Ariel Classic Motorcycles For Sale

1956; original engine, frame & registration number which is transferable; original Buff Log Book; beautifully original (a fair bit of the paint is probably still original) and therefore is little scruffy around the edges but really lovely for it; starts easily, runs and rides very well with everything working as it should; rare in this condition today                    £3,750

1956; Maroon the shade is a little lighter than original but not as 'pink' as it looks in the photos); original engine, frame & registration; Original Buff Log Book; Club Certificate; restored to a very high standard a few years ago but seen very little use since so still in superb order throughout; runs and rides superbly well with a very sweet and mechanically quite engine; very extensive history file and details of restoration etc; superb machine; previously supplied by ourselves                 SOLD


BMW Classic Motorcycles For Sale

BMW R69S for sale;

1966; Matching Numbers; really lovely condition throughout; there is some provenance to suggest that the recorded mileage of 37,000 is correct but this cannot be verified for sure; it certainly runs and rides beautifully; we were also assured that the machine was largely original and unrestored which we were sceptical about at the time because it is so good, however on closer inspection and bearing in mind we are not BMW experts, we do now think this is possible; it certainly looks as though it has not been fully restored; there are a number of small marks and scratches that have largely been touched in but don't show on the photos; also the odd very small pit mark on the fron rim; many nice period features; the Panniers and Tank Cover as shown in the last picture have been removed but come with the bike and could easily be refitted                            £17,500

BMW R90S for sale;

Manufactured February 1975; Matching Numbers; last owner 10 years; originally supplied in Switzerland, came to the UK where it was UK Registered and its UK Owner took it to France so it is currently on a French registration but naturally getting it UK registered again will be very straight forward; very lovely original machine that runs very well; clearly the screen is not original but works well; Krauser Panniers included                SOLD
