Once again it has been a complete pleasure working with the current custodians of these remarkable machines. Refer Lot 54. The 1930s are also well represented with the iconic OK Supreme bronze head race bike (refer Lot 61) gracing the catalogue. which offers its original purchase receipt and three generations of family history. The cars in the catalogue were selected on the basis of romantic histories. I am sure it offers to many (including our visitors from across the commonwealth) lovely memories of growing up in Mum’s car. The same might be said of the 1960’s Holden FB Ute which celebrates Australia’s car industry coming into its own. We look forward to sharing a fine Moa beer or a dram of whisky with you on the night. The selection of veteran Triumph’s is also remarkable as they hail from one of New Zealand’s better known and long term restorers. Although the 1969 Morris 1300 (refer Lot 81) may not have the pedigree of the immaculate 1961 SL190 Roadster (refer Lot 75). They reflect period innovation and the 20th century’s fascination with combustion technology and its application to spirited travel and intrepid velocity. On the rarity front. Webb’s is also proud to be offering the late Don Gordon’s collection of vintage motorcycles which reflects a man who loved riding fine bikes with good people.

A personally favorite is the 1927 Douglas DT5 which is a New Zealand new example of the first purpose built speedway machine that was notoriously associated with the wonderfully talented and at time controversial speedway merchant Ms Taylor (see right). You will also note a well-defined selection of definitive post-classic’s. The collection of immaculate and exemplary late 1960’s and early 1970’s Honda’s will no doubt attract a great deal of attention. if ever. the circa-1912 Calthorpe (refer Lot 45) is thought to be one of only four in existence in the world.

Concentrating on upgrading its clutch and
gear-changing technology, Triumph continued
to improve its motorcycles between 1910 and
1915. A variable pulley belt drive, which offered
a selection of gear ratios, was introduced in
1908. In 1911, a simple rear hub clutch was

target the female rider with a machine made

129 pounds. With its two-speed gearbox and

clutchless operation, the ‘Baby T’ offered
considerable value. A top seller, the Baby
