BMW R NineT G/S Urban X 'Paris-Dakar Special' for sale;

2017; 5,000 miles from new; BMW Service History; books & 2 keys; this machine is a rather special one off build to mimic the 1980's R80 GS Paris-Dakar machines by the owner of a BMW Dealership who owned a notable collection of Paris-Dakar machines; it is litttered with special trick parts to make it not only look the part but also to make it perform/handle far better than the basic machines; these parts include:- Andreani forks and rear suspension unit, Unit Garage 'Paris-Dakar' conversion kit costing 5,535 alone; Full carbon trim including head covers and engine cover, Full titanium exhaust with remapping to suit, Belly pan protector, Upgraded foot pegs & levers with carbon back plate, Touratech adjustable steering damper, bespoke 2 piece seat and removeable small luggage/tool box; hand guards retaining heated grips etc etc; The machine is in superb order throughout with no obvious signs of corrosion or damage; runs and rides superbly being remarkably responsive yet still very smooth and torquey at really low revs; Lovely to ride; apparently it cost an absolute fortune to build and looks amazing; quirky yet appropriate cherished registration 'R80 RNT' stays with it                SOLD

BSA B31 for sale;

1953; Plunger Model; older restoration but still in really nice order throughout; very correct looking machine; runs and rides very well indeed with a sweet and willing engine; really nice example            3,650

Watch video of the BSA Super Rocket running here

BSA A10 Super Rocket for sale

1961; This machine is VERY SPECIAL INDEED because it is pretty much entirely original even down to the paintwork. It has covered a mere 20,000 miles from new and has had three owners the last two of which living in Shetland since 1964 which largely explains the low mileage. The most recent owner, an existing customer of ours bought the bike from the Son of the second deceased owner 16 years ago. He stripped the engine purely to check it to find it was in fabulous order thereby merely replacing the rings and big ends for new standard ones as well as cleaning the sludge trap and new oil pump gears all as precautionary measures to ensure reliability. He covered 6,000 miles during his ownership carrying out some other work to keep it reliable including a magneto overhaul. This has to be one of, if not the most original Super Rocket around and is in truly unique, fabulous condition being so very original. It runs absolutely beautifully sounding just as they did when new and it rides absolutely perfectly. It is certainly one of, if the not nicest A10 I have ridden in a very long time and I have ridden lots of them. We have made no attempt to clean it all up for sale as it looks so lovely in its 'working clothes'. A very rare opportunity to find one like this.            6,995

 

 

Douglas Classic Motorcycles for Sale

Douglas Mk5 for sale;

This machine is being sold by a long standing customer/friend of ours and is in Tiverton Devon not here with us in Herefordshire. Please contact Cyril Finch directly on 01884 256457

Cyril purchased the bike from us very recently but has discovered that despite the bike being a really good starter, at 85 years of age with dodgy knees, his kickstarting days are over and would consider a small electric start bike as a trade. Call him if interested.

1953; Black & Silver; Matching Numbers; original registration; full engine rebuild including a complete crankshaft/conrod overhaul by Apha Bearings and rebore with Honda pistons etc just completed; cosmetically an older restoration but still very smart indeed; extensive history file; really nice example throughout; prop stand and new cables also fitted since the photos were taken; previously supplied by ourselves                4,500

Honda Classic Motorcycles For Sale

   Watch video of the Honda CG125 running here

Honda CG125 for sale;

1978; 1 owner from new; original Bill of Sale from Birmingham Motorcycles Ltd showing a purchase price of 380 including 5 for Road Tax; 13,470 miles from new; we purchased it directly from the original owner; unrestored and nearly all original; surprisingly presentable bearing in mind the originality but it has been unused for a great many years; perhaps surprisingly, the fuel tank is like new inside; Starts very easily; runs and rides well but will ideally need properly recommissioning before being pressed fully into active service again or a perfect candidate for restoration to Concours if preferred; recently benefitted from a new exhaust, headlight, rear tyre (could do with a front really), Ignition Coil, complete magneto back plate with coils and points etc.        1,500

   Watch video of the Honda CB750K running here

Honda CB750K for sale

1982.  Has clearly been the subject of a cosmetic makeover some years ago and it still presents very well. The last mature owner who is a very long standing very regular customer of ours sadly suffered a stroke shortly after purchase so it was left idle for some years although he had a local to him bike shop re-commission it before trading it in with its for a smaller lighter machine. It now runs and rides well. The idle is slightly lumpy in the video probably because it was pretty much stone cold when filmed. The offside exhaust has had a patch welded in on the underside which has been well executed as it is barely visible. Great value machine that is now over 40 years old so Historic. There is a hump backed single seat with it too for the more 'sporty' look..         2,350

