AUBURN, Ind. -  Auctions America by RM, a subsidiary of RM Auctions, has acquired Bator Vintage Motorcycle Auctions with a means to open a vintage division.

Classic and antique motorcycle expert Glenn Bator will lead the new division for Auctions America, starting with its first extensive bike offering at its second annual 'Auburn Fall Collector Car Auction' Sept. 1 to 4 at its Auction Park headquarters.

"The union of RM's excellent organization and customer base with Bator's loyal customers will no doubt produce world-class vintage motorcycle auctions," says Bator.

He’s known for his restorations and having organized motorcycle shows and staged auctions at such prime venues as the Barber Vintage Festival and the Daytona Classic Motorcycle Auction. Previously, he held the position of curator, restorer and general manager for the Otis Chandler Vintage Museum.

"The establishment of a dedicated motorcycle division for our company is in direct response to our clients' interests and requests," says Donnie Gould, president, Auctions America by RM. "We're thrilled to have Glenn Bator on board. His extensive industry knowledge will make Auctions America by RM events the premier venues for both buyers and sellers of classic two-wheelers."
