Watch Video of the BMW R60 / R50 running here

BMW R60 (R50) for sale;

1960; Originally a UK supplied machine but the engine has been changed at some point; interesting registration number (4532 W); high quality restoration some years ago but has been unused in a collection for 11 years; we have had it running and actually ridden it around 4 miles but it will require proper re-commissioning and some minor work to be properly fit for road use; priced accordingly; the engine sounds mechanically nice, the gearbox, clutch & brakes all work fine as does the charging etc;  cosmetically still really lovely but not flawless; previously supplied by ourselves           SOLD


BSA Motorcycles For Sale              

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        12,750

BSA DBD34 Gold Star for saleBSA DBD34 Gold Star for sale

Frame was originally supplied to Moss's of Thirsk, North Yorkshire as a DB32 Scrambler on 25th May 1957; engine to Commerfords in Thames Ditton as a Clubman in October 1958 however, we have some doubts about the originality of the engine number stampings albeit, if they have been re-stamped, it is well done using the correct type of stamps (last photo shows the number so make your own mind up) and we have priced it accordingly, it is however a genuine Gold Star crankcase; the good news is that this is not only a very smart machine cosmetically but it is in excellent order mechanically being really well sorted with upgrades to make it a thoroughly useable machine that should be very easy to live with but still having all of the charm of a cl;assic Gold Star, these upgrades include, Pearson Electric Starter, 12 volt electrics, Indicators, STD Gearbox, Mikuni Carburettor, TLS front brake plate in the Gold Star single sided drum; starts easily on the kick or electric; runs and rides extremely well with a lovely, mechanically quiet engine and it even ticks over                 SOLD

Met Red & Silver; 1965; Matching Numbers; Badged as a 'Diana' on the sidepanels; recently fully restored to a very good but not Concours standard; starts very easily and running well albeit, fundementally untested so will undoubtedly require some fettling when pressed into service                        SOLD

  Watch video of Ducati 600 Monster running here

Ducati 600 Monster for sale;

This 1994 registered Ducati 600cc Monster has covered a mere 7,600 miles from new. It cannot be verified beyond doubt but it is substantiated to a large degree by a DVLA MOT search and just its general condition. It appears to be largely original apart from some LED Lights, Mirrors with indicators inside them and the Fast by Ferracci Carbon Fibre silencers which sound wonderful although not too loud. An original Ducati pair of silencers are with the bike. It runs and rides extremely well as you would expect for such a low mileage machine but it does have various blemishes and a few minor battle scars, again, as you would expect for a 29 year old Ducati. It was serviced (including cam belts) 3 years ago and has covered virtually no mileage since however it may be prudent to do the belts and oil again now; Handbook but only 1 key            SOLD

    Watch video of the Norton Model 7 running here

Norton Model 7 for sale;

Norton Model 50 for sale;

1959; Black; Matching Numbers; original registration; last owner 46 years; pretty much completely unrestored and all original therefore very 'oily rag' condition; hasn't run in the last few years but we are assured that it ran well and we will make time to try to start it in due course or sell as is; would make a fabulous restoration project as it is all there and solid but is probably even nicer just re-commissioned and used as it; not many of these left now especially in this condition as they have all been turned into 'Tritons' and 'Novins' etc            SOLD


Ossa Classic Motorcycles For Sale

1974; no number plates fitted but it is fully road registered (with current V5c) first registered on 18th September 1974; runs very well indeed and in lovely although not mint order throughout            3,995


Rudge Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Rudge 500cc Full Racing Machine for sale:

1934; Road Registered; built by its last owner at great expense for himself to compete on with the intention of creating a 'modern day' Vintage Race Bike; Mervyn Stratford was the guiding hand throughout the process and also carried out much of the work; with the 'Stratford' engine, the nearside crankcase was recast with strengthened webs (we are advised that the original Ulster crankcase half may be available to include but this has, as yet not been confirmed), with crank, with upgraded bearings all balanced and fitted with a Racing piston, ported & gas flowed head complete with oversized valves & new oil pump; exhaust made to Stratford design and complying with 105dBA noise regulations; Gearbox was supplied by Martin Slancar and is a close-ratio type with needle roller bearings; wheels, hub & carb were setup by Stratford. currently set up to run on Methanol; this machine has cost way above the asking price to build and has not as yet been used in 'anger';                15,750

Triumph Classic Motorcycles For Sale  

  Watch video of the Thunderbird running here

Triumph 900 Thunderbird for sale;

