Grass roots clas­sics dom­i­nate Sled­mere sum­mer sale

Classic Bike (UK) - - AUCTIONS -

Projects and more af­ford­able clas­sics were the or­der of the day at Dee, Atkin­son and Har­ri­son’s Sum­mer sale at Sled­mere House. While the sale’s top seller was a 1959 BSA DBD34 Gold Star, in ex­cel­lent me­chan­i­cal and cos­metic or­der, that made a com­pet­i­tive £16,500 and a very orig­i­nal 1985 Yamaha RD500LC fetched £14,500, more mod­estly priced ma­chin­ery dom­i­nated.

A 1969 Tri­umph TR6C Tro­phy, in US ex­port trim and first reg­is­tered in the UK in 1973 (above), was one of the high­lights. Spar­ingly rid­den since it had an en­gine re­build in the late ’70s and in lovely con­di­tion, it made £4400 against its es­ti­mate of £5000-6000.

If you were af­ter a project, the DAH sale de­liv­ered, too. A largely com­plete and orig­i­nal 1952 tele/ plunger BSA B31 sold slightly over top es­ti­mate of £1500, for £1900 and a 1976 BMW R75/5 project – be­lieved to be ex-po­lice and with a spare en­gine – made £700.
