Las Vegas 2021

Call it passion on display, Mecum’s 30th Annual vintage bike auction was moved, rescheduled and reorganized. The result was a seamless, streamlined four day event that featured more beautiful motorcycles under roof than any place on earth. Welcome to Las Vegas – where vintage motorcycles (and motorcyclists) rule.

Read more about this Rickman Kawasaki in the 2021 Mecum auction report. It sold for $6060 and you won’t find another that cheap. Also featured is this Bol d’Or 1000F2. It went for pennies on the dollar. Hope I get another chance. Guzzi T-Series p2 for RC underway. Ride a classic? Read RealClassic!

“For riders who appreciate fine fabrication and view spartan accoutrements as the defining nature of a true high performance motorcycle, the Egli is certain to appeal. Sadly tagged as a toy for the affluent, the Egli’s price reflected the time, skill, materials and dedication needed for this specification. All too often and certainly in this case “high price” reflects a common misconception. The truth of it reveals the Egli was a bargain, especially considering the heritage attached to the maker’s name.” Nolan Woodbury
