Branston auction

Post  John Wakefield on Thu Aug 31, 2017 10:14 pm

Looks like there may be some bargains to be had, the auction is not on line & the auctioneers may not be able to accept telephone bids as the mobile phone signal is bad in that area. So bidders must attend to bid. Most of the lots are horticultural/agricultural orientated so it will mainly attract stationary engine types. The auctioneers themselves are just a local firm normally dealing in antiques, farming equipment & livestock. They have not produced a very attractive catalog, with pics of only some lots included., and these are low resolution. No reserves either.

Clash of dates

Post  piston 197 on Sat Sep 02, 2017 6:20 am

Unfortunately it is the same date as the "South Midlands Autojumble" ( 9th Sept) that I have been involved with the running of for the last 26 years, so won't be there, It would certainly have been a sale I would have attended otherwise !

Some high prices achieved apparently with a big crowd there. The Greeves East Coaster went for 1650 the WD Ariel for 3300 & the James Super Swift for 1100 (hammer prices plus 5% commission & VAT). I dont know what the Barnetts went for.

Prices

Post  piston 197 on Sun Sep 10, 2017 4:59 pm

If those prices are representative they look remarkably low to me ? an East Coaster for 1650 being the steal of the day, I sold mine 8 years ago for 2800 to trade ??

I think you did extremely well for 2800, presumably a restored and running one. This one was part restored & in bits. I would have estimated it at 1500. Could be another 1500 to spend if engine needs rebuilding plus paint etc. mint ones only make 3500

Cruiser 84

Post  piston 197 on Mon Sep 11, 2017 2:35 pm

Again sounds cheap to me ? but I have not seen it, not much to say really, if it is all there sounds like a bargain ? You just need to put a battery on it, and check if it goes or not, after that we can possibly help with any problems that arise, basic alternator and coil ignition so battery needed to start ( there is an Emergency position for flat battery on the ignition switch, but this quite often does not help )
