The NPA auction of pre-owned Harleys and metric bikes during Dealer Expo and the American V-Twin Dealer Show generated more than $1 million in combined bids.

The auction of 150 Harley-Davidson and metric motorcycles was conducted right on the show floor Saturday afternoon. The value of the individual bids and the number of retailers participating confirmed that the pre-owned sector is continuing to be a vital profit center for dealers.

It took only 90 minutes to auction off 150 vehicles for a combined total of $1.28 million. That's an average of $8,400 per auctioned vehicle.

Top bids were $27,750 for a black 2008 Honda/CAL-SC GL1800HPNM8/COBRA trike; $25,200 for a 2010 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUSE5; and $20,200 for a 2011 Harley-Davidson FLHX-103 Street Glide.
