BMW Motorcycles For Sale

BMW R60 for sale;

1960; Originally a UK supplied machine but the engine has been changed at some point; interesting registration number (4532 W); high quality restoration some years ago but has been unused in a collection for 11 years; we have had it running and actually ridden it around 4 miles but it will require proper re-commissioning and some minor work to be properly fit for road use; priced accordingly; the engine sounds mechanically nice, the gearbox, clutch & brakes all work fine as does the charging etc;  cosmetically still really lovely but not flawless; previously supplied by ourselves            £8,000

BMW R90S for sale;

1974; Matching Numbers; UK Supplied Machine; just about every MOT on file since 1978 confirming the total mileage covered at around 68,000 miles having had a speedo change at 44,000 miles; comprehensively restored some years ago which included gas flowed twin plug heads, new Carbs, lighter flywheel, new later gearbox internals for improved gear-changing, drive shaft with torsion bar shock absorber, Kinematic gear linkage, progressive fork springs, Telefix Fork Brace, rear Koni Shocks, Dream Machine Paint; stainless exhausts, spokes and fastners etc; recently had a new Clutch, upgraded Starter Motor, Electronic Ignition, front discs and pads; clearly not Mint but it does still present very well indeed; Toolkit, Frame Lock, Handbook and brochure with it; runs and rides just as it should; fork gators are a little perished (one has a slight split) and there is a very well repaired seam split on the seat cover although a new seat cover is with it; previously supplied by ourselves                £9,500

 

BSA Motorcycles For Sale              

Watch video of the BSA A65 Firebird running here

BSA A65 Firebird Scrambler for sale;

1969; Matching Numbers; clearly an awful lot of time & money has been spent on a very comprehensive professional restoration of this BSA; a very detailed schedule of work carried out is in the file together with a BSAOC Dating Certificate;  it starts easily with a sweet sounding engine; it has only covered 20 miles since completion so whilst everything appears to function, it will require some detailed fettling as it gets used to make perfect; we are therefore selling the machine as a fully restored untested machine/project and it is priced accordingly which is substantially less than it changed hands for recently; soon to be featured in Real Classics Magazine                £6,850

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 little scruffy in places with mediocre quality paint finish but it runs and rides very nicely; last owner is a long standing customer of ours who has owned the machine for 14 years; nto long after he aquired it, around 13 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; the engine is certainly very sweet and starts easily; the fuel tank had a dent bashed out many years ago (see last picture) that clearly shows ripples in the chrome but is not in our view unslightly although a new chromed tank can be made available in the price, however it will require painting; charging can best be described as erratic                    £4,650

BSA Rocket Gold Star Clubman for sale;

1963; we are as sure as we can be that this is a genuine RGS Frame/Rolling Chassis but not an RGS crankcase number so the engine has been changed; RRT2 gearbox; Dunlop Alloys; 190 Front Brake; Chrome Tank; looks very correct; full SRM engine rebuild in 2001 with receipts and doesn't appear to have covered many miles since; magneto converted to electronic ignition; Mikuni Carb fitted; Belt Primary Drive fitted in a standard (not Gold Star Primary Chaincase); lovely looking machine that sounds wonderful        £12,750

Watch the BSA A65 S running here

BSA A65 Spitfire Mk3 for sale;

1997; 8,750 miles from new; original Bill of Sale, bookpack, spare keys, tools etc present; FSH; Carbon Fibre Termigoni's fitted but the standard silencers are with it; both Paddock Stands and various other bits with it; Datatag; Tracker fitted; 8 services receipts including one in July 2022 which was a main Cambelt Service at a Ducati Main Dealer; this machine has had an extremely gentle life being very well cared for so is exceptionally clean throughout coming to us from a high quality collection; these iconic machines are quite rare to find in this condition today and certainly climbing in value            £11,500

 

Honda Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Watch video of the Honda GB250 running here

Honda GB250 for sale;

1985, Japanese Import; very smart but certainly not Concours cosmetically also not purist correct and excellent mechnanically;  this lovely little lightweight single is an absolute joy to ride and suprisingly quick too; the actual mileage covered is believed to be substatially less than the 57k kilometers indicated because the instruments were changed (the originals showing 35k kilometers are with it but faulty)            £3,250

Honda CB550K for sale

1978; really very well restored very recently; looks to be extremely original spec including exhausts; runs and rides beautifully; the exhausts look to be original so whilst they appear to be sound, the finish doesn't quite match the rest of the bike as can be seen in the last two photos above; must be one of, if not the nicest example available            SOLD

 

Kawasaki Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Watch video of the Kawasaki KH250 running here

Kawasaki KH250 for sale;

1977; UK supplied machine; restored to a truly Concours stanbdard some time ago by a Marque Specialist and still not far off Concours now despite having been in regular use; this is truly a stunning example both cosmetically and mechanically that has been featured in 2x magazine articles; I doubt that there is a better one available anywhere; previously supplied by ourselves                 SOLD

