LAS VEGAS – For the 29th year, Mecum Auctions’ annual vintage and antique motorcycle auction will return to South Point Arena and Equestrian Center’s Priefert Pavilion on Tuesday, Jan. 21 through Sunday, Jan. 26 with an estimated 1,750 motorcycles expected to cross the auction block.
The event is recognized as the largest global familial-like gathering of consignors, buyers and spectators who share a passion for the history, beauty and camaraderie invoked and inspired by vintage and antique motorcycles.
The two-wheel extravaganza will feature 28 collections that comprise 710 lots with 386 at no reserve, highlighted by 148 units, including 143 lots at no reserve, from The Art Bulmann Collection, 95 lots from The Northwest Collection and the 78 lots from The Bob Weaver Collection with six lots at no reserve. Also among headlining collection offerings are a handful of motorcycles from the estates of the late Indian Larry and the late Jesse Rooke. Four lots from The Northwest Collection are among the featured lots consigned to this year’s Mecum Las Vegas auction. The lots include a 1969 Honda CB750 Sandcast (Lot S173) with just 400 miles since being correctly and properly restored in the 1990s; a 1962 Honda CR 93 Race Version (Lot S164) that was meticulously restored 25 years ago; and an original and unrestored 1952 Honda Club-F (Lot S165) and 1963 Honda CR93 Street Version (Lot S163).
Among the consignments from The Bob Weaver Collection of many low- or zero-mile original Japanese, Italian and British motorcycles are three featured lots including a 1930 Brough Superior SS100 (Lot S141) that was completely restored in England by a British motorcycle expert; a 1905 Indian Single (Lot S140) owned by the same owner for the last 40 years; and an all-original 1911 Pierce Arrow Four (Lot S138).
An additional 450 items will be offered through Mecum On Time, Mecum Auctions’ online-only auction platform. The lots include toys, tin and neon signs, globes, oil cans, tools and other items.
