The 25th Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show was another great success with crowds flocking to Stafford showground last weekend.

The big news of the show came from Bonhams, delivering a record-breaking sale achieving £3.4 million. The star of which was the ex-C.F Edwards, 1925 Brough Superior 981cc SS100 Sand Racer Project, which despite being completely dismantled, achieved more than double its estimate and sold for £264,500 – the highest amount ever achieved for a dismantled Brough Superior.

James Stensel, Head of Bonhams Motorcycle Department UK said, “Once again, the Bonhams motorcycle department has achieved exactly what it set out to do, to sell the best machines on the market at the best prices. Our realistic estimates attracted bidders from across the globe, and bidding throughout was incredibly lively. We are absolutely thrilled with the results of the sale. We look forward to our Spring Sale in April and continuing to consign the widest possible range of top machinery and automobilia.”

Exhibition Manager Nick Mowbray said, “Once again we’ve had a great October show at Stafford. With the addition of a brand new Off- Road Hall, the famous Classic Racer GP Paddock, along with stunning bike displays and the wonderful and expansive mix of club stands, there has been something for everyone and we look forward to returning next April.”
