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


BSA Motorcycles For Sale

BSA B40 for sale;

1962; looks to be genuinely unrestored and original; beautifully patinated but certainly not scruffy although the Jones Rims are a little pitted as is some of the chrome on the fuel tank; there are chips and marks around that have been touched up (nasty scratches at the bottom of the front mudguard on the offside) we're pretty certain that it is still in first paint; you can just see the remians of the gold pinstriping on the tank; starts very easily and has a very willing, sweet engine; runs and rides exceptionally well with everything working without fault; ticks over like a clock probably due to the brand new carburettor; it has clealry been very well loved for much of its life to have survived so well; must be very rare in this condition today, very sweet example                        3,250

BSA Rocket 3 for sale;

1971; Matching Numbers; 5 Speed Gearbox Conversion; fully restored to a high standard some years and around 2,000 miles ago and still very smart indeed; looks very correct and sounds fabulous         12,995

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 A10 Gold Flash for sale;

1961; Maroon & Chrome; Transferable Registration; very nicely restored in the not too distant past and still looking really lovely; engine overhauled very recently and sounding extremely sweet; the machine runs and rides really well in that I couldn't fault it with the exception of the squeaky rear brake and it is currently not charging; the frame number on the machine matches the number on the V5c but is not a BSA original stamping hence low price        HELD

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                   SOLD


Gilera Classic 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;            SOLD

Velocette Motorcycles  For Sale

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 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

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             SOLD

Velocette GTP for sale;

1939; extremely pretty and correct looking machine; recently fettled and sorted including having the speedometer refurbished hence the reading of 1 mile; starts easily and runs very well indeed; it has been part of a very well known and respected Velocette Collection for the last 14 years         HELD

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                            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
