Lot 334 - 1937 OK Supreme 250cc Flying Cloud Super Sports
|Estimate||£5,000 - £8,000|
The OK Supreme Motorcycle Company produced high quality machines that usually relied on proprietary power units, typically from JAP, although they did on occasion produce their own engines including the famous overhead cam 'Lighthouse' single derived from their 1928 TT winning design. During the late 1930s, the factory offered a JAP powered 245cc single in a number of forms from a standard utility model to a super-sport variant with differences in specification dictated by each model's intended role, all bearing the name Flying Cloud. OK Supreme ceased production in 1939; utilising their engineering skills to assist in the war and deciding not to continue trading afterwards.
This handsome OK Supreme motorcycle was manufactured in 1937 and appears to have had fairly limited use. Attractively presented in the correct red paintwork and fitted with alloy rims, the mechanical condition of this motorcycle is unknown, following a lengthy period of inactivity when it was in a museum. Supplied with a V5 registration document, together with the original buff log book, this is a true piece of unmolested history that rarely comes to the market.
