The world’s largest vintage motorcycle auction is rolling into Las Vegas Jan. 25-29 as Mecum Auctions is running 1,750 classic motorcycles through the lanes! Better yet, Dealernews will be offering a preview of some of the bikes during AIMExpo in Booth #1031. Since 1992, the global vintage and antique motorcycle community has associated Las Vegas in January with one thing: Mecum’s Motorcycle Auction, but this year is going to be a real blockbuster!
The headline act is the Harley-Davidson Heritage Collection — 95 bikes from every year of the Milwaukee motorcycle company’s history from 1910 to 1969. Among the collection’s featured lots are a 1910 Harley-Davidson Belt Drive Single, a rare 1942 Harley-Davidson XA Military Opposed Twin Shaft Drive and a 1924 Harley-Davidson JDCA.
Approximately 20 high-quality private collections will be offered at Las Vegas 2022 as well, including assemblages from Dr. J. Craig Venter, Tim and Linda LaQuay, Bob and Dolva Mitchell, and many others, with highlights ranging from an 8,400-mile 1968 Triumph T100R Daytona from The Hamilton Triumph Motorcycle Collection to an award-winning 1938 Brough Superior SS100.
The Las Vegas motorcycle auction consistently presents motorcycles from around the globe and will once again feature both foreign and domestic offerings from American-built machines such as the 1912 Indian Big Base Board Track Racer to offerings from across the pond and beyond, including a 1974 BMW R90S, a 1979 Honda CBX, a 1973 Kawasaki 500 H1 D Mach III, a 1970 Yamaha RT1 (Lot F299) and much, much more.
Bidder registration for Mecum Las Vegas Motorcycles 2022 is available in advance online at Mecum.com and on-site at the auction for $200, and it includes admission for two to all five auction days. Doors open daily at 8 a.m. with the vehicle auction beginning at 10 a.m.
