AJS and Scott machines sold by Cheffins

Cheffins says its Cambridge Vintage Sale at Sutton on Saturday (22 April) saw a record sale total of more than £2m, making it “the largest collective vintage sale in Europe”. Showcasing a number of the world’s most unusual classic and vintage tractors, motorcycles and steam engines available to purchase at auction, a number of record prices were achieved across various lots. With more than 4000 people in attendance, buyers came from across the UK and abroad, including from Germany, USA, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and the Sudan.

Cheffins also saw a large consignment of classic motorcycles. With over 71 available to go under the hammer, the highest price achieved was £11,340 for a 1938 499cc AJS Model which represented a rare opportunity to purchase one of the pre-war AJS models. This was closely followed by a magnificent 1927 Scott Super Squirrel which sold for £9396.

The sale rate for motorcycles was second-to-none, with 92% of lots selling for well in excess of their guide prices as private buyers competed against dealers due to a lack of stock in the market.
