Shannons is hosting an online auction from May 20 to June 3, with a number of collectable motorcycles on the block.

Headlining the event is a 1960 Harley-Davidson FL Duo Glide, which reportedly sat in a shed in Queensland for 37 years.

The FL Duo Glide replaced the Hydra-Glide as the flagship tourer, introducing key updates like coilover rear suspension and a proper swingarm.

Shannons says that the bike was bought from a deceased estate, and has since recorded mechanical and cosmetic updates totalling approximately $2500.

The Harley-Davidson FL Duo Glide is listed with no reserve, and is expected to sell in the $20,000 – $24,000 range.

A number of British motorcycles will be auctioned, including a 1961 Triumph T120R Bonneville. The bike was restored in Melbourne several years ago, and is finished in the correct Sky Blue and Silver Sheen colour scheme.

As it had its odometer reset at time of restoration, the bike shows just 285 miles on the clock.

The T120R Bonneville is also listed without a reserve, and is expected to sell from between $15,000 – $18,000.

Also presented in the online auction is a Velocette Sportsman that was restored in 1994. The 500cc motorcycle is one of just 40 made available for Australia, and has had just one owner since it was originally purchased in 1970.

With just 2983 miles on its odometer, Shannons expects it to sell in the range of $18,000 – $22,000.

Other classic British bikes for sale include two restored pre-war BSA models – a 1935 Model W357 and a 1937 M20 – which are both estimated to sell for around $15,000 with no reserve.

A 1974 Norton Commando 850 MkII, finished in black with gold accents, is expected to sell for $12,000 – $16,000, and finally, a 1978 Honda CT70 mini trail bike is being offered with no reserve and expected to bring in $3500 – $4500.
