15 bikes for sale - selling off my entire collection

(1/2) > >>

Well, the time has come to start selling off my bike collection (15 bikes in total).

Priorities change, and it's time for me to change direction. Don't worry, all good here and nothing in particular has driven this decision. I'm blessed to be in good health, have a growing young family who are thriving and the 'day job' is all good.

I still pan to do the odd restoration here and there, but not at the volume I've undertaken over recent years.

I just know in my heart of hearts it's time to explore a few other opportunities.  To be clear, this isn't a fire sale. I take pride in the quality of my bikes (both the original and the restored ones), and if these don't sell privately, they'll go on eBay with a sensible reserve on a timed auction.

I'm just putting prices on here now to comply with forum rules, and I already have some pre-interest in some of the bikes through existing contacts.

I'll take detailed photographs in the coming days/weeks and firm up pricing & detailed descriptions for each. All bikes are in good running condition/ready to go unless otherwise stated.

Here's the 'list' as it stands:

Good luck with the sales James.

Quite an impressive collection! Good luck with selling them all. Wish I was on the market for another! 🤭

WOW ! so that means with the Kwak 1000 included you are talking well over £160k in total ? Surprised there were no 500/550 four models ? Did you go off them ?

A sad fact is that all of that would only  just  have bought the buy the 'Brighton' p.p. bike when it was auctioned. Which shows how ridiculous the final hammer price was on it. When I bumped into the couple who bought it (in Settle) they told me that immediately after the auction had ended, a Japanese bloke offered them  an extra £10k to them to sell it to him .. which would have bumped it to £171K

Good luck with the sale James. I guess a few of the restored ones will have 'Trigger' engines in them.

Some great bikes James, I'd like to be in position to buy one, but sadly not.

There's going to be some very pleased new owners out there when they go.
