front bumper. The engine has been mechanically overhauled and we are told she was a running scooter when last used. There is a bill present that shows the parts and work done to a cost of 1,600 Euros. This is a very old Vespa, almost certainly in the top 10 oldest in the UK, and produced long before Douglas started production under license in Great Britain, in March 1951. **Information verified by Veteran Vespa Club.

• Original paint early Italian TV Series 2 with original period accessories • Correct engine and frame numbers and a V5 • Ignition, steering lock and toolbox keys present The Lambretta TV175 Series 2 was launched in October, 1959. Often referred to as the ‘Tourer’ it had a superb performance coupled with beautiful styling and has been hugely sought after for many years by collectors. This stunning Azzurro Tirreno Blue, very early example, is in completely original condition. The dazzling array of original accessories alone are estimated at over £6,000 value in today’s collectors market and include: Ulma Inox side panel ‘hockey sticks’, Falbo horn cast cover, Super compass wheel disc, Raydyot indicators, Fabbri front bumper, Cavalli mudguard crest, Biemme headlight peak, aftermarket exhaust with straight chrome pipe, rear flat rack, Vigano fork boots, Biemme rear registration plate surround and a BB floor mat. There are also a large number of priceless period waterslides on the scooter; it is assumed from their patina to have been positioned on there for decades. It is very rare to come across this desirable model in such an original state of all-over matching patina. Instant cool and a superb investment.

• Completely original with original paint and correct numbers • Working, with V5 and rare steering lock key present • Very rare pull cord starter The Lambretta model E was first introduced in April 1953 and unique in that it was started by a hand pull-cord like a lawnmower. The early models have an advance and retard lever to help start the scooter. The frame is tubular, in the shape of a ‘C’, with the upper part serving as a toolbox. The forks fold back on themselves and have C-shaped springs with rubbers that allow the fork link to open and close the spring. Today, E models that still retain the hand-cord are extremely rare as many were converted to use the kick start of the Model F. This example is a very nice original specimen and we are told it is in full good working condition. She also has new tyres. It has a rare period side stand. The accessory steering lock still has its key. This scooter is in overall very good condition and could be used immediately on the road. A very rare opportunity for any collector of Lambrettas.

• Original early Italian Li150 Series 2 combination with extraordinary providence • A dazzling array of historical badges, plaques and original accessories • Blue DVLA registration document This priceless stunning historical vehicle in running condition needs no introduction for most people involved in the British scooter scene. Mike Karslake was a founder member of The British Lambretta owners Association and designed the BLOA logo and badges used by the club. In recognition of his support for all things Lambretta Peter Agg, the UK importer of Lambrettas, gifted Mike the early Li150 Series 2 scooter you see here. It was later fitted with the rare Watsonian Avonette sidecar. In the 60s Lambretta Concessionaires gifted Mike again, with a replacement SX200 engine for the scooter. The myriad of extra period equipment includes: Genuine original Pegasus seat, 12v electronic ignition and lighting, genuine Innocenti time clock, BLOA competition badge, front disc brake and fork dampers and an extra driving light, while in the sidecar there is extra lighting and a chronometric speedometer; useful for competing in trials events.

• Running very well, complete and in excellent condition • Correct engine and frame numbers • One of only two series 2 dual control ‘trainers’ known to survive In the 1960s, one idea to help new riders learn to ride was the creation of a range of dual control Lambrettas on which an instructor would give instructions from behind. The scooter also had a complete set of ‘school teacher’ controls that would allow a second clutch, rear brake and ‘kill’ button mounted on a set of handlebars. These machines were created in a short run by Lambretta Concessionaires. This rare original dual control Lambretta Series 2 was ordered new by F & C Mobyke, a scooter dealer in the north of England We are told the dual control levers, as well as the ‘kill’ button, all work. The newly allocated registration number is ‘HAS 838’, which is on the DVLA system, should the new owner wish to put the scooter on the road. This scooter captures and defines an important moment in the history of British Scootering. It is a very rare opportunity to acquire this desirable model in such an original and personalised state in dealer livery with all over matching patina. Instant cool and a superb investment.

• The only known original genuine Italian SX200 in Ochre paint • Engine and frame numbers correct • Registered with the DVLA in 2011 for use on UK roads Many regard the SX200 to be the finest scooter Innocenti produced. The SX200 had improved performance and gearing over the previous TV200 models and is the quintessential Lambretta. This late 1968 specimen has many of the typical features that were also found on the early DL models, including rectangular Innocenti badge, push-in fork buffers, grey plastic toolbox, clipon panels and silver hubs and rims. The engine is still completely standard with the original 200 barrel, standard gears and original 20mm carburettor. Discovered by an Italian collector in Sicily, she is in her original Yellow Ochre colour which is now regarded as the rarest of all the SX200 factory colours. Save for necessary touch ups performed during the professional conservation carried out by Rimini Lambretta Centre, who are regarded as the best in the world, she has never been re-painted. The seat is the original and is in exceptional original condition. Our consultant rode this scooter during our recent visit to the vendor and it performed like a new scooter.

• Bertone styled Lambretta GP200 ‘Grand Prix’ first registered in the UK in September 1970 • Restored and repainted in Orange and Cream in1999 but otherwise keeping a good degree of originality • Only showing four recorded keepers on the registration document supplied with the scooter Ferdinando Innocenti had an engineering background having established his first workshop at the age of 18. Following the end of WW2, he, like many of his contemporary Italian industrialists required a product that would enable him to rebuild his shattered company based in the Milanese suburb of Lambrate. By the 1960s the introduction of TV range established the classic long and sleek Lambretta look that went on to become a style icon of the era culminating in the Bertone designed ‘Grand Prix’ models of the late sixties. This GP200 was first registered in the UK when new in September 1970 and has only had 4 recorded keepers since with the first owner selling it in 1982. Changing hands again in 1986, it was restored in 1999 being refinished in its current Orange and Cream colour scheme but keeping the rest of the scooter in standard trim. A rare chance to acquire a UK market Grand Prix, run recently and supplied with a current V5C. *All hammer prices are subject to a Buyer’s Premium of 15% plus VAT

• Revolutionary BMW scooter with a roof and windscreen • Built to European car like crash testing standards • Recommissioned by BMW Motorrad in 2019, at a cost of £1,800 The C1 is a revolutionary enclosed scooter made by Bertone for BMW, the design concept being to offer the convenience of a scooter but with the weather protection of a car. The C1’s most innovative design feature was its windscreen and roof with the emphasis on safety. BMW added passive safety and car-like crash testing to the scooter and claimed that in a head-on collision the C1 offered a standard of accident protection comparable to a European compact car. That was the prime marketing strategy to convert car buyers, the C1 was claimed to be so safe that the rider did not need to wear a helmet to ride it. This rare C1 was given a good mechanical overhaul and MOT by BMW Motorrad in Feb 2019 at a cost of £1800 and at the same time as it was resprayed in White. The MOT expired in February 2020 but it has covered no mileage since and the vendor reports it starts and runs well. This already collectible scooter comes supplied with a workshop manual, an owner’s manual and various receipts as well as a current V5C.

Frame No: 089289 Engine No: 007435

• This lovely Lambretta has formed part of a collection of motorcycles • Beautifully restored approx. 8 years ago and still highly presentable • Correct numbers machine and sparingly used since restoration Inspired by US military lightweight ‘scooter’ transportation of WWII and manufactured by Innocenti, the Lambretta scooter gained instant acceptance in the immediate post-war years, its cleanliness and convenience in particular appealing to those who regarded the true motorcycle with suspicion. Italian scooters were adopted as favoured transport by the ‘Mods’, becoming one of the enduring style icons of the 1960s. Following the unreliable TV 175 Series 1, Lambretta went back to the drawing board to create one of its all-time greats: The ‘Li’. Built as a 125 or 150, the classic Li used the bore/stroke dimensions of the preceding ‘D’ Series but housed its entirely new engine in modern bodywork similar to that of the TV. Having been the subject of restoration work some 8 years ago this attractively presented Lambretta has been part of a collection of twowheeled machines. With correct numbers this example possesses an attractive pastel colour scheme and a seat trimmed in Tan, providing a sporty-look to this Li. Sparingly used since restoration, this Li comes complete with its V5C, old Italian logbook, and various paperwork. Certainly one for the vintage scooter collector.

• British registered on 14th September, 1976 • V5 present for use on UK roads • Great investment and collector opportunity The Rally 200 is much sought model after due to its excellent and powerful performance coupled with attractive lines. Also known as the queen of Vespas they were a large performance step up to over 10 HP from the earlier models of the 1960’s. There were also new electronics and a range of vibrant colours in tune with the fashions of the 1970’s. This running example was owned by the late Kev Walsh, a well known champion of all things scooter in the UK. It has had a genuine Rally 200 replacement body at some time in its earlier life, possibly supplied at the same time as the two-tone Bambini sidecar which has been professionally installed using the correct fittings and alignments. She presents very well. The paint is generally very good. With a modern V5 registration document she is ready to ride. Our consultant rode this combination recently and the engine sounded very good. All lights work. A rare and collectable Vespa combination presented in generally excellent condition.

• The only DL200 scooter produced in the month of January 1969** • In running condition when our consultant viewed recently • Correct numbers The DL200 was the last of the great Lambretta scooters. Produced from January 1969 until April 1971 a total of only 9,350 DL200’s were made. The iconic bodywork followed late 1960s the trends of the day. The Bertone design was more streamlined than its predecessors and only a genuine Italian DL had the famous ink splat on the front of the sleek leg shield. Numbers suggest this is the first ever DL200 model ever produced and is a very rare find. Completely restored in 2000, the engine was seen running recently and the bodywork is in beautiful condition throughout. All of the correct genuine Innocenti parts have been used in the restoration. The speedometer displays 3,872 miles since restoration, which is verified by the supplied MOTs. Our client spent considerable money and invested years of time collecting the rarest Lambrettas he could find for a museum project that sadly will no longer go ahead. **Verified by official Innocenti production records.

