1928 McEvoy-JAP 8/45hp 980cc V-twin sold at Bonhams

Last week, this little-known British classic racer sold for an
incredible £108,200 ($177,000) at the auction house Bonhams. It’s a
1928 McEvoy—powered by a 45hp 980cc overhead valve JAP V-twin, and
capable of over 100mph. Between the wars, McEvoy created
state-of-the-art racers, breaking several British and World land speed
records. The company built bespoke motorcycles for rich and discerning
customers, competing against Brough Superior. But it was a tragically
short-lived brand, lasting just five years from 1924 to 1929. The
auction house Bonhams has the full story.
