    Looks like the bidding will be hot for a couple of them.
    There are locally a couple of folks who have some really rare HD's n Indians. They have price tags that are sky high. I wonder if these will fetch even higher prices during the auction than what the article quoted.

    The most rare ride I have ever seen was a Vincent, that was actually being ridden.

    Brough Superior was such an expensive ride, an unusually high proportion of them survive.

    Lawerance of Arabia was riding one when he was killed, or managed to kill himself

    Just saw this.  Very cool.

     

    My question is - how come I can never find anything like this.  Anytime I did around in an old building the only thing I ever find bits me and I wind up at the walk-in clinic!

    When I poke around in buildings and outside stuff I always carry hornet spray.

    I learned quick when I was young, I was wedged under a car I was getting parts off of, then I woke up the hornets.

    It was the fastest I have got myself from under a car in my life. :-)

    Thanks for the share.  Interesting bikes.  I love the inline 4 with the double rear wheel.  Too much cash and work, I would rather just build something like it.  If I had the money I'd love an Indian Inline 4.
