Vintage Motor Cycle

Vintage Motor Cycle

Auction bidders have chance to buy motorbike that escaped Nazi clutches - (thecourier.co.uk) A vintage motorcycle once stashed to avoid its seizure by the Nazis will be auctioned in Perthshire at the weekend.

The Indian Scout was delivered to a thriving Copenhagen in the 1920s where its proud owner mixed with the city’s cultural elite at the fashionable Palace Hotel, home to the Grand Theatre.

Eighteen years later, this Indian’s existence was to be changed dramatically when it was hidden away by its owner for the duration of the Second World War, as German forces occupied the country.

It re-emerged following the German withdrawal at the end of May 1945 and in the mid-1950s became the property of a Danish motorcycle racer.

He used it to compete in events across Europe at the same time as New Zealander Burt Munro was using his Indian Scout to set land speed records on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.

Its current Danish owner purchased the machine in 1997 and has restored it to the model that will go under the hammer at Morris Leslie’s latest classic vehicle auction on Saturday.

It joins a line-up of classic marques with a significant heritage attached to them, including two very rare Triumph TR250s.

Built between 1967 and 1968, there were only 8,480 examples ever built — all for the American market — and just 600 remain worldwide today.

Auction-goers willing to bid in the region of £25,000 to £30,000 will therefore join the ranks of a relatively exclusive club.

The auction, which takes place on the historic RAF Errol airfield, will also include many other interesting vehicles such as a 1968 Jaguar E Type Series II 4.2 automatic, a Morris Isis manufactured in 1935 and a 1962 Foden S21 Flatbed.

An old war hero will also be turning up in the form of a 1945 Harley Davidson 750 WLC Liberator.
