Las Vegas Premier Motorcycle Auction

Auctions America by RM will kick start the 2012 motorcycle event calendar with its debut Las Vegas Premier Motorcycle Auction at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 12-14.

Some 400 classic two wheelers are expected to cross the podium during the multi-day sale. Headlining the event, a historic and pioneering 1894 Roper Steam-Powered motorcycle, one of just two built and offered for the first time at a public sale, is expected to set a new world-record for a motorcycle sold at auction. Other notable entries include a selection of very rare, early bikes from the renowned Jerry DeMille Collection including a 1911 Wagner; a 1911 Sears Single Cylinder; a 1910 ½ Yale Single Cylinder; and a 1929 Cleveland.”

In addition to the auction, Auctions America will host an exclusive motorcycle seminar on Saturday, January 14. A continuing part of Auctions America’s educational series, the seminar will see noted industry experts, including Buzz Walneck, Founder of Walneck’s Magazines; Doug Mitchell, noted motorcycle author; Mark Hoyer, Editor of Cycle World magazine; and respected collector, Joe Bortz, take the floor to share their market insights and predictions.
