Münch Mammoth sells for £154,940 at Bonhams spring Stafford sale
Several world bidding records were broken at the International Classic MotorCycle Show at Stafford over the weekend of April 21-22 when a 1970 1177cc Clymer MÜnch TTS Mammoth was sold for a staggering £154,940, and a 1973 MV Agusta 750S went for £96,700 – the highest price ever achieved for one of these machines at auction.
In all, with 92% of the lots sold, the sale achieved a total of £3,376,045.
After an intense six-way bidding battle, a 1931 981cc Brough Superior SS100 went to a bidder in the room for £264,700 – way above its pre-sale estimate of £170,000-£220,000.
Proceeds from that particular sale will benefit three charities – the Search and Rescue Dog Association, the RNLI and the Salvation Army.
James Stensel, head of Bonhams Collectors’ Motorcycles UK, said: “We are incredibly honoured to have been appointed to sell such a special machine.
“The result exceeded all expectations and demonstrates the strength of the Brough Superior market and the length the bidders will go to in support of such worthy causes.”
