Rare RAF survivor to headline Bristol show auction

A 1967 BSA motorcycle used by the RAF police is set to go under the hammer at the upcoming Carole Nash Bristol Classic MotorCycle Show on February 4-5, estimated to reach £5000-£6000.

Part of a classic and vintage auction run by Charterhouse, the rare machine will be sold on the second day of the event at Somerset’s Royal Bath & West Showground, with viewing in the auction hall open throughout the weekend – although a catalogue is required for entry on Sunday costing £10.

Head of motorcycles at Charterhouse Matthew Whitney said: “It is believed to be one of just three known survivors as the vast majority of these bikes have been civilianised or scrapped during the last 50 years.”

The 1967 BSA B40 was bought as a retirement project by the current owner and features its correct and rare original fairing, blue light, higher handlebars and RAF blue saddlebags. It is fitted with a 350cc engine.

Charterhouse is accepting further entries for the sale, and interested parties should contact Matthew Whitney or Nicola Holmes for more information…

As for the event itself, several clubs will go all out to impress with their extravagant displays and individuals will vie for the awards by showcasing their pride and joy in the private entry area. The halls will be packed with trade stands and there’s a huge autojumble, too. What more could you want from a weekend!?

Discount advance tickets for the show are now on sale, with a one day adult pass costing £11 when bought before 11.59 on Sunday, January 29 – that’s a £2 saving on the gate price. There are further savings for senior citizens, under-12s and there’s FREE parking.
