For sale: 1957 200cc Ariel LH Colt. Suffolk classic bike dealer Andy Tiernan is offering for sale this half-forgotten Ariel; a rare-ish bike that, in its day, provided its owner with years and miles of relatively trouble-free commuting and even touring. This example, we understand, was first registered in the UK on the 4th of January 1957. That was in Lincoln—and it retains its original registration mark: KVL 550. Described as a "beautiful two-tone example of Ariel's lightweight four stroke", this "dapper looking machine" was part of an Ariel collection from the last London-based owner who purchased the bike from Andy Tiernan in 2002. It comes with its original buff R.F. 60 cardboard logbook, the latest DVLA V5C registration document, and is registered under the 'Historic Vehicle' class for free road tax. It's also MOT exempt. Priced at £4,000, you can haggle it out with Andy on: 01728 724321. He's always ready to negotiate.

Classic bikes for sale graphic

 

Looking for a classic motorcycle? Or maybe something that's not quite so classic? Okay, cast your bleary peepers over our listings and see what's currently for sale. The sellers are waiting right now to do a little honest horse trading.

 

Some of these guys are dealers who we know personally. Others we know only by reputation. Some are private sales. But if we had any reason to doubt any of them, they wouldn't be on this page.

 

We don't update this feature anywhere near as often as we'd like. But then, the economy is still just trickling along at present. There really isn't a whole lot happening, and prices are all over the place. So just be patient, if you will, and keep checking.

 

These adverts are FREE on Sump. Just send us a decent snap or two plus the relevant details and we'll handle the rest. Ads will stay live for a month or so (or three) and then they'll come down unless you notify us otherwise. Meanwhile, keep buying and selling. That's what makes the wheels go round.

BMW R69
1958. 594cc. Nearly Concours. 1958 was a good year and this bike proves it. Restored and rebuilt by an experienced marque specialist in Sweden and still requiring some running in, it's excellent in all regards except for the left silencer which has been damaged by a battery acid leak. Still awaiting workshop appraisal here, after which a video will be added, but we are reliably assured it runs faultlessly and the restoration work looks to be of a high standard. Matching numbers 1958 machine with all the Swedish documents in order so if it sells in the UK you'll be the first owner and we'll help with the process so it'll be trouble-free.

Price: £13,500

Triumph T120C Bonneville

1964. T120C TT Special. 650cc. Nearly Concours. Matching numbers, with TOMCC certificate. Recently fettled to perfection and it shows: first kick starting and easy idling from a smooth powerful smoke-free engine. These are rare models of course and this example is even rarer in that it not only looks good but is a joy to ride.

Price: £17,950

11/6/2018


Silk 700S
1979. 660cc. Excellent condition.
This remarkably original late model 700S has a lovely history to go with it's excellent condition inside and out. The document file includes a Silk Motorcycles invoice for the rare Churchgate Mouldings fairing which was factory-fitted from new, along with the engine bars. We have only seen one other Silk here with this fairing on and it's recognisable by the bespoke fittings and tidy finish. A collection of old MOTs support the low mileage and the four former keepers are recorded on old V5 and V5C documents. The bike spent a year or so in Australia with her first owner but returned to the UK and retained the original well-known Silk FNU... registration number. It's a matching numbers machine as you would expect; always two apart; and this is one of the latest (most desireable) models number 130/132 of only 138 ever to leave the factory. Mechanically excellent as you can hear, fitted with Boyer ignition, just fettled to perfection at Classic Bike Workshop Ltd, MOTd and ready to ride. The fuel tank paintwork at the front on top has cracked and been repaired to a poor standard with a 700S sticker added to hide the imperfection and another sticker has been added to the tail fairing, presumably to hide a mark too. There is an invoice for a rear rack from Silk so maybe this marked the tail fairing? It's not fitted now so we're just guessing. The pin-stripes and paintwork are all original and in excellent condition (may have been lacquered since new) so we would be reluctant to re-paint the whole thing but a bit of very sympathetic professional repair and re-touching would restore complete originality and lift condition overall to nearly concours with a bit of detailing. Specification is probably as you want it to be: cast wheels, twin front discs and right gear-change. A bit of a gem.
