We are very excited to reveal 3 incredible machines arriving in our workshops very soon. First up we have our beautiful 1953 Francis Barnett Rigid
Congratulations to Mike Parsons, who’s just taken delivery his 1953 Francis Barnett Rigid Body Trials Motorcycle. Mike’s winning ticket was number 130.
Mauro drove all the way to Mike today to drop off the bike, which was received by a beaming Mike who quickly proceeded to take it for a test drive around his barn.
Mauro is carrying out a thorough Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) on our classic bike before it makes its way down to the south coast to winner, Mike Parsons tomorrow. We do thorough PDI’s on all our competition vehicles to make sure they’re running perfectly before they meet their new owners.
We had an exciting live draw with two winners announced, Mike Parsons won our 1953 Francis Barnett Trials Motorcycle with ticket number 130 and Iain Baker won our 1964 Land Rover Series IIA with ticket number 1248. A big congratulations to both winners, we hope you love them as much as we do!
We had some minor technical issues thanks to the weather but we appreciate everyone’s paitence as we continue to improve our live streams.
We’re delighted to recieve this fantastic video from Matt Wild, videographer, who shot alongside Lydia Harper a few weeks ago for a project with Lydia’s creative agency Parc Ferme and Deus Ex Machina.
With Hannah Coe as the model and Alice Harper as the assistant, the team created these stunning visuals with the help of Bridge Classic Car’s selection of motors.
Check out the video on YouTube below:

Photographer Lydia Harper and her team came down to photograph our 1953 Francis Barnett Trials Bike last week for a new campaign with Deus Ex Machina. Her team, part of her own creative agency, Parc Fermé, included Matt Wild (Videographer), Alice Harper (Assistant) and Hannah Coe (model) who all worked to create the stunning visuals below.
We’re waiting in great anticipation to see Matt’s video.
Our 1953 Francis Barnett Rigid Body Trials motorbike was having some issues starting, so we had John take a look who quickly diagnosed the issue as dirt and debris getting caught in the carburettor.
Last night our marketing team and visual gurus, Ellie and Freddie headed over to Bentwaters to shoot some photos and videos with Charlotte. The overcast evening sky made the perfect moody backdrop to shoot our classic 1953 Francis Barnett against.
We think Charlotte’s getting the hang of this bike…
This 1953 Francis Barnet Rigid Body motorbike was delivered to us yesterday. For those with keen ears, you may have heard Craig mention an upcoming bike to the competitions. Stay tuned to find out where this bike is heading.
Although Craig managed to briefly start it up, it needs some attention to get it running smoothly. It currently has ten-year-old fuel sat in the tank that needs replacing and the electrics need a small amount of re-wiring. Other than these small amends, it’s good to go!
We are very excited to reveal 3 incredible machines arriving in our workshops very soon.
First up we have our beautiful 1953 Francis Barnett Rigid Trials bike. A perfect addition to the Hangar to sit beside our 1961 Francis Barnett Trials 85. The current owner has kindly taken some photographs of the bike prior to us taking ownership…just to keep us excited!
We are planning to collect later this week so we will have more images to share with you very soon.
A very rare find is our 1962 BMW Isetta ‘Bubble Car’. Purchased some time ago for a family member the car was very rarely used by the current owner and therefore has been offered to Bridge Classic Cars to find a new home.
And our 2000 BMW Z3 3.0 Widebody. A fantastic colour combination of Silver with two-tone red and black leather interior. The car has covered just 27,000 miles from new and it’s one to enjoy now knowing that it will be future collectible. Prices of the Z3 are already starting to rise and the desirable 3.0 litre engine is no doubt one to keep hold of for as long as you can.
