Sprite Moto-Chopper 125cc
Wow! Never even knew of the existence of this one until I scored this brochure. One can only guess that the lads at Sprite had seen the Fantic Chopper and thought, 'we can do that too'. As far as I can work out it's just the motocross model modded with a banana seat, ape hanger bars and an elevated headlight, wild! The motor was the buzz saw-like Sachs 125cc two stroke.
Definitely a machine of its time. I wonder how many, if any, were made and if there is a survivor out there?

BMW R100RS for sale
The time has come to part with an old friend. Not sure it is the right move, I've owned BMW airheads for the last twenty years or so and every time I sell one I just buy another, and this one is a good one...
Anyway, too many bikes, not enough space or money and the urge for a change drive me to offer the old faithful Bimmer for sale after 9 years of adventures.
The price I'm looking for is GBP 4,500, at the same time it is on ebay so we'll see how it goes.
All details are on the fleabay listing except for the emptiness I will feel when it has gone!! There's even a very poor quality walk around video.

Beaulieu Autojumble 2021
|Early thirties four and a half litre Invicta.|
|Ultra rare engine and gearbox unit for a|
1923 Rover 249cc Lightweight model.
|1904 Maudslay racing car 'Big Maude'.|
The motor is ohc and 9.6 litres.
|Big Maude once more.|
|Next to Big Maude was this beast. Alas I forgot to note|
details, sorry... Still worth seeing though.
|Another Invicta, this one was one of the|
few European visitors over from Germany.
|Also from Germany this lovely Delage.|
|1923 Evans Power Cycle. I think this machine was|
offered a couple of months back in the Vintage
Motorcycle Club journal. Not sure if it was still at
the same price or now had a bump on it.
|Veteran era 'Gregory' motor is a mystery.|
The stall holder knows nothing about
the manufacturer and nor can I find
anything. Looks to be around 1913 / 4 though.
|Clutch arrangement on the Gregory.|
|This sweet Beesa was offered at £6500 and I believe|
sold. A very fair price. Motorcycle sales were very
slow this year and this Beesa was one of the few big
machines that changed hands. Mopeds and ultra
lightweights were however changing hands.
|Finally a lovely Humber forecar on the Veteran Car|

Not a great photo but hey, it's an Excelsior Manxman! One of the all time classic British singles.
