Although COVID has caused major disruption to the auction business with reduced lots and remote viewing, it hasn't killed them off completely and now that the pandemic threat is reducing they are beginning to get back to business. H&H are a case in point with their forthcoming auction in June at the NMM.
There are four Triumphs of interest in the 80 lots. The 1975 T160 is an interesting lot - and could well exceed it's £7,000 - £9,000 estimate. Matching numbers, ridden not stored, and in what seems to be original condition. Hopefully it won't go into a private collection never to be seen again.
There is also a rather tasty TSX from 1982 in a rare colour scheme (though at that stage in Meriden's history most bikes were on the rare side as not many were being made). Again, matching numbers. The estimate of £5,000 to £6,000 is fairly substantial but it is again likely to exceed that.
There is also a 1967 T120 Bonneville. That's estimated at £6,500 to £7,500 which is par for the course. Yet again it has matching numbers and has undergone restoration. If you've always fancied a Bonneville classic then this could be of interest.
Finally there's a more budget friendly 1967 Tiger 90 with an estimate of £3,500 to £4,500. This has been restored and has had some upgrades so isn't original, but it's still a nice little classic motor.
There is also a replica X75 Hurricane up for auction, but that is just that, a replica built on a BSA engine.
The auction is on the 9th June from 12:00 and is being held at the National Motorcycle Museum near Coventry, UK. Viewing is from 9am on the day but you will need to book a viewing slot.
