Important Motorcycles Join Last Vegas Auction On January 6th, 2011

Bonhams is pleased to announce the addition of several important motorcycles from two renowned collections to their inaugural motorcycle sale in Las Vegas on January 6th.

First, from a famous Texas-based collection best known for its numerous and exquisite automobiles come several motorcycles. Some of those being offered include a 1935 Rudge 250 Sport, a 1952 Triumph Thunderbird 650, and a 1957 Moto Parilla175 MSDS. Of significant note, however, are two tremendous examples of early American motorcycles, both formerly owned by Otis Chandler – a rare 1911 Curtiss Marvel Single 500 and the first year production 1901 Indian F-Head “Camel Back.”
Then, from the collection of another Gulf State-based aficionado come 23 motorcycles of diverse makes and models. Included are two motorcycles from legendary maker Vincent – a 1939 HRD Meteor and a 1952 Black Knight Special with sidecar – and the incredibly rare, show-stealing 1916 Excelsior “Big Valve” Factory Board Track Racer in original paint condition.
The Las Vegas Motorcycle Sale hosted by Bonhams will feature over 200 motorcycles of incredible rarity, quality and breadth. From the Excelsior, Indian and Curtiss mentioned above, to the holy grail of them all – a complete and authentic circa 1894 Hildebrand & Wolfmüller, this inaugural Bonhams auction is a must for any serious motorcycle collector.
Buyers interested in registering to bid in person or remotely can find more information by going to Bonhams Las Vegas.  Sellers interested in consigning a motorcycle to this impressive line-up may call 415-391-4000 or e-mail
