BMW R NineT G/S Urban X 'Paris-Dakar Special'; 2017; 5,000 miles from new; BMW Service History; books & 2 keys; this machine is a rather special one off build to mimic the 1980's R80 GS Paris-Dakar machines by the owner of a BMW Dealership who owned a notable collection of Paris-Dakar machines; it is litttered with special trick parts to make it not only look the part but also to make it perform/handle far better than the basic machines; these parts include:- Andreani forks and rear suspension unit, Unit Garage 'Paris-Dakar' conversion kit costing 5,535 alone; Full carbon trim including head covers and engine cover, Full titanium exhaust with remapping to suit, Belly pan protector, Upgraded foot pegs & levers with carbon back plate, Touratech adjustable steering damper, bespoke 2 piece seat and removeable small luggage/tool box; hand guards retaining heated grips etc etc; The machine is in superb order throughout with no obvious signs of corrosion or damage; runs and rides superbly being remarkably responsive yet still very smooth and torquey at really low revs; Lovely to ride; apparently it cost an absolute fortune to build and looks amazing; quirky yet appropriate cherished registration 'R80 RNT' stays with it                Sale Agreed

BMW Classic Motorcycles For Sale

  Watch video of the BMW R100RS running here

BMW R100RS for sale;

1981; Matching Numbers; we bought this machine as one of a pair of motorcycles from an owner of only a couple of months but the previous owner to him had the bike since 1988, that's 36 years! Mechanically in really excellent order throughout with a lovely, mechanically quite and willing engine, super smooth gearbox which is unusual for these so has likely been upgraded; everything works well including the time clock; older high quality paint job in what is clearly a non-original colour which whilst the finish is still very good indeed, it has picked up the odd tiny mark etc; much taller screen fitted which works really well but an original type screen is with it; there is no luggage with it; really lovely to ride                    SOLD


BSA Classic Motorcycles For Sale  

  Watch BSA A65 T Running here

BSA A65 Thunderboltfor sale;

1972; Matching Numbers although the frame number is not visible due to the thick coating on the frame; we are prepapred to scrape the coating off to reveal it if required but in many ways would prefer not to as it is in a visible spot and the finish is very nice; this machine first came ot us some years ago from a regular customer having had a fresh SRM Engineering engine rebuild and it is still running very well indeed; we have sold it twice to regular customers since; nicely sorted machine that runs and rides very well; perfectly smart and presentable but no 'Show Winner' in that there is some pitting on the rims and it does have some marks etc from being used; previously supplied by ourselves;             SOLD


Ducati Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Watch video of the Ducati 916SPS here

Ducati 916SPS for sale;

1998; UK supplied machine; 1,900 miles from new; last owner 13 years; has been idle for around 7 years but has just been subject of a full cambelt and fluid service; now runs and rides exceptionally well as would be expected for such a low mileage machine; Termigonis fitted but original pipes are with it as are the paddock stand and cover; Book Pack and two keys as well; the Ducati Performance and also the tank transfers are surface mounted and therefore aftermarket fitment whilst the horizontal 'DUCATI' lettering that is below the upper/lower fairing join is under the clearcoat and therefore almost certainly original; tyres are probably the original and whilst they look fine could probaly do with being changed        Sale Agreed


Harley Davidson Classic Motorcycles For Sale

Watch video of the Harley Davidson' T Sport' running here

Harley Davidson FXDT T-Sport;

 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;         7,995


Honda Classic Motorcycles For Sale

    Watch video of the Honda Valkyrie running here

Honda F6C Valkyrie for sale

2000; 20k miles; exceptionally lovely condition both cosmetically and mechanically; I'm really torn about this bike. I really want to keep it because it is soooo very comfortable and perhaps surprisingly enormous fun to ride but it is also very heavy and it takes up a fair bit of space which is one thing I'm always short of. It is probably a bit too shiny for me too with all of that chrome to keep it in its fabulouys condition                7,500

  Watch video of the Honda CB550F running here

Honda CB550F;

 1976; Flight Blue Metallic; UK supplied machine; clearly had a fair bit of recent expenditure including a 'Dream Machine' paint job costing 732.00 and rebuilt wheels,tyres; switchgear, seat, shocks, lots of chrome items etc; mechanically very nice with an extremely sweet and willing engine; there is certainly scope for further cosmetic improvement in that the black paint has had some touching up and some chrome is original and lightly pitted etc but a really nice genuine machine                4,995

Watch Video of the Honda CB550K running here

Honda CB550 K for sale;

1978; we have previously sold this machine to a regular customer having originally purchased it from another regular customer who restored it very well. The last owner did use the bike but clearly looked after it very well and spent a fair bit of time polishing too as it looks even nicer now than when we sold it. It benefits from having what appears to be the original exhausts one of which has been very well and discreetly welded on the underside. A really lovely example that is a joy to ride; back up for sale due to a complete timewaster who strung us along for two months then backing out of the deal at the 11th hour                6,750

