 Douglas Motorcycles For Sale

Douglas Mk4 for sale;

1950; Silver & Blue; Matching Numbers; original registration; Buff Log Book; recent engine & gearbox rebuild; the engine is very sweet; gearbox works very well; it actually rides very well but the clutch judders very slightly on takeoff although it works fine; brakes have slight judder but this may simply be down to the machine not being unused and therefore some rust on the inside of the drums; kick start ratchet is a little weak but is fine if used gently although could do with replacing/repairing; the paintwork is not very good with lots of imperfections all over the place as can be seen on the last two photos, it looks fine from a few feet away but does not bare close inspection; on the positive side, it looks to be a very original machine that is now fundementally extremely sound having had the mechanicals thoroughly rebuilt by an enthusiast with the assistance of a Douglas Club specialist; many sensible upgrades have been carried out which is all documented in the paperwork file; the obvious deviation from standard is the carburettors but the originals are with albeit a little worn; the sprung saddles and displaced parts also go with the machine as can be seen in the box in the photos;                  3,995

Douglas X90 for sale;

1950; this is an exceptionally rare machine that was effectively the predecessor to the Plus 90; It is believed that they were made to achieve ACU recognition as a production model on sale to the public for racing purposes. These machines would pre-date the Mark series Plus 90 models.This example was rebuilt over a period of 32 years to a very good standard, paintwork has recently been refreshed by a Douglas specialist and the magneto rebuilt; it has seen only limited use since and looks fabulous; starts very easily and runs really well; it is road registered and is currently effectively in race trim (albeit perfectly useable on the road as it is); the full lighting kit (including Magdyno), road mudguards and Burgess road exhausts were restored at the same time and are carefully packed to go with the machine so could very easily be fitted straight on; I have never seen one of these machines for sale before and have no idea when we will see another on the market              SOLD

 

Harley Davidson Motorcycles For Sale

Harley Davidson 1340cc Road King for sale

1995; 2 owners and 17,000 miles from new with most MOT's to verify; fully loaded; been fully serviced by Warr's Harley Davidson in Feb 2017 at a cost of 1,036;  runs and rides without fault and is actually very pleasant to ride being supremely comfortable and actually quite nimble when on the move;  it has picked up the odd mark and chip over the years the worst being a dink in the front mudhguard as shown in the last photo; Stage 1 tune with loud exhaust but not effencively loud;  a lot of bike for money at                 6,750

 

Honda Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Honda GL1000 K0 Gold Wing for sale

1975; really lovely example that runs and rides beautifully; I have ridden this machine around a fair bit and am very surprised how lovely it is not usually being a fan of the 'Gold Wing', in fact, I enjoyed it so much that I had intended to keep it but then reality kicked in which is why it is now listed here for sale; in my opinion these machine are seriously undervalued at the moment when compared to its contemporaries of the period;  this one is priced extremely cheaply for its condition because whilst the number on the frame itself matches the V5c & MOT, it does not appear to be a number that originated from Honda??; we have however located a very good condition frame which is only 104 away from the engine number on the machine (Honda numbers never matched exactly anyway) complete with stamped Chassis plate that has a US Title and NOVA Certificate which goes with the bike should someone feel inclined to swap everything over;                     SOLD

 

Matchless Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Matchless G12 CSR for sale;

1963; extensive works carried out in recent years with Invoices Showing Rebore/Piston, Forks, Gearbox, Magneto etc having received attention; still wearing Dunlop Rims; anti wetsump valve fitted; tank transfers clearly not correct but actually much nicer than original badges in my opinion; very pretty machine that runs and rides very well; fanbtastic value when compared to the equivalent Triumph of that era                   SOLD

 

Moto Guzzi Classic Motorcycles For Sale

 

Moto Guzzi T3 California (project) for sale;

1980; very original UK supplied machine that starts easily, runs and rides well; the recorded mileage of under 17,000 is almost certainly correct, we have most MOT's going back to 1991 showing 4,000 and gradually increasing thereafter; it is a bit scruffy but very original; the switch gear is the original 'Lego' type but everything seems to be working well; the screen has a crack in it;  this machine has a couple of faults that will require attention at some point:-  1) the engine rear main seal appears to be leaking slightly which causes the clutch to slip a little once it is warmed up thoroughly and 2) the fuel tank probably has a pin hole leak in that there is a blister in the paint by the offside tank badge, there is no evidence of any fuel leaking but it will probably require lining inside; it does have a mopre modern luggage system with it but the original style panniers are also present, these will require repainting though; if the machine does not sell as it is by the time the workshop has some space, we will repair the clutch and tank but this will naturally increase the asking price            SOLD

 

Norton Motorcycles For Sale

1937; frame number suggests a Model 50 but the frame appears to be a CJ; engine fitted is an ES2; V5c shows it as being first registeredf 17th November 1937; clearly an older restoration/build but still a lovely looking machine that runs and rides very well                    SOLD

 

Royal Enfield Motorcycles For Sale

2006; Metallic Dark Blue; 8,000 miles; original paperwork including Bill of Sale from supplying dealer plus another from a subsequent sale with it; Toolkit; two keys; Gold Star style exhaust fitted but original is with it; starts easily on the kick starter despite the fact that the de-compressor appears to have been removed and naturally it has electric start as well; runs and rides very well and feels very lively if a little noisy with the exhaust currently fitted; extremely tidy but it does have the odd little mark here and there and there is some light pitting on the exhaust pipe currently fitted               SOLD

 

Rudge Motorcycles For Sale

   

Rudge 500cc TT Replica for sale;
