Brough Superior at Auction On November 16 Expected to Fetch Nearly $300000
Bonhams, the famed English auction house, are returning to the Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate on November 16th, 2011 with another exceptional line up at their auction of collectors’ motorcycles.
The highlight of the event is clearly a 1928 Brough Superior SS100 motorcycle which is estimated to sell for $260,000-300,000.
This early version of the SS100 was re-commissioned for road use in the 1990s having previously been used for sprinting and other speed events by racing motorcyclist and Brough Superior Club President, Dick Knight. Knight bought the Brough in the 1970s and rode it in racing events.
Other exceptional motorcycles that are expected to attract interest include a 1955 Vincent Series-D Black Shadow ($50,000-55,000), a 1950 Norton 500cc International ($26,000-30,000) and a 1939 Ariel Square Four ($20,000-25,000) as well as a collection of exceptional ‘barn finds’ which includes a 1956 BSA CB32 Gold Star ($500-700) and a 1956 Triumph 5T ($300-600).
“Harrogate always provides an excellent environment in which to offer a collectable motorcycle,” said Ben Walker, Head of Motorcycles at Bonhams. The results and percentage sold are consistently high and it always attracts an international audience.”
Tips for buying your motorcycle insurance, coverage you need:
- Collision to pay for damage caused to your vehicle in an accident with another vehicle or any stationary object.
- Comprehensive to cover such things as fire, hail, wind, vandalism, hitting an animal, etc.
- Towing / Pickup
- Medical payment or personal injury protection to cover the medical bills resulting from an accident.
- Uninsured or underinsured motorist to protect us when the other driver is at-fault and does not have coverage or assets out of which your bills can be paid.
