Mark Bryan of H&H Classics Motorcycle Department says: ”This collection offers a fantastic opportunity to pick up one of the great names of 1920’s British biking in reasonable condition. They have not run for a few years but won’t take much TLC to bring into good running order. They are all very original and all eligible for the Banbury Run.” This year will be the 69th running of Vintage Motor Cycle Club Banbury Run which is the largest gathering of pre-1931 motorcycles & three-wheelers in the world.

The Home Farm Collection includes some 34 bikes found in an old stable barn on a Berkshire farm. Among them are some notable survivors.

In the 1920s motorcycle development in Britain had continued a pace, many bikes sported internal expanding drum brakes, to slow the machines down properly. Many of the bikes produced in the ‘20s still supported the Flat Tank style of fuel tank and the sprung single seat, as seen in many of the bikes in this collection.
