A PRIVATE COLLECTION of 14 motorcycles ranging from a 50cc Jawa moped to a 1983 BMW R100 will go under the hammer in North Yorkshire in June.
Mathewsons in Pickering is selling the collection of Peter Hall, a local motor trader from Robin Hood’s Bay.
Pride of place in the sale on Saturday, June 3 is a 1924 Rex-Acme 8 HP Combination. Peter spent his spare time either working on his vehicles or competing in local and national trials. He would often load a trials bike into an old London taxi, drive many miles to the venue, sleep overnight in the cab and compete the following day.

The Rex-Acme is attached to a sidecar hand-made by a local joiner. The combo was acquired some 50 years ago in a swap which appeared a little short on the part of the then owner – so Peter secured the deal by adding a cash injection of £1. Also on offer are a 350cc CCM competition trials bike and a 1925 Scott Squirrel.
The vehicle auction starts at 1pm, with vehicle memorabilia on sale from 10am.
