Hitchcock's in England has just unloaded (5) 40 foot containers of bike and parts from the USA. Some of the haul is posted on their website already. The video is not too long to watch and there are some neat bikes. Ny favorite is the Norton with Tracy bodywork.
Hitchcock's Huge Haul from USA
I have dealt with Hitchcock's for years now for my RE Interceptor. Very dependable, knowledgeable, helpful, fair and even affordable prices. Not so sure about some of the prices they're placing on the bikes/partial bikes already listed, but here's a link to that page...

Who had all of that inventory that they bought up, and I guess no U.S. buyers/dealers were interested???

The video said it came from 2 sources, so I'm guessing the Raber's auction and British Only.

Are there many big British parts dealers left in the US and Canada??

I don't know of any. But until this year haven't sought many used parts. There are some vendors on ebay but their stock seems limited. And I might add, not many are selling at reasonable prices.

Baxter's has been sending 2 or more containers a year for as long as I can remember. That's where the market is

i'm curious about the girder forked BSA, I wonder what it is? I should probably freeze and expand the images.

Send Hitchcock's a request for info/price. They have always answered my questions and requests.

I keep having this recurring dream of purchasing a large lot like that, then selling it off and making some kind of profit while providing enthusiasts like us with plenty of spares, then I remember the person who is selling that stuff already tried that.....
