Classic Bikes at Silverstone Auctions

Silverstone Auctions have now closed their catalogue for their motorcycle sale at The Classic on Friday 30th July. Silverstone Auctions will be welcoming bidders and enthusiasts into the room for this auction at Silverstone Circuit, with absentee bidding also available.

Confirmed for the catalogue is this fabulous, 1939 Norton Model 30 International 500. This was one of the last before production stopped and is now offered from part of a private collection. This bike has been well restored by its current owner with minimal use since and has correct numbers. With a well-known history, UK registered on a V5c, this bike is accompanied by a history file with copies of old RF60/V5s.

With just 74 miles from new and in totally original condition is this 2018 Brough Superior SS100. This is the latest Brough Superior which is offered from part of a large private collection and is completed with a stamped service history. This will definitely be a future classic!

Going under the hammer is this 1952 Purdy Triumph 500. This is a hand-built customer bike by Purdy Engineering and is a truly exceptional custom built Triumph. This beautiful bike was based on a 1952 Triumph Thunderbird and has been recognised by the Triumph Owners Club. In good running order and UK registered on a current V5c, Silverstone Auctions have guided this motorcycle at £13,000 – £15,000.

Mark Bryan, motorcyclist specialist for Silverstone Auctions, added

“We have a superb catalogue confirmed for our flagship auction including these bikes previewed and many more on our website. Don’t forget to register to bid prior to the auction weekend if you can.”

Also heading to The Silverstone Classic is this 1923 Indian Scout. This motorcycle is believed to have been in the UK since the 1970’s and has recently been registered. This is a very original example with the correct frame and engine and has been owned by Silverstone Auctions’ vendor for the last ten years who is an Indian enthusiast/collector and club member. Completed with its original ammeter and in running order, this bike is eligible for the Banbury Run.

Another example confirmed is a lovely original and unrestored 1973 Kawasaki H2A 750. This is a very collectable example and rare to find in this condition with the correct frame and engine. Showing just 2,380 miles and complete with a NOVA, the engine of this example turns freely with compression. Silverstone Auctions have guided this motorcycle at £13,000 – £15,000. Silverstone Auctions will start their three day auction at The Classic off on Friday 30th July at 2pm with this motorcycle sale.

The auction house will continue their sale with the classic cars and automobilia on Saturday 21st July and Sunday 1st August. Bidding will still be available online, via The Saleroom or Proxibid by phone or via commission too.

In 2020 we sold £32.3million worth of cars and The Silverstone Classic Live Online Auction was our highest grossing sale in the history of the company. Following the success of the company, The Silverstone Auctions group became the UK's market leading classic car auction house in 2020.

We hold the exclusive automotive auction rights for Silverstone Circuit where we host several stand-alone events each year, as well as our annual headline sale as part of the Silverstone Classic, the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival. In addition to our sales at Silverstone Circuit, we also host several auctions each year at other major classic car events, including the NEC Classic Motor Show and Race Retro. At present, the events have been unable to go ahead in their typical format, but we have continued to work closely with each of these event partners for online versions.

Over the years we have also been selected by several the UK’s official owners’ clubs to hold marque-dedicated sales, including the highly regarded Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain, Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club and Porsche Club Great Britain.

With years of market expertise and specialist knowledge of the world’s vintage and modern car brands, our team works hard to provide accurate valuations and connect vendors and buyers across our global customer base.
