MORE than 100 classic motorcycles will go under the hammer with one expected to fetch £30,000.

On Wednesday, June 30, a range of motorbikes will be sold by Sherborne-based auction house, Charterhouse.

George Beale, of Charterhouse, said: “The auction already has some fantastic motorcycles consigned dating from the early 20th century through to the early 21st century with bikes which are show ready, daily riders, racers or restoration projects.

“With an assortment of Triumph, Norton, BSA, AJS, Honda, BMW, Kawasaki, Royal Enfield, Ariel, Suzuki, Greeves, Bultaco, Harley Davidson, New Imperial, Sunbeam and Velocette to name but a few manufacturers the auction will be over 100 motorbikes.”

For the person looking for a classic ride there is a vast choice, with a 1974 Ducati 750 Sport standing out. With under 24,000 miles and purchased by the owner in 1978 it is estimated at £28,000-32,000.

Should a restoration project be on your shopping list then there is a 1965 Royal Enfield Continental GT. From current family ownership of a father and daughter over the past 41 years it has not been used for some time and is estimated at a modest £700-1,000.

With track days, sprints and racing becoming ever more popular, there are several bikes going under the hammer coming under this category, from a 1988 Suzuki RGS250 estimated at £1,500 to the 2016 Wadkin-Snaith Brooklands Sprint Special at £18,000.

All these classic and vintage motorcycles, and many more besides, are going under the Charterhouse hammer in this auction being held at The Haynes International Motor Museum at Sparkford, Somerset on June 30.
