Classic Bikes / Motorcycles For Sale that are Arriving into Stock Shortly             

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,seat, shocks etc; mechanically very nice with an extremely sweet and willing engine; there is certainly scope for further cosmetic improvement but a nice genuine machine

Ducati 916SPS; 1998; Red; UK supplied machine; 1,900 miles from new; last owner 13 years; has been idle for around 7 years but has just been subject of a full cambelt and fluid service; now runs and rides exceptionally well as would be expected for such a low mileage machine; Termigonis fitted but original pipes are with it as are the paddock stand and cover; Book Pack and two keys as well; tyres are probably the original and whilst they look fine could probaly do with being changed

Velocette MOV; 1940; fully road registered with a current V5c; this machine was intended to become a Racer and was the subject of a detailed comprehensive restoration including a full engine/gearbox rebuild but the project stalled and it was sold unfinished; it was then completed by the subsequent owner but it was built as a road bike with lights etc; it isn't a purists machine in that it is fitted with the later Dowty Forks and later front wheel albeit Velocette parts; The lubrication system has been modeified presumably for racing and it is fitted with an external oil filter; the engine number was removed and it was re-stamped by the engine builder so is not a factory stamping; it starts increadibly easily; the engine sounds very sweet indeed; it runs and rides very well pulling surprisignly well for an eighty odd year old 250; cosmetically very good indeed but not Concours

BMW R100RS for sale;

1981; Black; Matching Numbers; extensively overhauled by Difazio's (well respected BMW Specialists in Somerset but sadly now no longer operating) some years ago; this is a well used and well cared for example; it is running and riding very well; whilst no Show Winner it is smart and very presentable cosmetically a machine ot use and be proud of as the last owner who is an avid BMW enthusiast has; panniers, tank cover,  tank bags plus a good selection spares go with the machine            SOLD

 

BSA Motorcycles For Sale              

  Watch BSA A65 T Running here

BSA A65 Thunderboltfor sale;

1972; Matching Numbers although the frame number is not visible due to the thick coating on the frame; we are prepapred to scrape the coating off to reveal it if required but in many ways would prefer not to as it is in a visible spot and the finish is very nice; this machine first came ot us some years ago from a regular customer having had a fresh SRM Engineering engine rebuild and it is still running very well indeed; we have sold it twice to regular customers since; nicely sorted machine that runs and rides very well; perfectly smart and presentable but no 'Show Winner' in that there is some pitting on the rims and it does have some marks etc from being used; previously supplied by ourselves;             3,995

  Watch video of the BSA A10 running here

BSA A10 Gold Flash for sale;

1954; this model with the single sided brakes is my personal favourite of the BSA Twins; original registration; engine was changed for a slightly later but still the same CA10 series unit at some point in its distant past; 'Ride or Restore' machine that is perfectly presentable albeit a bit scruffy in places with mediocre quality paint finish but it runs and rides very nicely; previous to last owner is a long standing customer of ours who had owned the machine for 14 years; not long after he aquired it, around 14 years ago one of the Conrod bolts came loose damaging the crankcase which has been professionally welded both inside and out 13 years ago; the machine has run perfectly since; at the same time the crankshaft was reground and good used pair of replacement conrods fitted; it was also all line reamed to make sure that the timing side bush is a perfect fit; (there is a spare set of crankcases with it but in our opinion, they are really not needed);  the engine is certainly very sweet and starts easily; the fuel tank had a dent bashed out many years ago but you can still see the ripples in the chrome but is not in our view unslightly although a new chromed tank can be made available if required, charging can best be described as erratic; previously supplied by ourselves                    SOLD

Watch video of the BSA RGS Replica running here

BSA Rocket Gold Star Replica for sale;

1955 frame with DA10 engine; authentic looking replica in that it even has had the rearset lugs welded onto the frame but not currently used as it is in Touring Trim; ELECTRIC STARTER FITTED by Steve McFarlane; this machine has had an extraordinary amount of money spent in recent years to bring it up to a really excellent standard mechanically although it is not currently charging; really lovely cosmetically too but it is just starting to show that the cosmetic restoration was a few years ago as ther is some very light pitting on some of the chrome and the odd mark here and there including a scratch on the tank near the fuel filler cap; starts very well on kick & electric starter; Indicator fittings have been beautifully engineered but could easily be removed leaving no holes if preferred which also applies to the switch box; runs and rides increadibly well, it is a really nice example that is very quick too; sunstantial history file detailing the work carried out by very reputable specialists; photos show split for gaiters but they have now been changed; previously supplied by ourselves;            SOLD

