I thought someone might be interested in this. Lots of old memorabilia - racing helmets, leathers, and at the end some spares
Some of the stuff looks as if it going at decent prices.

Crikey someone had a thing about helmets. It appears he had hundreds - must have had a huge shed. Ah, it all comes from a museum.
A SMBH pudding basin one went for less than a grand - compared to £5k for a King Kenny!

I think that's more representative of spending power combined with hero adoration in the UK vs US, rather than an assessment of excellence in the sport...

Many thanks for this post! Sadly I only saw it too late to get involved in the auction. I spent quite some time going through the catalogue listings. If you , or someone you know, bought lots 144, 242, or 270 please contact me as I collect Toni Elias memorabilia and would like to add to what I have!

Any ideas why these lots, and a previous significant quantity of motorcycles, we’re for sale?
I can’t image that simply closing the ‘museum’ was the reason.
Regards to all.

Please don't think I am some kind of auction nut - I never been to one, bid on one or really taken any interest in them before, but there is another one coming up very soon - see here https://www.silverst...2022/2022-05-28 which might be of interest to someone.
Lots 361, 365, 368 - 372 and 403 look interesting for anyone looking for an old racer (mostly 2 strokes).

Nice little TZ125, however it seems its' last outing was on its' side. Still well worth a bid.
