BMW Motorcycles For Sale

Watch video of the BMW R100S running here

BMW R100S for sale;

This very lovely matching numbers 1979 BMW R100S has just come in part exchange from a regular customer of ours. It has a substantial history file as well as its Toolkit, Handbook and Panniers still present. The total mileage covered is believed to be around 56,000 as it had a documented speedo refurbishment at 27k miles. Exceptionally clean and tidy. It runs and rides very well with everything seeming to work as it should much improved aftermarket Side Stand fitted; lovely long legged Sports Tourer that represents excellent value for money when copmpared to the equivalent earlier R90S at          6,995

  Watch video of the BMW R100 running here

BMW R100 for sale;

This 'matching numbers' BMW R100 was built in July 1979 but not registered here in the UK until March 1981. It is a decent bike that clearly will not win any beauty contests but it does appear to be mechanically very sound indeed and is more than presentable. It really does ride very nicely. It is fitted with the 'S' nose fairing but the time clock and voltmeter in the fairing do not work. Everything else appears to work as it should including the charging. The red light that flashes on at idle is the charging warning light that many confuse with the oil pressure warning which it is not and it is perfectly normal for these machines for it to flash on at idle. Genuine BMW Panniers are with it. Metal eating 'mouse' has clearly been at the nearside fins as can be seen in the video. Great value big BMW Airhead Boxer at:             Sale Agreed  

BMW F800 GS for sale;

2008; Satin Silver; 23,000 miles with Full Service History all bar one being with the supplying BMW Main Dealer; 1 owner from new until November 2022 and one since; Heated Grips; ABS; Trip Computer, Centre Stand and genuine BMW Top Box; all keys and books present; very nice example throughout; very recent service & MOT; you'll probably struggle to fibnd a better one at this age & price point                SOLD


BSA Motorcycles For Sale              

  Watch video of the BSA A65 Thunderbolt running here

BSA A65 Thunderbolt for sale;

1967; Matching Numbers; starts easily runs and rides very well with a mechanically quiet engine that feels extremely healthy; new rims & stainless spokes; cosmetics are presentable but certainly no show bike; paint on the frame and many of the cycle parts is very good but the tank, Sidepanels and headlight ears not so much; tank has a small dent abvove the offside tank badge and there is a small dent in the front mudguard, chrome on the offside silencer is lightly pitted; definately use it as it is or with some realitvely minor work could be turned into a real stunner        3,850

Watch video of the BSA Gold Star running here

BSA DBD34 Gold Star for sale

This very useable BSA Gold Star DBD34 actually started life as a DB32 in Clubman trim when it was despatched to BG England of Dunstable in September 1960. The engine number refers to a DBD34 also in Clubman trim which was despatched to John Surtees in West Wickham on 8th June 1961, however, whilst the crankcase is a genuine Gold Star item, we suspect that the stamping is not an original factory one. Maybe a dealer exchange? The machine has come to us from an excellent source who is well known to us and who has owned the bike for 14 years as well as knowing it for over 40 years having always been in this configuration during that time. It is currently fitted with a Mk2 Concentric Carb, standard type handlebars and an STD gearbox but the original GP Carb, Clipons and RRT2 gearbox are in a box with the bike. It has a Dunlop Rear Rim and a Record front with a TLS Brake plate in the 190 Hub. It was registered for road use in the UK in 1967 hence the 'E' suffix registration. The bike starts unbelievably easily and runs very well indeed being a quick and easy to ride on the road Gold Star. Clearly a well used and much loved machine that wears its minor marks and scars well and with pride.            12,995

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        Sale Agreed

 2003;  Metallic Blue; rare Anniversary Model; 19,000 miles from new; Handbook & 2 Keys; Harley Davidson Saddlebags complete with genuine loose waterproof liners; SuperTrapp silencers fitted which look stock, sound fantastic but not too loud otherwise pretty much completely stock including the nose fairing with adjustable screen; this is a very lovely example of a rare and desirable model Harley; it runs and rides perfectly, is very smooth and quick;         9,250


Honda Classic Motorcycles For Sale

  Watch video of the Fireblade running here

 Honda CBR900RR Fireblade for sale

This very nice 1998 Honda CBR900RR Fireblade has covered a mere 11,400 from new which is backed by most of its MOT's. The bike has been idle for a few years as the last owner is now in his eighties! It has just been re-commissioned including brake fluid change as well as being fully serviced and MOT'd so is ready to go. It rides very well indeed and is extremely quick. Looks to me to be very original apart from its Akropovic end can. It is not 'Mint' as it is now 25 years old but it is extremely nice and mechanically very sweet. It could easily be brought back to 'Mint' if that's what you wanted for it; Handbook, 2 keys and toolkit present           3,995

Velocette Classic Motorcycles For Sale

  Watch video of the Indian Velocette running here

Indian Velocette Thruxton for sale;

This very rare matching numbers (only around 150 having been built) Indian Velocette Thruxton has just come to us from an existing customer. It is a very rare model but this one is even more unusual in that it was supplied new to Sweden (almost all went to Geoff Dodkin in the UK or the US) where it was used as an exhibit at the Stockholm Motorcycle Show in 1970 before being sold to its new owner. It stayed in Sweden until 2011 when it was purchased and collected by it last owner here in the UK. A very nice machine that starts easily and has a lovely mechanically quiet engine; runs and rides very well; just had new clutch plates fitted so the clutch does drag very slightly until fully bedded in                        20,850

Watch Video of the Velocette Scrambler running here

Velocette MSS Mk1 Scrambler for sale

 Genuine Scrambler with Velocette Motorcycle Company Certificate. Supplied to 'Branch Motorcycles' in Los Angeles in April 1956 (Copy of Invoice in file). It still has its original engine. It was discovered by a customer of ours who is well known in Velocette circles whilst he was on holiday in Florida around 13 years ago. He had it repatriated and set about restoring the bike. Already having another one the same in his collection, he sold it to us around 10 years ago when we then sold it to another regular customer where it was part of a very nice collection of old British machines until now. It was unused during that time but very well stored in a Climate Controlled showroom. It is now up and running again but the tyres whilst looking new are a bit perished and would require changing if it was to be used in anger again; Starts very easily with its BTH Magneto; previously supplied by ourselves            8,350


 Vincent Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Matching Numbers; believed 1971; Clearly a US Import; no paperwork with it but a full receipt will be provided; came to us as part of a collection of machines many of which had the paperwork lost; none had run for some years but the XS-2 started very easily on electric and kick starting and sounds fine; it looks to be exceptionally original and appears to be generally in very good order both cosmetically and mechanically having ridden it around our yard quite happily; clearly it will require some re-commissioning and registering before being pressed fully into service or is a fantastic candidate for a Concours Restoration as it looks to be so original;              Sale Agreed