• Completely restored in original colour with correct numbers • Fully working with V5 for use in UK • Nice commercial vehicle with potential The FD series was first introduced in December 1952 with wheels arranged in a tricycle style. The front end was similar to the Model D but with stronger forks and heavier dampeners. The leg shields were wider than the scooter. The centrally positioned engine powered a prop shaft to drive the rear wheels. The whole machine was surprisingly agile and manoeuvrable with a turning circle of only 1.75 meters. In late 1956 the FD Mk2 appeared with a larger 150cc engine, a new kick start design and increased strengthening including larger wheel nuts. Throughout its production life the FD was offered with a choice of many back boxes, pick ups and a myriad of other commercial uses. This example is in a very nice restored condition. This ‘Furgone’ is now UK registered and could be used immediately on the road. A very rare opportunity for any collector of Lambrettas or business looking for a unique delivery vehicle restored to a high standard.

• British registered from new • Running well and in good condition • Formerly owned by LCGB life member Kev Walsh The Lambretta Li150 Series 2 was launched in October 1959. Based on the successful Series 1, with the obvious difference being the position of the headlight on the handlebars. It had an engine based on the Series 1 but with an increased stroke and several other modifications all over the scooter that made it the best-selling Lambretta. This is a running and presentable example. Restored some time ago this is the later version with long rear light. The keys are present for the steering lock and the large and very useful accessory tool box on the inside of the leg shield. She also has a rear luggage rack. These show that the original number was removed from the vehicle at that time as a cherished number. However, this proves that the scooter was British registered from new. Our consultant recently rode this scooter on his visit to the vendor and it performed very well.

• Untouched with a believed genuine 564km from new, with corroboration • Engine and frame numbers correct • Understood to have been won in a raffle at the 1966 Milan Motor Show and never used Many regard the SX200 to be the finest scooter Innocenti produced. The SX200 had improved performance and gearing over the previous TV200 models and is the quintessential Lambretta. This 1966 specimen has to be seen to be believed. Won by an Italian non-scooterist at the 1966 Milan Motor Show, he then passed the scooter to his son who also did not want to ride it. The scooter was then purchased by the Weston Lambretta Museum in England in the 1990s. The scooter was then sold to a mutual collector who passed it to the current owner. In all of this time it was stored in collections, practically unused. It is rare to find this top marque Lambretta in such untouched and superb original condition. On inspection the cables have never been moved and everything including the original seat is in A1 condition. This is a very rare opportunity to obtain one of the best examples of an original SX200 to be found anywhere.

• Argentinian built Lambretta LD variant and very rare in the UK • Bought in Italy and imported to the UK • Complete with original accessories SIAM di Tella was a large industrial corporation located in Buenos Aires founded in 1911 manufacturing a wide range of industrial equipment and electrical consumer goods. Under the name SIAM the company started producing Lambretta scooters under license from 1954, calling them Siambrettas. The first versions of the Lambretta LD were produced using imported Italian parts assembled in Argentina. There was then a transitional range using Italian engines in Argentinian made bodies and finally complete Argentinian made scooters. The fully Argentinian LD models started off with the ‘Standard range’ and then went on to produce the ‘Deluxe’. This example is a later example of the Argentinian manufactured ‘Deluxe’ models, with its cheese shaped external gear selector box. She appears to be complete and is adorned with many original and rare South American accessories that are rarely seen in Europe and are highly collectible items in their own right. These include double leg shield trim, decorative front bumper and side panel vent covers.

• Beautiful original condition with correct numbers • Recent mechanical refurbishment by DJ Scooters • 74 years old and a very rare model with V5 for use in UK The Model A was the first ever Lambretta launched on October 1947. During its sole year in production only 9,669 were produced. It had a 125cc engine, 3 speed gearbox and foot operated gear change. It has no suspension except a rubber block at the front and 7 inch wheels. Many of the parts were chrome plated and the overall design was extremely elegant, particularly the deco style gear shift guide and the sweeping front mudguard. This original example is a later model in remarkably good condition. Very few Model A Lambrettas exist in their original paint, so it is indeed a rarity. The scooter was subject to a full high quality mechanical overhaul only last year in 2021 by DJ Scooters at a cost of £1673. These 1940s Lambrettas are tipped for rocketing collectability. This example of an original A in fully working condition and is a rare opportunity.

• Imported from France with correct numbers • Good solid basis for restoration • Original condition version of the rarer 150cc model In 1950 Innocenti granted Robert Fenwick, a manufacturer of utility vehicles, the rights to manufacture the LD models in France in the city of Troyes. In 1952 production started of French built LD’s and these had a variety of differences from the Italian models. These changes were mainly due to French regulations. The choke, fuel filler and fuel taps were moved to a more convenient location. This example is of the rarer, larger engined 150cc variant. It has a good general patina, is solid and is considered a fine basis for restoration. Many of the important parts, including original lights, speedometer, frame plate, vanity mirror and Troyes coat of arms badge, are present. The carburettor and fuel tank are missing. There are also a number of performance kits for LDs, which include new carburettors, and it could be possible that this example is a good candidate for customisation. She could also be displayed as a static ‘objet d’art’.

• An original and rare British market Lambretta, for restoration • Important electric start components present • Valuable original accessories and correct numbers The Lambretta LD was a very popular model globally throughout the 1950s and in the UK had its ardent admirers even after the much improved Li series was introduced. The AVV electric start 150cc version is a very rare scooter anywhere but particularly in Great Britain. The price of this ‘luxury model’ was as high as the TV Series 1 when it was introduced, and there was slight crossover between the two models in 1957. This example is a largely complete specimen, save one rear footboard, engine cowlings and the battery cover. She is adorned with period original accessories, including Ulma double leg shield trim, Fiamm footboard extensions and Wistonia ‘trombone’ rear rack and wheel carrier. The all important and difficult to find ‘starter motor’ is present with starter switch gear. The floor of the leg shield is in need of replacement and the exhaust has all but gone, but overall and elsewhere, she is in a solid and in our opinion restorable condition. These AVV models are rare.

It only passed through private hands and resided in the Weston Lambretta Museum for 24 years. As far as purity is concerned it is registered as a GT200 on the Buff logbook and is in such original untouched condition, perhaps as good as it is possible to get. Sold from new with a sidecar, the history file documents the ownership changes. The MOTs from 2014, when she left the museum, corroborate the mileage. The Watsonian Bambini sidecar is also in its complete and original state, with its original logbook with serial number, instructions and guarantee. It is possibly the best original example of a Bambini sidecar outfit one is likely to see. Our consultant was able to start the scooter on the third kick, and after three years of no use.

The VBA had a completely redesigned body and engine which formed the basis for decades of future Vespas. Today the VBB is an appealing Vespa. This VBB was originally registered in Bologna, on 20th May 1961. She underwent a full restoration and has retained many original parts including the Km/h speedometer and leg shield badges. Over the years she has had little use but been looked after wherever necessary. The very recent 2022 comprehensive mechanical overhaul by Retrospective Scooters cost £1,335.00, with too many new parts replaced to list. This is a lovely appreciating Vespa in a vibrant summer colour, with original documents and substantial history file, running extremely well and very presentable in general.

The Special 150cc engine/gearing combination on these models was also particularly sought after by Lambretta racers who raided the machine engines and this has contributed to the rarity of them. In previous long term ownership this fully restored Series 3 Lambretta has been substantially upgraded and improved, including a 200cc kit; new carburettor; new crank; duplex drive chain; upgraded chain guide; heavy duty clutch springs; tuned exhaust system and electronic ignition. Other modifications include: front forks with added dampers; long range S/S fuel tank with new tap; tubeless tyres and spare; chrome bars, rear rack and backrest and front disc brake conversion. During the current ownership the scooter has been professionally rewired and is only being sold by the vendor due to a sports injury making regular use difficult.

• Very high quality racer with a myriad of original racing parts • Raced in Italian competition • A rare 70 year old ‘correct numbers’ machine This superb 1952 example was built by a senior member of the Lambretta Club d’Italia and has been raced many times in competition. We are told it is very quick. It is built with the correct parts and period racing accessories as only found in collectors circles in Italy. This is a very high quality genuine racing Lambretta. A restoration build of this magnitude would cost very many thousands of pounds and it appears to be correctly prepared in every way. It is a beautiful example indeed. We were able to see the scooter running recently and it sounded very good. The recent Italian owner appears in the Notiziaro Lambretta Issue 26 of 2008, supplied with the scooter. These 1950s racing Lambrettas are tipped for rocketing collectability in the near future. With a NOVA present, this example has been prepared well and represents a great opportunity for a serious collector.

• Unique personalised LCGB livery • Flagship scooter of the Lambretta Club of Great Britain • Original keys present along with the UK V5 Very few people involved in the British scooter scene from the 1980s onwards would not have known of or met ‘Mr Lambretta’ Kev Walsh. Kev was made life member number 2 of the LCGB but sadly passed away in 2018. This SIL GP150 was his ‘rally bike’, believed to have been one owner from new. It was personalised in LCGB livery and would have been seen at many national rallies. The personalised decor includes a chrome ‘Lambretta Club Great Britain’ leg shield badge, personalised vinyl transfers and a rare LCGB spare wheel cover. There are also special chrome plaques on the side panel inlays. The scooter has a leg shield box accessory addition, slope back seat and side panel locks. She is in good overall condition. After many years of being stood the engine started easily and our consultant was able to ride the scooter. This scooter really is an amazing part of original British scootering history, and is homage to the Lambretta Club Of Great Britain.

The Vespa SS90 made between 1965 and 1971 is much sought after by collectors. This SS90 has had only 3 previous owners, one of whom was the late Bill Drake, the legendary Vespa expert. She has a nice 6 digit plate. It comes with copies of the 2 previous registration documents, with one referring to Bill Drake as the second owner of the scooter. It has been restored in the correct Vespa Red colour with the foresight of using the important and impossible to find original parts. All original parts include: Chrome SS90 factory exhaust, MPH Speedometer, Rejna SS90 seat and dummy tank pad with white piping, dummy tank, lights and lenses, plastic under seat tool box, chrome ‘S.Sprint’ rear frame badge, control switch, keys and registration plate.

