THE LAS VEGAS MOTORCYCLE AUCTION

Postby 450duke » Sun Jan 04, 2015 6:43 pm

Significant number of singles as well as various other Ducati are being offered this week by Bonhams Auctions.
Will be interesting to see actual sell prices, some of the estimates are quite "healthy". Not sure if I can afford what I want....

Interesting list. I saw some of the auctions. The 68' 350 has the later, yellow bodywork from the 73-74 desmo models.
Some nice bikes. Did they make a 77' imola or was that a replica?

Not sure of the provenance of the Imola, reasonably tidy bike though.
Forgot to mention that the sold prices were PLUS buyers premium so some were really expensive!

For sure. There was also the 175 F3 from the Guy Webster Collection that sold for just under 90k USD. Obviously a special race model, and a 125 bialbero that didn't meet reserve.
Debate for the board:
Of the Street bikes Ducati made, which are the one or two you would pay most for given the opportunity?

I saw a few go through the block at Mecum. Some odd bikes. This year seemed like a few of the ducatis were a little below the usual quality. For instance a 750 sport that sure did look like a GT to me.
One that also stood out at Bonhams was a slightly cafe'd 66 m3 250.. $16.1k

It would be interesting to see a high quality Mach 1 or 350 twin filler or 450 Shotgun go across the block with the right crowd on hand.
