What's happening

Shannons auction results August 2022

Ducati MHR 900

This week's Shannons Winter classics auction showed some mixed results, though motorcycles generally did pretty well. The 1981 Ducati Hailwood 900 shown above was one of two on offer and fetched a solid Au$36,500 (US$24,400, GB£20,700).

vincent black shadow

The most expensive two-wheeled offering, a 1952 Vincent Black Shadow (above), saw bidding surpass Au$160,000 (US$111,000, GB£92,000) but surprisingly that wasn't enough to take it home.

Triumph Speed Twin

However Brit bikes generally did okay. This 1951 Triumph Speed Twin looked like solid value at Au$22,000 (US$15,300, GB£12,600).

BSA Spitfire motorcycle

As did this 1968 BSA  Spitfire MkIV at Au$18,100 (US$12,600, GB£10,400).

Norton Commando

A couple of 1972 Norton Commando 750s were on offer and this one (the closest to stock trim) went for Au$25,500 (US$17,800, GB£14,700).

Harley XLCR

Across the Atlantic, this Harley-Davidson XLCR 1000 went for Au$27,500 (US$19,100, GB£15,800). Cafe racers are not historically the Motor Company's stock-in-trade, which makes this one stand out as a collectible.

Indian scout

We've seen some strong prices for 1930s motorcycles over recent years, including for leaf-spring Indians. This 1934 Scout 45 (750) got plenty of interest and sold for Au$56,000 (US$39,000, GB£32,300).

BMW R90/6

There is still good value among air-head BMWs. This 1973 R90/6 would make a very use-able classic and went for Au$16,000 (US$11,100, GB£9200).

Honda Monkey bike

There was a modest fleet of Honda mini bikes and Monkey bikes on offer. This 2007 Z50 40th anniversary model was the premium lot, selling for Au$10,000 (US$7000, GB£5800).

Honda CB750 K3

Japanese hero bikes form the 1970s, as always, did respectably. This 1973 Honda CB750-Four K3 was good buying at Au$14,200 (US$10,000, GB£8200).

kawasaki z1 900

We've seen prices for Kawasaki Z1 and Z900 fluctuate over recent months. This 1975 example sold for Au$27,200 (US$18,900, GB£15,700).

Kawasaki H2A

That effort was outdone by the king of the strokers of the period, a 1973 Kawasaki H2A 750 triple, which in all its tangerine glory fetched Au$29,000 (US$20,200, GB£16,700).
