Title: Estate Auctions
Post by: moonpup on April 09, 2012, 09:55:17 PM
Just a heads-up on an estate auction in Nebraska on May 12th. The ad says there is a Bridgestone 350 available but that is NOT correct. They have a pic of the Bridgestone for auction and I'm pretty sure it's a 175. I called the estate people to see if they had more than 1 Bridgestone and they said no, that was it. He apologised for the error and said that is what the owners told him it was.

So, if you're looking for a 175 head that way or bid by proxi over the internet. They also have a number of other bikes some of you may be interested in. Check it out....

Last one is a little Indian twin; a flawed but pretty motorbike.

That's the Indian. Basically a re-badged Royal Enfield sold under the Indian name. Bridgestone looks to be a MK11RS? Norton is a John Player Commando. Nice find!

I talked to Randy Baxter the other day and he told me about this. I was going to go with him until I saw it was not a 350, so I'm probably going to pass. A round trip for me will be at least $200 in gas to bid on a bike that's only worth $100 if that? And then there is the proxy bid deal... People driving the price up and backing out later, that's awesome.

I'm sure Baxter is after the John Player Special, you will need deep pockets to pry that away from him. You can keep the Indians, (There is a twin in the auction)... those things ARE flawed (I'm being polite).

I used to live in Hastings, not far from Henderson, in fact I've been to Henderson. It's strange how bikes end up in such out of the way places.

Those little Indians were not rebadged Royal Enfields. They were an Indian product. You are thinking of the Tomahawk and its brethren.

I'm not sure anyone here has that info, but you could always open the link and contact the company that ran the auction and ask them for the results.

For those of you with other bikes in your collection/stash, this looks like an interesting estate sale with lots of goodies. Can't see any BS stuff in there, but you never know. If you live close by it might be worth your time to check it out.

"A Motorcycle Hall of Fame inductee in 1999, Bob Hansen passed away in February after a long life of doing what he loved; motorcycle racing, and making motorcycles go fast.

I live in San Diego and I went. Unbelievable amount of stuff. There were about 30 people waiting before it started and when they opened the gate it was a bum rush. Most of the fiberglass stuff went fast. I did get a CB750 racing seat. Bob had most everything in a proper place and labeled. I also got a box with racing tachs, a really cool wheel truing stand and a bunch oh misc bits. No BS stuff but I did get some stuff for my race bike (spare Tommeselli copy levers just like I use) and sold a fair portion of stuff to hopefully get something else I can use.

paul

p.s. funny a lot of people were cafe racer types and didn't know exactly what some things were. I got a twin pull brake lever setup for TD or early TZ and no body knew what it was for.

Here's a doozy of an estate auction that's chuck full of neat bikes & parts and includes a 350 GTR.

It looks like the auction isn't until March 8th. 2016, so you'll have plenty of time to get your ducks in a row.  ;D

Scroll down till you see "Terms of Sale:" and just above that, click the yellow "Motorcycles" or "Parts & Engines" to view the pictures. 

Wish I lived a lot closer to this one!

Wow, I wonder if the GTR in the auction is the same bike? Wish there was a better picture of it than the partial glimpse that was posted. I guess someone could contact them and try to get more info on it.

Thanks for doing the research and posting that Paul.... very interesting.  8)

One of the best condition seats , I have seen on a GTR. I would like to instruments and chrome section of gas tank.Those bars need to changed. Cables would probably need to be changed. Viva Las Vegas

I think I see the side stand just peeking out from under the muffler.  It may be a bit more hidden than is typical.
