An Auction Of Classic Motorcycles & Vintage Scooters.

Wednesday December 7th At The National Motorcycle Museum.

29/11/2022     General News

We are delighted to present our final auction of the year. To be held at the National Motorcycle Museum from 10am with viewing available from 9am.
 
Our last physical two-wheeler sale of 2022 boasts almost 300 lots. The scooter section contains some special machines with links to Chelsea FC, Simon Cowell and the McLaren F1 team. It also encompasses some great entries from the collection of ex-racer, author and general scooter luminary, Mike Webster.

The motorcycle section comprises everything from a c.1910 Wall Auto Wheel through to a 2019 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled that was used in the most recent James Bond film ‘No Time to Die’.

2019 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled - Estimate £7,000 - £10,000

Though, many will doubtless be drawn to the ex-George Brough Omega wristwatch which was gifted to the vendor’s father who served as manager of Brough Superior Motors.

Resident in Australia for much of its life, the sympathetically restored 1915 James Model 6 4¼hp Combination would make a wonderful Banbury Run entrant as would the 1920 OK Junior Humphries & Dawes (reputedly the sole running example extant) or the somewhat faster 1929 Rex Acme TT Replica.

1929 Rex Acme TT Replica - Estimate £23,000 - £26,000

As well as sports models, the auction has more than its fair share of homologation specials and race machinery with the ex-Mauro Lucchiari 1993 Ducati 888 Corse arguably being the crown jewel. Ridden to tenth overall in that year’s World Superbike Championship, the 888 finished second in the San Marino round and comes with paperwork from Ducati confirming its provenance.

No less appealing is another Italian rarity, a 1973 MV Agusta 750S, which spent years on display at the Midlands Motor Museum and is thus believed to have covered just 2,222 miles from new. Although, those looking for ‘zero miles’ bikes can have their pick of various new old stock 1990s Suzukis some of which are still in their original shipping crates!

The sheer diversity of lots on offer is a testament to the knowledge that our specialists Mike Davis, Ian Cunningham and Paul Diamond possess between them. They are extremely passionate about all things ‘two-wheeled’ and would be happy to discuss any of the lots on offer with you.
