Towards the end of its troubled existence, and following the end of Norton Commando production in 1977, Norton Villiers Triumph (NVT) began to explore other avenues of business. Development of the promising Norton Rotary continued, while at the other end of the performance scale the company offered the Motori Morini-powered Easy Rider moped, though a two-wheeler further from the spirit of the eponymous American ‘road movie’ could scarcely be imagined. Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper just wouldn’t have been anything like so convincing riding a pair of these. Like the company’s Yamaha-engined 125/175cc trail bikes, the Easy Rider was marketed under both the NVT and BSA brand names. Offered for restoration, this BSA-badged example currently displays a total of 8,217 miles on the odometer. There are no documents with this Lot, which is offered without reserve.

Buyers' Premium and Charges

Like the vast majority of auctioneers Bonhams charge what is known as a Buyer's Premium. Buyer's Premium on all Automobilia lots will adhere to Bonhams group policy:

25% up to £50,000 of hammer price,
20% from £50,001 to £1,000,000 of hammer price,
and 12% on the balance thereafter. This applies to each lot purchased and is subject to VAT.

For Motor Cars and Motorcycles a 15% Buyer's Premium is payable on the first £50,000 of the final Hammer Price of each Lot, and 12% on any amount by which the Hammer Price exceeds £50,000. VAT at the standard rate is payable on the Premium by all Buyers, unless otherwise stated.

Some lots may be subject to VAT on the Hammer Price. These lots will be clearly marked with the relevant symbol printed beside the lot number in the catalogue.
