Ariel Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Ariel NH350 for sale;

1954; older high quality restoration that is now showing its age in a couple of places with the odd small chip and mark but still very smart & presentable; very correct looking machine that starts easily, runs and rides extremely well; I've enjoyed a couple of very pleasant rides out on this lovely old machine; front tyre has plenty of tread but is a little perished and the charging is currently not working hence price                3,995

Ariel 500cc Red Hunter for sale;

1936; Chrome & Red Tank; older high quality restoration and still extremely smart despite being used regularly; really lovely machine in every way and quite rare today             SOLD


BSA Motorcycles For Sale

BSA B31 Plunger for sale;

1952; transferable registration; older high quality restoration and still extremely smart but certainly not Mint in that it does have the odd small pit in the chrome and chips in the paint here and there; the chrome is also slightly dull on the exhaust; the speedo works but is a bit eratic although this was improving on my test ride so is probably due to lack of recent use; looks very correct; running and riding extremely well with a lovely mechanically quiet engine etc, even the brakes work!; a really lovely example                3,995


BSA Rocket Gold Star for sale;

1963 with a 1962 Rocket Gold Star engine now fitted; Certificate from GSOC confirming that both engine & frame are from original RGS Clubmans; looks to be very correct but has recently had handlebars and headlamp ears fitted to make it easier to ride on the road; could very easily be converted back to full Clubmans with Clip-ons etc; RRT2 gearbox fitted; Borrani Rims; TLS 190 front brake; recent magneto rebuild, new Carburettor, clutch plates and tyres; very nice machine; previously supplied by ourselves                    15,850

BSA Rocket Gold Star for sale;

1962; original engine & frame number match with Club Certificate; believed to be the 3rd RGS made and supplied to Victor Horsman Ltd, Liverpool on the 18th April 1962; has apparently had an 'interesting' history as it was discovered converted into a Chopper in the cellar of a house in Birmingham in 2003 where it had languished for some time; now fully restored with Invoices for a lot of the work by one of, if not the best Classic British Motorcycle Restorer in the UK (in our opinion) to standard Clubman spec except that it has a standard cluster fitted into the RRT2 case (clearly better for road use) still with a reverse camplate; stunning example throughout; previously supplied by ourselves;              SOLD

BSA A65 Lightning (Firebird Look) for sale;

1971; not matching numbers but both are from 1971; A65L engine but Firebird Scrambler look; last owner 15 years and it has had a small fortune lavished on it to make it as near perfect as the owner was able which included an engine rebuild by SRM with crank balance, rebuilt head etc; Newby Belt Drive & Clutch etc etc, there are bills for just under 10,000.00 on file and apparently, that didn't include all of the expenditure; virtually everything has been either refurbished or replaced with no expense spared; it has covered approximately 3,000 miles since restoration so is no longer mint but a really fabulous machine for the money; runs on Caster based engine oil; I think that the photos do not do it justice in that in my opinion, it looks better in the 'flesh';                SOLD


Gilera Classic Motorcycles For sale

Gilera 50cc Trials Sports Moped for sale

1974; V5c; this machine is pre-the 30mph restriction legislation so will go faster especially with the Touring model smaller rear sprocket  which is probably a good thing on modern roads; older restoration; very correct looking little machine with the working pedal start etc; still very tidy but no longer Concours as it does have the odd little chip an dmark here and there; starts easily; runs and rides very well;             3,250


Harley Davidson Motorcycles For Sale

Harley Davidson 1340 FXDL Low Rider for sale;

1996; Metallic Red; Matching Numbers; Genuine HD Quick Detachable Soft Luggage; 74k miles but running & riding superbly so much so that it looks and feels like a bike with less than half that under its belt; I have ridden this machine for in excess of 200 miles and can confirm that it truly belies its mileage although I'm advised that properly maintained, these EVO Harleys can easily cover in excess of 250,000 miles without a major overhaul and are far superior to the later Twin Cam models; Screamin Eagles fitted; new tyres, had nearly 1,800 spent recently on service, top end overhaul; rear belt pulley etc;             4,500

Harley Davidson FLH1200 Electra Glide for sale;

1977; Matching Numbers; long term ownership by Harley Davidson specialists; S& S Carb, Jim's Lifters & Lifter Blocks, Belt Primary Drive with Diaphram Clutch manufactured by "Primo Belt Drives" Rivera Engineering which is lovely & light; really a very nice & well sorted example        SOLD

Honda CB750 K6 for sale;

1976; Metallic Flame Orange; believed to be a UK supplied machine as it shows as being 1st Registered on the V5c on the 25th Sept 1976; old MOT's dating back to the early 1990's suggest that the mileage covered prior to its 2017 restoration was around 28,000 miles; very high quality restoration and as its covered under 500 dry miles since it is still truly beautiful; the photos really do not do the machine justice especially the lovely metallic orange paintwork which looks flat in the photos; runs and rides extremely well; hard to fault                SOLD

Norton Commando 961SE for sale;

2013; Number 136 of the original 200 Special Edition models built with lots of Carbon Fibre (including wheels) and other 'trick' bits; signed on the tail fairing by Stuart Garner himself and the Norton Race Winning Rider (whose name escapes me just now) on the other side; these original ones have to be a future Classic especially now!; 700 miles and serviced twice (first time at Norton Works) in that time; intermediate silencers fitted that look standard but are slightly louder, originals available; Book Pack, 2 Keys and Invoices; dry use only; truly superb throughout; previously supplied by ourselves            13,995

Norton 850 Mk3 Commando Roadster for sale;

