Benelli 750 Sei for sale;

1975; Mk1; UK supplied machine; extensive history file; original handbook and manual; extremely original; long term previous owner; starts straight away, electronic ignition although original kit is with it; runs beautifully and rides extremely well; sounds truly awesome and it has a real presence; fantastic and very rare machine; in my opinion much nicer to ride than the Honda CBX1000 although not anywhere near as fast; this is not a Concours example but then its not £20k plus either but it is very smart indeed; it looks as though the mileage of 26,000 is original and correct; it has had an engine rebuild; this is a lovely, honest and very rare machine; has to be a 'Blue Chip' investment and great to enjoy in the meantime            SOLD


Bridgestone Classic Motorcycles for Sale

1968; apparently very original apart from the indicators; extremely well restored some time ago and still really lovely both cosmetically and mechanically; running and riding beautifully; very quick lightweight that is huge fun to ride; properly sorted           £4,350

Bridgestone 350 GTO for sale;

1970; mechanically really excellent but cosmetically showing its age with various chips and marks and some very light pitting on the rims; this machine does however run and ride exceptionally well with no known faults whatsoever; everything apepars to work including the 5th gear warning light (6 speed in total); there are some very useful and probably valuable spared with it including a tank, seat, recond autolube pump, mudguards with stays, recon points plate, pistons etc; it could easily be significantly improved with a bit of time and very little expenditure or a fantastic basis for a Concours restoration, perfectly useable as it is though; these really are very nice machines and the high pipe GTO appears to be quite rare today; currently on French registration but we do have the French Registration Document, NOVA Document and previous UK Registration details so getting it UK registered will be a formality; previously supplied by ourselves                SOLD


BMW Classic Motorcycles For Sale


BMW R50 for sale

1956; Matching Numbers; originally a UK supplied machine still wearing its original registration; obviously a high quality restoration some time ago which has survived very well because it still looks lovely apart from the rear mudguard where the paint finish does not match the quality of the rest of the machine there is however a genuine twin seat with it which if refitted would cover most of the poor paint on the mudguard; the machines starts extremely easily, has a very quiet engine and rides beautifully; these R50's are a very sweet and willing machine; everything works well including the neutral light; there is also a nice folding chrome carrier and the rear footrests with the machine; the mileage at 48k is quite possibly correct because there are a large number of MOT's going back to the 1980's to back it up; a very sweet and honest example                            £8,500

BMW R1100 RS (ex Special Escort Group - Princes of Wales Funeral Escort) for sale

1997; this machine was part of the first batch of R1100RS's supplied to the Metropolitan Police 'Special Escort Group'; the order was rushed through by BMW due to the sad untimely death of the Princess of Wales so that these machines could be used for her final 'Escort'; this particular machine was ridden on the nearside rear of the Hearse for the entire journey from London to Althorp House 20 years ago; we know the rider on the day who has confirmed that this was his machine and we have both video footage and numerous photographs of the day; we also have photos of him sat on it very recently; clearly it was also used for countless other Royal Escort duties whilst in service with the SEG; now in extremely original and still very good condition both cosmetically and mechanically; extensive re-commissioning work was carried out last year to include a major service, tyres etc and very limited use since; total mileage covered is 43,000; it still wears its original registration number 'R118SEG'; the Metropolitan Police kept and still own the funeral lead bike R121SEG which now forms part of their Historic Vehicle Fleet; a rare machine in that the SEG bikes differed in specification from the standard R1100RS's; a rare 'Survivor' yet very useable today'; the last photos show it in service in London and the funeral                 SOLD

Senior Clubmans TT finishing 7th and we have period photos of it being raced there; ownership was later passed on to Dave Chadwick and then to John Pennington; the original racing saddle as in its photos is with the machine; recently undergone a thorough restoration by Bill Graver of West Norfolk Motorcycles who in our opinion is one of, if not the best restorer in the UK; it was also sent to Stu Rogers prior to restoration to overhaul the engine and generally check it out; this is all very well documented; now restored to near Concours condition and in full road trim with lights etc; I know the handlebars are neither appropriate or pretty but they are comfortable and can easily be changed; still fitted with its Daytona first gearbox which makes it good to ride on the road as well; currently fitted with a new Monobloc Carb so that it ticks over etc but the original TT is with it; it ran very well with the TT so could easily be refitted if tickover is not a priority; superb example of an extremely rare machine (being a Clubman) with fantastic provenance; an 'Investors' dream but also faultless to ride which hopefully the new owner will do; previously supplied by ourselves.                £26,250

1939; rare Alloy Head which as I understand it was for 1939 only; starts very easily; runs and rides well with everything (apart from the time clock which is purely decorative) working as it should including the charging and linked brakes; lovely machine both cosmetically and mechanically; recently changed hands for substantially more than the asking price of                 £16,000

Triumph Classic Motorcycles For Sale  

Triumph Tiger 110 for sale;

1959; Matching Numbers; Black & Ivory; this was clearly a very original machine when it was restored to a very high standard some years ago; it has clearly been used extensively since and as a result is showing signs of age and use; there is also some battery acid staining on the offside exhaust; still running and riding extremely well with everything working as it should; very recent new tyres fitted; this a very honest example of these lovely machines that in my opinion are superior to ride and half the price of the Tangerine T120 which are identical apart from the colour and twin carb head                £7,995
