People like ‘barn finds’. They stir the imagination and, more importantly, frequently present collectors with a prime restoration project – a machine that has stood untouched for years, stands a good chance of being especially original. Such was the 1954 Vincent Series C V-twin Rapide in H&H’s inaugural Duxford Imperial War Museum motorcycle and bicycle sale of October 10. Though apparently only lacking the dynamo drive cover, it nevertheless was in need of a total restoration, yet was so stunningly original and unmolested that it made £18,700!

Arguably the greatest team in Grand Prix racing history, MV Agusta won everything that was worth winning at world level from the early 1950s to the late 1960s and beyond. Machines raced by the legendary Italian works team are among the rarest and most desirable racing motorcycles ever made. All surviving examples are held either in museums or private collections and only extremely rarely is one ever offered for public sale. Thus Bonhams is delighted to be able to offer this machine - frame number '1104', engine number '4' - an example of the famous four-cylinder 'fire engines' that brought MV Agusta 139 victories and 16 World Championships in Grand Prix racing's premier 500cc class, together with a further 76 wins and 9 Championships in the 350cc category.
