Kenilworth scooter ‘basket case’ and mint Vincent Comet at NMM auction

Those readers who receive this issue just before the H&H Classic Motorcycle Auction at the National Motorcycle Museum on Sunday, March 4 might like to know that the online auction catalogue can be found at .

As well as the rare and historic 750cc Honda four described on the website, the range of lots includes machines from entirely opposite ends of the spectrum like those illustrated here.

This gorgeous 1951 Series-C Vincent Comet (above) and Kenilworth scooter project (below) dating from the early 1920s illustrate the diversity of lots at H&H’s Classic Motorcycle Auction at the NMM.


The apparently complete c1919/20 ‘basket-case’ 142cc Kenilworth scooter will be coming up as Lot 60, and Lot 126 is a 1951 Vincent Comet Series-C, with matching numbers, that’s had only three owners from new.

It comes with a V5 and original buff-coloured log book, and has been in the hands of its current owner for the past 15 years. After being road-tested at the factory on December 11, 1950, it was dispatched to King’s of Manchester two days later and registered to its first owner on January 3, 1951.
