Silverstone Auctions host dedicated motorcycle sale at The Classic

Silverstone Auctions next sale is The Classic at Silverstone with their dedicated motorcycle sale on Friday 30th July. Silverstone Auctions are welcoming back bidders and enthusiasts into the room for their flagship sale.


Included in the line-up is this c.1982 Harris F1 Suzuki XR69 Replica This is one of a batch of frames which was built by Harris in the late 1970s and early 1980s. This exceptional bike was sold to Steve Wheatman of Team Classic Suzuki who had Maria Costello ride it with success at the Manx GP in 2010 to 2012. Maria raced it again at CRMC events and in South Africa. In running order and ready to compete, it is estimated at £13,000 - £15,000.


Another exceptional bike is this 1983 Ducati 864cc Mike Hailwood Replica. This is a lovely classic MHR, with the correct numbers and still in its original paint. This smart Ducati celebrated Mike Hailwood’s 1978 TT win by producing the MHR from 1979 – 1986 and is still in good running order. With a recent service, this is a very collectable, UK-registered example with a V5c and is estimated at £14,000 – 16,000.


Mark Bryan, motorcyclist specialist for Silverstone Auctions, added “We already have a superb line-up of motorcycles with more going live on our website every day. Our catalogue closes on Monday 12th July for this auction, don’t miss your chance to submit your motorcycle for this dedicated sale at one of our biggest events.”


Also going under the hammer on Friday 30 July is this 1995 Ducati 900SS SP. This is a limited edition 900SS SP, which is the US equivalent of the Superlight model and is rare in the UK. This super quick example has benefitted from some carbon fibre bits, adjustable Showa suspension and an aluminium swingarm. The 1995 Ducati is an original example, very collectable and described by Silverstone Auctions’ vendor as in ‘immaculate condition’. Estimated at £9,000 – £10,000.


The last of the four motorcycles to be previewed is this 1974 Kawasaki H2B Mach IV 750. Presented in a striking colour combination of Black and Candy Purple, this Kawasaki motorcycle has correct numbers and is UK registered from new. With 74bhp and 126 mph in 1972, Kawasaki's 750 Triple had a bit of a 'bad boy' reputation and is now accompanied by a history file containing some old MOT’s, the UK V5c and is estimated at £16,000 – 18,000.
