Classic Bikes / Motorcycles For Sale that are Arriving into Stock Shortly

Triumph 'Harris' Bonneville; Black & Red; 1987; Matching Numbers; 15,000 miles from new; extremely original including exhaust, Mk1.5 Concentrics etc; certainly not mint as its unrestored but perfectly presentable; chrome in rims is pitted and there are various chips and marks that have mostly been touched in; runs and rides very well; previously supplied by ourselves

Vincent Shadowised Rapide; 1951; engine & UFM numbers correctly 1900 apart but we believe that the stampings are not the original Factory ones; this machine has been completely 'Shadowised' with 5 inch speedo, new correct Carbs, finned brake drums, black engine; 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 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; it will make an excellent 'Riders' Vincent and will be priced accordingly

Harley Davidson 1340 FXDL; 1996; Metallic Red; Matching Numbers; Genuine HD 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; Screamin Eagles; new tyres, had nearly 1,000 spent recently on service, rear belt pulley etc


 Classic Cars For Sale

Jaguar XJ6 2.8 Series 1 Automatic for sale;

1970; rare early chrome instrument bezel car; 75,000 miles from new; original book pack and tools; substantial Documented History file from new; has been resprayed at some point but otherwise unrestored; extremely solid underneath and I have not seen any evidence of any welding; bottoms of the doors are excellent with original paint in the shuts etc; interior belies its age in that the original leather and carpets whilst clearly not new are truly remarkable condition for their age; the car drives beautifully with everything working including both fuel tanks as well as the original time clock!; being mostly original, this car is clearly not concourse but it is an astonishing 'Survivor'; literally just had a major service which included changing gearbox oil and filter as well as rear axle oils etc; these at the time groundbreaking cars are now extremely rare in this condition and very undervalued in the current market in my opinion; they are impressive even today 50 years after their launch; p/x Classic Bikes/ Cars etc                8,995

  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        3,850

Velocette Valiant for sale;

1957; 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 clutch slips and the speedometer is not currenlty working; it does howver charge, the electrics work fine including the charging, the engine is willing and sounds sweet, the gear box works fine etc             3,500

Velocette MAC for sale;

1937; nice little machine that runs well having had a recent top end rebuild; Alton Alternator fitted; cosmetically the photos do flatter the bike slightly in that some of the marks & imperfections do not show in the photos; the paint on the leading edge of the offside tank top has lifted at some point and brushed in as can be seen on the last photo; starts very easily; runs well and is perfectly useable as is but would benefit from some work to make perfect mechanically but this is reflected in the asking price; please call to discuss; previously supplied by ourselves              6,350

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 Venom Mk2 Clubman for sale;

1969; genuine and rare Mk2 Clubman also one of the very last built; genuinely 1 owner from new until last year who is a well known member of the Velocette Owners Club and who was the editor of the 'Fishtail' for many years; the second and last owner is also a prominent member of the VOC and he pruchased the bike directly from the 1st owner; substantial history file including many lovely original and now very rare documents including things like the original 1st Service voucher etc some of which I have never seen before; it was involved in and accident in the 1980's which resulted in the frame being changed for another Venom frame which is all documented including the receipt for the frame and relevant DVLA documentation; still has original engine & gearbox naturally; this is a very well known machine in Velocette circles and has been used extensively throughout its life travelling all over the UK and Europe; had a recent refresh which included quite a lot of work including fully rebuilt forks etc; Criterion Alternator fitted; new speedo fitted but original is with it;  please make no mistake, this machine has always been and is still very much a riders bike, it is not in any way a show machine but is perfectly presentable with the most amazing history and a very sweet sounding engine                SOLD

Velocette E2 for sale;

Velocette MAC for sale;

1954; really high quality restoration some time ago but still in really excellent order throughout; until recently it was unused and part of a well known Velocette collection; now all re-commissioned and working well; starts easily; runs and rides extremely well; not quite Concours any longer but extremely smart; I suspect it would be very difficult to find a better example for sale; previously supplied by ourselves                            SOLD


Vincent Motorcycles For Sale


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

Vincent Comet for sale;

1951; Upper & Rear Frame numbers match with engine correctly 1900 apart and the same numbers appear on the V5c although it is clear that the stampings are not original Factory ones hence the low price (amazingly we have just sold another one with this exact same issue); older restoration by Phil Cotton Motorcycles; been regularly used since therefore no longer mint but very smart and a lovely riding machine; Conway's Clutch fitted; good history file                SOLD
