Bon­hams beau­ties sale

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Ps World -

Bon­hams have got some se­ri­ous me­tal on their books at the mo­ment, with a 40-strong col­lec­tion of rare and ex­otic bikes look­ing for new homes at the firm’s Stafford auc­tion.

The ma­chines, in­clud­ing a ’73 MV Agusta 750S ex­pected to make an eye-wa­ter­ing £70,000£90,000, a 1970 Münch Mam­moth (you’ll need to be pack­ing up to 100 large to take that home), were the re­sult of a life­time of col­lect­ing by the late Mik­los ‘Mike’ Sala­mon. The Sur­rey based former min­ing ty­coon made it his post-re­tire­ment mis­sion to ac­quire all of his dream ma­chines.

The col­lec­tion isn’t all tele­phone-num­bers ex­ot­ica. There’s also a 1979 CBX1000, a ’76 Z900 A4 and a ’77 Benelli 750 Sei look­ing for new own­ers.

Bon­hams were busy on the other side of the globe in Jan­uary, re­hom­ing a 74 miles from new Yamaha OW01 for £24,000 and a never used Us-spec RC30 for – gulp – 64 grand...