1995; Metallic Maroon; just 1 owner from new and has covered a mere 2,800 miles from new. It is in fabulous order throughout having been kept in a very dry, heated and carpeted storage room when not in use. There is a very small indent in the fuel tank and some very light marks including a few scratches on the screen but otherwise it really is exceptional looking more like a bike that is a year or two old, not nearly 30. Rides lovely too. All books, keys and tools are present. Fabulous example of an 'Emerging Classic'.                4,895

Watch video of the Daytona running here

Triumph T100R Daytona for sale;

1973; Matching Numbers; Californian Import; beautifully restored by someone who clearly knows what he is doing because not only is it very lovely cosmetically, we can't fault it mechanically; it rides beautifully and I'm almost brave enough to state that it appears to be oil tight            7,350

  Watch video of the Triumph 5TA running here

Triumph 5TA Speed Twin for sale;

1960; Ruby Red; Matching Numbers; Dunlop Rims; Correct 375 Carburettor; exceptionally quiet (mechanically) engine and a very easy starter; very smart machine that runs and rides very well; older restoration but still presents well with the obvious odd mark here and there; previously supplied by ourselves              4,650

Triumph T140J Jubilee Bonneville for sale;

1977; Matching numbers; genuine 162 miles from new; completely original throughout apart from consumables that were changed for careful & extensive re-commissioning purposes in 2019; before that it apparently lived in the Grampain Motor Museum unused and un-registered for some time; comes with correct original Handbook and Certificate plus receipts for work carried out to commission the machine four years ago; starts and runs just as you would expect; clearly as it is so original it has picked up the odd mark and light corosion but it is really is a lovely example; previously supplied by ourselves             9,850

  Watch video of the Triumph T120R running here

Triumph T120R Bonneville for sale

1961; originally a UK supplied machine despite being export spec; Matching Numbers; original transferable registration; this machine was purchased by the last owner in or around 1965 and subsequently sold a few years later, he was then delighted to be able to buy the bike back 2 years ago but due to his advancing age, realises that he is not going to be able to ride it again which is why it is now very reluctantly for sale again; extremely genuine machine that is very tidy;  starts very easily;  runs and rides very well indeed; quite a lot of recent expenditure to get it to the excellent condition it is now; clearly an dolder high quality restoration                    SOLD

Triumph 1200 Speedmaster Bonneville for sale;

2018; Leather Panniers; Crash Bar; Screen; 2,600 miles; all books and 2 keys present; Serviced 3 times at the Supplying Dealer the last time was in June 2022 at just under 1,900 miles; stunning example throughout; p/x Classic or modern machine welcome       SOLD

Triumph T140J Jubilee Bonneville for sale;

1977; Home Market Spec; this one is unregistered with 3 miles recorded!; 1 owner since new with original Bill of Sale from Alec Bennett Ltd in Southampton in the paperwork with the original V55/3 and Handbook plus Certificate; we find it hard to imagine a better preserved example of a Triumph built in Meriden than this one; clearly not perfect but exceptionally well preserved and a real credit to its owner for looking after it so well; it has been run a couple of times in the past but will need fully re-commissioning if it is to be used. The brakes are stuck in the free position so it rolls freely and the tyres are clearly very old (being the originals) although not perished; we can arrange to get it running if required or we can arrange for it to be re-commissioned to be run or to be ridden as required naturally at extra cost; there really can't be many left as near to brand new as this one; apart from one blister on the timing cover, even the chromed alloy is exceptionally good; with some relatively minor detailing, this machine could easily be brought up to Show Winning standard in Survivor classes; stunning!                 HELD

 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

Watch Video of the Vincent Shadow Rep running here

Vincent Black Shadow / Rapide Replica for sale;

this machine looks just like a genuine Black Shadow and is on the face of it is a Matching Engine & UFM number machine but the stampings are not original Vincent Factory ones; the crankcase is a later Holder one; the RFM is an original Factory stamping from a Rapide; we sold the machine to a regular customer of ours a couple of years ago who was made fully aware of the number issue and who merely had the bike as an 'ornament' so it has been unused for a period of time therefore whilst it runs and rides it does require fettling and general sorting (most notably a gear selection issue) before being pressed fully into service; it is around half the price of a 'proper' Shadow though; the engine was reputedly rebuilt by Bob Dunn but there is no documentary evidence to substantiate it, however it does run very well and sounds good; cosmetically a long way off perfect but smart & perfectly presentable with room for easy improvement; previously supplied by ourselves                    32,500
