On April 27-28, the auction “The Spring Stafford Sale” was held in Stafford, United Kingdom. Several motorcycles were sold for record money.
One of the main lots was the Triumph TR6SS 1962 Bud Eckins. The motorcycle went under the hammer for 97,750 pounds (about 125,000 dollars) – about 3 times more expensive than the planned amount of revenue. On this bike, Bad Eakins won the ISDT 1962 competition.
The next record holder is the Coventry Eagle Flying-8 1925. A very rare specimen with a 981-cc V-engine. He was bought by a girl who paid 218,500 pounds (about $ 285,000).
The third is the Vincent-HRD Series-A Comet 1935. The cost of the bike was 97,750 pounds (about $ 128,000). A rare bike was restored in 2015 by the famous restorer Glyn Johnson.
In total, the auctioneers sold 92% of the motorcycles on display, collecting 3,892,397 pounds (about 5,088,000 pounds), which is also a new record for motor auctions.
