Velocette LE 200cc
Reg. no. PKX 755
Frame no. 15470
Engine no. 200/16938
The Velocette LE – ‘Little Engine’ – was a common sight for well over 20 years on the roads of Britain and are most often associated with the police – over 50 forces used them during their 23-year production run from 1948. In police use, the bikes became known as ‘Noddy Bikes’ – not due to any link to the well-known children’s book character, but rather due to the fact that the junior police riders who usually rode them were required to nod to their superiors when passing – a salute would have been the norm, but this was not encouraged as it involved removing a hand from the handlebars. Thus, nodding police officers chugging along on this distinctive bike became a common sight.
This 200cc LE is very genuine and appears to be complete; although starting has not been attempted, it turns over freely. There aren’t any documents.

Extra details and estimates:

£1,000 - 2,000

1966 Norton Dominator 650SS - RICHARD EDMONDS AUCTIONEERS Sale of Vintage & Classic Motorcycles Saturday 15th February 2020 Unit H, The Old Laundry, Ivy Road, Chippenham, Wiltshire, SN15 1SB

1966 Norton Dominator 650SS

Reg. no. FHO 275D
Frame no. 18 15677
Engine no. 18SS115677/P
The 1961 introduction of the Dominator 650SS marked a new development for Norton’s famed ‘featherbed’ frame, which had been developed in 1950 for racing machines and later found its way into road bikes. Widely considered the finest-handling frame design of its era, it was now enhanced with the top rails closer together at the front of the saddle, and hence became known as the ‘slimline featherbed’. The new model was powered by a 650cc twin-carburettor engine, providing excellent performance and leading the 650SS to be widely proclaimed as ‘the best of the Dommies’, therefore achieving Norton’s aim of being a match for the Triumph Bonneville of the time.
This Dominator is a lovely example in unrestored condition. It comes with assorted documents including an old logbook and a V5c.

Extra details and estimates:

£4,000 - 5,000

1956 Triumph Terrier
Reg. no. YON 461
Frame no. T11824
Engine no. T1511824
In 1952 Triumph re-entered the market for lightweight commuter machines with the introduction of the 149cc Terrier. A simple, compact, unit-construction four-stroke with four-speed gearbox, the Terrier was joined in 1954 by an enlarged version - the 200cc Tiger Cub - that offered 60mph-plus performance and 100mpg. This Terrier has been restored by a well-known Tiger Cub/Terrier specialist and we are told that it is still in good condition. It is offered with a V5c.
**This bike is 1955, not 1956 as catalogued.**

1964 COMMER COB 7cwt SERIES III - CHARTERHOUSE AUCTIONS Royal Bath & West Showground Exmoor Hall BA4 6QN SUNDAY 9th FEBRUARY 2020


SELECTED BY THE SQUIRREL

FEATURED AUCTION


CHARTERHOUSE AUCTIONS
Royal Bath & West Showground
Exmoor Hall BA4 6QN
SUNDAY 9th FEBRUARY 2020




1964 COMMER COB 7cwt SERIES III
Reg No: 978 TTA
 Chassis number B631888
Engine number B631888
Estimate: £5000 - £6000


The Commer Cob a Rootes Group model was a panel van based on the Hillman Husky estate. The first version of the lightweight commercial appeared in the 1950s. The Cob saw a steady development over ifs production with improvements to the engine, seating and bodywork through Series I II & III. This charming Series III Cob was originally supplied by Blue Star Garages Ltd, Axminster, Devon to its first owner a Mr W Newbury, a farmer from Colyton, Devon. The original order form is on file stating that Mr Newbury paid £452.8.2 plus an allowance of £20 for a part exchange. Mr Newbury retained the car for twenty years adding 20,000 miles to the odometer using the van to transport the odd calf to Axminster market. Mr Newbury’s daughter and son in law then owned the Cob for a short period before part-exchanging it. The next custodian added a further 20,000 miles on the clock until our vendors' father purchased the van in 2005 with 42,000 on the odometer. The Cob had been in storage for six or so years and required some recommissioning and repairs but was soon back on the road. Over the next 14 years, the van was steadily improved but still retains an honest and genuine appearance which has been admired at local classic car events. Now displaying a believed 55,000 miles from new this refreshingly original Cob will be offered for auction with a history file containing an original owners instruction manual, a run of previous MOTs, tax discs, receipts and the original order form.

All lots in this sale are sold as-is and bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding. Please read our terms and conditions.