 

Ducati Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Ducati 900S Monster for sale;

 2000; Red; 8,500 miles as verified pretty much conclusively on the DVLA MOT History website; last owner who is now well into his eighties since 2003; unused but well stored since 2011 used in a holiday home on the French South Coast prior to that so not seen much if any salt/rain; the only obvious corosion appears to be where the clutch slave cylinder sits on the clutch cover as seen in the last photo; it has just been extensively re-commissioned including fluids changed and full Cambelt service and new fuel pump all costing in excess of 1,000; Termigoni's and lots of Carbon Fibre parts fitted but much of the original kit is with it; really lovely example that runs and rides very well indeed; p/x Classic Motorcycle / car etc            Sale Agreed

Harley Davidson FXDT T-Sport;

 2003;  Metallic Blue; rare Anniversary Model; 19,000 miles from new; Handbook & 2 Keys; Harley Davidson Saddlebags complete with genuine loose waterproof liners; SuperTrapp silencers fitted which look stock, sound fantastic but not too loud otherwise pretty much completely stock including the nose fairing with adjustable screen; this is a very lovely example of a rare and desirable model Harley; it runs and rides perfectly, is very smooth and quick;         9,250

 

Honda Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Watch video of the Honda CB550 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; back up for sale due to a complete timewaster who strung us along for two months then backing out of the deal at the 11th hour                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        4,500

  Watch video of the Honda CB500 Four running here

Honda CB500 Four for sale;

1975; Black; UK supplied machine; on the Cover & Feature bike in Real Classics Magazine January 2024; extremely correct and original machine; runs and rides exceptionally well; certainly no Concours Show winner but still a very smart machine; really lovely throughout            5,995

Watch video of the Honda CB900 running here

Honda CB900 F2 for sale;

1981; Motad 4 into 1 exhaust; not purist correct and certainly no Show Winner but perfectly presentable and it really is in very good order mechanically clearly having been very well maintained; it rides very well being silky smooth and effortlessly quick if asked; came to us from a regular mature long term owner who is a well known member of the VMCC and this machine was used to organise / lead many Club Runs as well as Continental Tours, always reliably so we are informed; his advancing years mean that it is now too heavy so it was reluctantly part exchanged by him for a smaller machine; this is a great riders bike as it is or an excellent candidate for a Concours restoration            SOLD

 

Laverda Classic Motorcycles For Sale

  Watch video of the Laverda 500 running here

Laverda 500 Sport for sale;

built in Spring 1978 at the Breganze Factory in Italy but due to an obvious 'typo' on the Laverda Owners Club Dating Letter, the maqchine has been registered as a 1975; Matching Numbers; recent restoration; very smart looking machine that runs and rides very well; it goes extremely well and is deceptive for a 500; looks like a Baby Jota!            Sale Agreed

Matchless G3 for sale;

1964; Original Green Card Log Book; original engine, frame & registration numbers; very correct looking machine that starts very easily, runs and rides exceptionally well; recent engine and general mechanical overhaul including a new Alpha Big End assembly; sadly the paint finish on tank & mudguards, whilst shiny, is quite poor;  it is however prefectly presentable and is a very lovely late AMC single; I rode it for a few months when we owned it last time and loved it; previously supplied by ourselves                3,750

 

Moto Guzzi Classic Motorcycles For Sale

   Watch video of the Moto Guzzi 850 Running here

Moto Guzzi 850 T3 California for sale

Here is a very nice UK supplied 1980 Moto Guzzi 850 T3 California. It is no 'Trailer Queen' in that it has clearly led a life wearing some battle scars the worst being the offside exhaust (see last pic); not used recently having been a part for private collection for the last 5 years or so all members of which were idle for that time but extremely well kept in a high end car storage facility. Now all re-commissioned and running very well. Perhaps surprisingly, all of the Italian electrics seem to work perfectly. Rear tyre is lightly perished as are one or two of the other rubber parts. Panniers and screen appear to be new. Linked braking system still in operation on this one;                        SOLD

It was unused during that time but very well stored in a Climate Controlled showroom.
