Spicer’s March sale success
Spicer’s first auction of 2022, on March 26, after a year in their new premises, promised to be a good day for vendors and buyers. With an open day on the Saturday before, with all lots on display and food laid on, it was more like a social event with over 200 people attending in the glorious weather.
Regular viewing days on the Thursday and Friday meant everyone had space to view and on sale day extra TV monitors around the premises meant there was no overcrowding.
With multiple lots of spares and 95 bikes it was the largest auction Spicer’s have ever held, and they sold a healthy 85%.
Some highlights were two Sunbeam S7 incomplete projects at £1200 and £1300; lot 551 a 1927 Norton Model 18 at £17,000; lot 565 a 1964 Tricati at £5000; lot 581 a 1977 Harley Davidson XLCR1000 at £12,100 blowing the £5000/7000 estimate away with a broken gearbox; and lot 586, a 1990 Norton F1, at £25,000. All prices plus 15% buyer’s premium.
The next auction will be on July 2, 2022.
