It’s a premium location, and everything set to cross the block — from memorabilia to motorcycles — reflects that. The more than 600 lots include books, hood ornaments, posters, cars, motorcycles and even the De Havilland Gipsy Moth biplane used in the filming of Out of Africa.
Auctions America by RM enjoyed a successful debut in Las Vegas this past weekend, selling more than $4.1 million worth of vintage motorcycles, with an impressive 82 percent sell-through rate of all lots offered.
The event at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Jan. 12-14 had strong attendance, with thousands of enthusiasts gathering to see 490 motorcycles and a range of bike-related memorabilia cross the auction block.
The top seller of the weekend was a beautifully restored 1910 Flying Merkel, resplendent in the company’s bright orange coloring, that garnered $86,800.
My dad used to live in Merkel, Texas. Thought I would to this post in tribute to him. He passed away over a year ago in Abeliene.
