Interesting eclectic mix of bikes and cars up for grabs this weekend..970s short stroke screamer appeals..

THE BANBURY RUN SALE, COLLECTORS MOTORCYCLES & MOTOR CARS - 7 Jun 2014, starting at 12:00 BST

Yes of course there are Astons, barn find stuff etc - which will doubtless go for crazy prices - but some of the stuff below looks interesting.....

Pick of the litter on the bikes for me on the bikes would be the:

1922 RUDGE 499CC MULTI IOM TT MODEL - it's ready to go and enjoy on some country roads - estimated at @£8,000 - 12,000+1951 VINCENT 998CC BLACK SHADOW - although requiring restoration - a Black Shadow is just sex appeal on two wheels - estimated at @£30,000 - 40,000+THE EX-DICK HAWES,1976 BRM-YAMAHA RACING SIDECAR OUTFIT (BRM P205) - needs restoration - but a unique TZ750 stroker powered device - orginally tested by Hall & Hall supremo Rick Hall in period! - estimated at @£8,000 - 10,000

The cars which flick my switch include:

BMW 2002 TURBO SPORTS SALOON - I have had a hot F2 engined '02 years ago - and the Turbo with it's lary looks and comical turbo lag has always appealed - estimated @£22,000 - 26,000+1963 MESSERSCHMITT KABINENROLLER 'TG1400' SPECIAL - 1400 CC A series motivation with split webers! - Must be absolutely barking mad to drive! - estimated @£6,000 - 9,000+1964 AUSTIN MINI COOPER 970 'S' RALLY CAR - one of the few with it's original 970s engines - fully prepped ready to go - very low estimate??? @£23,000 - 28,000+1927 HISPANO-SUIZA 27HP T49 WEYMANN SALOON - well this is just ridiculously cool. Hispano Suiza with patina - if you don't know already - you are past salvation...
