With total bids exceeding £300,000, the Charterhouse auction of classic and vintage motorcycles at the 38th Carole Nash Classic MotorCycle Show at the Royal Bath & West Showground, Shepton Mallet, over the weekend of February 3-4 was another great success.
Although Charterhouse is based in the West Country, almost 90 machines were entered from all over England, including a trio from France.
Just under £28,000 was the winning internet bid from Germany for a beautifully restored 1940 Indian Chief, and other internet bids from America, the Netherlands and Spain resulted in frantic bidding in the packed saleroom.
Bikes for sale ranged from a fabulous selection of barn-stored restoration projects to concours show bikes and daily runners. A 1983 Ducati Darmah 900 sold for over £10,000, but a 1967 T120 Triumph Bonneville wasn’t far behind at over £9900.
A 1939 Velocette GTP and a 1935 Cotton JAP 25J restoration project each brought almost £8000, and a 1930 Triumph CSD went for just over £6200.
Charterhouse is now taking entries for its auction of classic and vintage motorcycles planned for May 2. For further information about this, or to arrange a home visit, contact Matthew Whitney or Nicola Dimmer on 01935 812277 or email bike images for valuation at firstname.lastname@example.org