• High quality restoration in 2002 by Gran Sport for a prestigious customer • Only display use since restoration • Correct numbers and V5 for use on UK roads The GS was the culmination of all of the speed racers and trial versions of Vespa that had gone before including the famous Sei Giorni’ factory racers. Launched in 1962 the GS160 marked the new era of the more powerful Vespas with the widest ‘rear’ ever seen on a Vespa. It helped credibility being the fastest standard Italian scooter on the road in 1962. The GS160 Mk2 is regarded by many as the pinnacle of Vespa performance and style. This example was treated to a ‘no-expense spared’ restoration in 2002 by Gran Sport Scooters. The restoration was commissioned by a prestige classic car dealer. It was then on display inside for two decades before it was passed to our clients. She has full keys and is adorned with a number of accessories. She will need some light commissioning as the scooter was never used since the restoration was done. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful looking example of a highly in-demand model that seldom comes up for sale.

The current owner has owned this scooter for 43 years. No stranger to long rides he prepared the scooter for a long future together with his beloved GT. He spent a considerable sum having it repainted and restored and an even more considerable sum having it professionally mechanically renewed by Cambridge Lambretta in 2014. The bill for this came to over £9,000 alone. The history file that accompanies the scooter is impressive. From the original Green logbook through to a large number of bills from throughout the scooters life. The scooter was commended as the ‘Coolest Scooter’ by Ronnie Scotts, Birmingham, in 1997. The vendor has an agreed valuation by his insurers for £22,000 and a further valuation by Disco Dez Scooters of up to £25,000.

• Complete and in original condition • Engine turns over and bodywork is straight and sound • Matching numbers. Spanish export documents The Lince was launched in 1983 as the Series 80. The range featured fibreglass mudguard/horn-casting, an improved top mounted ignition switch, new style locking seat, Vespa style “body-line” indicators, upgraded (CEV) switchgear/lights, fat front dampers and sticker type badging. This 1983 model still features the 3 warning lights. The Lince was the last ‘real model’ that rolled off the Spanish production line and is described these days as distinctly recognisable as a Lambretta but with an 80’s makeover. Total production figures are rumoured to be only in the low 1000’s making the Lince actually a very rare Lambretta. This example was seen running in 2008 at the time of purchase, we are told, before being stored. She is totally original and the cables appear to have never been removed. It is recommended that will need a mechanical general overhaul. She comes with a rear carrier and spare wheel. These later 200cc Spanish Lambrettas are a great pleasure to ride and she is a very worthwhile project.

It its said that they were produced from January 1969 until April 1971. This 150 example is a late example second version, we believe from late 1970. This is the only DL150 ever known to have been discovered in original paint and in the DL200 Ochre colour, and is a very rare find indeed. (The scooter was historically verified as original paint by Vittorio Tessera of the Casa Lambretta Museum). It was deemed a mistake in the factory but allowed to pass onto the market as Innocenti was in its final months of production. Completely original throughout, she is in very good sound overall condition. All of the parts are believed the original, including the seat and speedometer. There are no signs of over painting and thought to be the original Innocenti paintwork. She is ripe for a conservation project.

Based in Lincoln, Nebraska, the Cushman Scooter Company was founded by brothers – Everett and Clinton Cushman – during 1903. Introduced nineteen years later, the company’s four-stroke Husky engine was used to power farm equipment, pumps, lawn mowers, boats and, from 1936 onwards, Cushman Auto-Glide Scooters. A familiar sight among all branches of the US Armed Forces during WW2 (with the Model 53 being specifically designed for parachute drops), Cushman Scooters were embraced in the years that followed as a means of cheap, stylish transport. The 50- and 60-Series machines featured distinctive ‘Turtle Back’ styling and step through frames. An automatic centrifugal clutch allowed for ‘twist and go’ operation. Although, having both a front and a rear brake was optional! Not as sporty as some of their European counterparts, Cushman Scooter production ceased in 1965. Reportedly the subject of an extensive restoration by its previous keeper that encompassed the frame, engine, transmission and tinwork, this Series 60 Model 62 Roadking has been little used since. Imported from America to the EU with corresponding paperwork, it makes for a decidedly rare sight here in the UK.

The Italian branch of the brand was named ‘Aermacchi-Harley-Davidson’ and the first bike was a variation of the ‘Ala Verde’ suitably modified for the American market. This was also the year that the Chimera ceased production. The remaining motorcycle holdings were sold in 1974 to AMF-Harley-Davidson, with motorcycles continuing to be made at Varese. The business was sold to Cagiva in 1978. This Aermacchi Harley Davidson SS350 features the 344cc singlecylinder engine producing about 25 horsepower and paired to a fourspeed transmission. SS350s were equipped with a kick-starter and a right-side foot shifter. Having formed part of a private motorcycle collection the SS350 was restored some time ago and has been enjoyed since.

The Honda CB750 was an air cooled, transverse, in-line fourcylinder engined motorcycle made by Honda over several generations for model years 1969–2003 as well as 2007, with an upright riding posture. It is often called the original Universal Japanese Motorcycle (UJM). Though other manufacturers had marketed the transverse, overhead camshaft, inline four-cylinder engine configuration and the layout had been used in racing engines prior to World War II, Honda popularized the configuration with the CB750, and the layout subsequently became the dominant sport bike engine layout. The CB750 is thought to be the first motorcycle to be called a “superbike”. The motorcycle offered here is a K7 iteration of the marque. Having formed part of a small private collection in recent years, this machine has been ‘gone through’ by the current owner. It is believed to be a correct numbers machine and has a dating certificate. This CB750 K7 has been in the possession of the vendor for the last four years.

A different approach was adopted for the V-twins: each cylinder’s two valves were pushrod-operated by a single camshaft while the combustion chambers were located in the piston crowns. Enhanced by a six-speed gearbox, this superb motor’s performance belied its lack of capacity. The ‘500’ version (actually 478.6cc) was announced in 1975 with production commencing a couple of years later in five-speed form, a sixspeed version superseding it for 1982. This relatively rare and one owner Moto Morini Sei-V (six-speed) was purchased new from Roger Hollingshead Motorcycles. Maintained regardless of cost, recently it has had the cambelts changed with receipts for parts on file. There is a large history file and the original bill of sale is on file.

• In current ownership since 2014 • Low mileage and cared for example • Recent work carried out and just 4500 miles The Royal Enfield Bullet takes the crown as the longest running motorcycle model in continuous production and has been around since 1932. This 350cc version remained largely unchanged for the 19 years it was sold before emissions laws ended its run in 2006. Unlike modern retro motorcycles from the likes of Triumph, that hide up-to-date tech like fuel injectors where they can’t be seen, the Royal Enfield really was the classic it looked like. If you want to travel back through time to the 1950s then the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 has all that to offer. It has some great engineering details, a sense of authenticity you seldom find on two wheels. The Bullet 350 makes a pleasant rural commuter bike too, returning c.70mpg or more at a steady 55mph and is undeniably good fun. In current ownership since 2014 this is a low mileage example and well cared. With recent work carried out and just c.4500 miles covered, this should be a good usable machine. It comes complete with a host of receipts, old MOT certificates, a current V5C and manuals.

Light, lithe, affordable, reliable and reassuringly practical. Weighing just 380 pounds and packing 48hp, the Skorpion utilizes the engine and electrical systems from a Yamaha XT660, and the brakes/suspension from Italian firm Grimeca. They were well equipped from the factory, including adjustable clip-ons and rear sets. This is a Sport model, which got a half fairing and low bars. A rare Sports model in the UK, with not many around at all, this is a British designed motorcycle with a high specification utilising a Yamaha 660 48bhp engine.

At the same time the ‘Ivory’ range appeared, so-called because of their colour in an age when black was the industry’s default finish. In the recession-hit ‘thirties, Calthorpes were exclusively retailed by the prominent London retailers Pride and Clarke. This is a rare 250cc Calthorpe Ivory project.

An amalgamation with AJS in 1931 formed Associated Motor Cycles which continued until the group’s closure in the mid-60s.

The marque had a long history of racing success with a Matchless ridden by Charlie Collier winning the first single-cylinder race in the first Isle of Man TT in 1907. An amalgamation with AJS in 1931 formed Associated Motor Cycles which continued until the group’s closure in the mid-60s. The Matchless G80 is a classic 500cc British single and was developed to compete with other similar models being offered by the rival BSA/ Triumph group at the time. An older restoration that has been part of a small private collection for the last 10 years, this G80 500cc single will make a good bike for vintage runs and rallies.

• This is a very rare 250cc twin port OHV Motobécane • Certainly a fast lightweight vintage machine • Ideal as a Banbury Run entrant For many years Motobécane was France’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles. Charles Benoit and Abel Bardin joined in 1922 and designed their first motorcycle in 1923, a 175cc single cylinder two-stroke-engined bike. By the 1930s Motobécane was producing a best-selling range of motorcycles. In 1933, they produced their first four-stroke machine with 250cc. The bedrock of production however, was ‘bread and butter’ two-strokes and uncomplicated sidevalves such as the Model B33A. During the 1930s, they manufactured a longitudinal shaft-drive inline-four engine motorcycle in 500 and 750cc. During this period, the firm entered road racing competitions and won the Bol d’or endurance race. This is a very rare 250cc twin port overhead-valve Motobécane, believed to be a Model B33A. Certainly a fast lightweight vintage machine, it would be an ideal entrant for the world-famous Banbury run.

At the time of its introduction, the B31 was BSA’s sole all-new model, joining the lightweight ‘C’ and heavyweight ‘M’ ranges carried over from pre-war days. Produced initially with rigid frame and telescopic front fork, the B31 gained (optional) plunger rear suspension in 1949 and an allnew swinging-arm frame in ’54. A good all-round performer by the standards of its time, the B31 could cruise comfortably all day at 60mph while returning 75-plus miles per gallon, virtues that endeared it to private owners and police forces alike. A much enjoyed motorcycle speaks volumes for its usability. This BSA B31 has been restored and enjoyed since the rest. It had been registered overseas from new at some point and is now UK registered. Said to be ‘running well’ and ready to go, this is a correct numbers machine that is offered with the V5C.

AMC later (postwar) absorbed Francis-Barnett, James, and Norton. In 1941 Matchless motorcycles introduced telescopic front forks called “Teledraulic” forks, considered by some to be the first major innovation in British front suspension in 25 years. By 1956 they had eight models in their line up, but the number had dwindled in 1965. The G3L was the first to feature the “Teledraulic” front forks.

