Mark Bryan, Motorcycle Specialist for Silverstone Auctions, added:
“I am excited for my first sale at The Silverstone Classic with a great line-up of bikes already confirmed! From classics to competition motorcycles, don’t miss your chance to submit your bike alongside our early entries. This is a great venue in which people can attend in person – the world’s largest classic motor racing event!”.
The first bike to be previewed for the sale is the 1995 Ducati 900SS SP. This is an original example of the very collectable model and is still complete with its original exhaust system. The limited edition 900SS SP has correct numbers and is in good running order. This is the US equivalent of the Superlight model and is very rare in the UK.
Another classic motorcycle crossing the block is the 1998 Harley Davidson XL53 Sportster Custom. This is a lovely, low mileage and matching numbers bike which has been with the same owner since 2003. Presented in very original condition, this bike has been fitted with a Screaming Eagle ‘Stage 1’ exhaust system.
Offered at No Reserve is this 1958 Triumph T20 Tiger Cub. This great little Tiger Club is a matching numbers machine and finished in Silver with a recently restored seat. Complete with old handbooks and some old tax discs, this bike has been stored away for the last few years and would be a great restoration project or run as it is.
This 1974 Kawasaki H2B Mach IV 750 is finished in Black and Candy Purple, and has correct numbers and correct exhaust pipes with original rear shocks included. This example is UK registered from new, the Mach IV has a certain ‘magic’ and remains very much in demand.
