vincent black shadow makes £85,100 at museum sale

The H&H auction at the National Motorcycle Museum on Saturday (2 November) grossed in excess of £715,000, with a 67% sale rate. Top seller was the 1951 Vincent Black Shadow Series C which made £85,100.

A 1925 NUT (Newcastle-upon-Tyne) that had been with the vendor for some time and was sold as part of his estate for £28,350. It was restored many years ago to a high standard with little use following this work. It still had its original Hampshire registration and current V5c. The NUT will need recommissioning before use but is an ideal bike for the Banbury and vintage runs.
 
NUT Motorcycles was a British motorcycle manufacturer founded in Newcastle Upon Tyne in 1912 by Hugh Mason and Jock Hall, who had previously been making motorcycles since 1906 under a badge based on Mason’s initials, HM, and later under the name of Jesmond and Bercley. By 1913 their racing motorcycles were competing successfully in the Isle of Mann TT races and Hugh Mason’s JAP engined NUT motorcycle won the 1913 Junior TT by just 46 seconds. In 1933 the company closed for good.
