Museum Travels Jan 9-11, 2014: What Happens in Vegas…..Is a Couple of Great Motorcycle Auctions!

Last year's Mid-America Auction brought bidders this incredibly rare Pierce single. Pulled from long time storage, oil, dirt and spider webs were completely intact as was the original paint, plating and probably the seat.

Mark your calendar for January 9 – 11 and plan to attend the Las Vegas auctions produced byMidAmerica Auctions and Bonham’s Auctions. National Motorcycle Museum staff will work a display there so you can stop by and say “hi.”

Now estimated to be offering over 500 bikes in their 23rd Annual Las Vegas Antique Motorcycle Auction, MidAmerica’s display room is beyond belief. Fine early American bikes from the George Pardos Collection, European machines, most of the classic British and Japanese bikes plus a variety of race bikes will be offered for sale to the highest bidder. Vendors on hand at the sale offer bike shipping, art, restoration services, insurance and more. There’s even a Friday night indoor short track race. The Southpoint Hotel where the auction is located is also a casino with a few first rate restaurants, and is not far from The Strip. The MidAmerica Auctions website  has all the information you need to make your plans.

And Bonham’s Auctions will be back with some choice offerings as well, including over 50 motorcycles from the Wayne Pierce Collection, Dekalb, Illinois, mostly great Harley-Davidsons. You can get the location, bike listing and time of the sale at http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/21389/.

Rare bikes are offered at the Mid-America Auction. In the late 1920's Norton engineered its first overhead cam engine using a tower shaft cam drive they stuck with for decades. The 490cc CS1 shown here is a 1929 model from the third year of production.

    certainly like your web-site however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will certainly come back again.
