Local auction house Cuttlestones has a rather quirky collection set to come under the hammer in its Wednesday 11th July Home & Antiques sale – in the form of over 30 vintage bicycles.
Mainly hailing from the single, private collection of a late gentleman with a passion for buying and restoring old bicycles, the collection includes examples hailing from the from the 1950s right up to the present day. The collection includes bikes by a number of well-known brands, such as Raleigh, BSA, Dawes, Coventry Eagle and Pashley to name but a few. In terms of the styles of bikes represented bidders will find shoppers, all terrain, racers – and even a modern ‘Penny Farthing’!
Auctioneer – and keen cyclist – Dave Eglington says:
“This is a cracking collection of bikes, including some real classics and to see them in such great condition is fantastic. The gentleman who amassed the collection was clearly an enthusiast and had an eye for something a little different. There’s something for everyone here – from those searching for a bike to take on next year’s Eroica Britannia or they’re keen to relive the past and buy a bike they owned back in the day.”
The collection will go under the hammer at Cuttlestones Home & Antiques auction on Wednesday, 11th July at its Penkridge sale room. Viewing is from 10am – 7pm the day prior to - and also on the morning of - the sale itself. A full illustrated catalogue will be available online from Friday 6th July at www.cuttlestones.co.uk
