Estate Auctions
« 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.
I have a tilt wheel for more headroom!

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.
