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’.
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.
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!
