There was standing room only at H&H Classics Donington sale yesterday despite Storm Doris doing its worst. The wild weather blew in some forceful bidding on the 76 bikes entered for the sale giving a sell rate of 90%.
Highlights of the sale included a 1968 unrestored Velocette Thruxton which sold for £24,295, a new world record for an unrestored Thruxton at auction. A very rare c1929 Humber 350 sold for £9,968; and a 1952 Vincent Comet series C sold for £22,400.
Mark Bryan, Head of Bike Sales said: “It was a fabulous first sale of the year showing what the potential is in this difficult market. Results show that the buyers are out there. We are looking forward to our next “even bigger and better” bike sale in May
