Modified classics add a twist to H&H’s next motorcycle sale


  • Handmade specials and café racers head to auction
  • Creations from Patrick Godet and Dave Degans among those on offer
  • H&H auction to take place on 3rd July at National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull

An appealing line-up of restomod motorcyles will add further interest and variety to H&H Classics next motorcycle sale, which takes place on 3 July at the National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull.

 A multiple prize-winning 1966 Norvin 1000, named ‘The Devil’s Ride’, is estimated between £27,000-30,000. Owned by the vendor since 1979, during which time it has been an ongoing project, it’s now considered to be in its ultimate specification with re-worked engine and featuring Suzuki suspension and brakes. The bike also features numerous bespoke handmade fittings including the underbraced swinging arm, and the stainless steel rear brake, gear change and footrest hangers. The classic Norvin look is completed by a small nose cone fairing, a Dow short circuit alloy fuel tank, a bespoke seat unit combining the oil tank with a recessed filler, one off exhaust, gold anodised bespoke hubs and wheel centres.

 Another eye-catching machine on offer, and one of several café racers available at the sale is a 1968 Godet 1330GT. Built by Patrick Godet and the current owner to his specifications, the bike has covered just 380 miles from new due to the vendor’s busy work commitments. Beautifully prepared and coming from a small private collection, the Godet will be offered with an estimated price of £48,000-52,000.


Offering something more super-sized is an extremely rare c.1999 Ultra S&S Groundpounder. Using a hand-built frame mated with an 1850cc S&S V-twin engine, it boasts fantastic attention to detail, with an airbrushed paint scheme and many bespoke items throughout the bike. Having covered just under 9,000 miles from new, the bike is estimated between £7,330-£9,300.

 “For many, classic bike ownership isn’t just about performance, it’s also about looks and standing out from the crowd,” comments Ian Cunningham, motorcycle specialist, H&H Classics. “Many of the bikes for sale at our next auction offer this, but in particular, these three magnificent examples will surely attract many admiring looks for their new owners.”

 Among a trio of Tritons on offer is a 1962 Dresda Triton 750 built by Triton specialist Dave Degans. Based around a 1962 slimline Featherbed frame, it runs a modified-to-race-spec 1953 6T engine. From a private collection, it comes with bills and receipts adding up to more than £8,500 and is estimated at just £8,500-9,500.

 Another Triton on offer is a 1960 Triton 650, featuring a Featherbed frame and T120 Bonneville engine, that’s estimated at £8,500-9,500.

 Meanwhile, for those seeking something from further afield, a 1973 Honda CB750 café racer, estimated between £2,000-3,000, could be the answer. It was built in the USA and imported in 2018. The bike is UK-registered but requires some re-commissioning before returning to the road.
