My Classic Motorcycle Valuation Experience

Classic Motorcycle Valuations is owned by John Glynn. Active in the UK motor trade for more than thirty years and a professional valuer for the majority of that time, I value hundreds of motorcycles every year. My valuation experience includes:

  • Ten years as Classic Car and Consumer Car & Motorcycle Editor for Glass’s Guide: the UK motor trade’s price ‘bible’
  • Assistant Editor on Glass’s Guide to Motorcycle Values
  • Creator of the original ‘We Buy Any Car’ online valuations dataset
  • Creator of Motorcycle Part Exchange Values: as seen on motorcycle manufacturer websites
  • Experienced expert witness in court, working for insurers, solicitors, Trading Standards and private clients
  • Professional freelance journalist for over ten years
  • An acknowledged motor trade expert journalist, writing for Autocar, Top Gear, MSN Cars etc
  • Author of countless magazine ‘Buyers Guides’
  • Five years in professional retail and fleet car purchasing
  • Over twenty years in car auction purchase and disposal
  • Trade financial services background with UK banks

My motorcycling history includes:

  • Motorcyclist and classic bike enthusiast for more than twenty years
  • Experienced bike buyer and restorer
  • A personal collection/investment portfolio including many classic motorcycles and several significant police motorcycles

My expertise in classic car and motorcycle valuations is underpinned by extensive market intelligence. Three decades of valuation experience in motor trade and insurance services gives me the credibility that matters when insurance claims go to dispute or end up in court.  The scope of data I have overseen means that I have supplied hundreds of thousands of vehicle valuations to thousands of highly critical users in the course of my career. This is priceless experience.
