A BIT ON THE SIDE

Ready to ride clas­sics shine at Ch­effins

Classic Bike (UK) - - AUCTIONS -

The first of the mo­tor­cy­cle lots to go un­der the ham­mer at Ch­ef­fin’s re­cent Cam­bridge vin­tage sale proved to be the top seller. The 1965 BMW R60 and Steib S501 out­fit made a re­spectable £10,200. Pur­chased by the ven­dor in solo trim in 1998, the out­fit has seen reg­u­lar use on VMCC runs and was pre­sented in fine, us­able con­di­tion.

Other high­lights of the com­bined bike, car and au­to­mo­bilia sale in­cluded a US mar­ket 1975 Tri­umph T150V Tri­dent that made a rea­son­able £7500. Re­stored by the ven­dor in 2006, the bike was sold ready to en­joy, with MOT. And, while not a gen­uine 900SS, a 1977 Du­cati 860 MKIII GT, fit­ted with a Darmah SSD en­gine with 900SS spec­i­fi­ca­tion heads, 9.5:1 pis­tons and 40mm car­bu­ret­tors looked good value, sell­ing at £9000.