The company became part of the Tube Investments group in 1960 and this brought the Raleigh, Norman, Phillips and Hercules brands of moped under the same ownership. The obvious course of action was to rationalise these four ranges into one common series and it was decided to license the Mobylette range of mopeds produced by Motobécane in France. From then on, Raleigh, Phillips and Norman mopeds were effectively re-badged Mobylettes, while Raleigh first applied the ‘Runabout’ name to the RM6, which was built in various versions from May 1963 until February 1971 when production of all Raleigh mopeds ceased. This well presented and authentically restored 1968 model looks to be the later RM6 version with the fuel tank mounted above the rear wheel.

• Rare in this country French made 1958 Terrot Tenor 125 • Authentically restored back to standard condition • UK registered and supplied with a current V5C Terrot of Dijon was the largest motorcycle manufacturer in France for much of the first half of the twentieth century, having absorbed Magnat-Debon in the late 1920’s. During the early 1920s Terrot built JAP powered 350cc machines with 2 speed gearboxes and after WW2 launched the 125 EP named after the designer, Edmond Padovani. This was the machine that proved to be the lifeblood of Terrot throughout the fifties together with a range of OHV singles up to 500cc in capacity, a number of two-strokes and some rather nice scooters. The arrival of cheaper cars and other factors led to the decline in popularity of the motorcycle and in 1960 the marque was absorbed by Peugeot. This nicely presented and authentically restored 1958 Tenor has been owned by the vendor for about 5 years. Not used much in that time it will need some recommissioning before use, but paintwork and chrome are all good. An interesting bike that is rare in the UK and supplied with a current V5C.

• Re-imported back to the UK a few years ago • Restored to a high standard, rarely used since • On display in the house and used on dry days The Norton P11 was a 745cc air cooled OHV parallel twin motorcycle made by Norton-Villiers from 1967 to 1969. Designed as an extremely light high power-to-weight ratio desert racer. The Norton P11 gained a reputation as a ‘desert racer’ in the late 1960s but by 1969 lighter two stroke desert racers began to dominate the sport and the Norton had begun Commando production and it was selling well. Norton ended production of the P11 series to concentrate on the Commando, which used a number of ideas developed on the P11 series. This Norton P11 was reimported back to the UK a few years ago. It has been restored to a high standard and has not been used much since that restoration, in fact it has been on display in a house and used only on dry days. It appears tom be an all correct numbers machine, as verified by the Norton Owners Club. The motorcycle comes complete with a current V5C and other paperwork, including receipts for work carried out, handbooks, and a 1967 magazine that covers the Norton range.

Although the KH250 isn’t quite as powerful as the slightly larger models produced by Kawasaki, it still packs a punch, and you can’t help but smile at the sound and smell of that engine! There’s no denying that there’s something very special about a two-stroke triple, and in terms of looks, at least, the KH was a worthy machine even up against its X7 and LC rivals, back in the day.

• This Honda X11 CB1100 SF-Y is certainly different • Not many sold during its short production run • Part of a private collection of machines There is a fair chance that you won’t have heard of the X11, which is nothing to be ashamed of as this slightly naked bike from Honda was offered for just four short years. However, if you have previously heard, or indeed heard and forgotten about, this cracker of a ‘super naked’, you may have heard people say that it was a desirable machine. Launched in late 1999, with the X11 Honda beat the world to building a proper fast naked bike. Based around the firm’s CBR1100XX Super Blackbird hyperbike, the X11 was, according to Honda, ‘a full-bodied naked’ with outstanding performance to exhilarate.’ And with a claimed 134bhp and 86ft. lb on tap from its re-tuned Blackbird motor, it more than lived up to this hype. This Honda X11, aka the CB1100 SF-Y, is certainly different. There were not many sold during its brief time in the Honda brochure. Having been part of a private collection of interesting machines, this particular example presents in an attractive Red. It is believed the bike has not been run since December 2021.

However, in 1999 the Yamaha Fazer 600 was the best-selling bike in its class, and by 2002 the firm had sold over 83,000 units. The FZS had riders queuing up for it because of its rideability, in part due to its smooth engine. Yamaha got the basics right with the Fazer, and that’s what makes it such a great bike. The seat was comfortable, the tank range was long, the fairing effective, the brakes sharp and the motor strong in the mid-range and extremely reliable.

• A rare French model in the UK • ‘Barn find’ condition • Purchased and imported by the owner Peugeot built their first motorcycle in 1898 with a De DionBouton engine mounted on the rear wheel. In 1901, spurred on by the success of the French built Werner Brothers and Company Motobicyclette, Peugeot produced their own motorcycle using a Swiss made Zürcher and Lüthi (ZL) engine. The Peugeot 500 M, a 500cc dual overhead camshaft model appeared in 1914, the first of this type. In 1930, Peugeot absorbed Automoto which had been a pioneer in the field of motorcycles and scooters. Peugeot was the leading French motorcycle manufacturer until the 1950s producing many models. Despite the now commonplace brand, this Peugeot 107 is indeed a rare model in the UK. Discovered in a French barn in 2017 in its current condition this 107 was purchased and brought to the UK by the current owner. At the time of viewing the motorcycle, the engine was heard running well. This lovely find is a very original machine with what are believed to be correct numbers.

• This Suzuki 600cc Bandit has had just one previous owner • Showing just over 9,000 miles from new • This machine is in excellent order for the years The Suzuki Bandit 600 (code name GSF600) was so successful it spawned a whole class of budget middleweight roadsters. The recipe was simple, take one aging but acceptable Super-sport engine, clothe it in a basic, straightforward roadster chassis and price it as keenly as possible. The first Suzuki Bandits proved best sellers, great for novices and as all-rounders. All versions, including the half-faired versions, are great value. There’s an extremely healthy community for Suzuki Bandit 600 owners, and prospective buyers may want to consider joining the owners’ groups. This Suzuki 600cc Bandit has had just one previous owner. Displaying just over 9,000 miles from new, this machine is in excellent order for the year and has been meticulously looked after since 2003. It is presented complete with a current V5C, and a host of MOT certificates to back up mileage.

• Formerly part of a private collection of machines • Restored to a good standard little use since • Correct numbers machine The ‘Daytona’ name was derived from American rider Buddy Elmore’s win at the 1966 Daytona 200 race held at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. He achieved an average speed of 96.6 mph on a ‘works special’ Triumph Tiger 100. The 500 cc Triumph Tiger 100 Daytona (T100T) was developed by Triumph’s Chief Engineer and designer Doug Hele and launched as a production motorcycle the following year. Based on the setup developed for the 1966 Daytona races, the Daytona was fitted with a new cylinder head and twin Amal Monobloc carburettors. In the head, the valve angle was reduced by two degrees and the intake valve size increased as a result of testing. A pronounced power step at 3,500 rpm helped it to compete with the advanced designs from Japanese manufacturers like Honda. Having been part of a private collection of machines, this Daytona has been restored to a good standard and has had little use since. A correct numbers machine, it is offered complete with a current V5C and paperwork, including lots of old MOT certificates. It will require light recommissioning before use.

Finally released in 1973, with its DOHC 900cc engine offering a top speed of over 130mph it easily became the fastest mass produced bike in the world. This authentically restored early Z1 has been part of a private collection of 1970s superbikes for the past 12 years. It has undergone a full ‘no expense spared rebuild’ using original Kawasaki spares where possible including a full genuine four into four exhaust system. The engine has enjoyed a full overhaul by Engine Techniks and the fuel tank has recently been professionally relined by Tank Care Products to resist up to 100% ethanol and the carburettors have been fully overhauled.

• Ex Bud Jackson Aermacchi 350 MGP Classic race bike • Thought to be the bike Bud rode to 4th place in 1988 • Appears to have not been used since 1989 Senior MGP In 1960 Harley-Davidson motorcycles purchased 50% of Aermacchi’s motorcycle division with the Italian branch of the brand named ‘Aermacchi-Harley-Davidson’. By the 60s they had become associated with performance bikes selling a range of sporty 250 and 350 singles that very often became the basis for home-made race bikes. Part of a deceased estate, unfortunately not much is known about the history of this bike. It appears to be based on a mid-1960s road going 350, a popular conversion in its day due to the quality and performance of the basic bike. The carb is a Dellorto SS1 35 and there is an invoice suggesting the engine has had tuning work. The vendor was a keen sponsor of local riders and it is thought that Bud Jackson rode this bike to 4th place in the Junior Classic MGP in 1988 and 8th the year after. The race number suggests it was last ridden in the 1989 Senior Classic Manx before being stored in the owner’s house for the last 23 years. It comes supplied with an owner’s manual, a workshop manual and an interesting race setup booklet together with a couple of spare cylinder heads and a spare rear sprocket. *All hammer prices are subject to a Buyer’s Premium of 15% plus VAT

Its claim to fame came in the early 1970s when it won the motorcycle section of “The Roof of Africa Rally”. During the rally, the RT was leading the cars and eventually came fourth behind 3 cars in a field of 80 which included 11 motorcycles. A very good 351cc two stroke single (with ‘Autolube’), that made 31 HP, was combined with a 5 speed transmission. A 19 inch front wheel and limited travel on the short swingarm, along with a hefty 245lbs, all contributed to less than ideal dirt performance. It was even a good performer on the tarmac. This 1972 Yamaha 360 is an ideal little off-road machine and is offered at sale in good condition with room for easy improvement, having come from a cherished private collection. We have been advised it is running and it is offered complete with a current V5C and at ‘no reserve’.

• Interesting barn find project that has been family owned for over 60 years • Fitted with the correct Bronze head, engine turns over with compression • No paperwork but supplied with some correspondence from Rudge Club The Rudge Ulster was made famous by Graham Walker’s victory in the 1928 Ulster Grand Prix, the first time a race had been won at over 80mph. The bike became the mainstay of 1930s racing, even Enzo Ferrari running a team in Italy using Rudges. The supply of race machinery ended around the mid-thirties with the death of Rudge principal J.V. Pugh ultimately causing the demise of the Rudge concern. This barn find Rudge Ulster has been in the same family ownership for over 60 years and is in need of complete restoration but appears to be about 90% complete. Amazingly original with maybe the only major part missing being the headlamp, the engine turns over with compression and the all important bronze cylinder head is in place. The original looking plates suggest the bike had a registration number of ‘EYV 178’, but no paperwork has been found to back this up. A fascinating challenge to bring this rare bike back to life.

