1951 Vincent Black Shadow to Be Auctioned

Auction house Bonhams announced that it is preparing several goodies for the annual sale of Collectors' Motor Cars, Motorcycles, Historical Commercial Vehicles and Automobilia at the Harrogate Yorkshire Event Center, UK on November 18. Among the items that will be put up for grabs, there will also be a 1951 Vincent 998cc Black Shadow motorcycle, described as a ‘legend in its own lifetime’.

The motorcycle is estimated in between £40,000-50,000, and will be joined in the sale by a 1960 BSA 500cc Gold Star (estimated between £10,000-14,000) and an ultra-rare 1938 FN 500cc Model M11’Super Touring’, which is offered in perfect condition for between £8,000-£10,000.

However, as we said, the auction will also feature several interesting cars, such as a 1924 Sunbeam 20/60hp Saloon which was first owned by Sir Digby Legard of Scampston Hall in Malton. Nicknamed the "Supreme Sunbeam", the car has had several race successes and World Land Speed record achievements.

The model offered for grabs has a distinctive cream and black livery and retains the original upholstery. It is a rare example of a 20/60hp Sunbeam, and comes with a Swansea V5C registration document, current licence and MoT certificate. The car has attracted a pre-sale estimate of £24,000-28,000.

Furthermore, a 1928 Jowett 7hp Two-Seater with Dickey will also be on view, estimated between £3,000-4,000, as well as a 1969 Bedford CA Dormobile 4-Berth Camper Van which has run-up just 29,441 miles in forty years and is expected to reach £5,500-6,500.
