Top Gear Duo Decide To Part With Assets, We Want Them All
Hammond and May, now being referred to as the ‘Top Gear Duo’, are selling off their assets – well, a selection of their classic bikes to be precise.
Bonhams Spring Stafford Sale, which will take place at the end of this month (April 26) will include 12 motorcycles belonging to the pair. We’ve taken a look through the classic metal on offer and we’re finding it a little hard to resist.
Despite cutting lose some of their prized possessions, they were, as ever, able to see the funny side.
Just because I’m unemployed now doesn’t mean I have to get rid of everything. I was going to sell these bikes anyway. And those paintings, and my collection of Scalextric cars. Honest.
As a serious collector of motorcycles, it’s important to review one’s stable regularly, and the Bonhams Stafford sale is the ideal opportunity to move bikes on and possibly acquire new ones. I also have a canoe, and some Wharfedale hi-fi speakers, if anyone’s interested.
In classic Generation Game style, take a look at the conveyer belt of motorcycles on offer and try to fight the urge to place a bid. May is parting with:
