Welcome to the private (non-trade) sale of my Hesketh paraphernalia, all as listed below


This section is a temporary addition to the website for the sole purpose of private (non-trade) disposal of various bits and pieces relating to Hesketh Motorcycles - plus just the one bit of Harley Davidson merchandise. 

For anyone not familiar with this rare marque, Hesketh details can be found widely in the net. Wikipedia or the Hesketh Owners Club are good places to start if you pop them into your browser. I don’t suppose there are many who have never heard of Harley Davidson so I’ll leave that one with you.


I bought my first Hesketh in 2003 and most of these items quickly followed so have been in my possession for a long time but are now surplus to requirements following the recent sale of the bike itself. The clothing belongs to me and my other half (see Sparrow, this site and images of Yours Truly throughout to get an idea of the sizes they will fit) and has not been worn by anyone else. Items will, of course, most likely be of interest to Hesketh enthusiasts but are offered to anyone on a first-come first-served basis. 


Terms and conditions:

Items are described in good faith and to the best of my knowledge, and are sold ‘as seen here’ with no guarantees. Caveat Emptor: Please make sure before you purchase, as I cannot offer returns or refunds. There may be more than one example of some items; each is offered as individual lots as described. I will be happy to provide further information where I can, and to send larger images by email to assist in your deliberations; see the contact section for how to get in touch. 


Most of these goods are typically at or around - or even less than - the price I paid many years ago. Discounts, and corresponding saving on postage, are available for simultaneous purchase of two or more items. I will offer a very special deal to any serious collector or dealer who wishes to buy the lot all at once. 


Payment can be made by cheque (with time for clearance), BACS or cash on collection. Postage will be at cost, except for smaller items (eg. brochures, gear change rubbers and the like) which I will undertake free of charge. Personal collection will elicit tea and biccies or a pint on me in the Inn across the road. Your choice.


Thank you for looking.

'Hard' goods (tools and mechanicals)

Hesketh toolkit

Contains various tools and items including spark plugs, Allen keys etc, the provenance of which is unknown (they are, after all, over 25 years old) but believed largely genuine.

Offered here with tools as indicated at £150.00 plus postage at cost. SOLD

We can guarantee the authenticity, as my other half and I were involved in their production ready for the bike’s launch at the Classic Bike Show.
