first motorcycle auction called off

The first motorcycle auction by a company in the south west and scheduled for Sunday, 4 December was called off owing to a shortage of machines. The photograph above is from the organiser’s website.

It had been planned to hold the sale at the Chequered Flag café on the A38 at Liskeard.

Behind the planned weekly sales is Martin Smith, whose family has had a marine engineering company, a lorry, taxi and coach firm, and a cargo airline but in more recent years has been involved in vehicle transport. The new company is MTT Motorcycle Auctions and is based in east Devon.

MTT is using crowdfunding to raise money to buy a mobile auction/staff unit which would allow it to hold auctions without the need for expensive premises.

“This will keep our fees low and is more practical,” said Smith. “All we need is a large car park.

“Our Motorcycle auction is to be conducted weekly – every Sunday at 1pm. Our auctions should be well attended and customers can select from a wide range of motorcycles, quads, trikes and scooters.”

Entries are open to trade, private, commercial and public sector and MTT does not charge an entry fee.
