Going, Going, Gone!
I was well chuffed last month seeing one of my earlier bike restorations come up and sell at auction. Not any old auction house either, not too shabby!
A 1974 Husqvarna CR400 Moto-Cross Mikkola replica that I did a full restoration on. It won 3rd in concours at Telford in 2012 and here I am with the man himself - four-time World Champion Heikki Mikkola with pen in hand just as he had signed the tank.
It sold for a decent chunk helped no doubt by Heikki's signature.
An auction at Alexandra Palace, London is a far cry from where it was built in a lorry back next to my main workshop here at HVMHQ, as you can see from the pics below when it was being put back together.
