Gearhead heaven: Las Vegas motorbike auction offers 600-plus bikes


Ric Anderson/ Las Vegas Sun personnel Bidding in the Mecum Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction is arranged to get underway Friday, June 2, 2017, at the South Point Display

Friday, June 2, 2017|2 a.m. With wheels about as huge around as a soccer ball and a leading speed that wouldn’t get you ticketed on most Las Vegas streets, the 1974 Honda Trail 70 up for bids in the Mecum Las Vegas Bike Auction might not seem nearly as excellent as the custom chopper sitting two bikes away.

But take a better look with a qualified eye, like Rick Doughty’s, and the little Path 70 more than holds its own with its flame-painted next-door neighbor.

“There were a number of guys looking at it, and one told the other he believed it would opt for about $3,000,” said Doughty, who’s been buying and bring back bikes for Thirty Years. “I stated, ‘Look at the odometer.’ It has 2 miles on it. To find a machine that’s been maintained so well over a lot of years is remarkable.”

in the auction, would cost $5,000 or more. Okay for a bike that cost about $700 brand-new, according to Doughty. Doughty is among numerous hundred buyers expected to end up for the

two-day auction, which starts today at South Point’s Exhibition Hall. They’ll be bidding on bikes varying from antiques from the early 1900s to powerful

modern-day makers like the stripped-down, bare-steel 2010 Confederate P120 Fight Fighter, which appears like a Terminator robot on wheels. The bikes in between show the progression of motorcycle design. There are 1910s Harley-Davidsons and

Indians that look more like bikes with engines than contemporary motorbikes, 1930s and 1940s street cruisers with art deco-style flared fenders, a great deal of 1960s and 1970s motorcycle and modern sport bikes and street cruisers. Mecum’s last Las Vegas auction, held in January, yielded more than$13 million in sales, with 868 of the 949 bikes on the block being sold. Doughty, the owner of Vintage Iron bike repairs in Yorba Linda, Calif., said that he expected this week’s bidding to be brisk. He was among purchasers who turned

out for a sneak peek Thursday.”Like whatever, the(motorcycle collector and remediation)market dropped off in 2008, but it’s been returning up ever since, “he said.”I ‘d say we’re above the pre-recession level now.”The top seller in January was a 1912 Henderson Four that cost$490,000. Today’s included items consist of a motorcycle as soon as owned by actor Charles Bronson, a sidecar-equipped 1937 Harley-Davidson and

an unusual 1971 Honda coffee shop racer. Doors open at 8 a.m., with auctioning scheduled to start at 9 a.m. Tickets are$30.
