Default A Private Collection of Old Bikes

Although not in India and clearly not Cars, i thought i'd share some photos that i took. These are all from a private collector in the UK.

I've tried to identify as many as i could, but the knowledge of people here to either correct the information or give more detail would be useful.

I hope you enjoy them.

Photo 1 - Royal Enfield (1948-49) 500cc
Photo 2 - BSA Bantam - 1950's
Photo 3 & 4 - Excelsior Maxman - Late 1930's
Photo 5 - Henley
Photo 6 - Brough Superior - 1930's - 1150?
Photo 7 - 1956 Melntyre/Potts - 250cc Velocette Special
Photo 8 - Panther
Photo 9 - 1954 NSU ( 250cc R.S. Sport Max) - Meant to be the NSU ridden by 1955 World Champion Hermann Muller.
Photo 10 - Rotrax Jap - 500cc

There's a few more photos to come.

Its in the Peak District, not far from manchester. Cant remember the exact village its in, but ill find out.

Its this guy whos got a garage and in the summer opens it up to visitors for a few days.

Will try and get more details for you.

Mods: Dont really agree with the thread being moved into the International Automtoive Scene. The people interested in this kind of thing all hang around the vintage section.

The Bantam looks like a modified D1. I don't think its a standard model or maybe it's a competition one. The only model with the high exhaust was the Bushman

I have a Bantam D10 which was first registered in Leeds in 1968. I bought it as a 'basket case' about 20 years ago with the intention of restoring it but could not find the time. I will stick a picture up when I get the chance.

Hey Roop .. Nice to see you around here. It will be nice to see some pictures added from your end, the bikes you owned in India and now own in the US. Got your mail with the Brough Superior link. 2,00,000 USD - wow. I am sure your 10 HP V twin will fetch a lot of money too.

Thanks Bud. I will try to put up some pictures, but then I think people might not be interested in US bikes, unless it is related to the topic. I did get a Triumph tr4, and a Royal Enfleld Interceptor II 1968 recently. will share some pictures soon.