  Watch video of the Honda CB550F running here

Honda CB550F;

 1976; Flight Blue Metallic; UK supplied machine; clearly had a fair bit of recent expenditure including a 'Dream Machine' paint job costing 732.00 and rebuilt wheels,tyres; switchgear, seat, shocks, lots of chrome items etc; mechanically very nice with an extremely sweet and willing engine; there is certainly scope for further cosmetic improvement in that the black paint has had some touching up and some chrome is original and lightly pitted etc but a really nice genuine machine                3,995

    Watch video of the Honda Valkyrie running here

Honda F6C Valkyrie for sale

2000; 20k miles; exceptionally lovely condition both cosmetically and mechanically; I'm really torn about this bike. I really want to keep it because it is soooo very comfortable and perhaps surprisingly enormous fun to ride but it is also very heavy and it takes up a fair bit of space which is one thing I'm always short of. It is probably a bit too shiny for me too with all of that chrome to keep it in its fabulouys condition                7,500

Watch Video of the Honda CB550K running here

Honda CB550 K for sale;

1978; we have previously sold this machine to a regular customer having originally purchased it from another regular customer who restored it very well. The last owner did use the bike but clearly looked after it very well and spent a fair bit of time polishing too as it looks even nicer now than when we sold it. It benefits from having what appears to be the original exhausts one of which has been very well and discreetly welded on the underside. A really lovely example that is a joy to ride;                6,750

  Watch vide of the Honda GL1000 running here

Honda GL1000 Gold Wing for sale

This 1978 Honda GL1000 Gold Wing is exceptionally original and a very lovely example; it does have some light pitting on some of the chrome work and most noticeably some chrome lifting off the offside rocker cover; clearly as it is unrestored it also has the odd small mark and chip here and there but it is a remarkable survivor being and import from a warmer climate in the US; Once fully warmed it runs and rides very well indeed and really is a joy to ride which I can attest to having ridden it around 200 miles when it performed perfectly with no noticeable faults; it is super smooth and very lively when hurried belying its size; it has its toolkit and handbook in the tank locker; It was subject to a significant amount of re-commissioning work by it previous owner which is probably why it rides so well; 45,000 miles recorded which is likely to be correct but cannot be verified        SOLD

 

Norton Classic Motorcycles For Sale

  Watch video of the Norton Commando running here

Norton 850 Commando Interstate

Matching Engine, Frame & Gearbox Numbers. Original UK supplied machine. It has a very extensive history file with many receipts etc dating back 30 odd years as well as many MOT's going back to 1982 which suggest (although not verified) that the total mileage covered of the machine is around 34,000 having had a speedometer change at just under 24k miles. The machine underwent a full mechanical overhaul by 'Mechanical Developments' in Stafford fairly recently as verified by a detailed but undated Invoice amounting to just under 6,000. The Norton starts easily and has a very sweet engine. It runs and rides just as a good Commando should. It is very smooth and pulls really well. Feels just right with the benefit of the upgraded front brake. Very good cosmetically as well but clearly not Concours as it has been used. Only being sold because the last owner now requires an electric starter and has therefore ordered a brand new Norton Commando                   SOLD

 

Triumph Classic Motorcycles For Sale  

  Watch video of the Triumph T120 Replica running here

Triumph T120 Bonneville Replica for sale;

1960;  stamped as Matching Numbers with engine showing a T120 prefix which matches the V5c but this is a re-stamp; believed to have started life as a Tiger 110;  just been the subject of a 6,200 complete SRM Engine rebuild (detailed invoice present) around 120 miles ago so will still require somefurther running in; 5 speed gearbox cluster; later unit forks & TLS front brake; 9 stud head but with rocker box fins shaved toresemble a pre-unit head; twin Chronometric Clocks; a truly excellent and generally authentic looking machine that is very well known to us having been my own machine at one time when we first owned it around 20 years ago; rides superbly having been discreetly modernised and still in really excellent cosmetic condition; previously supplied by ourselves            7,850

Watch Video of the Triumph TR6SS running here       

Triumph TR6SS for sale;

