Barn full of Bikes

The Charterhouse auction of classic motorcycles and cars on Sunday 17th June includes a single owner collection of barn stored motorcycles.

“The collection certainly puts a slant on the term barn fresh!” Commented Matthew Whitney. “The owner has over the past few decades bought, rode and then put in the barn dozens of motorcycles and has decided it is now the time to have a sort out and free up some more space.”

There are nearly 30 motorcycles being sold from this collection which is expected to sell for up to £20,000. Needing restoration they are all under decades of dust and will offer a great opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts to choose a project to keep them busy over the winter months.

Motorcycles in the collection include a Yamaha FS1E £800-1,200, a Honda SS50 £400-600*, a Cotton Cougar trials £800-1,200*, a Greeves Griffin £1,500-1,800*, a Honda 400 Four £1,400-1,600*, a Matchless 250cc £500-700*, and a Triumph Tiger Cub trials special £800-1,200*.

The auction on Sunday 17th June is being held in conjunction with The Footman James Bristol Classic Car Show which attracts huge numbers of enthusiasts, collectors and dealers running on Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th June at The Royal Bath & West Showground, Shepton Mallet.
