An hon­est Manx at Moss­green

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

The up-com­ing auc­tion by Moss­green, to be held in Mel­bourne on 27th Novem­ber, will fea­ture sev­eral very in­ter­est­ing mo­tor­cy­cles, in­clud­ing a Rene Gil­let with an orig­i­nal Ber­nadet side­car, and a longstroke 350cc feath­erbed Manx Nor­ton. In a dis­arm­ingly hon­est ap­praisal, Moss­green mar­ket­ing spe­cial­ist Cather­ine Dav­i­son says, “Ab­so­lutely no-one fa­mous ever rode this Manx and it never won any­thing. It was used at club level and was last rid­den in the 1980s. It has been pre­pared for dry stor­age and is cur­rently set up for dis­play but for around $1,000 it could be made ready for rac­ing at club level. In my view it presents a great op­por­tu­nity to ac­quire a gor­geous Manx Nor­ton for un­der $40,000 and would proudly adorn any­one’s study or man cave…or girl cave!” For more de­tails of the auc­tion see the Moss­green ad in this is­sue.
