Classic British motorcycles are an essential part of the UK’s motoring heritage. During the ’50s and ’60s, the motorcycle industry was the third largest earner for Britain (after cars and whisky), and British bikes had an unrivalled reputation worldwide. These classic designs have become a part of our cultural history as well as our proud industrial past.
Triumph Bonneville T120
The iconic twin made by Triumph from the late 50’s is the quintessential bike for any bike enthusiast. You can’t say the word ‘Triumph’ without thinking Bonneville.
BSA Gold Star
Arguably, the most famous model to be made by the Birmingham Small Arms company. With a great racing pedigree, being very successful at the Isle of Man TT. It was one of the quickest in its era and was popular in the modified scene of the time.
A notable bike in British history with its slanted forward barrels and revolutionary frame design saw it overcome the problems of old, vibration.
The world’s fastest production motorcycle of its time. Built in much smaller numbers than its competitors giving ownership a whole new level of exclusivity. Very much contributing to their ever increasing high values that we see today.
