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

Triumph CSD550; 1929; Black & Blue; high quality older restoration but still very smart indeed; lighting kit fitted; pretty light weight machine that starts easily and runs well

Triumph TR6R Tiger; 1971; Blue & White; Export Spec; Matching Numbers; genuine 3,000 miles from new, never restored and completely stock; still in truly exceptional condition both mechanically and cosmetically; looks and rides like a machine that hasn't been long out of the Meriden Factory; Cover & Feature bike in Classic Bike Guide March 2018 issue; they don't come up like this very often; previously supplied by ourselves

Sunbeam Model 9 Sport; 1936;  the 'Sport' is an extremely rare model; apparently there are only 10 known to survive Globally;  it is thought Sunbeam may have made these to order only due to their scarcity; the Model 9 Sports was only manufactured for 1936; it falls between the 1935 Model 95 and the light-solo sports which followed in 1937; this particular example is believed to be the proto-type for the model and was apparently exhibited at Earls Court in late 1935 although this is not substantiated or verified; starts very easily; runs and rides very well; been in regular use by an enthusiastic Marston Sunbeam Club Member for some years and is therefore no Show Winner but it is still very presentable and looks fantastic; TT Carb fitted which was clearly not original but the machine runs extremely well with it                SOLD

 Honda CB175 K6; Gold; 1973; exceptionally original including genuine exhausts and seat; runs and rides really well but clearly not mint


Cars For Sale

Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG Kompressor; 2005; Silver with mid Grey Leather interior; Fully Automatic or Paddle Shift semi auto; 48,000 miles; this car has clearly been cosseted and is not your usual clapped out SL of this era; it is clearly not Concours but probably one of the best on the market; full Mercedes-Benz Main Dealer and MB Specialist Service History with substantial file full of receipts etc; last serviced at 46,075 miles; super high spec to include Panoramic roof fitted in hard top; Heated and Cooled Memory seats with massage function; Active Ride Air Suspension; Cruise Control, Climate Control; Bose Sound system; Keyless Go plus all of usual refinements for this top of the range MB; Midge performance silencers (originals with it); Sprint Booster; 2 new Pirelli front tyres just fitted and recent MOT; superb extremely low mileage example of this appreciating 'Future Classic' with everything working fine; these cars are truly awesome with mind bending Lamborghini eating performance (fastest automatic production car in its day), Mercedes Benz refinement, comfort & reliability at Ford Focus money; the noise it makes is truly addictive; this has been my own car used only on sunny days only for the last 2 years so I can confirm that it drives as it should and I do know what they should be like because my last Company Car when I had a 'proper job' was a new one of these in 2002, we have three dogs suddenly and therefore it is longer used hence for sale now. Displayed registration number is not included in the sale and I'm guessing the original number of HX54 NKC will be re-instated. May p/x Classics Car or Motorcycles etc W.H.Y.             SOLD
