Fantastic Line Up of Motorcycles at Bonhams Harrogate Auction

Bonhams are returning to the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate on 16th November 2011 with another exceptional line up at their auction of Collectors' Motorcars and Motorcycles. Highlights include a 1928 Brough Superior SS100 motorcycle which is estimated to sell for £165,000-185,000.

This interesting early SS100 was re-commissioned for road use in the 1990s having previously been used for sprinting and other speed events by racing motorcyclist and Brough Superior Club President, Dick Knight. It would appear that Dick purchased the Brough in the 1970s and it proved to be a capable and exciting machine in speed events.

Other exceptional motorcycles that are expected to attract interest include a 1955 Vincent Series-D Black Shadow (£34,000-38,000), a 1950 Norton 500cc International (£17,000-20,000) and a 1939 Ariel Square Four (£12,000-16,000) as well as a collection of exciting 'barn finds' including a 1956 BSA CB32 Gold Star (£300-500) and c.1956 Triumph 5T (£200-400).

Ben Walker, Head of Motorcycles at Bonhams, comments, "Harrogate always provides an excellent environment in which to offer a collectable motorcycle."

The top lots in the Motor Car section of the sale include a remarkable 1953 Bentley R-Type Special Roadster (£35,000-45,000), which was created by renowned engineer and long standing RREC member the late Alan Archer.

Also to be offered at the Harrogate sale will be assorted lots including, a collection of Touring and Racing bicycles, various glass petrol pump globes, garage equipment, mascots, motoring books and other motoring related memorabilia.
