John Lennon's 1969 Honda Z50A

Motorcycle history was made by H&H Classics at the National Motorcycle Museum in England on March 4, 2018, when the company sold two iconic bikes for new world record prices.

H&H’s lineup of 170 bikes included a number of gems that had the place heaving despite a week of atrocious weather that had kept people at home. The biking fraternity turned up in strength to bid for John Lennon’s 1969 HondaZ50A "Monkeybike" which made $79,640.

There was huge excitement for the John Lennon Monkey-Trail bike XUC 91H when its turn came to go under the hammer.

John Lennon used the bike as a fun way of getting around his Tittenhurst Park estate in Surrey, where he lived from 1969 to 1971. Prior to the sale H&H Classics estimated that the bike would sell for $40,000 plus. It has now become the highest priced Monkeybike sold at auction.



Mark Bryan, Head of Sales for H&H Classics Motorcycle Department, said: “Naturally we were thrilled to be entrusted with the marketing and sale of this bike, given its extraordinary provenance. So to achieve this price is hugely satisfying.”
