A host of rare classic and modern motorcycles owned by the late George Miller are set to go under the hammer this month.

The headline of the auction is the Joey Dunlop commemorative Honda SP1 in Vimto colours.

The limited edition bike is number nine of only 26 ever produced, and has clocked just three miles.

Another rare machine going under the hammer is a 1981 Triumph Bonneville T140, one of only 125 UK models produced. The bike was dubbed the Royal Wedding Edition as it was launched to commemorate the wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles.

The Triumph has clocked 2,817 miles and looks to be in very good condition.

Mid Ulster Auctions are hosting the sale on behalf of the late George Miller’s family, which will take place on Friday 31 July, with bidding taking place online in a timed format.
