plenty of twenties bikes at first museum sale

The first H&H Classics sale at its prestigious new venue – the National Motorcycle Museum on 2 June – offers a collection of mainly 1920s-era bikes with a focus on lightweights. The whole collection is in at ‘no reserve’.

Many of the bikes from The Home Farm Collection are getting close to a century old. They include a 1924 Humber 350; a 1924 BSA “Roundtank” Junior; and a 1928 Triumph NP.

Mark Bryan of H&H Classics Motorcycle Department says: “This collection offers a fantastic opportunity to pick up one of the great names of 1920s British biking in reasonable condition. They have not run for a few years but won’t take much TLC to bring into good running order. They are all very original and all eligible for the Banbury Run [the largest gathering of pre-1931 motorcycles and three-wheelers in the world].”

The Home Farm Collection includes 34 bikes found in an old stable on a Berkshire farm. Among them are some notable survivors.

In the 1920s motorcycle development in Britain had continued apace, many bikes sported internal expanding drum brakes, to slow the machines down properly. Many of the bikes produced in the 1920s still supported the flat tank style of fuel tank and the sprung single seat, as seen in many of the bikes in this collection.
