The highly original Thruxton was discovered in Norfolk. It sold for £20,000.

Mark Bryan, a motorcycle specialist at H&H, said: “We are delighted with this result and this new record.

There were no Brexit nerves evident, and 85% of the motorcycles sold.”

He commented further: “It is super rare to find a bike in this condition, which is not even on the Velocette Owners’ Club register.

This motorcycle is a very real and rare discovery.”
