Beautiful bikes at Belgian auction!

A stunning array of vintage, classic and modern classic machinery is part of an exhibition and auction in Belgium this weekend.

More than 50 exotic machines help make up the 62 lots in this once-in-a-lifetime motorcycle and motorcycle memorabilia auction. These bikes represent the cream of classic and vintage motorcycling, ranging from a 1920 Francis-Barnett 50cc, through to a full-power Yamaha VMAX from 2001.

For CMM readers the cream of the collection will be the 1960s-1980s machines. These include a Honda CB450 Blackbomber, CL77, a 1975 Gold Wing, a Monkey Bike, a sweet-looking C110 from 1963, a 1976 CB750 K6 (as well as a CB750 K2 from 1975) and a 1971 CB500 Four K1. Representing Kawasaki in the collection are a Kawasaki Z1A from 1974, a 1967 Samurai A1SS, 1974 H2 and 1971 H1. Other two-strokes include a Suzuki GT750 from ’72.
