Wow, Jerry has posted the list of all the bikes for sale at the auction on his site. Everyone should take a look at all the bikes. If your significant other ever says anything about how many bikes you have, show her this collection. It should be a great auction with lots of bikes and parts.

Wow for sure!

I wonder if having a venue like Daytona, with trillions of people there, will result in higher-than-usual prices, or maybe lower, or no effect as compared to a "normal" auction ... ?

good question Lannis. depends what a "normal" auction is? bonhams and the like will attract higher rollers. in some cases the sheer quantity of stuff in this daytona auction may hold some prices down as peoples budgets may be stretched to buy more bikes than usual . that goes for people buying parts lots to resell. halfway decent britbikes will be bought , taken apart by the buyers, and sold for parts. they will make 4 times the money keeping breakers supplied with triumphs and nortons and bsa.

But they are probably pretty good at identifying various brands of leather vests and chaps. laughing

I know that antique dealers are the ones you want to compete against in an estate furniture auction. The dealers are buying stuff for resale, they're going to pay about half of what they will sell it for in their store or on their site. You can beat them with a bid of more than half of the store price.

Seems like it would be similarly hard for a dealer to compete against a motivated private buyer if a bike came up that the buyer really liked and wanted, as opposed to someone who wants it at wholesale ....

But I've never been there, so I'll have to watch and learn ....

well high end furniture i guess. but middle of the pack antique furniture is even hard to give away these days.

iodine, you are wrong. what the people at auctions know is pretty serious. they know what they want and how much they will spend.


for individual machines that somebody wants to own, those guys may bid it up. but most bikes like mcqueen stuff is exotic and doesnt come from the estate auctions, but by and large the dealers know what they can get in resales. especially in parts. i might not want to pay 2k for a run of the mill T100. but a parts breaker sees the bike worth double or triple in parts? he is going to out bid you. parts lots as well because the breaker has means to get rid of the stuff he doesn't want. me, i get stuck with half a dozen T100 tranny covers to buy one inner primary. if i go to auctions its out of curiosity. i rarely bid or end up with anything. but one never knows.
