Musician donates motorcycles for auction

The motorcycles will be sold as part of Bonhams Autumn Stafford Sale, an annual event taking place at the 21st Carole NashClassic Motorcycle Mechanics Show, held on October 19 2014.

The collection stretches across the past fifty years, from a 1962 Vespa 200CC VBB (£2,000-3,000), to a 2010 Honda CB1300 Super Four (£3,000-4000).

Coxon commented: “These bikes have taken me on a lot of wonderful adventures up and down the country. As a parent, it seems fitting that they should be sold to benefit the NSPCC’s important work in supporting and protecting children all over the UK.”

The star lot of the collection, a 1968 Triumph Trophy 650, was comprehensively restored by the Bike Shed M.S, and upon completion went on to win the ‘Best Classic’ award at the 2001 NCC South Cambridgeshire Custom Show. Coxon purchased the Trophy in October 2002, and has covered only a few hundred miles since. Described as in generally excellent condition, the Triumph is available to the highest bidder, with an estimate of £6,000-8,000.

Ben Walker, International Director for Bonhams Collectors’ Motorcycles, said: “This is a great opportunity for fans of Graham and Blur, to not only take home an incredible piece of motorcycle machinery, but also know that the proceeds of the sale will go to a great deserving cause, the NSPCC.
