Auction Sale

We are pleased to confirm that the Auction sale is back!

The Auction, which runs in the Lounge tent on Saturday afternoon, is your chance to see what you can make from your unwanted cycling items! Anything cycle-related is welcome – from complete bikes to interesting bits…

The provisional schedule is as follows:

Saturday 24th June

  • 12.30 to 2 PM: Seller registration: book in your lots
  • 2 to 3 PM: Viewing:  potential buyers can inspect what’s on offer.
  • 3 PM: The auction starts! It is expected to finish by 5 PM.

Please note:

  • This is a cash only sale : we will have no card facilities and cannot accept cheques.
  • Any vaguely cycling related item is welcome!
  • There is a £2 fee per lot entered in the auction, payable by the seller in advance.
  • In addition, a 10% sellers fee and 10% buyers fee will apply. So if the hammer price is £100, the buyer will pay £110 and the seller will receive £90.
  • Sellers may set a reserve.
  • All proceeds from the 2015 Auction went towards the cost of staging the Rally. For 2016  we hope to revert to the traditional course of donating some or all of the proceeds to charity (details to be confirmed).

  1. Hi,

    I have just picked up a flier on the York Rally.
    I have a Sun Wasp tandem (approx 1949 I think for sale). Mostly original parts, I think, except for some brake parts. It hasn’t been ridden for 25 years. Any idea what it might fetch at auction or let me know where I could find out?
    Do I bring it along and register it on the day? Is it the sort of thing that would sell or st least add interest to the day?
    Thanks
    Roger Bilsby

    1. Hi Roger, it certainly sounds like the sort of thing that would be of great interest at the auction. There are a lot of historic cycle enthusiasts at the Rally usually. Unfortunately I’m not one of them, and have no idea what it might fetch! I’ll ask but meanwhile maybe someone at the V-CC could advise? http://www.v-cc.org.uk/ Yes, please do just bring it along and register it for the auction on the day! All the best, Peter
