Marvellous Motorcycles

There is a fantastic selection of classic, vintage and race motorcycles in the Charterhouse auction on Thursday 27th August which are estimated to sell for over £8-0,000. The preview and catalogue can be viewed on the charterhouse general motorcycle web site

“We were due to be having the auction in conjunction with the Isle of Man Government at this year’s Classic TT, but sadly like so many events this was cancelled months ago due to Covid-19.” Commented Richard Bromell. “We already had some great bikes lined up and moved these entries to the re-scheduled auction on Thursday 27th August.”

Included in the auction are barn stored basket cases to TT and World Championship winning machines estimated from under £1,000 to £200,000 so there is pretty much something for everyone.

The auction, which is being held online with telephone and absentee bidding, includes a wide range of bikes including Ducati, Norton, Triumph, BSA, Triumph, NSU, BMW, Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, Velocette, Rickman, Maxton, Suzuki, Ariel, Matchless, Triton and Kreidler van Veen amongst others.

Charterhouse are now accepting entries for this auction of classic, race and vintage motorcycles with a selection of automobilia on Thursday 27th August followed by coins, medals, stamps, clocks and collector’s items on 3rd & 4th September and classic and vintage cars on 23rd September.

Also worthwhile making a note in the diary is the Charterhouse auction of the contents of the New Inn at Priddy (BA5 3BB) near Bristol. Here, there are country antiques, pictures, taxidermy, other decorative items and even a set of Banksy limited edition prints on Saturday 29th August.
