Bonhams Spring Stafford Sale will include 12 motorcycles belonging to the pair with a combined guide price of up to PS66,000. The most expensive items include a PS12,000 Yamaha SR400 and PS18,000 Norton Commando.

May said: "Just because I'm unemployed now doesn't mean I have to get rid of everything.I was going to sell these bikes anyway."

Hammond, originally from Solihull, added: "As a serious collector of motorcycles, it's important to review one's stable regularly, and the Bonhams Stafford sale is the ideal opportunity to move bikes on."

The pair have declined to sign new deals to present the next series of BBC2's Top Gear after Jeremy Clarkson was sacked for punching producer Oisin Tymon Bonhams Spring Stafford Sale takes place at the International Classic MotorCycle Show, Staffordshire County Showground, on April 26.
