A 1969 Honda Z50A monkey bike that was once owned by Beatles legend John Lennon sold for a staggering £57,500 last weekend, making it the most expensive monkey bike in the world.

The bike, which Lennon owned in the 1960s and was used by him for riding around his Tittenhurst Park estate in Surrey, has changed hands a few times but its last owner, John Harington, owned it for 47-years. Carrying the registration plate XUC 91H, Lennon was famously pictured riding it with his son, Julian, on the back.

Mark Bryan, Head of Sales for H&H Classics Motorcycle Department, said: “Naturally we were thrilled to be entrusted with the marketing and sale of this bike, given its extraordinary provenance. So to achieve this price is hugely satisfying.”
