A rare 1939 Vincent HRD Meteor is expected to fetch more than £50,000 at an auction to be held as part of the Carole Nash Eurojumble. The jumble takes place at Netley Marsh between 2/3 September, with the Charterhouse auction taking place on the Friday.
The Vincent has undergone restoration with some of the finishing touches being added by legendary former racer Sammy Miller.
Charterhouse head of motorcycling Matthew Whitney said: “This was one of the final Series A Meteors built as Vincent ceased production of the model shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War. It was a very quick machine in its day, capable of nearly 90mph – almost twice as fast a family saloon of its day.”
Over the two days, clubs will be showcasing a range of machines, and the popular garage clear-out returns for Saturday allowing one-day traders to come and sell their wares.
Event head Richard Graham said: “The Carole Nash Eurojumble has stands and traders offering rare items that you simply can’t get anywhere else. If you’re a restorer or maintain machines then this is the place to be.”
