1970 Triumph Trophy TR6C 650cc. International Six Days Trial successes in the late 1940's prompted Triumph to adopt the 'Trophy' name for their off-road-styled twins, at first for the 500cc TR5 and then for the 650cc TR6, introduced for 1956. They were developed over the years becoming the TR6 (UK), TR6R (USA, sports version with low pipes) and the TR6C (USA, competition version with high pipes). The TR6C was aimed at the Californian dessert racing scene and often referred to as the 'Desert Sled'. 1970 is considered a pivotal year for Triumph motorcycle design. It was the last year of what many considered some of the greatest motorcycles ever made. The 1970 TR6C is probably one of the most rider-friendly and versatile Triumphs made in the modern era, as well as the best looking. By now the machine had twin leading shoe brakes, an Amal concentric carburettor, the trade mark BBQ grill over the silencers and was the last year before the oil in the frame. The 1970 model is highly regarded and sought after. This is a rare (possibly unique) example of a US only model bike that never left the UK. The VMCC archives show that it was built on the 8th and 9th of September in 1970 and dispatched on the 17th September to renowned Triumph trials and off-road specialists Comerfords of Surrey. It wasn't registered for the road until the 25th June 1971 so presumably it took a while to sell. MOT's from 1971 onwards show that it was used in Eastbourne in Sussex until 1986 when the mileage was recorded as 25,460. The next MOT was in 1999 in Worthing, the mileage had dropped to 1,220 reflecting the fact the bike was restored and speedo replaced. It has been used sparingly in recent years with the speedo now showing 3,800 miles. This is not a fresh restoration, but the motorcycle is in lovely rideable condition. There is slight cosmetic pitting to the wheel rims, a chip on the oil tank and chip on headlight mounting bracket that has been touched in, but overall the bike looks great. We have fitted a new battery and it's ready to ride. The bike is fitted with electronic ignition and comes with the correct rear sprocket (previous owner changed to alter the gearing), previous and current MOTs, VMCC document and the V5C; currently SORNed. This very bike was featured in Real Classics magazine, article available via this link http://www.realclassic.co.uk/tri03120900.html
Stunning one-off BSA A65 Lightning in Firebird Scrambler trim which has only covered 350 miles since a complete restoration This bike looks fantastic in its metallic red and chrome livery and sounds awesome with the one off high level pipes. Many unique and special touches such as the one-off push fit exhausts, chrome swinging arm and open bell mouth Amal carbs means this bike stands out from the crowd, and is guaranteed to grab attention wherever you go. This BSA.looks and runs beautifully. The Devimead 750 kit is a nice period upgrade which combined with the Amal 932 concentric carbs with open bellmouths gives great performance. Like all the classics we sell, we have spent time on this ironing out all the small issues you invariably get with old bikes and its been fully road tested so it is ready for the new owner to enjoy. The bike will come with 12 months MOT.
This Ariel FH 650 Huntmaster is a lovely genuine bike. A UK bike from new on it's original registration number. Whilst not concourse it is very presentable, paintwork good, mechanically very sound, starts first kick and pulls like a train. All in all a very nice usable British classic bike.
1991 Suzuki GSX-R 750 K Slingshot Only 3 owners from new. Here we have a stunning unmodified GSX-R 750 K The bike is in superb condition and is largely original which makes the bike all the more desirable as an investment. Often these bikes were adapted into streetfighters or modified to the owners specific tastes, but this one retains the factory look which makes it quite rare. If you are looking for a sportsbike of this era and you're a Suzuki fan then this really is a great example, I think you'd struggle to find better. The paintwork is stunning and the bike is all the better for having original exhausts and not being messed about with. A modern classic, reliable enough to ride as often as you want and one that if looked after will only appreciate in value. With 112bhp on tap this bike will keep up with most things on the road even today. The bike comes with the original owners hand book and an original Suzuki service manual.
Here we have a lovely example of the increasingly popular Honda CX500 B model. Enthusiast restored using many NOS parts and spares from David Silver, repainted tank and side panels in the original Honda Pesto Red with genuine Honda decal set. Mechanically the bike is in fine fettle and runs very nicely indeed, the engine and carbs having been rebuilt. We have serviced the bike and fitted a pair of new Avon Roadrider tyres for good measure. It's getting increasingly difficult to find CX500's in nice condition as many are now sought after for customisation into cafe racers etc. Here's an opportunity to pick up a really nice example of this highly usable and reliable classic in standard trim, ready to ride and enjoy this season.
