With the tickle of summer heat come waves of enthusiasts to the International Classic Motorcycle Show – and the Bonham Summer Stafford Sale will guarantee a pretty package for a penny or two.
According to a report from MCN, this year’s auctions will boast more than 330 motorcycles from nearly every era – from the nostalgia of the 1913 Brough 497cc Model H to the speedy cherry sheen of a mint 1973 MV Agusta 750S.
Leading the pack is a Brough Superior SS100 1000cc Supercharged Special re-creation, the baby of Brough devotee Ewan Cameron – a marque expert and engineer in his own rights.
Cameron built the Brough Superior as an homage to Noel Pope, who recorded the fastest speed around the 1939 Brooklands circuit at 124.51 mph just before the onslaught of the Second World War.
It is a record that still stands today, given that the circuit never reopened.
All other bikes at Bonham’s auction boast similarly beautiful back-stories and will be available for sale from July 2-4.
The auction will be held live, though all bidders will need to have gotten their hands on a ticket off of the International Classic MotorCycle Show’s website in advance due to compliance with current restrictions.
Looking forward to the biddings, and make sure to stay cool out there.
