Anglia Car Auctions’ first motorcycle-only sale saw bikes of all makes and ages being snapped-up by keen enthusiasts from across the UK. With 80 percent of bikes offered being bought the King’s Lynn auctioneer – noted for its highly successful classic car sales – is scheduling another bike-only sale for the early Autumn.

Over 75 motorcycles were up for grabs, with a total sale of £134,731 including commission. Highest price of the day was £16,125 that bought the 1954 Vincent Comet, with the sale’s silver medal going to a 1958 Harley Davidson Duo Glide that was knocked down for £10,427. Coming in third was a 1962 Triumph T100SS that pulled in £7417.

Other British bikes also did well: Two Velocettes, a 1958 Venom and a 1933 250MOV, both got away at £6450. Highest-priced BSA was a 1957 Golden Flash that made £3977. A strong Japanese bike offering fared well too, with a 1978 Kawasaki KH250 away at £2795, just ahead of its £2750 upper estimate, and a 1981 Yaaha RD200 Twin electric hammered away at £1397. Most expensive Honda, a TL125, bested its £2200 upper estimate to make £2472.

Italian bikes made a highly welcome appearance with a 1960 Moto Guzzi Lodola GT235 costing its new owner £2741 and a more modern, 2005 MV Agusta F4 1000 £5106.

Among the scooter and moped selection a no-reserve 1955 Douglas Vespa was off at £1075, a 1983 Yamaha £250, a 1962 Cazanave moped making £350 and a 1958 Leopard Bobby £400.
