ANGLIA CAR AUCTIONS PUTS TWO-WHEELED CLASSICS UNDER THE HAMMER IN SPRING SALE

Posted on

Following its two increasingly successful sales in 2014, Anglia Car Auctions is holding three motorcycle sales in 2015, the first being on Saturday 7th March. The auction begins at 12noon, with memorabilia going under the hammer first, followed immediately afterwards by the motorcycles themselves.

The spring sale, on 7th March, has already seen some superb entries and ACA are looking for even more - all makes, models, ages, conditions, colours and creeds will be considered, plus of course those spares and memorabilia items you want to clear out.

Entries already include a superb 1930 500cc Sunbeam Model 9 Sports (estimate -£11,500/£12,500), an original ex RAF 1952 Triumph TRW side valve twin, complete with canvas saddle bags et al (est - £3800/£4400), and an immaculate 1976 50cc Yamaha FS1E (est - £3250/£3750).

There’s also a cult 1976 Honda 400/4 (est - £2200/£2500), and a very smart 1957 Velocette Venom (est - £7000/£8000). Staying with Velocette, there’s an equally smart 1936 250cc MOV (est - £5500/£6000), a fantastic looking 1958 Harley Davidson Duo Glide (est - £10,000/£12,000) and a rare, road going Cheney framed Triumph (est - £3000/4000).

Based in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, not only does this family owned concern have highly competitive commission rates, but they also offer a thoroughly professional and comprehensive service to both buyer and seller.

Well know and respected in the classic (and modern) car world, ACA saw a desperate need for classic motorcycle enthusiasts to be able to buy or sell their machines without being crippled by the further expense of high commissions. So they set a very reasonable 5% seller’s premium and 7.5% buyer’s - which undercut most of the established classic auction houses quite considerably, though unfortunately there’s nothing can be done about the dreaded vat!

What’s more, having put a tentative but successful toe in the water early last year, ACA followed it up with a second classic motorcycle auction in the Autumn, which proved to be even more popular, with a combination of excellent prices and plenty of bargains.

For a regularly updated entry list, with photographs, check out the website at www.angliacarauctions.co.uk. Motorcycle entry fee is £25 including vat with seller’s commission is 5%, buyer’s commission at 7.5%, with a minimum £50 plus vat on both.

Gates open at 9am. Admission is £5 by catalogue with free entry for motorcyclists and secure parking. To enter a motorcycle or automobilia into this sale, please call Guy Snelling 01553 771881 or 07701084692 or email at [email protected]