Norton 40 Manx for sale;

Watch video of the Norton Commando running here

Norton 750 Commando Fastback for sale;

1971; Silver; Matching Numbers; fully functioning Alton Electric Starter fitted; original UK Supplied Machine; comprehensively restored by Norman White of Andover Norton some years ago and maintained by him with no expense spared for many years thereafter which is fully documented with Invoices etc; very recently had a full service and new tyres fitted; really a truly superb example throughout; not Concours because it has been in regular use but extremely smart cosmetically and probably one of the most 'sorted' Commando's we have had the pleasure of selling; previously supplied by ourselves very recently but the owner found it a little heavy and has traded it in for a slightly lighter machine                £9,250

Watch Video of Norton Commando Interstate here

Norton 750 Commando Interstate for sale;

1973; Matching Numbers including gearbox; one of the very last 750's made; really nice well sorted example that runs and rides extremely well; Craven Luggage is with it but the keys to the Panniers have been lost by a previous owner (key now found and included in the sale)             £7,995

Norton 40 International (Manx) for sale;

1937; supplied to Bryants of Biggleswade on 28th May 1937 for the Junior TT to full Manx Race specification. Bryants were sponsoring the Wembley Club Team of which Sandy Kellas was a member. He rode the bike to 18th place. The Team came second to the Norton Works Team; there have been a few upgrades since it was new. Manx Spec was quite different to normal Internationals and there is a spec sheet detailing it all in the history file but it included Racing Oil & Petrol Tanks, different forks/brakes and of course a magnesium crankcase. It is the original engine & frame match and is recorded as being Full Manx Spec in the factory records. I gather that very few were made to Manx spec in 1937 and they were only supplied to ‘preferred’ dealers so it is very rare especially in this largely original spec and with documented history; sympathetically restored and had its engine rebuilt (Georges notes are with it) by Cammy Norton Specialist, the sadly now late 'Norton George’ as he was commonly known some years ago but has seen very little use since having been in a couple of collections since. It has not really been used the roads being used mainly for Parades etc; there are copies of period photos of the bike when new on file with Sandy Kellas aboard and it is also pictured in Mick Walkers Book, “The Manx Norton”; previously supplied by ourselves                Sale Agreed

Watch video of the Norton Commando running here

Norton 850 Mk2 Commando Interstate for sale;

1975; Italian frame example therefore the numbers are not the same as each other as is normal with the Italian framed machines but both are from July/August 1974 production period so very likely that they did leave the factory together; UK supplied machine but not registered until May 1975;  Alton Electric Starter fitted and working well; long term last owner who is a good customer of ours; not mint as it has been in regular use but a nice really well running riders machine; runs and rides extremely well with a lovely mechanically quiet engine; rear rim has areas of surface pitting in the chrome                SOLD

 

Royal Enfield Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Royal Enfield Trials Works Replica;

2020;  extra rare Green Frame model; 2 owners; 1,700 miles; pretty much mint condition; 18 tooth sprocket for relaxed cruising, Sump Guard, Booster Plug, LED Panel Lights; RE Touring Comfort Saddle (original is with it), rare model in fantastic condition            £5,595

 Royal Enfield, Big Head Bullet; 1959; original registration; Father and Son owned from new until Hitchcox sold the bike in 2020 to the third owner who is a very long standing customer of ours and whom we have just taken it in from; 58k is claimed to be original mileage as stated in a letter on file from the second owner who is the Son of the original owner; a little scuffy cosmetically having been tidied up here and there but it starts easily, runs and rides really well with everything working including the charging but it appears to have the incorrect Speedo Drive gearbox fitted as the speedometer reads too fast.; rare machine especially with this history; classic 'ride or restore' example              SOLD

 

Rudge Classic Motorcycles For Sale 

Watch video of the Rudge Ulster running here

Rudge Ulster for sale

Watch video of the Triumph TR6SS running here.

Triumph TR6SS for sale;

1962; Matching Numbers; UK Supplied, original registration; original Buff Log Book; this machine originally came ot us from its only owner from new around 16 years ago (pic above of when he collected it from Kings of Oxford brand new). I then immediately sold it to a regular customer who restored it and sold it back to me a year later. I then kept it and rode it extensively for around 13 years covering many thousands of very enjoyable miles on it where it was always utterly reliable. I finally sold it to another regular customer in 2020 who spent close to £5,000 giving it a thorough refresh. They have now decided to part with it again which is why its back. It is unique in that it has the most extensive history file that I have ever had with any machine and is in truly superb order throughout. In its early life it was used in competition both in circuit speed trials and many off road trials. There is a photo album showing it throughout its life. A few of which are pictured above.                    £12,850
