Great selection of Vehicles, Thanks for posting Ian. The star of the show for me is lurking behind the little NSU prinz car and it is anything but little ! A marvellous Münch 4 1200 TTS Motorcycle, 1973 ish I wager. Its built like a panzer tank probably double the weight of the NSU prinz in front of it. One of the very first manufacturers to implement fuel injection into bikes.
Its worth a biker fortune, of that there is no doubt at all. Probably IRO £250,000+ for that mint example. I would love to try one of those out.
Only ever seen one Münch 1200 in the flesh so to speak when visiting the IOM around 1995/6, we all oogled at it,the quality and engineering is amazing. It made my Triumph Trophy 1200 (which was a fair old lump of a bike) look like a moped.

A couple of Million Euros worth at the very least in that Munch Bike collection. The black/dark silver bike under the (Munch Mammut) sign is a later Munch 2000cc not many of those about, the vintage works racing examples on the right are ultra rare. The various production petrol tanks in the rack will be a few thousand euros each bare minimum. Like Zundapps, Munches have an almost cult fan base a bit like Vintage Ferrari or Alfa Romeo car fans..they are insane..and very rich to boot, they will pay anything for the right machine. Most go for sale at high end auctions & really mint ones like these are highly sought after. Thanks again for posting Ian.
