Palmer Snell's Motorcycle Auction - one of the longest running bike auctions in the country - passed the 50 mark in March 2006.
This is no ordinary bike auction - you never know what you'll find at Palmer Snell. You would expect classic British machines - Triumph and BSA twins, Velocettes and Vincents. But they are just part of the sale - there's a huge variety of machinery at every Palmer Snell auction.
A 1942 Harley-Davidson WLA can sit side by side with a Honda CX500 sidecar outfit. A Mobylette or Puch Maxi moped follows on from an overhead cam Jawa built for the ISDT. The last few sales have seen a whole string of Euro rarities too: Ratier, the French 'BMW', a Swiss Universal and more familiar bikes like the Moto Guzzi Le Mans and Cagiva Elefant.
Fancy some cheap performance? How about a GS750 Suzuki or CB900 Honda, at £200 apiece? Or a well kept BMW R75 at just £700? A Russian-made Cossack Voskhod sold for £90 and a Honda CD200 for £60. All of them complete, not basket cases.
Or perhaps Japanese classics are your thing? Honda's early fours - the CB400 and 500 - plus Kawasaki KH250s and Suzuki GT380s, have all featured recently. Too modern? A 1926 Norton M18 and '24 Raleigh 2 3/4hp have sold too. Too common? How about an MZ ETZ 250 built by Difazio Motorcycles for endurance road runs? Or a Jawa speedway frame, road registered and ready to take a Triumph T100 twin power unit!
Road, race, grasstrack, cyclemotors, speedway, mopeds, sidecars, British, European, Japanese, American - variety is the spice at Palmer Snell.
