V-twins on song

The H&H Classics sale at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham, achieved a total of £714,748, and a sell rate of 66%.

A very handsome and desirable 1925 NUT that had been with the vendor for some time, and was sold as part of his estate, made an impressive £28,350 at the sale held on November 2.

It was restored many years ago to a high standard with little use following this work.


It still had its original Hampshire registration and with a little recommissioning will make a superb machine.

Top price in the sale was this extremely well-presented Vincent Black Shadow (right).

Dispatched to Surtees of Forest Hill, London on November 19, 1951, it sold for £83,250.


This all-matching numbers Black Shadow was owned by the current vendor since the mid 1980s.

It was purchased by him in a complete, but dismantled state and was sent to Bob Dunn to be restored to concourse condition.

Over many years Mr Dunn took on all mechanical and engineering work.