1977; Metal-flake Blue; Matching Numbers; fortune spent on total restoration with receipts for much of the work; made to look rather like an earlier 750 Commando because the owner wanted it to look like the machine he owned back in the day but also wanted an electric leg; 4 Brush Electric starter that works well, superb machine throughout             SOLD

Velocette Motorcycles  For Sale

Velocette Thruxton; 1972; Black; one of the machines built by the Aerco, Jig & Tool Works after the demise of Hall Green and subsequently sent to L Stevens of Goldhawk for Reg Orpin to assess and then sold by L Stevens; the engine, frame & gearbox numbers tie up with the Thruxton Registrar records and the machine has been recorded on the Register since the 1980's; it is a well known machine; it has been completely restored by Tony Mortimer in recent years and has seen little use since; most all original parts were re-used; superb example of one of the well documented post Hall Green Thruxtons; 1000 Series Concentric fitted and Dunlop Alloy Rims; previously supplied by ourselves                            21,995

Velocette Thruxton for sale

1967; very correct with Dunlop Alloys etc but fitted with 1000 series Concentric instead of GP therefore starts easily, runs really well and ticks over too; multiple Show Prize Winner but make no mistake, this machine has been ridden and is sorted not just used as an 'ornament' unlike so many Thruxton's today; superb example throughout, in fact the photos do not really favour the bike, in our opinion  it looks better in the 'flesh' so we'll take some more shortly; standard gear lever is with it; coming from an excellent source who is well known in Velocette circles                23,995

Velocette Valiant for sale;

1957; featured in the January 2020 issue of Real Classics Magazine; older restoration; presentable cosmetic order; has been a part of a prominant Velocette Collection for many years being unused for around 23 years; it is now running well and in a condition where it can be ridden but it will require some further work to make it fully functioning although we believe the work required to be relatively minor such as the speedometer is not currenlty working; it does however charge, the electrics work fine including the charging, the engine is willing and sounds sweet, the gear box works fine etc             3,500


Velocette Venom Thruxton (Seymour Production Racer) for sale;

Fully Road Registered with current V5c albeit not until 1979 when Seymour stopped racing it; one of two machines purchased by Ralph Seymour from Matt Holder, the then new owner of the Velocette Company and then fully prepared for Racing in the 1975 Production TT including Fath Head Conversion, lightened valve gear, rocker return springs, Wader Magneto, 10.6 to 1 Compression (now standard Thruxton compression ratio) and the entire engine was Blueprinted, it would apparently rev to 7,200 rpm at the time; it is recorded that Fred Whalton & Danny Shimmin rode the machine in the 1976 Production TT and achieved the 3rd fastest lap at 93.5 mph not bad at all bearing in mind that the competition featured mainly modern multicylinder machines; featured with a double page picture in Ivan Rhodes book; basically unrestored so has the odd 'battle scar' here abdthere; lots of History/Provenance and period photos; owned by Ray Thurston 'Thruxton Registrar' for 27 years; this is a very rare opportunity to purchase a very special Velocette Thruxton; previously owned/used and supplied by ourselves            27,750

  Click here for Video of Velocette E2 Running

Velocette E2 for sale;

1922; original engine & frame; looks to be completely original and unrestored; starts and runs really well although it hasn't been used on the road for some years but I have ridden it around on the drive, stiull wearing its French '1924' Road Tax bracelet on the handlebar (see last piucture); lovely patina        SOLD


Vincent Motorcycles For Sale

Vincent Shadow / Rapide for sale;

1951; engine & UFM numbers correctly 1900 apart but we believe that the stampings are not the original Factory ones; we believe the crankcases are 1970's Holder manufacture;  this machine has been completely 'Shadowised' with 5 inch speedo, new correct Carbs, finned brake drums, Hills Centre Stand fitted; this machine was apparently restored and assembled some years ago and subsequently left unused but has recently been commissioned including the carbs, Magneto & dynamo rebuild etc; we are advised that whilst it runs and rides perfectly well, it will almost certainly require some fettling to be fully sorted; we are also advised that the engine was rebuilt by Bob Dunn although there is evidence of this in the paperwork, it does however sound good and pulls well; certainly no Show winner but perfectly presentable and correct looking in fact this machine will give you the 'Black Shadow' esperience at a fraction of the cost; it will make an excellent 'Riders' Vincent and is priced accordingly at                 36,000

Vincent Rapide Series C for sale;

1952; both Frame Numbers match, engine number 1900 apart as it should be; original transferable registration; original Buff Log Book; very genuine, original and correct looking machine with Club Cwertificate; well used looking cosmetically and lovely for it; starts easily as it has recently had a rebuilt magneto fitted; rare to find one in this condition today; we have made a concious decision not to clean this machine because we think it looks great as it is and have been overwhelmingly advised not to clean it, however, we are very happy to clean it all up because we think it will look very shiny and pretty and we will probably do soanyway if no-one takes a 'shine' to it as it is; there is a dent in the tank which is shown in the final picture            48,750  

Vincent Rapide Series C for sale;

1950; engine and frame numbers correctly 1900 apart; original transferable registration number; last owner 54 years!; original Buff Log Book; literally just had an exceptionally high quality full professional restoration by who we consider to be one of, if not the best Classic Motorcycle Restorer in the UK which is all fully documented in detail; Mk1 Concentric Carbs fitted but the original pre-Monoblocs have been overhauled and are with the machine; superb machine in every way; they don't come up like this very often; I should point out that the drip marks under the machine in the photos are nothing to do with this Vincent!                SOLD
