The Classic Vehicle auctioneers H and H are holding their first motorcycle auction of the year on the 22nd February at the Donington Park Race Circuit at Castle Donington, Derby, Derbyshire, DE74 2RP and amongst the motorcycles up for auction are four rather nice Triumphs.
First up is lot 14, a recently restored (though not running) 1961 5TA Speed Twin. It has matching numbers and the full bath-tub fairing and has an estimate of only £1,500 to £2,000. That would be a bargain for such a lovely machine requiring only a little re-commissioning.
Second we have lot 25, an unrestored US-style TR7 Tiger. Because the bike is original and still runs well, the estimate is around the £4,000 to £5,000 mark. That's possibly a little high so a cheeky bid may just get it.
Thirdly we have lot 51, a non-running but fairly original TR6R Tiger. This machine has been kept in a private collection and has matching numbers and a UK registration. With an estimate of only £4,500 to £5,000 this could be a great entry into the Classic scene and a good start for someone wanting to get some experience with restoring before they go for something more challenging.
Lastly we have lot 57, a rather tidy 1961 Tiger T110. This machine has been restored quite some time ago and doesn't have matching numbers - indeed the engine is a T110 from March 1961 but the frame is a 6T from March 1960. Because of that it looks like the estimate is a little high at £5,000 to £6,000 so again, unless there is a reserve, a cheeky low bid could secure it for you.
