John Searle

Expert Motorcycles & Mopeds

Classic motorcycles from the 1930s represent a beautiful period.

John Searle

John Searle was 18 years old when he bought his first motorcycle: a BMW R60. At the time, the R60 was already a classic, but he still rides it regularly. His love for classic motorcycles has never decreased, not even when John Searle filmed and directed TV shows about the newest models. In addition, he kept participating in classic motorcycle races throughout Europe, sometimes with his wife in the sidecar. The motorcycles that John Searle uses for these races are meticulously maintained in his own workshop, where he has lately also been carrying out his work for Catawiki. Surrounded by his passion, as it should be.

For his auctions, John Searle finds it important to check the details of the submitted motorcycles thoroughly. If, for instance, the serial numbers of the frame and the motorcycle match, you are certain this is a completely authentic motorcycle that would do well at auction. Furthermore, John Searle has gained important insights into people's behaviour through his years of experience. He therefore gladly talks to buyers, sellers and enthusiasts that share his passion.
