We asked a mate in the trade what he’d look for as fu­ture col­lecta­bles. Here’s what he came up with…

Sean Mills owns ex­treme tun­ing out­fit Big CC Rac­ing (www.bigc­crac­ing.com), and he’s a big fan of the B-King. But he also fin­gers some left­field op­tions: “Up-com­ing clas­sics? For me, you’re look­ing at the usual sus­pects – the likes of Suzuki GSX-R1100 slab­sides, early Honda FireBlades and Yamaha R1s. I also like the Kawasaki GPZ1000RX and GPZ900R, and Ducati 916 and 748s. Go­ing fur­ther back, I’d look at the Nor­ton ro­taries, Honda VF1000R and VF1000F, and Yamaha XS1100.

“And the most valu­able bike in 20 years’ time? Four-cylin­der Tri­umphs, like the Day­tona 1200. You heard it here first!”
