Chris Routledge, managing partner at Coys, said: “We are back in the international collector motorcycle market, setting two world records and selling motorcycles to all four corners of the world, including some household name celebrity buyers. I’m really excited about our return to motorcycles and we have now secured a fantastic single owner collection for auction in autumn.”
