Classic Car Auctions says:

A smart little Bubble emerging from long term ownership.......


  • The more powerful 300cc model assembled in Brighton for the UK-market
  • Built from new in left-hand drive avoiding the need for (rhd) balance weight
  • The 300 (Moto Coupe De Luxe) benefitted from sliding windows. 13bhp and 53 mph
  • Recently recommissioned after period of dry storage
  • Values of these great little cars have continued to rise and at today's guide, 64 FTU seems good value
