Classic Racer - - PADDOCK GOSSIP -

Bon­hams have con­signed the Adrian Reed Col­lec­tion to their sale on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 13 as part of its two-day Au­tumn Stafford Sale. The vast sin­gle-owner col­lec­tion com­prises 40 ma­chines span­ning the turn of the 20th cen­tury through to the 1960s. High­lights of the col­lec­tion in­clude a circa 1930 Hen­der­son Model KJ Stream­line Four (£25,000£35,000), a circa 1919 Hen­der­son 1147cc Model Z Four (£25,000-£30,000) and a 1914 In­dian 7hp Power Plus (£18,000-£22,000). Adrian Reed was born in East York­shire in 1947 and had two great pas­sions in life, his fam­ily and his mo­tor­cy­cles. His love of two-wheeled ma­chines started at an early age and he amassed an im­pres­sive and pres­ti­gious col­lec­tion of bikes, ac­ces­sories and parts. James Stensel, Head of Bon­hams Mo­tor­cy­cle Depart­ment UK, com­mented: “We are de­lighted to be of­fer­ing Adrian’s incredible col­lec­tion at our Au­tumn Stafford Sale. The col­lec­tion com­prises so many im­por­tant Bri­tish and Amer­i­can mar­ques and mod­els. A fas­tid­i­ous en­gi­neer, Adrian had a unique abil­ity to sym­pa­thet­i­cally re­store th­ese ma­chines. The sale of Adrian’s col­lec­tion is a cel­e­bra­tion of mo­tor­cy­cle pro­duc­tion in its finest hour and we look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing that story at Stafford.”
