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

Bridgestone 175 Hurricane; 1968; Metallic Blue & Chrome; really well restored; running and riding beautifully; very quick lightweight

Norton 30 International Clubmans; Polychromatic Grey; 1954 (bolt up featherbed frame); Matching Numbers; Original Registration; original Buff Log Book ( and Green Card Continuation Book) showing it was originally supplied to Reg Deardon who sponsored Dave Chadwick to race the machine; it competed in the 1954 I.O.M. 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; 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.

Vincent Black Prince; 1955; original registration; all original numbers;  excellent provenance; Buff Log Book; known ownership history from new; 3 owners since 1963; very correct and smart example of this exceptionally rare and special machine

Velocette Mk2 KSS; 1947; Original Transferable Registration; restored to a high standard some time ago and only around 500 miles covered since so still really lovely; receipts for Restoration work on file; previously supplied by ourselves            HELD

Triumph T100 Bonneville; 2003; Black & White; 17,000 miles; mechanically excellent; rides extremely well; scruffy cosmetically; ideal daily rider or excellent basis for a special

Bridgestone Classic Motorcycles for Sale

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

BSA DB34 Gold Star Clubman for sale

on the face of it this machine appears to be a very well restored Matching Numbers 1956 DB34 Gold Star that started life as a Tourer and has subsequently been converted to Clubman trim, however it has a B31/B33 crankcase stamped up with the correct DB34 number and very well done it is too; we are also slightly suspicious of the frame number stamping; therefore, we are selling this machine as a Gold Star REPLICA just to be on the safe side; there is a Club Certificate stating the numbers match those of a DB34 sold to Movea Paris as a DB34 Tourer; it is fitted with an RRT2 gearbox, GP Carb, Dunlop alloy rear wheel and a Borrani on the front; it has as you can see a 190 front brake and lots of other nice genuine Gold Star parts; we are advised that the engine was completely rebuilt by Dave Flintoff but there is no paperwork to verify it; it does however start easily and it rides very well with excellent brakes, clutch, gearbox and a working charging system; 450 miles since restoration in 2003; last owner since 2005; transferable SOmerset Registration; this is a seriously nice machine for the money            SOLD