  Watch vide of the Honda GL1000 running here

Honda GL1000 Gold Wing for sale

This 1978 Honda GL1000 Gold Wing is exceptionally original and a very lovely example; it does have some light pitting on some of the chrome work and most noticeably some chrome lifting off the offside rocker cover; clearly as it is unrestored it also has the odd small mark and chip here and there but it is a remarkable survivor being and import from a warmer climate in the US; Once fully warmed it runs and rides very well indeed and really is a joy to ride which I can attest to having ridden it around 200 miles when it performed perfectly with no noticeable faults; it is super smooth and very lively when hurried belying its size; it has its toolkit and handbook in the tank locker; It was subject to a significant amount of re-commissioning work by it previous owner which is probably why it rides so well; 45,000 miles recorded which is likely to be correct but cannot be verified        4,500

  Watch video of the Honda CB500 Four running here

Honda CB500 Four for sale;

1975; Black; UK supplied machine; on the Cover & Feature bike in Real Classics Magazine January 2024; extremely correct and original machine; runs and rides exceptionally well; certainly no Concours Show winner but still a very smart machine; really lovely throughout            SOLD


Suzuki Classic Motorcycles For Sale

  Watch video of the Suzuki 'Kettle' running here

Suzuki GT 750L for sale

1974; Club Dating Certificate confirming that the engine is likely to the original to the machine; very high quality documented restoration some years ago; excellent condition both cosmetically and mechanically with everything working as it should; original rear grab rail is with it             SOLD


Triumph Classic Motorcycles For Sale  

   Watch video of the Triumph T140 running here

Triumph T140V for sale;

Purists, look away now! Here is a rather nice (in our opinion) 1978 Triumph T140V which is fitted with a T140E Cylinder head complete with Mk2 concentric carbs. It has a rather nice period Micron 2 into 1 exhaust system which is actually surprisingly quiet, possibly even more so than the original 'cigar' type silencers. It was owned by the person who traded it in with us since the 1980's but he did sell it to his friend who owned it for a few years before he then bought it back in 2017. He is an aircraft engineer so the bike has been put together properly and as a result it is a pleasure to ride. It was traded in for a Race bike because he has retired from riding motorcycles on the road.            3,750

   Watch video of the Triumph Daytona running here

Triumph T100 Daytona for sale

Matching Numbers, 1972; single carburettor conversion. It has recently had a fair bit of expenditure lavished on it resulting in what appears to be a nice little bike in good mechanical order with a very sweet engine, gearbox etc. The rear brake is below parr and needs looking at but otherwise it runs and rides very nicely. It is perfectly presentable cosmetically and more than useable as it is having had a fair bit of new chrome as well as the tank repainted but you're not going towin any shows with it and there is certainly room for further improvement, possibly most notably the front wheel rim. They are both Dunlops Rims but the rear has faired better than the front                5,500

   Watch video of the Triumph Jubilee running here

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; a very similar example,albeit unregistered with 7 miles covered was sold at H & H Auctions for 16,100 in November 2023 so grab a bargain here;  previously supplied by ourselves             9,350

  Watch Video of the Triumph T140ES running here

Triumph T140ES Bonneville for sale;

1981; Smoke Red/Black metallic; Matching Numbers; fully working electric starter; very nice machine that is in exceptionally good but not Concours condition; runs and rides very well indeed with a very sweet engine; previously supplied by ourselves           SOLD

  Watch video of the Triumph T120R running here

Triumph T120R Bonneville for sale

This very smart matching numbers 1970 Triumph T120R Bonneville has just come in part exchange from a very regular customer. It was restored some years ago by a friend of his who is a very experienced restorer of these machines. The speedometer was merely reading four miles when it arrived but that was as a result of a faulty speedo drive being fitted during the restoration which has now been replaced. We are advised that the bike has actually covered around 300 to 400 miles since rebuild. The paintwork is very nice indeed but it does have some imperfections when inspected closely, especially on the silver painted elements. There are also two chips that have been touched in on the front mudguard on the part facing the engine so barely visible. Otherwise a lovely machine that rides really well and looks to be very correct. It is very good mechanically with a really lovely engine/gearbox.                Sale Agreed

   Watch video of the Triumph Tiger 90 running here

Triumph Tiger 90 for sale;

1937; Chrome & Silver Tank; this machine has the most amazing and well documented history I have seen for some time including no less than 5 old Card Log Books; 1 owner (Victor Steele) from 1946 until 1993; lots of period photos including some with the blackout shield attached to the headlight when the bike was attached to a sidecar presumably during WW2; in 1946 it was involved in an accident resulting in a new frame being purchased from Triumph at which point a new registration number was issued but the original registration has subsequently been re-instated in 1977 which is all well documented; Mr Steele took the bike to Switzerland for a year or so in 1955 -1956; previous to last owner was Ken Middleditch who was a top class Speedway rider who rode for England on numerous occasions riding for the Poole Pirates, this bike apparently being his favoured and most used road bike; the last owner refurbished the bike including a full engine overhaul with new Big End, re-sleeved Barrel, new valves, guides & hardened seats, new oil pump, magneto rebuilt etc; it has also benefitted from new rims with correctly painted centres and the speedo was overhauled; it now presents very well indeed and rides really well with everything working nicely; it is a lively perormer too; a VERY RARE find like this today                SOLD

  Watch video of the Triumph TT600 running here.

