Big bucks for a Montgomery

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

At the Moss­green Col­lec­tors’ cars, mo­tor­cy­cles and mem­o­ra­bilia auc­tion held in Mel­bourne on 19th June, a 1929 Montgomery – JAP V-twin re­al­ized $63,250 in­clud­ing buy­ers pre­mium. The old timer was pur­chased by a Mel­bourne col­lec­tor in a dis­man­tled state and un­der­went a nut and bolt restora­tion us­ing all orig­i­nal parts with the ex­cep­tion of the tim­ing cover. The frame, en­gine and forks are match­ing and cor­rect for the year. The big twin made a sur­prise ap­pear­ance at the 2016 All Bri­tish Rally where it cov­ered 500km with­out miss­ing a beat. The pho­to­graph here is by Ron Weste and was taken at the rally.
