An unrestored 1966 Velocette Thruxton was sold by H&H Classics at its Donington Park Auction on July 28, for £20,000, twice the pre-sale estimate, and a new world record for an unrestored bike of this type.
Mark Bryan, a motorcycle specialist at H&H, said: “We are delighted with this result and this new record. There were no Brexit nerves evident, and 85% of the motorcycles sold.”
He commented further: “It is super rare to find a bike in this condition, which is not even on the Velocette Owners’ Club register. This motorcycle is a very real and rare discovery.”