In 1954, the T110 model was introduced, a higher performance version of the Thunderbird. The success of these models and the 500-cc TR5 Trophy led to the creation of a 650-cc TR6 Trophy model. The TR6 was developed and produced specifically for the US market, in particular, California desert racing.

Established as a Victorian bicycle maker, the company began under the name of Hotchkiss, Mayo & Meek. The company name was changed to Coventry Eagle in 1897 when John Meek left the company. By 1898 they had begun to experiment with motorised vehicles and by 1899, had produced their first motorcycle. The motorcycles were hand built from components and finished carefully, Coventry-Eagle motorcycles proved reliable and by the First World War the range included Villiers Engineering and JAP engines. Formerly owned by the late Geoff Davies past president of the VMCC. This little lovely Coventry Eagle has been owned by Geoff for many years. Like some of the other machines, this was a favourite lightweight machine too. Used for local club runs and many other events in his ownership.

The company increasingly turned to JAP to power bikes not using an OK engine. In the 1922 TT OK-Supreme placed sixth and seventh, with the fastest lap set by Wal Handley at 51 mph. Frank Longman was the only TT winner, in the 1928 Lightweight class with a JAP model. For the 1930 Isle of Man TT, a new 250cc machine with the cams fitted to the vertical tower made its first appearance. A road version was made available the following year. In 1934, another overhead cam OK made its debut at the Olympia show. Available in road, trials and race trim and in 250 and 350 capacities, it continued in production until early 1939.

• Formerly owned by the late Geoff Davies past president of the VMCC • Purchased in 1988 and used for many club runs and events • Not used for the last year due to health The AJS Model 18 was developed from a design from the 1930s, despite which it was still being manufactured 30 years later. The AJS was updated when a springer frame rear suspension was made available for 1949, to become the Model 18S. The suspension was a vast improvement on the rigid rear end - which had given a bouncy ride. Each of the two ‘Candlestick’ shocks held only 50cc of SAE 20 weight oil. They were prone to leaks and were replaced by the larger diameter ‘Jampot’ shocks on the 1951 version. A 1951 AJS Model 18, it was formerly owned by the late Geoff Davies past president of the VMCC. The motorcycle was purchased in 1988 and used for many club runs and events. The bike has not been used for the past year, due to ill health. Believed to be a correct numbers machine, it is offered here with a V5C and various paperwork. It will of course require recommissioning before use.

In order to develop the CB350F into the CB400F, Honda increased the bore and modified the cylinder head to raise the compression ratio. In a first for Honda, a sixth ratio was fitted to the gearbox. Instead of aping the styling of the bigger style CB750, like the 350F had, the CB400F had a more café racer look with lower handlebars, rearset footpegs and more svelte styling. It also gained one of its most recognisable attributes, a swooping four-into-one exhaust system. Formerly owned by the past president of the VMCC, the late Geoff Davies, we understand this Honda was purchased new by Mr Davies. Used by him as a participant in many events including trips to Europe, this machine has been kept in a regularly run state and maintained consistently during ownership.

• Purchased by the current owner from his friend in 1996 • Partly dismantled to repaint the frame, the current owner then built it back up • Mostly original paint and tinware (mudguard repainted as was the frame) Second only to Honda in the number of two-wheelers manufactured but better known for their two stroke machines, Suzuki joined the fourstroke revolution in 1977 with the GS750. A year later the full 1000cc version was launched setting a new benchmark in the superbike division. In 1979 the ‘S’ version arrived sporting a nose cone fairing, 18” rear wheel and race inspired paintwork going on to dominate AMA superbike racing in the USA with riders such as Wes Cooley and Graeme Crosby. The Suzuki GS1000S model was a super sports variation of the standard GS1000, with a distinctive paint scheme and fairing (aka the Wes Cooley replica). The Suzukis were noted for their all-around performance — a blend of a good chassis and suspension and a powerful engine. Purchased by the current owner from his friend in 1996, the bike had become partly dismantled in order to repaint the frame. The current owner then built it back up retaining much of its original paint and tinware. Retaining its original exhaust system and many other features.

• Rare 1978 Ducati 900 GTS in mostly original unrestored finish • The bike has been in the same family ownership since 1998 • Electric start model supplied with a current V5C and a MOT By the ‘60s Ducati had become associated with performance bikes selling a range of sporty 250 and 350 singles. In response to the demand for larger capacity bikes, chief engineer Fabio Taglioni designed the classic V-Twin bevel drive engine. This began a tradition of race-winning V-Twins that have gone on to dominate World Superbike racing over the years. The Ducati 900 GTS was only produced in 1977 and ‘78 and used Ducati’s 864cc bevel drive V-Twin fitted with the all important electric start and more pleasing styling than its predecessor the 860GT. This example has been in the same family ownership since 1998 and is offered in mostly original unrestored finish with probably only the master cylinder being non standard. The vendor has kept the bike serviced throughout his ownership and recently had a good check over carried out by ‘2 Machs Motorcycles’ including a carb service with new floats and needles, a new battery, oil and filter change and an MOT. A good looking and still very usable bike showing a credible 15,750 miles on the clock it comes supplied with a current V5C and MOT.

• Thought, by the vendor, to be the last surviving 550cc Blackburne engined model • Used regularly on veteran runs and has proved to be very reliable • Run recently and supplied with a current V5C registration document The Massey Motor Co. of Belgrave Road Birmingham produced motorcycles from 1923 to 1929. In1923 having left the Massey-Arran company the previous year, E. J. Massey produced a new marque under his own name, the Massey motorcycle was available from January 1923 and had a 545cc Blackburne engine for either solo or sidecar use. A special feature was internal expanding brakes for both wheels and soon there were further models, with an OHV version of the 348cc Blackburne, plus 292cc and 346cc bikes with JAP engines. A cheaper version of the 292cc sv JAP model also became available a little later. This had two-speed chain-cum-belt transmission and V-rim brakes. This rare 1923 Massey with its Blackburne 555cc engine and 3 speed Burman gearbox is thought by the vendor to be the last surviving example. There were very few Massey motorcycles actually produced and they were primarily used with a sidecar attached. The vendor has enjoyed riding the machine and has completed many veteran runs over the last few years and reports it has proved to be very reliable. *All hammer prices are subject to a Buyer’s Premium of 15% plus VAT

The D1 (the original model) 125cc was available initially only with a rigid rear suspension, although within three years the range was enhanced to include an optional plunger rear suspension.

This proved to be an immediate success, starting a long tradition of achievement in all branches of motorcycle sport. The XT500 launched in 1975 was their first large capacity four stroke trail bike and dominated the early Paris-Dakar rallies. This XT500 has been restored to a high standard keeping a good degree of originality. The rebuild was carried out using genuine Yamaha parts wherever possible including an original exhaust system. As a bike that was invariably given serious use, especially off road, it’s rare to find an XT in this condition and replacement genuine parts are getting increasingly hard to find and sometimes ridiculously expensive to buy.

The motorcycle was manufactured by Honda in Japan from 1972 to 1974. At the time, the CB350F was the smallest capacity four cylinder motorcycle ever to enter into full-scale production. There were no changes to the 1973 model, but Honda designated the 1974 bike the CB350F1. Soon after production was discontinued, it was replaced by the CB400F. Although Honda had a 350 Twin that critics said was more powerful, lighter, and cheaper, many felt the 350 Four was faster and smoother running. Currently displaying a total of 32,160km (approximately 20,000 miles), this example of a Honda four is rarely seen in the UK. Last serviced in 2015, the machine is in generally good condition and unrestored, apart from a new exhaust system.

• Purchased by the vendor’s late father in 1965 • Not fully restored until after the vendor retired during 2015 • Probably one of the best Matchless H2s available today A development of the Matchless Model 8B which had proven itself during WW1, the H2 was unusual in being offered as a motorcycle combination only, with integral sidecar chassis, sprung sidecar wheel, swinging arm rear suspension and electric lighting. Among the most capable motorcycle combinations of its day, the Model H lasted in production until 1927 with many examples featuring the advanced overhead inlet / side exhaust valve M.A.G. engine. Only nine years old at the time, the vendor nonetheless remembers helping his father clear straw and hay bales off this Matchless H2 Combination when they bought it in 1965. A restoration began not long after but then stalled only to be restarted after the vendor himself retired during 2015. Allowed access to the Beamish Museum’s similar machine by Ian Bean, the seller also sought help from marque specialist Pat Gill and even replacement parts from Switzerland where the M.A.G engine was originally made. The result is a real credit to the vendor and quite possibly one of the best Matchless H2s available today. It comes complete with a current V5C.

• Rare standard and original Suzuki RG500 Grand Prix replica • Includes original tool kit, owners book and both keys • Supplied with a genuine workshop manual and a current V5C The Suzuki Motor Co. was established in 1909 by Michio Suzuki to produce machinery for the cotton industry. Famous for performance two strokes, probably the most sought after model from that era is the RG500 Gamma square 4 sports bike, based on the Grand Prix bike that dominated 500cc racing in the late 1970s and 1980s ridden to world championship success by Barry Sheene, Marco Luccinelli and Franco Uncini. Produced for just three model years between 1985 and 1987, the two-stroke Suzuki RG500 Gamma was the closest thing to a purpose-built race bike most people were likely to come across at that time. Run recently, this 1987 Mk 2 version of the rare and collectible RG500 has been part of a private collection for a few years and is presented in very original condition. Not many RGs have survived in standard trim, even down to the genuine silencer boxes, original tool kit, owner’s manual and both original keys. A fast-appreciating classic, this bike comes together with a single seat converter, a few old MOTs, some receipts, a genuine Suzuki workshop manual and a current V5C.

Completely restyled and with more than 200 mechanical modifications, the T160 was the bike that belatedly dragged Triumph into the modern era. This 1975 Triumph T160 has been restored at no expense over four years in a quality restoration that has been done to a concours standard. The motorcycle has had very little use since restoration and has been on display. When viewed by us, the current vendor started it up (from cold) and it appeared to run like a Swiss watch.