Triumph TT600 for sale

This exceptionally lovely 2003 Triumph TT600 has come in to us from a very long standing mature owner who has owned the bike from new; It has covered under 2,400 miles from new and it has been really well stored in a fully climate controlled building as part of a collection of machines. It is completely original and as you can see in fabulous condition making it look more like 2 years rather than 21 years old. It has just been serviced and re-commissioned after a period of inactivity. Book pack & tools are with it naturally. Obviously not the cheapest available but surely the very best example around.         SOLD

  Watch video of the Triumph 6T running here

Triumph 6T Thunderbird for sale;

1957; Gold; Matching Numbers; original registration; came to us from a deceased estate but has been in the same ownership for 31 years; DVLA Vehicle History Search has been carried out so copies of all V5's and copy of old Card Log Book on file; the machine was unused for some years but it has had a major service and thorough overhaul at a cost of 3,300 more recently; starts very easily; runs and rides beautifully; older restoration but still in really excellent order throughout; we do have some concerns about the originality of the engine number stamping so have attached a photos for you to decide                    SOLD


Velocette Classic Motorcycles For Sale

     Watch video of the Velocette MOV running here

Velocette MOV for sale;

1940; fully road registered with a current V5c; this machine was intended to become a Racer and was the subject of a detailed comprehensive restoration clearly with significant expenditure including a full engine/gearbox rebuild (Inc Big End) but the project stalled and it was sold unfinished; it was then completed by the subsequent owner but it was built as a road bike with lights etc; it isn't a purists machine in that it is fitted with the later Dowty front end albeit Velocette parts; The lubrication system has been modeified presumably for racing and it is fitted with an external oil filter in the toolbox; the engine number was removed and it was re-stamped by the engine builder so is not a factory stamping but matches the V5c; it starts increadibly easily and ticks over beautifully; the engine sounds very sweet indeed; we have covered around 30 miles on it and can confirm that it runs and rides very well pulling surprisignly briskly for an eighty odd year old 250; clutch , gearbox & brakes work well; cosmetically very good indeed having benefited from new wheel, exhaust, paint etc but it's clearly not Mint, the paint on the rear mudguard possibly lets it down a bit; whilst it runs and rides very well we are selling it as a machine that will require further work to fully sort it; it is currently not charging although the dynamo looks to have had a very recent rebuild and it does smoke if left idling for any length of time or if reved up regularly whilst stationary, the bore and piston are in very good condition so we suspect that the lubrication system may have been modified for racing purposes sending more oil than normal to the top end allowing for sustained high revs. It does have a drain on the valve spring cups which in our minds supports this theory. Perfectly useable as it is because there was no evidence of any smoke whilst riding along; excellent value bearing in mind the significant expenditure it has clearly benefitted from and the general condition of the machine at            3,850    

    Watch Video of the Velocette Thruxton running here

Velocette Venom Thruxton for sale;

1970; Thruxton Registrar Certificate; detailed ownership records; one of 33 machines that were completed by Velocette Dealers during and after the Hall Green Velocette Factory shut down, this machine was built in 1970 by Tony Headings of Risboro Motorcycles (RF Seymour of Thame supplied the parts) as a Short Circuit 500cc Racer; purchased in 1989 directly from Seymour (who had previously been looking after the bike) as a damaged Racer by its subsequent long term owner who is very well known and respected in Velocette circles remaining in long term storage until 2021 when it was completely restored by that same owner using trusted specialists and a genuine Velocette 'New Old Stock' crankcase sourced from Stevens (the original was damaged) in the 1980's now stamped with the original engines number, Borrani Rims; new self generating BTH Magneto; Thurston Belt Primary Drive & Mikuni Carburettor; Easy on Centre Stand; it is believed that the original owner was David Enthoven (well known Music Entrepeneur whose clients included Robbie Williams, Marc Bolan, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Roxy Music etc); comes with a complete nose fairing as pictured and a GP Carb with manifold etc can be available as required;  this machine has been fettled an used for around 500 miles by the last owner who we sold it to around a year ago; lovely quiet engine; starts really easily with the BTH Magneto and Mikuni carb; runs and rides very well; fairing mounting bracket is also with it but not shown in the photos; previously supplied by ourselves              18,995

Velocette MSS Mk1 Scrambler for sale

 Genuine Scrambler with Velocette Motorcycle Company Certificate. THIS MACHINE IS NOW ROAD REGISTERED WITH A CURRENT V5C; 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
