Check out these four breathtaking bikes at the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show 2017
If you’re making the trip to the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show between 17-19 February 2017, don’t forget to say come and say hello to the Carole Nash team on stand M110.
As well as goodie bags, on-the-spot quotes, free coffee and gifts galore, we’ll have four breathtaking bikes lined up for your viewing pleasure. So don’t forget to bring your camera when you get up close and personal with these beauties.
1984 Ducati TT1 Racing Motorcycle
This 750-class TT1 is a bored-and-stroked version of the TT2 that carried Tony Rutter to four consecutive Formula 2 world titles.
It has a wider rear wheel and features a red-and-blue paint scheme. Only 60 TT1s were built, and they are now considered one of the most beautiful – and most collectible – Ducati race bikes ever made.
The bikes estimated value is as high as £95,000 and will be on sale at the 37th Carole Nash International Classic Motorcycle Show with Bonhams Auction House.
1959 Ducati 175cc F3 Production Racing Motorcycle
This model features a lower and lighter frame than the Marianna, the model it superseded. Amadoro brakes have also been installed on this model, while the twin-cam motor helped it race exceptionally well.
It is believed that fewer than 100 F3s were made across 125cc, 175cc and 250cc – with only a dozen or so 175cc models ever produced.
Raced by Sonny Angel of San Diego, California, this bike was later restored and bought by Hollywood photographer Guy Webster. It is now up for sale and could fetch anywhere up to £80,000 at the 37th Carole Nash International Classic Motorcycle Show with Bohnams Auction House.
With an estimated value of £50,000, this custom bike is named after a mythical beast said to roam the Midlands hills where it was lovingly put together.
And there’s no doubt it’s a beast. Based on a chassis from Destiny Cycles, this 350kg, five-speed monster has a 103” wheelbase and a 100HP engine giving it some serious clout.
Harley-Davidson ‘Miller Time’ Scrambler
Scramblers have never been more popular, and this colourful model is sure to generate attention.
Built by Shaw Speed & Custom, the custom wing of Shaw Harley-Davidson, on the chassis of a Harley-Davidson Sportster, the Scrambler has a 1,200cc engine and eye-catching flashes of blue, red and yellow.
After taking the Sportster chassis back to basic, a longer swingarm was added, along with a new rear end, with mini mudguard and custom support rods to support the lights.
Harley-Davidson suspension was changed for an Ohlins race front end and Ohlins shocks. Many original parts were replaced with custom bolt-ons, and then the whole thing was given a paint job to die for. Not least the wheels, which have been laboriously customised with the Miller Time graphic. Don’t forget to check out its Replica 4 Leading Shoe brakes, too!
As well as the bikes, you can also get your hands on a free copy of the 2017 Carole Nash calendar at our stand.
