Bonhams have announced the sale of the Sant Hilari Collection on Saturday, April 27, as part of their two-day Spring Stafford Sale (April 27/28), at The International Classic MotorCycle Show.
The entire collection will be offered without reserve.
The collection comprises more than 100 important competition machines covering marques such as: Gilera, Moto Guzzi, Kramer, Husqvarna, Maico, CZ, Jawa, Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, KTM, Bultaco, Motobi, Ossa, MAV, SWM, Moto Villa, Beta, Anvian, DKW, Cagiva, Greeves, Tri-BSA, Sachs, Fantic, Cannondale, VOR, Aprilia, Husaberg, Kawasaki, Montesa, Macal, Ducson and Ducati.
The vendor amassed this incredible collection of machines over a lifetime spent as both a competitive rider and a works mechanic for several top-flight teams. The collection charts the development of many manufacturers including several prototype examples.
James Stensel, Head of Bonhams’ Motorcycle Department, commented: “We at Bonhams pride ourselves on catering to every aspect of the motorcycling world, and competition machines play an integral role within it. So many of today’s best riders cut their teeth on competition motorcycles, and it is a corner of the market that is sadly often overlooked despite its passionate international fan base. We look forward to welcoming like-minded enthusiasts and collectors to our Spring Stafford Sale for another two-day motorcycle bonanza.”
In addition to the Sant Hilari Collection, the sale includes an impressive range of veteran, vintage, and classic machines.
