In the Charterhouse June 29 specialist auction of classic and vintage motorcycles is a rare 1920s French San-Sou-Pap motorcycle.
“We have been asked to auction a vast variety of classic and vintage motorbikes in the auction,” said Richard Bromell. “There are British, American, German, Italian and Japanese bikes but this chic French San-Sou-Pap ticks all the boxes for me.”
San-Sou-Pap motorcycles were made in France from 1923 to 1936.
Originally, the company made only two-strokes – San-Sou-Pap means ‘without valves’.
The 1929 San-Sou-Pap at Charterhouse is believed to be a unique bike and is fitted with a Swiss made 500cc MAG four-stroke engine.
It was bought by the owner in 2012.
He undertook a fastidious nut and bolt restoration over the next two years but has not ridden it after finishing the restoration.
Entered into the Charterhouse auction, being held at the Haynes International Motor Museum at Sparkford on Wednesday June 29, it is estimated at £15,000-17,000.
Viewing is on Tuesday 28th or you can see all the lots and bid live on charterhouse-auction.com
