La prossima Bonhams Spring Stafford Sale vedrà in asta 12 moto appartenute a Richard Hammond e James May, ex presentatori del popolare programma sui motori, Top Gear.

May e Hammond hanno commentato la vendita delle rispettive moto con il loro usuale umorismo “Solo perché ora sono disoccupato non significa che devo sbarazzarmi di tutto”, ha detto May. “Stavo per vendere queste moto comunque… e quei quadri, e la mia collezione Scalextric…”.

Hammond ha aggiunto: “Da vero collezionista, è importante sempre rivedere e aggiornare regolarmente il parco modelli e l’asta Bonhams di Stafford è l’occasione ideale per acquisirne di nuove. Ho anche una canoa e alcuni altoparlanti hi-fi Wharfedale, se qualcuno è interessato….”.

Ben Walker, di Bonhams Motorcycles International , ha detto: “Scherzi a parte, James e Richard stanno offrendo in vendita alcuni grandi pezzi delle loro collezioni, come delle Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda e Norton e ci aspettiamo che l’asta avrà un gran seguito tra i collezionisti ed i semplici appassionati”.

Bonhams Spring Stafford Sale will include 12 motorcycles belonging to Richard Hammond and James May, former presenters of the popular motoring programme, Top Gear.

May and Hammond discussed the sale of their respective motorcycles in their usual humorous manner, “Just because I’m unemployed now doesn’t mean I have to get rid of everything,” said May. “I was going to sell these bikes anyway. And those paintings, and my collection of Scalextric cars. Honest”.

Hammond added: “As a serious collector of motorcycles, it’s important to review one’s stable regularly, and the Bonhams Stafford sale is the ideal opportunity to move bikes on and possibly acquire new ones. I also have a canoe, and some Wharfedale hi-fi speakers, if anyone’s interested”.

Ben Walker, Bonhams International Head of Motorcycles, said: “Jokes aside, James and Richard are offering for sale some great motorcycles from their collections, including examples of Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda and Norton – and we expect the collection to attract a lot of attention at the upcoming Spring Stafford Sale. We’re delighted that they both elected to consign their collections with Bonhams Motorcycle Department, an agreement that originated many months ago”.
