470A 1967 Royal Enfield Continental GT, registration number PEU 296F, frame number 72475, engine number GT17832, red. The Royal Enfield Continental GT is arguably one of the prettiest production motorcycles of its day. A true production café racer which was based on the commuter everyday Crusader. With the ever expanding threat on sales from the Japanese manufactures, Enfield embarked on an ambitious performance test to highlight the 250cc superiority. In the winter of '64 they took a standard GT and ran it non stop from John o'Groats to Lands End via Silverstone race circuit where John 'Moon Eyes' Cooper thrashed it around the track at an average 70.29mph, with the whole end to end marathon taking 22 hours 20 minutes. Quite an achievement! This Continental GT has formed part of a private collection. Having seen little use of late being on display most of the time in the current ownership, this well presented GT would probably benefit from a shakedown and general check over before taking to the road. It will be offered for sale with a history file containing receipts, previous MOTs and instruction book. V5C, no MOT, tax exempt See illustration
481700EXTRA LOT: A 1966 Suzuki T20 Super Six, frame number 21663, engine number 21515, orange. The Super Six received rave reviews when launched in 1965. They had precise handling, good brakes, a 29 bhp two stroke engine, six speed gearbox (a first for a production bike) and a 90mph plus top speed. Many were subsequently converted for racing bikes so original unmodified examples are now how hard to come by. We are advised that this original T20 is at present a non-runner, but it is felt that some recommissioning and servicing should have it up and running or alternatively it would make a great basis for a full restoration. The Suzuki is offered for auction with a VMCC dating certificate and some useful spares, including a centre stand. The new owner will need to register the motorcycle with DVLA. No MOT, tax exempt See illustration

522650A 1969 Triumph TR25W Trophy, registration number MDM 195G, frame number E010903B255, engine number G012405TR25W, red. Introduced in 1968 the TR25W was an unashamed exercise in badge engineering with the Triumph basically being a BSA B25 Starfire in a new set of clothes. Both bikes followed the fashion for the scrambler look but were not serious off roaders. This previously restored example has formed part of a private collection seeing little use since acquisition, so should only require light re-commissioning before returning to the road. The Triumph will be offered for sale with previous MOTs and receipts. V5C, MOT and tax exempt See illustration
530A 1976 Honda CB400/Four, registration number PGJ 78P, frame number CB400F-1053091, engine number 1056226, red. Honda's 400/Four offered a ground breaking package during the 1970s. With 500cc performance in a 250cc size frame, they handled well and had style aplenty with the innovative four cylinder engine, rear set foot rests and cool four into one exhaust, they would become many a school boys coveted dream machine. This 400/Four comes direct from a private collection and has been restored to a good standard. It has recently passed an MOT without any advisories. V5C, MOT to April 2019 See illustration

All of this development work has resulted in a machine which is approximately two thirds the weight of a standard bike, which handles well with excellent power and stopping ability. This beautifully constructed Norton has featured on the front cover of Classic Bike Guide (August 2008) where Jim Reynolds test rode the Norton and wrote an eight page feature article praising the workmanship, overall handling and finish of the bike.

Introduced in 1993 the M900 and its smaller sibling, the M600 are generally regarded as the saviour of the Ducati name, single handedly helping the great motorcycle manufacturer through a sticky financial patch during the 1990s which nearly saw the company go bust. With less than 4000km from new,this original M900 (still sits on its original tyres) has been on display most of its life in private collections including celebrity ownership (Clive Wilson from Racey).

BSA's B44 Victor was the successor to the legendary Gold Star and as such had some big shoes to fill. The majority of production found their way to America where they found success as both a street scrambler and more energetic competition use in scrambles and enduros. This matching numbers example is one of these machines, originally being exported to Florida. Presented in remarkably original condition it still sports the original seat covering which normally deteriorates and is replaced. Our vendor purchased the BSA from a friend in 2004 and imported it shortly afterwards. Since acquiring the BSA he used the motorcycle frequently but in recent times the BSA has lived a more sedate life as other projects have occupied his time. This very original B44 Victor will be offered for sale with accompanying history file including a BSA dating certificate, American purchase receipt, receipts and sundry paperwork.