1962; Candy Red & Silver; Matching Numbers; UK supplied machine; original registration; probably the most extensive history file we have seen; one owner from new until around 2006 when we first purchased the bike, we then sold it to a regular customer who restored it well and sold it back to us a year later; it was then used as my personal bike until around 3 years ago when it was sold to another regular customer who sold it back to us 18 months later due to change in circumstances; we then sold it to another customer who has now decided to part with it hence its return to us and we are delighted to have it back; I have covered thousands of miles on this machine always making sure that it was kept in 'tip top' condition both cosmetically and mechanically; it was always 100% reliable literally never letting me down; the TR6SS is actually pictured in our 'About Us' pages on this website complete with period photos (the first one shows the original owner whilst he was collecting the bike when new) all of which plus a great many more go with the bike in the history file; this still a superb example throughout with just the most amazing history detailed from new; they say that you should never go back which is the only reason it is not staying here again now although it is very tempting so someone, please come and buy it quickly..........;             11,500

    Watch video of the Triumph Speed Triple running here

Triumph 1050 Speed Triple for sale;

2010; 17,000 miles; full service history with 5 stamps in the book 4 of which are Triumph Dealers including the last which was carried out last year and only a few hundred miles ago; last of the round headlight examples therefore with the superior Brembo brakes and in truly exceptional condition; it genuinely looks more like 1,700 and that 17,000 miles; rides perfectly too; changed hands through a Triumph Dealer last year for 5,750 with receipt on file; many service invoices also in the file; looks to be completely stock; books and two keys present;         4,500

   Watch video of the Triumph Jubilee running here

Triumph T140J Jubilee Bonneville for sale;

1977; Matching numbers; genuine 162 miles from new; completely original throughout apart from consumables that were changed for careful & extensive re-commissioning purposes in 2019; before that it apparently lived in the Grampain Motor Museum unused and un-registered for some time; comes with correct original Handbook and Certificate plus receipts for work carried out to commission the machine four years ago; starts and runs just as you would expect; clearly as it is so original it has picked up the odd mark and light corosion but it is really is a lovely example; a very similar example,albeit unregistered with 7 miles covered was sold at H & H Auctions for 16,100 in November 2023 so grab a bargain here;  previously supplied by ourselves             9,350

        Watch view of the Triumph T100P running here

Triumph Tiger 100P for sale;

1972; Matching Numbers; being a 'P' it is either an ex Police or Royal Signals machine still wearing a correct Chronometric Speedometer which is showing 50,000 miles that clould well be correct albeit it is just an assumption and cannot be verified; recent SRM Rebore & Cylinder Head rebuild; rewired and forks rebuilt; clearly a riders machine as it is runs and rides extremely well with a lovely sweet 'honey' of an engine but it is not in mint or Show condition albeit perfectly smart & presentable; most notably, whilst the front rim is clearly a new stainless item, the rear is original and lightly pitted, the paint finish on the sidepanel is poor and there is some crazing in the blue paint on the tank on the right side of the fuel filler cap which probably leaked at some point but doesn't appear to now as it is a new cap; there is also some touching up and chips etc from use; mechanically very nice indeed though;       SOLD

 

Velocette Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Watch video of the Velocette E2 running here

 Velocette Model E2

1922; Clearly an older restoration which was quite obviously a quality job when done and it is still presenting very well as can be seen. It does start easily and it runs nicely albeit all of the hand controls are quite tricky when trying to operate the video camera at the same time!!! It still has its 102 year old original Buff Card Log Book in the file. It is currently fitted with a slightly larger front brake which is still pretty useless but and original wheel with the correct brake is also with it. We sold it a few years ago to a regular customer who is very well known in Velocette circles and who has just parted with it against a Velocette Thruxton we had here.            5,350

 1968; Blue & Silver; previous to last owner from 1973 until 2017; original Green Card Log Book; Bill of Sale from 1973 to the last but one owner in the paperwork; original engine, frame & registration; fundementally unrestored having had some refurbishment over the years; this is the machine that was sold for a World Record Sum of 24,295.00 for an unrestored Thruxton at H & H Auctions in 2017; it has since had significant further expenditure on mechanical items to get it to a very good mechanical order but leaving the unrestored look; rare opportunity to aquire an extremely genuine & correct Velocette Thruxton with 'Bullet Proof' provenance that runs and rides very well at substantially lower price than it changed hands for 5 or so years ago ignoring the further expenditure        18,350
