Original "Golden Greats" Jawa - Bike No. 1 - Reduced now £3,850.00 NOW SOLD

 

Briggo decided that he would form a troupe of World and National Champions, but unlike Golf or Tennis, Motorcycles were needed, he wanted that all Riders have the same chance of success with equal machines. He decided the best bike was the 2 Valve Jawa machine. All had the best engines and most importantly straight frames. The "Golden Greats" were a massive success. The meetings included Riders who had between them won more than 50 FIM World Speedway Championships, Stadiums were packed in England, Denmark, Poland, Germany and Scotland.

 

Without a doubt there is NO racing motorcycles in the WORLD that have been raced by so many official FIM World Champions.

 

Whilst care has been taken to establish year of machine, they still could not be 100% correct. The Engine No. dates this machine from 1978. Machine has been standing for quite some time, the engine turns freely, but if you were going to race, it would be prudent to check-out the big-end.

 

This bike is "Golden Greats" Bike No. 1.

 

Not a Concours Machine but a piece of Speedway History with provenance.

 

Bike will be supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity.

 

Delivery can be arranged.

Early 1970s Wernecke DR500 ex Manfred Poschenrieder  -  £6,000.00 (or very near offer)

 

This Speedway Bike is a very rare machine indeed. Not many of the Wernecke DR500 engines were built. The frame resembles a Jawa 2 Valve but has a Centre Carburettor set-up. This design is way before Jawa introduced the Centre Carb Frame when they launched the Centre Carb 895 Engine in 1978.

 

The engine was developed by a University Professor in Germany and uses lots of Magnesium Parts. It is approximately 20 lbs lighter than the JAP 4B Engine, that it was designed to beat. Looks very similar to a Vincent Comet Engine. I will add further information in due course, when I have translated it.

 

Delivery can be arranged.

Early 1970s Maely Speedway Bike  -  £6,000.00 (or very near offer)

 

A very rare Speedway Bike built by Ken Maely of America. Ken was famous for making the Steel Shoes for Riders in the USA. But he was also famous for designing and building Engines and Frames resulting in complete bikes.

 

This Maely is from approximately 1974. It is a 4 Valve Engine and has the Primary Drive (in this case a Belt Drive) is on the right side of the engine. It is adorned with USA livery Glitter Guards. I haven't been able to identify whos bike it may of been but I am sure there must be some photos around somewhere to give a clue.

 

I am aware that there is a Maely in the Ian Patterson Collection "Cinder to Shale" but don't know of anymore in this country.

 

Delivery can be arranged.

1958 Rotrax JAP Speedway Bike for Restoration  -  ex Bryan Elliott of Leicester Hunters, Coventry Bees and Halifax.   Offers over £4,500.00.

1958 (Mk. 1) Rotrax Framed JAP 4B 500cc.

The bike is in it's 'As Found' condition. Decided to sell due to having too many projects to do.

This bike was originally owned by Bryan 'Chirpy' Elliott who rode for Leicester Hunters Speedway Team from 1955 to 1962, the Coventry Bees during 1963 and 1964 and then the Halifax Dukes in 1965. In 1960 Bryan rode in the World Individual Speedway Final at Wembley, probably on this bike but failed to gain any points. He emigrated to Australia at the end of the 1965 Season where he continued to race, including appearances for the British Lions Speedway Touring Team on several occasions. He sold his bikes before leaving and this one had been stored in a garage since. I purchased it a few years ago and it was the first time it had moved for nearly 50 years.

 

Ripe for restoration, just as you want to find them, with all the right bits on it.. The Barrel is an after market Wellworthy Alloy Barrel.

The Engine is seized due to being stood for around 50 years and the Drive Chains are missing.

 

The bike comes with a 1960 World Individual Speedway Final Programme from Wembley, when Bryan rode in the final but failed to score any points (Final was won by Ove Fundin). In addition some photographs of Bryan and 3 Programmes from Leicester, Coventry and Halifax.

 

A great piece of Speedway History.

Late 1980s Jawa Longtrack Diamond  -  £125.00

 

Late 1980s Jawa Longtrack Diamond.

 

I bought this Diamond new from Czechoslovakia as it was advertised as an Jawa 897 Speedway Diamond. It was painted to start with but I wanted a Chrome one. I stripped the paint and got it Chromed. Came to fit it and it would not fit, not impressed. Therefore surplus to requirements at half the price of what it cost me.

 

Grab a bargain.

 

Postage at Cost or welcome to Pick-up.

Classic Speedway and Grasstrack Stickers

The following Stickers have mostly been digitally re-mastered using originals found on 1970s / 1980s Speedway and Grasstrack Bikes as templates. These have been done whilst carrying out restoration / refurbishment of bikes, to retain originality as near as possible.

 

Many of the Companies are no longer trading or no longer offer the period stickers. 

 

I am now offering these for sale to fellow Restorers and Collectors of Classic Speedway and Grasstrack / Longtrack Bikes.

 

Please note that the colours on the stickers are vivid, as the originals, the quality of my photographs, does not show this.

 

Postage to UK addresses is £1.50.

 

Postage Worldwide available on request.