• Designed by Craig Vetter for the American market • Originally destined to be a BSA using the Rocket 3 engine but circumstances changed • Sought after and desirable motorcycle The Triumph X-75 Hurricane was a ‘factory special’ motorcycle designed by fairing specialist Craig Vetter in the early 1970s, primarily with a view to the American market. The X-75 had swooping glassfibre bodywork, a three US-gallon petrol tank, lowered gearing and a distinctive triple exhaust on the right-hand side. The motorcycle is credited with creating a new class of motorcycle, ‘The Cruiser’. Originally destined to be a BSA using the Rocket 3 engine but circumstances changed. It was ultimately released as a Triumph Hurricane model in 1973, the BSA factory having closed its doors in late 1972. Approximately 1,200 X75 Hurricanes were produced making them a very sought after and desirable motorcycle. This matching numbers example has been the subject of improvement with a large file of bills to support the amount and nature of the work carried out. Showing only c.933 miles since the work was carried out, it is UK registered on a V5C.

• Purchased in a dismantled state and restored over the last year • Full engine and gearbox rebuilt, as with many other components • All paintwork to a very high standard The CB900F first appeared in 1980 as Honda’s latest foray into the ever-increasing naked muscle bike market. The machine took styling cues from its bigger brother, the Honda CBX1000, and used a power plant derived from the company’s then revolutionary CB750KZ. It was an air-cooled, four-stroke, transverse four-cylinder, DOHC, 4 valves per cylinder Cruiser motorcycle. The CB900F’s design was aimed at European markets, rather than the usual focus on the United States, where it was not available from the initial launch. At the dealer, the CB900F competed with larger capacity bikes like the Kawasaki KZ1000, Suzuki GS1000, and Yamaha XS1100. Honda’s advertising proclaimed the bike to be “a thundering Super Sports bike with devastating performance and an unwavering stamina”. Some reviewers described it as “the best Honda had built for the street”. Purchased in a dismantled state and restored over the last year, this machine has had a full engine and gearbox rebuild, along with many other components. All of the paintwork has been applied to a very high standard. We have been advised this machine is ‘running well’. It comes complete with a current V5C and various bills from Dave Silver Spares.

• Currently, family-owned since 1964 • Restored in the early 1980s and not used much since • To be sold complete with its Monmouthshire registration where it has resided all of its life Neal were motorcycles produced by S. G. Neal of Sparkbrook, Birmingham, from 1910 to 1922. This firm assembled machines from bought-in parts, using Precision engines of various capacities. They were not listed or seen at shows and the motorcycles were typical of the era. After the end of the First World War, they returned to the market with machines fitted with 318cc Dalm two-stroke engines. Post-war they were generally listed as Neal-Dalm, and as the bicycle trade was their main line of business, the previously small production of motorcycles soon ceased. Currently, family-owned since 1964, this example was restored in the early 1980s and not used much since. Complete with its Monmouthshire registration, where it has resided all its life, this motorcycle is believed to be the only known surviving example left of a low production run. Accompanying the Neal are some old handwritten letters from 1964 and a current V5C. The Neal Dalm will require some light recommissioning before use.

However, the case of the post-war Vincent, particularly the twins, is quite interesting because they were raced well beyond the moment that the factory stopped production. For about 15 years, racers were using the Vincent to adapt it to all disciplines like race track, sidecars, grasstrack, drag strip; evidence that the power-plant one of the most competitive available at that time. This Norvin (Norton/Vincent) project has the potential to be turned into a beautiful machine once completed. The current Vendor has not finished the project due to other circumstances in his life.

• This Monza has had Light restoration with stainless steel exhaust system • New battery and tyres fitted recently • Registered 31st March, 1981 The V50 Monza was the baby brother to the V7 and Le Mans models. Displacing a modest 500cc and producing an even more modest 48 horsepower, the Monza configuration provided for bigger valves and different carbs over that of the standard V50. Intending to introduce an entirely new group of riders to the mystique and cachet of the Moto Guzzi brand, the V50 was an attempt to create a smaller, more approachable and more affordable slot in the Moto Guzzi lineup. V50 Monza’s were a real gem that is often overlooked. Essentially a ‘Baby Le Mans’, but their lower weight and smaller size make them a nice bike for back roads or local cruising. This Monza has had light restoration with stainless steel exhaust system, new battery and tyres fitted recently. Registered on 31st March 1981, the machine now benefits from being registered Historic. Among work done, the frame and wheels have been powder coated. An example of a very desirable and rare lightweight Sports model of the Motor Guzzi V50 range, a model that played an important part in the 100 years history of Moto Guzzi.

Launched in 1999 it was a worthy, good–looking roadster using Moto Guzzi’s traditional and characteristic transverse 1100 V-twin shaft mated to a raft of top spec cycle parts. You got 80 horsepower and 5.8 gallons of fuel capacity – this wasn’t an outright sportbike but it was great for stylish in town duties or ample sport touring with some bags.

• This Honda Gold Wing has been restored to a high standard • The paintwork and chrome are of a good quality • It has been on display and rarely used except when dry The Honda Gold Wing is a series of touring motorcycles manufactured by Honda. Gold Wings feature shaft drive and a flat engine. Following the success of the ground-breaking CB750 superbike, in 1972 the company assembled an R&D design team to explore concepts for a new flagship motorcycle. The project leader was Shoichiro Irimajiri, who in the 1960s had designed Honda’s multi-cylinder MotoGP engines and their Formula One V12 engine. The 1974 Gold Wing with its flat-four shaft-drive powertrain used technologies both from earlier motorcycle and automotive designs. Very much a touring motorcycle, the Gold Wing was the first Japanese production motorcycle with a water-cooled four-stroke engine. In September 1974 the press said, “The world’s biggest motorcycle manufacturer’s first attack on the over-750cc capacity market...”. It was introduced at the Cologne Motorcycle Show in October 1974. This Honda Gold Wing has been restored to a high standard with the paintwork and chrome presenting as ‘good’ quality. It has been on display and used rarely, and only on dry days. All correct numbers machine with various paperwork, we have been advised that it is running well. A current V5C is on file.

The T140 was the second generation in the Bonneville series developed from the earlier 650 cc (40 cu in) T120 Bonneville and was produced by Triumph in a number of versions, including limited editions, from 1973 until 1983 when the company was declared bankrupt. Licensed production of the T140 Bonneville was continued by Les Harris between 1985 and 1988 at Newton Abbot in Devon, these machines became known as ‘Harris’ or ‘Devon’ Bonnevilles. Currently owned for the last few years, this Bonneville was restored around ten years ago and finished in a striking Purple and Silver. The bike was heard running very well at the time the vendor and the bike were visited by ourselves.

• The Honda CB750 on offer has formed part of a collection of motorcycles • Restored to a very good standard a few years ago • Not used much since its restoration, and with four previous owners The Honda CB750 is an air-cooled, transverse, in-line four-cylinder engine motorcycle made by Honda over several generations for year models 1969–2003 as well as 2007 with an upright or standard riding posture. It is often called the original Universal Japanese Motorcycle (UJM). Although other manufacturers had marketed the transverse, overhead camshaft, inline four-cylinder engine configuration and the layout had been used in racing engines prior to World War II, Honda popularized the configuration with the CB750, and the layout subsequently became the dominant sport bike engine layout. Having formed part of a collection of motorcycles, this Honda CB750 has been the subject of restoration to a very good standard just a few years ago. Post restoration, the 750 has been used sparingly by the current owner. Not used much since its restoration, however, the machine presents very well and its condition is holding up. It would be a draw for the enthusiast at any motorcycle show. We have been advised it is running well and with four previous owners.

• Unrestored and fabulous patina • Owned by Rudge enthusiast and chef Simon Morris • Modified over the years into a “Sports Special” The full potential of Rudge’s four-valves-per-cylinder design was slow to emerge. In 1928 Graham Walker’s works ‘500’ became the first motorcycle to win a road race, the Ulster Grand Prix, at an average speed in excess of 80mph, a feat which led to the introduction of the legendary ‘Ulster’ sports model. Unrestored and wearing fabulous history in the form of its patina, this machine was owned by Rudge enthusiast and chef Simon Morris. Over the years it has been modified into a “Sports Special” and even took part in the 1990 TT Classic Lap (provenance included). It has been off the road for 20 plus years and dry stored indoors. The engine turns with good compression and now is running ‘very well’. A great motorcycle for both the track and the road, and it is also Banbury Run eligible. Recently, the ‘Sports Special’ has had a new bearing in the gearbox and a top-end overhaul, new cables and new tyres with tubes.

• Interesting trials bike based on a Bantam 175 • Extensively modified throughout its life • Alloy rims and one piece tank and seat unit Around the turn of the century BSA started making bicycles and progressed onto motorcycles a few years later. BSA went on to be one of the world’s largest producers of motorcycles up until its demise in the early 1970s. BSA’s best selling model was the Bantam first seen in 1948 as a 125cc and in fact became the bestselling British-made bike of all time. The ubiquitous little 2 stroke has been the basis for many specials over the years and seen use in all branches of motorcycle sport, especially in trials events. This interesting little trials bike is based on a 1966 Bantam 175 that has been extensively modified throughout its life. The frame has been altered to get the correct geometry for trials use and it is fitted with a bespoke one piece tank and seat unit. The forks look to be later hydraulically damped items and the wheel rims are alloy with conical hubs front and rear.

Around the turn of the century they started making bicycles and progressed onto motorcycles a few years later.

The singles especially lent themselves to competition use and many saw use in road race or off road events.

• This BSA A75 RV has been restored by Rob North (the ‘triple’ expert) • Restored c.8 years ago to a very high standard • In the very rare Blue and Chrome colour scheme In 1962 the BSA/Triumph understood that they needed to develop a new engine, as the vertical twin had more or less reached its design limitations. They adhered to the old Edward Turner dictum that a parallel-twin engine should not exceed 650cc or 6,500 rpm, while marques like Norton and Royal Enfield had taken their twins to 750 size, but not with resounding success. The company were actually looking for an entirely new engine concept, such as an inline four, perhaps with an overhead camshaft, but that would take time and money and an interim carry-over concept was needed, the OHV triple. This BSA A75 RV has been restored by Rob North (the triple expert). Restored c.8 years ago to a very high standard, in the very rare Blue and Chrome colour scheme. Not used for the last few years due to work commitments. Stored in a dry environment since it came back to the UK., it is an all correct numbers machine and will be run before the auction.

