H&H Classics, one of the top UK auction houses, announced today that it is moving its motorcycle sales from Donington Park to the National Motorcycle Museum from June this year. The first sale at this prestigious new venue will be held on June 1st and 2nd.
H&H was founded in 1993 as a specialist auction house dedicated solely to the sale of collectors’ motorcars and motorcycles and has been trading continuously for the last twenty-two years. The company is staffed by hands-on enthusiasts with over 600 years combined experience.
This will be a long term partnership with H&H Classics holding three sales in 2017 at the Museum and a minimum of three a year in the future.

The museum is ‘Bike Central’ for anyone who loves motorcycling. We are determined to make the name H&H Classics synonymous with the very best of motorcycle auctions, so the co-operation with this wonderful atmospheric venue allows us to offer our clients the best.”
The National Motorcycle Museum is recognised as the finest and largest British motorcycle museum in the world and originally opened its doors in October 1984 with a collection of 350 motorcycles on display. The Museum collection now boasts some 1,000 plus machines, fully restored to the manufacturers original specifications.
Since opening, this magnificent centre attracts around 250,000 visitors a year. One of the biggest draws for many guests is the comprehensive cross-section of British machines, spanning the “60 Glorious Years” of motorcycle manufacturing in this country. The museum’s aim is to preserve these pieces of history for future generations to come, as a reminder of this great nations industry, engineering prowess and work ethic.

Where better to showcase the best motorcycles at auction in the UK? We look forward to a long hand happy partnership with the museum.”
