It looks like we will be having another great
auction coming up. Our good friend, Gordon Razee of Razee Cycles is
closing a big warehouse (not the shop, that is doing great) and we have
been contracted to sell all of the approximately 220 motorcycles on the
list to the highest bidder.
The bikes are all sorts of conditions, sizes and
ages from riders to parts bikes, mopeds to Goldwings. We will be getting
better photographs and a list as we dig them out. Here are some notes on
what I found so far.
bikes: We have a 1947 Vincent Rapide that runs good, these are some of
the most collectable bikes in the world and a great ride and investment.
Everybody had heard of the famous "Black Shadow", well a Rapide is the
same basic bike for half the price. I found a great barn find 1966
Triumph TT. The TT was made for racing and they were real hot rods, most
were converted for street use and drag racing. This one looks like it
was put away in the 60's, with correct matching numbers.
I found a 1974 BMW R90S this was an iconic bike
for BMW as it was their first superbike and
they won the AMA national championship with them. That bike will be
ready to ride along with the special edition BMW R100RS that was
supposed to be the last air cooled Boxer. We have lots of collectable
Hondas from the famous step thru's, right to the early GL1000. Brit
bikes: BSAs Triumphs, even a period Royal Enfield Chopper.
Dirt bikes: Classic Greeves, CZ, Honda etc. as
well as a large amount of Motocross and Enduro bikes both vintage and
There are lots of mopeds, scooters, mini bikes as
well as a bunch of modern street bikes. Some of these bikes might run
with gas and a battery, while some may need a bunch of work and some
will be for parts.
We have some really old rough bikes and frames
that go back to when Gordon's dad ran the shop.
We are having the auction on Sunday because the
warehouse is in an industrial park and we will have lots of room to
spread out plus parking. This is a one-day deal, so bring money and a
truck. You need to be prepared to pay right after the auction and we
will have pick-up right after you pay your bill. If you buy so much that
you need to come back for more loads, no worries. Gordon's guys will be
available during the following week.
will be no Internet bidding or other foolishness, many of these bikes
need work, you need to come and see them, win and lug them off.
This is a good old-fashioned real auction where
we sell it all. Please come and join the fun.
We can take good old cash, just go get some and
roll it up and stuff in your front pockets. We can take credit cards,
but the banks charge us so much these days that we have to add 3%. We
can only take checks from licensed dealers or people who have a bank
letter of guarantee or if we know you very well. Cash is easy, everybody
is comfortable with it. You pay your sales tax when you register your
bike, not to us.
