The 1935 Ariel Red Hunter VN SP has been restored but requires final fettling from the new owner. It is estimated to fetch around £3500-£3800 at the Charterhouse auction.
The 1937 Sunbeam Model 8 has been in its current ownership for 40 years and is expected to fetch around £4500-£4800.
The 1947 BSA C11 has been recently restored and has had little use since its restoration. This motorcycle is estimated to go for around £2800-£3200.
The 1949 Vincent HRD Black Shadow Series C has been fully restored and has been on display at the owner’s home. It is predicted to make around £60,000-£70,000 at auction. The Vincent Black Shadow, when new, was sold as the world’s fastest production motorcycle and tested to 125mph. They were known for their design innovation, engineering excellence and high performance. They had adjustable controls, twin front brakes, rear suspension and the engine is a stressed frame member. When new the cost was almost double that of competitors and was a rare sight on the roads, just as it is today.
“The Vincent Black Shadow is a thumping great machine. With its 1000cc engine it would take its owners to 125mph at a time when most family saloon cars would struggle to go half as fast,” said Charterhouse classic motorcycle expert Matthew Whitney. “They always have been, and always will be, one of the most sought-after motorcycles and this is a rare opportunity for a buyer to acquire a beautifully restored Black Shadow.” Read more about this sought after motorcycle on the Charterhouse website.
