Estimated to sell for £35,000 to £45,000 this 1934 Sunbeam is one of just four bronze head models produced and it is thought to be the only survivor. It is believed to be the factory development machine. Now restored it was displayed at the National Motorcycle Museum in previous years. It is in running order and has run recently.

This race model has Amal TT carb, close ratio gearbox with foot change and Smiths "Soup Plate" speedo.

An estimate of between £25,000 and £30,000 has been put on the Norton Manx 40M which is "mostly original and unrestored". It was bought new and entered by legendary tuner Reg Dearden and is believed to have been used by Ralph Rensen in 1960/1961. A copy of factory record is included. It has recently been running.

The 1928 Scott TT Works, estimate £30,000 - £40,000, is described as an original machine with correct numbers. This works machine comes with a complete history file including a list of all previous owners. It still has its original buff log books. It was entered for the 1928 Dutch TT. Fully restored now to show winning condition this important and historic Scott machine was twice a winner at the Scott Owners Club. It is said to be in good running order.
