H&H Classics to offer an unused 1977 motorbike won with a £2 raffle ticket
Never registered and in unused “as new” condition, the bike is expected to sell for circa 10,000 - 12,000 at auction with H&H Classics on April 7th at the National Motorcycle Museum.



LONDON.- Long-time biker and bike enthusiast Sally Peace, 60, bought a raffle ticket for 2.00 to win a brand new 1977 motorbike when she visited the National Motorcycle Museum in the summer 2019 and to her delight found in October that she had won the draw for the Triumph T160V Trident.

A keen motorbike rider since 1977 when she fell in love with a Suzuki, her winning raffle ticket was one of thousands sold by the National Motorcycle Museum to win the Triumph. Based in mid Wales Sally, a health carer, is struggling with health issues herself and needs an operation which the sale of the Triumph will fund. She says she was overjoyed when she heard that she had won the bike and very sad to be selling it, but her health issues make it a priority.

Never registered and in unused “as new” condition, the bike is expected to sell for circa 10,000 - 12,000 at auction with H&H Classics on April 7th at the National Motorcycle Museum.

Sally says it has been a tough decision to sell the bike so soon but ill health means that she cannot use the motorbike and so approached H&H to sell it at auction.

The bike was bought by Museum founder, the late Roy Richards, in the 1980’s from a bike dealer and was displayed in the museum up to the 2000’s when it was replaced by another similar model.

The museum decided to put the bike into their popular “Classic Bike Raffle”, and it proved to be one of the most popular bikes ever raffled.

Mark Bryan of H&H Classics comments: “Even at the top estimate of 12,000 this bike is a steal, given that it is in perfect brand new condition and is a real collector’s piece.”
