Legends 2014 - Wow!

Spalding Sports Card

Flathead Rob found this 1926 Spalding sports card in a local antique store today. Mr Seymour had a very prolific year in 1926, astride his factory Indian racer.

Evidently I'm not the only motorcyclist struggling to wait patiently through winter.

A frequent reader complained recently that I was not posting enough Panhead content. So here it is:

Vesco T100R

Here's a T100R that Don Vesco (of Yamaha fame) and his dad bought in 1956. What a history. Vintage bikes just don't get any cooler than this.
For anyone not familiar with Don Vesco the bike bellow is the one he rode (piloted) to a world record in 1975.

Flathead Rob spotted this photo on Shorpy quite some time ago but this is the first time I've seen it colorized.

Sandia Crest

Those Sunday morning Crest runs were likely a very different experience back in the early days.

Bonhams 2016

Some of the bikes featured in the Bonham's 2016 motorcycle auction catalog are starting to show up on the Bonham's site.

There's another Gwen Banquer 1929 Indian-Crocker 45CI Overhead-Valve Conversion recreation this year. I'm not quite as smitten with this one as I was the last one but it's still a really really cool bike. The blue of the previous one was simply the ideal color for the bike.

This one-of-one China Red 1951 Vincent White Shadow is pretty intriguing too, particularly since the present owner is local to the Seattle area. I've heard this bike has had legend status in the area for decades. I'm gonna have to ask my resident Vincent authority what if anything he knows about this bike.
 The Indian showing is pretty remarkable so far too.

1926 Indian Daytona Factory Hillclimber
I'm pretty fond of this 1929 Harley-Davidson JDH Racer as well.

And finally it goes without saying that every mega-buck motorcycle auction needs a trinity of cool (Steve McQueen owned, Bud Ekins modified and Von Dutch painted) Triumph.
