« on: January 25, 2017, 07:08:56 PM »
If anyone sees the results of Mecum's Auction in Los Vegas please post what the
two Bridgestone's bring. One is a 100 TMX the other is a 175 SR Factory Racer.

The auction is January 25,26, and 27th. The post says there will be 1,000 motorcycles
being auctioned.

Thank you.

Hi All,

Had been watching this also. To get access to sales price you need to register, but that requires a $200 fee to bid. I am curious but not $200 curious.

We will have to see if any member was serious about buying to get costs ?

later .. ray

The SR 175 hasn't gone up on the block.... will post the results later after it closes.

Thank you for posting the Mecum results.

I had a bet with a friend what the racer would bring more.
I was lost. I thought it would bring closer to $10 k.

Thanks again for posting the prices.

Mecum posted it as a factory racer, not as a clone or a tribute.
But most people would not know how to identify a real one.

I know the color isn't correct. But I have had painters do the
same thing to a HS175 I restored. They even had a NOS side
cover to go by and still didn't get it correct.

This is believed to be the only original/unrestored 1912 Henderson known in America

Henderson was based in Detroit, formed by brothers William and Tom
The Henderson company was purchased by Ignatz Schwinn in 1918, adding a four cylinder to the Excelsior lineup.

Thank you Hal.

That one is a little out of my price range.
