Quarter-million pound Vincent

The Stafford Classic MotorCycle Show was the place to be last month if you had a pension lump sum burning a hole in your pocket (or were a wrongly accused postmaster with a big settlement…) Because Bonhams had some extremely high-end items on sale, including an ultra-rare 1938 Vincent-HRD Series-S Rapide, with an estimate of £240,000-£280,000. A bit rich for you? There were also a pair of Brough Superiors, a 1922 SS80 Special and a 1924 SS80, available for just £70,000-120,000.

Japanese classic racing fans were also covered, with the options of a 1972 Kawasaki 750cc H2-R ridden by Gary Nixon, estimated at £120,000-£160,000 or a 1974 Suzuki TR750 ridden by Barry Sheene, estimated at £120,000-£140,000.
