Bonhams is delighted to announce the sale of the Sant Hilari Collection, to be offered on Saturday 27 April 2019 at the two-day Spring Stafford Sale (27 & 28 April 2019), The International Classic MotorCycle Show. The entire collection will be offered without reserve.

The collection comprises more than 100 important competition machines covering marques such as: Gilera, Moto Guzzi, Kramer, Husqvarna, Maico, CZ, Jawa, Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda, KTM, Bultaco, Motobi, Ossa, MAV, SWM, Moto Villa, Beta, Anvian, DKW, Cagiva, Greeves, Tri-BSA, Sachs, Fantic, Cannondale, VOR, Aprilia, Husaberg, Kawasaki, Montesa, Macal, Ducson and Ducati.

The vendor amassed this incredible collection of machines over a lifetime spent as both a competitive rider and a works mechanic for several top-flight teams. The collection charts the development of many manufacturers including several prototype examples. Highlights of the collection include:

- 1976 Husqvarna 250 CR GP (£2,500-3,500)

James Stensel, Head of Bonhams Motorcycle Department, commented: 'We at Bonhams pride ourselves on catering to every aspect of the motorcycling world, and competition machines play an integral role within it. So many of today's best riders cut their teeth on competition motorcycles, and it is a corner of the market that is sadly often overlooked despite its passionate international fan base. We look forward to welcoming likeminded enthusiasts and collectors to our Spring Stafford Sale for another two-day motorcycle bonanza.'

In addition to the Sant Hilari Collection, the sale includes an impressive range of Veteran, Vintage, and Classic machines such as the:

Nice collection, sorry but 4000eruo for a 2004 WR450?

The auctioneer doesn't have any info on the bike, but I THINK it might be a 2wd race bike for Dakar.

Look at the lines running down the fork tube and the front hub. The US$ 5,100 - 7,700 is the auctioneers estimates. As a no reserve auction, it might go for a lot less. I'm sure they know more about that value than at least I do. Supply & demand will rule the day no doubt.

Not one of those bikes is special, othere than low miles and originality

Accept for the yamaha, they are devoid of proper set up for actual riding, and are just trailer queens. 

Why.

+1.  Nice enough bikes, but from what I see and know about '70's and beyond models, they are well beyond their model year collectible prime.

If you previewed over 100 bikes, mad props for patience and thoroughness!

That's very interesting.  I bet that it's a real trip first time on a 2wd bike.
