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.’
