Vintage Motorcycles on Charterhouse Auction
A BIG selection of classic and vintage motorcycles are due to be auctioned this month, some up to £ 35,000.
Charterhouse will host the auction at the Haynes International Motor Museum on Thursday, October 14 at 12 noon.
Classic Motorcycle Specialist and Appraiser George Beale said: “There is a great selection of bikes in all shapes, sizes and conditions.
“What everyone appreciates about our auctions is the wide variety of machines on offer and with estimates ranging from £ 100 to £ 35,000 there is certainly something for every collector or bike enthusiast.”
The auction includes projects, riders and exhibition bikes.
Perhaps the most unique motorcycle at the auction is a 1981 Honda CB110 N. It was bought by a young man without his parents’ approval. When he was delivered, his father told him he couldn’t ride it.
As a result, he was taken to a zero mile shed where he remained until recently.
Forty years later and still at zero kilometers, and with its original fiscal disc, this timeless Honda is sold without reservation.
From a deceased estate in Devon, a former barn delivered a collection of Velocette motorcycles and several engines, frames and spare parts. Dating from the 1940s to the 1960s, all are sold without reservation.
Also from a deceased estate is a Vincent Rapide Series C. Affectionately known as Sir Costalot, due to the money the previous owner lavished on him, he is estimated at £ 25-30,000.
Additionally, a 1953 Matchless G45 racing motorcycle and a 1998 Ducati 916 Infostrada Carl Fogarty racing replica both go under the hammer.
