‘Hinckley Spitfire’ in Aerobility auction

Triumph Bonneville

A custom-made, one-of-a-kind Triumph motorcycle built with metal taken from a Spitfire restoration is up for auction.

The unique work of art is currently open for bids with the auction concluding on Saturday, 27 November 2021 at Mercedes Benz World in Weybridge.

The bespoke T120 motorcycle has a 1200cc engine and unique coachwork which reflects the camouflage pattern of the Spitfire with a nod to the roundels of the RAF.

All proceeds including auction commissions will be donated in support of disabled flying charity, Aerobility. The national charity works to provide flying experiences for all disabled people, giving them an unparalleled sense of freedom and achievement.

Aerobility CEO, Mike Miller-Smith, said, “This motorcycle is a complete work of art and we are thrilled that the proceeds are being donated to our amazing charity.

“Both Triumph and the Spitfire are legendary British icons synonymous with freedom and overcoming adversity, which is exactly what we deliver for our flyers every day, so it could not be more of a perfect match.

“We are extremely grateful to Triumph for donating the bike to Historics Auctioneers making sure every penny raised goes to support disabled flying.

“We hope this unique machine goes to someone who is truly going to love and care for it – and have the best time riding it!”

Bids can be placed online, by phone or via commission bid here.
