“Brand New In Box” Motorbike

It’s not often we see the term ‘brand new, still in box’ when it comes to classic motorcycles. But unbelievably, this 1977 British-built motorbike is still in it’s original shipping crate some 43 years later.

The Norton Commando was shipped to a customer in Belgium who kept it in it’s original box until the time they decided to part with it. It’s since been put up for auction and is estimated to bring in approximately £20,000-£30,000.

Although we don’t know the reasons why the owner decided never to unbox this beauty, we see it time and time again where cars and bikes that are shipped overseas don’t end up getting claimed. Usually because of import taxes and other fees, it’s an expensive game!

We love classic bikes here at Bridge, so much so we’re currently running a competition for one incredibly lucky winner to become the new owner of our fantastic 1963 BSA Trials bike. Head to the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website to enter.

On your bike!
