c. 1972 Carabela 175 SuperSport

Motor no. ARST.16504.JI
Frame no. NST.020072-H-I

In the early 1960’s, a large industrial concern in northern Mexico, Acermex, which manufactured bicycles, decided to enter the motorcycle market after watching the
“Moto Islo” factory create their great selling new motorcycle. To bring to life their new motorcycle, “Carabela,” they commissioned an Italian, Mr. Remo Vecci, to go to Italy to purchase motors, suspension parts, lighting equipment – everything needed to construct their new motorcycle.

Italian manufacturers, including Minarelli, a supplier of quality motors for many
Italian motorcycle brands, were pleased to work with this new Mexican company. German, Italian and Czechoslovakian tool makers supplied the machines necessaryto assemble the new “Carabela.” European and American engineers were hired to oversee their production.

Sales took off quickly ! In a short time, Carabela designers created motorcycles for transportation, moto-cross, trials and road racing.

This sporting model is extremely rare. Its Minarelli engine is a factory special.
The massive cylinder and head are unique to this engine, with cylinder port timing to Super Sport specs. It features a five speed transmission, large carburetor with a reed valve assembly for extra power, a Moto-Plat ignition system and big Italian brakes, front and rear.

The lighting system is not hooked up at this time. The coils are there, if desired.

This is a special motorcycle.

                         NO RESERVE!

The 1905 Indian Single


 from Mort Wood’s Estate has been consigned at NO RESERVE!

Mort had Ken Smith restore this Indian Camelback from a nearly complete machine. The major components, including the engine, frame, gas tank, oil tank and fender are believed to be part of the original assembly.

This motorcycle is NOT a replica, assembled from aftermarket parts. It is a real important part of American motorcycle history. 1905 was the first year for the front suspension and double twist grips that remained in use until the last bike in 1953.

The early Indians were known to be the best in the world at the time, capable of accelerating while going up a hill and a top speed of nearly 40 mph. This is a total restoration that will run. Ken Smith told me that when he road tested this machine he was keeping up with 40 mph traffic on this 108 year old machine.

In addition to the wonderful early Indian we have a collection of posters and prints (most are framed), as well as, a 1996 Yamaha Riva Scooter, a set of tools and some new and used parts.

Moto Islo

One of three constructed

1957 Moto Islo 175cc Grand Sport

Frame no. 09028
Engine no. 09028

Mexico isn’t known for its motorcycles, but that isn’t because Mr. Isodoro Lopez wasn’t trying. Enamored with Italian designs, he sourced various components from Italy and had them assembled at his Islo factory in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico. At first, he concentrated on “tortilla bikes,” reliable runabouts used by delivery services and salesmen, which quickly gained a good reputation.

But Lopez wanted to go racing, especially in the long-distance city-to-city public-roads spectacles, so popular in Italy (like the Milan-Taranto and the Giro d’Italia). With 175cc motors provided by Morini, Lopez and company commissioned the construction of four Carrera models to be completed in time for the 1957 Italian racing season. Outfitted with unique quasi-fairings, the bikes were tidy-looking affairs that seemed up to the task. Unfortunately, logistics pushed the effort back to the ’58 season, but by then, the Italian government, spurred into action after several spectator deaths at the open-road events, had outlawed the races for cars and motorcycles.

The four factory Carrera racebikes never made it to Italy and were used for at time as display pieces in dealer showrooms and at Moto Islo headquarters.

This Islo motorcycle is a 175cc Grand Sports, one of only three produced. The Grand Sport was built to Carrera specifications, but without the fairing and sporting a larger carburetor. Islo offered these new bikes to racing enthusiasts at their Monterrey, Mexico dealership for a short period.

This very rare motorcycle is offered in ground-up restored condition from a prominent private collection.

1967 Triumph Bonneville

The 1966 and 1967 are many people's favorite Bonnevilles. These were built before the EPA and the DOT made Triumph "civilize" the machines.

This bike has had a nice older restoration and is in great shape. These machines have a special sound and are a blast to ride. The reserve is so low, I can almost say that the bike will sell to the highest bidder. Come prepared to take it home.


1965 Triumph TR6SR,


The SR was a special "Highway Trophy" single carb sports 650. It had the same features and specifications as the Bonneville except the single carb that actually worked better in most riding situations.


This bike is in amazing excellent original condition and comes with the original tool kit and even the Triumph rag. The bike has had a thorough refurbishing by a very experienced Triumph tech with all new seals and gaskets, fresh tires and a fresh top overhaul. The bike runs like brand new and everything works.

1959 Triumph Bonneville

The very first year for the twin carb Bonneville built for US customers. These bikes had many special parts. This machine used many NOS parts in the restoration and is very nice. The reserve is so low that I could almost say that this bike will sell to the highest bidder. Come prepared to take it home!



1958 Triumph TR6/B Trophy Bird


This motorcycle has had an extensive, very meticulous restoration. All new old stock factory Triumph parts were used. Even the tires are the correct English Dunlops that are correct for the TR6B. The bike was completely done including the engine and transmission, so it is smooth and quiet just like a brand new motorcycle.




1947 Triumph Tiger 100