WWII left NSU’s factories completely destroyed, but they resumed production of their pre-war models in 1946 and introduced the MAX in 1953. The Max had some very innovative features including a monocoque frame made from pressed steel which was later inherited by the Supermax. By 1955 NSU had become the largest motorcycle producer in the world. Part of a deceased estate, unfortunately not much is known about the history of this bike. It appears to be based on a mid 1950s road-going 250 Supermax with its twin shock rear suspension, a popular conversion in its day due to the quality of the basic bike. This one has alloy rims, alloy mudguards, a single seat, a neat little Smiths tachometer and a bespoke alloy fuel tank.

Designed by Phil Walker, AMC knew that it had to be a 650cc but wanted to use as many cycle parts from the Model 11 as possible. The cylinders could not be bored out further so the stroke was lengthened from 72.8mm to 79.3mm, resulting in a capacity of 646cc. That meant developing a new crankshaft and primary chaincase, which also provided the opportunity to add a Lucas alternator. Volume production began in September 1958. Formerly part of a private collection of motorcycles, this AJS Model 31 was restored a few years ago to a very high standard and then used and enjoyed since its restoration.

The fastest motorcycle you could buy, at the time. Unit construction allowed Vincent to combine the engine and gearbox into a single casing. Philip Vincent summarised his frame design philosophy in his memoirs, writing “What isn’t present takes up no space, cannot bend, and weighs nothing — so eliminate the frame tubes! ‘GDG 339’ had several owners prior to 1959, as documented in the accompanying old-style logbook, and has been kept in dry storage since c.1966 when its then-owner - a Mr. Cooper - dismantled it and rebuilt the engine. Invoices for parts supplied by Ross Motors Ltd, of Hinckley, are included in the sale together with an expired tax disc dated June 1967. The machine had a sidecar attached during the early 1960s and retains some of the mountings. Known deviations from factory specification - fitted in period - include Black Shadow carburettors and inlet manifolds and a Series C Girdraulic front fork, both of which modifications are considered desirable upgrades.

• Part of a small private collection, restored to be used on vintage runs and rallies • Showing a good degree of originality with lots of paperwork detailing the bikes history • Will need some recommissioning and supplied with a Buff log book and a current V5C The Vincent Rapide and Black Shadow range have become some of the most desirable and iconic bikes of the era. This Shadow was bought by the vendor in 1997 who discovered that it had a non-matching rear frame member, at some time a previous owner and his wife had both owned Vincents and it appears that the swinging arms had been transposed. In 2004, with the help of the Vincent Owners Club, the vendor was put in touch with a club member who had the original Shadow rear frame. He was happy to reunite the parts with the correct bike and correspondence detailing the exchange is included as well as the two continuation buff log books tracking the various changes. Following the reuniting of the rear frame with the engine the VOC issued a Certificate of Authenticity and the original registration number was also re-assigned to the bike, all correspondence with DVLA is included. The electrics have been upgraded to 12v with coil ignition added for easier starting, the original parts are included together with a current V5C.

The engine was put together by Arthur Jakeman, who built the 3 cylinder Triumph engines for the race team and all of the LP Williams Legend specials. This first Renegade (PHL 542R) was intended as a showpiece for the company and proved to be too expensive to duplicate, but a second one was built in 1998 for a customer who would not take no for an answer. Trevor Gleadall, then proprietor of L P Williams, owned this machine from 1994 until 2006 when it was purchased by the vendor. It has been dry stored in a heated room as part of a private collection before being lightly used in 2021. Since 2006 it has had a sympathetic cosmetic makeover. Period mirrors (BMW) have been fitted for safety to match the existing original BMW indicators. The bike is featured in magazine articles in Classic Bike Guide issues May and October 1994 and comes supplied with a few old MOTs, invoices and a current V5C. *All hammer prices are subject to a Buyer’s Premium of 15% plus VAT

By this time Vincent HRD believed that the Brampton fork had outlived its value, but they had resisted adopting the increasingly common telescopic forks, feeling that they were not sufficiently rigid in torsion, did not offer enough adjustment, and did not handle well when ridden hard when a sidecar was attached. The replacement was a new Vincent design called the Girdraulic fork. The current vendor has enjoyed this 1949 HRD Rapide since 1960.

The original 850 Le Mans was a café racer with clip-on handlebars and a bikini nose fairing, but in the face of more and more powerful bikes from other manufacturers later models were developed more as sports tourers with a three-quarter fairing. It was a marketing success. This 1978 Moto Guzzi Le Mans was purchased 12 years ago. Part of a small private collection, this Le Mans is a very original machine with correct numbers.

• A rare Russian made motorcycle, a copy of an early BMW flat twin • This bike was sold new by the official Ural importer as a solo in 2000 • Supplied with original fairing and leg shields, 12 months MOT and a V5C In 1940, the Soviet Union acquired the design and production techniques for BMW R71 motorcycles and sidecars with the first M-72 model launched in 1941. Initially, the Ural was built for the military but in the late 1950s, the KMZ plant in Ukraine assumed the task of supplying the military and the Irbit Motorcycle Works focused on making bikes for domestic consumers. In the late 1950s the full production of the plant was turned over to nonmilitary production. The export of URALs started in 1953, at first to developing countries and between 1973 and 1979 they were marketed in the UK as Cossack motorcycles. This no reserve 650 Red Star model was supplied by the official UK importer in 2000 as a solo without the reverse gear fitted to the sidecar version. Recently MOT’d it has a new battery and alternator fitted and comes supplied with its original fairing and leg shields as well as a current V5C.

The engine had lower compression than the Dominator (at 7.6:1) and was fitted with a single 376 Amal Monobloc carburettor giving 55 bhp (41 kW) at 6500 rpm. However the design produced excessive vibration at high revs, so the compression ratio was reduced. The Atlas shared many cycle parts with the last of the Dominator twins and had Norton’s four-speed gearbox and heavy-duty clutch. Electrics were 6-volt and it had Roadholder forks, adjustable Girling rear shocks and a slimline Featherbed frame. In 1964 the Atlas was upgraded to 12-volt electrics, and gained a second carburettor and wider fork yokes.

Formerly part of a private collection of motorcycles, this Norton was discovered as a ‘project’ a while ago. Some work will need to be carried out before putting the machine back on the road, however, it is an all correct numbers machine and offered here with a VMCC dating certificate. It comes complete with a current V5C and it is offered at ‘no reserve’.

Frame No: GC23389 Engine No: GC23389

• Formerly part of a private collection of motorcycles • All correct and matching numbers machine • An older restoration and still holding up well From 1968 the Thunderbolt benefited from a number of minor improvements including a longer kick start to make starting easier and metal tank badges to replace the earlier plastic ones, which had a tendency to crack. An Amal Concentric carburettor dealt with the problems of fuel flooding experienced with the earlier monobloc carburettor, by having the float bowl arranged centrally around (concentric with, hence the name) the main jet to remove the sensitivity to fuel surge inherent in all the earlier designs. Having formerly been a part of a private collection of motorcycles, this all correct and matching numbers machine had been the subject of an older restoration and it is still holding up well. We have been informed that the BSA is ‘running well’. It comes complete with a current V5C and some old MOT Certificates.

• From a deceased estate, an interesting Norton/Velo unfinished project • c.1958 Dominator rolling chassis with a c.1953 Velo KSS 350 motor • Alloy fuel tank and single seat, alloy rims and a Tickle 2LS front brake The legendary ‘Featherbed’ frame was designed by the McCandless brothers and offered to the Norton motorcycle company to improve the performance of their racing motorcycles in 1950. It was considered revolutionary at the time and the best handling frame that a racer could have with its basic geometry being the benchmark to this day. Later adopted for Norton’s roadgoing motorcycles first being seen on the Dominator 88, it has been widely used by builders of custom specials such as the Triton. From a deceased estate, this unfinished project (Veloton or Norcette?) is an unusual combination of a c.1958 Dominator frame fitted with a c 1953 OHC Velocette KSS 350 motor. The Norton front brake has a John Tickle twin leading shoe conversion with the wheel rims being alloy, a racing single seat and a period alloy fuel tank have been fitted. A fascinating project just asking to be finished, with a lot of the spending and hard work already done, it comes with a V5 that matches the original Velocette engine. *All hammer prices are subject to a Buyer’s Premium of 15% plus VAT

• This Honda Fireblade has had thousands spent on it • All paintwork has been redone, with new fasteners • All components refurbished to a high standard The motorcycle that revolutionised sports motorcycles. The Honda CBR900RR Fireblade wiped the floor with its competitor motorcycles not by being more powerful but by being lighter. Rivals were all well over 200kg, the first Honda CBR900RR Fireblade was just 185kg which made it perform superbly. It’s still a wild ride and a surprisingly practical motorcycle too. MCN said, “the Honda CBR9000RR was the best motorcycle in its day.” This Honda Fireblade has had thousands spent on it. All paintwork has been redone, with new fasteners. All components are refurbished to a high standard. Complete brake overhaul and much more. The engine has not been touched so original mileage. It comes complete with a current V5C and a file of paperwork.

