Hi m-m,
Are you trying to throw us off the scent so to speak?  ;D
The Scott and S7 are lot 420
http://www.biddleandwebb.com/lotdetailzoom.cfm?auctionhallid=3&saleid=517&itemuuid=ACF0AA5C-C19E-2008-ADA1E9AF347AC33E&item_imageid=360271

The Matchless with Vincent forks and the BMW in the previous lots should be more in demand ??

Many years of fun and anguish for the purchaser of any of the three lots! Great to see such good quality "junk" is still around.

I assume the BMW will attract quite a crowd - OHV and I suppose pre-war?

I wonder why the seller put them in that auction which is mainly paintings, ceramics etc? I'd have thought the one at the NMM would have attracted more interest.

I always like the HJ Pugh bike auctions where a bargain or two is always to be had. Last year I bought a scruffy box full of (mostly) Norton parts. Nestling at the bottom was a modern BTH K2F type mag which I sold on ebay for 350. Other parts which I didn't need netted a further 150 or so.

The boxful cost me 70.....

 Deceased House clearance from the look of it.
Some bargains to be spotted in these auctions, trouble its never any thing I want.

Yes, but don't buy a Banksy. "Your painting will self destruct in ten minutes".
Getting grumpy.

I never saw the Sunbeam frame.
Theres some money to be made there, looks like two  2 speed Scotts plus gearboxes and mags.

Makes me wish I'd never sold that Scott engine years ago.

Hi All,
For those interested the Scott and sundry S7 bits made 6,000
The BMW went to 26,000  :o :o ::) ::)
The Matchless made 12,000,
I thought the Matchless would have made a bit more ??? taking into account the value of the Vincent front end ??
