Bids at the ready for first Bristol Classic auction

Next month’s Carole Nash Bristol Classic MotorCycle Show is to host a classic auction for the first time in its 35-year history.

The show, which takes place on the weekend of 7-8 February at Somerset’s Royal Bath & West Showground, will feature a sale from Charterhouse and organisers anticipate a high attendance given the current state of the market.

Nick Mowbray, exhibition manager, said: “Whether it’s increased exposure on TV through, among others, the Motorbike Show or classy advertising campaigns featuring a certain ex-footballer by the name of David Beckham, classic bikes are in vogue right now and they are being bought and sold in big numbers.

“Combine this momentum with Charterhouse’s experience of running motoring sales, particularly at the Royal Bath & West, and we believe this joint venture at our Bristol show is a perfect fit and a natural ‘next step’ for an event that many deem to be their favourite of the year.”

Free viewing of the auction lots will be open to show-goers on 7 February.

Lots include a 1961 Velocette Venom and a 1987 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail trike estimated at £5500-£6500 and £7500-£8500 respectively.

The event itself will feature its usual collection of stunning classic machines and a range of trade stands. Bike jumble will also be housed in the venue’s indoor halls giving owners, restorers and riders the chance to get kitted out for 2015.
