BEST OF BRI­TISH

One-owner Bri­tish col­lec­tion set to star at Wy­mond­ham

Classic Bike (UK) - - AUCTIONS -

Fol­low­ing on from their July clas­sic sale, in which they of­fered 19 mo­tor­cy­cle lots, East Anglia Mo­tor Auc­tions (EAMA) have an­nounced they will be auc­tion­ing a one-owner col­lec­tion of 22 bikes at their next Clas­sic and Retro sale in Oc­to­ber. The bikes are be­ing con­signed by the fam­ily of the Nor­wich-based late owner, who built up the col­lec­tion over a num­ber of years. Since his death nine years ago, the ma­chines have been in stor­age at his home and all will re­quire some de­gree of work, from recom­mis­sion­ing to com­plete restora­tion.

The col­lec­tion in­cludes five Vin­cents – a Comet, three Rapi­des and a Black Shadow – plus five BSA Rocket 3s, two BSA Rocket Gold Stars, a brace of BSA Catalina Gold Stars and a Ve­lo­cette Venom, among oth­ers. The sale high­light looks like it will be the 1953 Vin­cent Black Shadow be­low, fit­ted with an ear­lier 1951 engine, which is es­ti­mated to make £30,000-35,000.