• Original matching numbers barn find Norton Dominator 500cc • Appears to have not been used since being stored away in 1958 • Last registered in 1957 and thought to have had 2 owners from new Norton was founded by James Lansdowne Norton in Birmingham in 1898 and began building motorcycles with French and Swiss engines in 1902. In 1907 a Norton with a Peugeot engine won the first Isle of Man TT race, starting a long tradition of sporting excellence. Developed for their Manx Norton race bikes, the legendary Featherbed frame eventually made its way onto the road in 1953, housing the 500cc Dominator twin-cylinder engine. From a deceased estate, it is thought that this matching numbers 88 ‘Dommie’ has only had 2 owners from new, last being used on the road in 1957/58 according to the tax disc. Bought by its second owner, some years later, it was then stored away under a workbench for at least the last 45 years. Showing a credible 7,848 miles on the speedo with original paint, the bike is amazingly standard but is obviously in need of a complete restoration. The engine turns over and there is even the original toolkit under the seat, a fascinating project supplied with a genuine Norton workshop manual and a V5 registration document. *All hammer prices are subject to a Buyer’s Premium of 15% plus VAT

and all claims, liability or damage and all related costs and expenses arising out of the proper execution by the Auctioneer of their obligations to the Seller under these Conditions, and in particular against any liability or claim which may be incurred by the Auctioneer as a result of any defect in the Lot, whether proving dangerous to human life or health or otherwise giving rise to a claim against the Auctioneer, or as a result of any default by the Seller or any breach of any of the warranties or undertakings herein by the Seller. 9.1 Where any Lot fails to sell, the Auctioneer shall notify the Seller accordingly.

If the Auctioneer does so sell the Lot, they will also be entitled to their normal commission. 10.1 Where a Lot is sold, the Auctioneer shall initiate payment, by bank transfer, of the Sale Proceeds to the Seller 14 days after the Auctioneers have received in cleared funds the Total Amount Due from the Buyer. Should no bank details be provided by the seller, the Auctioneer will effect payment by sending its cheque, drawn in favour of the Seller, 14 days after receipt of cleared funds, by first class mail at the Seller’s risk. 10.2 If before the Total Amount Due is paid by the Buyer (whether or not because the Auctioneer has given credit terms to the Buyer) the Auctioneer pays to the Seller an amount equal to the net Sale Proceeds, title in the Lot shall pass from the Seller to the Auctioneer. 10.3 In the case of overseas Sellers, the Sale Proceeds will be paid to the Seller either in Sterling or in such other currency available to the Auctioneer as may have been agreed in writing between the Seller and the Auctioneer before the date of the Sale.

So far as in the Auctioneer’s opinion it is practicable, the Auctioneer will at the Seller’s expense assist the Seller to recover the Total Amount Due from the Buyer, but the Auctioneer shall be under no obligation to institute proceedings in its own name. 11.2 If circumstances outside the Auctioneer’s control do not permit the Auctioneer to take instructions from the Seller, the Seller hereby authorises the Auctioneer, at the Seller’s expense, to agree special terms for payment of the total Amount Due; to remove, store and insure the Lot sold; to settle claims made against the Buyer or the Seller on such terms as the Auctioneer shall in its absolute discretion think fit; to take such steps as are necessary to collect the monies due by the Buyer to the Seller; and if necessary to rescind the sale and refund money to the Buyer.

306

Conditions mainly concerning the Buyer 12.1 Any motor vehicle is sold as a collector’s item and not as a means of transport. Buyers are specifically warned that any vehicle sold as such may well have had parts replaced and paint renewed or be made up of parts from other vehicles the condition of which may be difficult to establish. The Auctioneer has to rely on information as to the date, condition and authenticity provided by the Seller and does not provide its own description, and does not and cannot undertake its own inspection of vehicles or other Lot and it is the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that the Lot conforms to the description in the catalogue. The Auctioneer cannot check or verify the authenticity of the chassis or VIN number under which a vehicle is offered, but relies on the Seller’s description. Buyers should take particular care to verify in advance the authenticity of a vehicle that is claimed to have important racing, rallying or ‘ex-works’ history as it was common in period for a competition vehicle of a single identity to have more than one chassis, body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times, both in a vehicle’s ‘works’ career and thereafter in private owner hands. Sometimes ‘works’ vehicles were fitted with different registration plates, so that a vehicle could meet a particular event’s start date deadline. These historical factors may lead to there being in existence multiple and competing claimants to the same vehicle identity. 12.2 The Buyer shall be the person making the highest bid at or over Reserve (if any) that is accepted by the Auctioneer, and the Contract shall be concluded at the fall of the hammer. The Auctioneer shall have the absolute discretion to settle any dispute related to bidding at the Sale. All

sales are deemed not to be sales in the course of a business, unless notified to the contrary. 12.3 Every bidder shall be deemed to act as a principal unless the Auctioneer has, prior to the auction date, acknowledged (either by acceptance of the Bidder’s Registration Form which discloses the true principal, or otherwise in writing) that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of a disclosed principal. 12.4 The Auctioneer may in its absolute discretion refuse to accept any bid, advance the bidding as it may decide, withdraw or divide any Lot, combine any two or more Lots, and in the case of dispute may put up any Lot for auction again. 12.5 A prospective bidder should register his intention to bid for a Lot by completing fully and signing a Bidder’s Registration Form prior to executing his bid. If this has not been completed before the fall of the hammer, the Buyer shall forthwith complete the Bidder’s Registration Form. The Bidder shall also provide photographic identification. Failure to do so shall not invalidate the sale, unless the Auctioneer, in its absolute discretion, so decides. 12.6 Any bid which fails to reach the Reserve may be submitted by the Auctioneer to the Seller and if the Seller accepts that bid, the Lot will be deemed to have been sold to the Buyer at the sum bid at the fall of the hammer and the normal Terms and Conditions will apply to that sale. 13.1 Where a Lot is illustrated by a photograph, in the case of a vehicle with a registration number visible, that number will not be transferred with the vehicle to the Buyer unless the registration particulars appear in the written part of the


description and the transfer has been authorised by the Seller. If the vehicle is sold to the Buyer before the formalities of the allocation of a different registration number to that vehicle are completed with the DVLA, the Buyer accepts that he will take all steps necessary to co-operate with either the Seller or the Auctioneer to have the number retransferred to the Seller or as may be, and will take no steps to register the vehicle with the number in his name. 13.2 Whilst the interests of prospective Buyers are best served by personal attendance at the Sale, the Auctioneers will if so instructed execute bids on their behalf. Neither the Auctioneer nor its Employees or Agents will be responsible for any error or default in doing so or in failing altogether to do so. Where the Auctioneer executes bids on behalf of an absent bidder, each Lot will be bought as cheaply as is allowed by other bids and any relevant Reserve. 14. The Buyer shall pay to the Auctioneer in respect of each Lot the Buyer’s Commission calculated on the Hammer Price at the stated rates as set out above. 15. Where a Lot is described in the Catalogue or announced at the time of Sale as being subject to VAT on import, VAT will be payable in addition to the Hammer Price (which VAT may or may not be refundable by HM Customs & Excise on proof of export).

16.3 Pay to the Auctioneer the total amount due, at latest by midday on the day after the Sale, notwithstanding that where the Buyer wishes to export the Lot, an export licence may be required which must be obtained by the Buyer at his own cost; 16.4 Accept that any payments received by the Auctioneer from a Buyer may be applied by the Auctioneer towards any sums owing from that Buyer to the Auctioneer on any account whatsoever, without regard to any directions of the Buyer or his agent, whether express or implied. 17.1 Until the total amount due has been received by the Auctioneer: (a) title in a Lot shall not pass to the Buyer but the risk shall; (b) no Lot may be taken away by or on behalf of the Buyer. 17.2 The Buyer shall be responsible for any removal, storage and insurance charges and any other Expenses on any Lot not paid for and taken away from the by 1pm on the day following the day of the sale. 17.3 If the Lot remains under the vendor’s control for any reason, either at their property or a thirdparty one, then the Buyer must remove it within ten days of the sale. Failure to do so will result in the Lot being uplifted to secure storage at the Buyer’s expense.

16.1 Upon the sale of a Lot, the Buyer shall: 16.2 Unless he has already done so, complete a Bidder’s Registration Form as in Condition 12.5 above;

18.1 If a Buyer fails either to pay for or to take away any Lot, the Auctioneer may without further notice to the Buyer, at its discretion and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies it may have, exercise

one or more of the following rights or remedies, as may be relevant, in relation to any and all remedies for non-payment that the Auctioneer may choose to exercise. The Buyer will pay to the Auctioneer all legal and other costs borne by it on a full indemnity basis. 18.2 To charge interest at a rate not exceeding 3% per month over Natwest Bank’s base rate on so much of the total amount due as remains unpaid after the date and time referred to in condition 16.3 for the first two months. After that period of time to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 1.75% per month over Natwest Bank’s base rate on so much of the total amount due as remains unpaid after the date and time referred to in condition 16.3. 18.3 To issue proceedings against the Buyer for payment of the total amount due and/or for damages for breach of contract. If the Seller decides to sell the Lot elsewhere, the Auctioneer may proceed against the Buyer for the Commission which it would have earned both from the Seller and the Buyer together with VAT on both had the Buyer paid for the Lot in accordance with these Conditions. 18.4 To rescind the sale of that or any other Lots sold to the same Buyer at this or any other Sale, in respect of which title has not passed. 18.5 To resell the Lot or cause it to be resold by public or private sale, such that any deficiency in the total amount due resulting from such resale (after giving credit for any payment) together with the full costs incurred in connection with the Lots shall be paid to the Auctioneer by the Buyer; any surplus in excess of the Sale Proceeds of that resale shall belong to the Seller.

307


18.6 To store the Lot at the sole expense of the Buyer and to release the Lot only after payment in full of the total amount due, together with the accrued cost of the removal, storage and insurance and all other expenses incurred in connection with the Lot. 18.7 To retain that or any other Lot sold to the Buyer at the same or any other auction and to release the same only after payment of the total amount due. 18.8 To apply by way of set-off any Sale Proceeds of any Lot then due or at any time thereafter becoming due to the Buyer towards settlement of the total amount due and expenses and the Auctioneer shall be entitled to a lien on any property of the Buyer which is in the Auctioneer’s possession for any purpose. 18.9 To reject or ignore any bids made by or on behalf of the defaulting Buyer at any future sales or insist upon a cash deposit before accepting any bids in future. 19.1 All Lots are offered as seen with all faults and defects without any guarantee or warranty attaching thereto as to condition, roadworthiness or otherwise and with all faults and defects whether apparent upon examination or not. 19.2 In any event, neither the Seller nor the Auctioneer shall be liable for any indirect or consequential loss whatsoever, and the maximum liability of the Auctioneer together with its Employees and Agents, in the event of any claim against them arising from the sale of any Lot shall be limited to the Hammer Price plus Buyer’s Premium in respect of that Lot.

308
