By the end of the day I had been outbid on most of the lots I was interested in, the cycles went for a bit more than I wanted to pay at the moment but I did go home with a very charming small selection of veteran Brooks leather motorcycle puncture repair cases and spare tube cases that were all bundled up together in one lot. Quite unusual items, I'll post pictures soon.
There were a few rather tasty vehicles coming up on the third day of the auction, some pictures are below as well as prices realised (or not in some cases...)
|Unrestored ex-police BSA 1932 BSA G12 combination was
rather nice but probably a big old heavy brute to ride. It sold
for a very reasonable £13.5k.
|The Beesa G12 was original paint and event had 'Bath Police'
written on the door of the sidecar.
|This very sweet French Carteret cyclecar was estimated £12-15k
but failed to sell. It was a bad day for car sales.
|1933 Sunbeam Model 8. It was over estimated at £12-14k but
was in very tidy condition. In the end it made a respectable £10k.
|1922 Sunbeam 500cc side valve would make
a very decent flat tanker for regular use and
sold for a reasonable £8.5k.
|1950 Douglas Competition Model went for £5.5k. Geared up
it would make a fun machine for Sunday runs and occasional
green lane excursions.
|Despite its dodgy number the Baby Triumph
was a steal.
|A very immaculate and seemingly ready to race Sprite Scramber
found a new home for £2.1k.
