Mecum Motorcycle Auction Returns to South Point Hotel,
June 1 and 2
600 Vintage and Collectible Motorcycles to Cross the Auction Block

 

Following the success of the inaugural summer Mecum Las Vegas Vintage Motorcycle Auction last June, which achieved $4.4 million in sales with an 80-percent sell-through rate, Mecum will again return to the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2 with an estimated 600 vintage and collectible motorcycles on offer.

 

The event will kick off with a Legends of Racing Preview Party on Thursday, May 31 at 4 p.m. hosted by Don Emde and featuring Brad Lackey, Eddie Lawson, Kenny Roberts and Bubba Shobert. The auction will start Friday morning at 10 a.m., and the current lineup is chock-full of desirable collector motorcycles.

 

Nearly 100 bikes from The Jim Lattin Collection will be among the auction’s featured attractions. The collection represents more than 100 years of two-wheelers from a turn-of-the-century De Dion-Bouton, a 1905 Iver Johnson and a 1916 Shaw Motor Bike, to present-day examples from Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Yamaha and more.

 

The Best of Show Collection comprises 21 no-reserve consignments with nearly all restored by master motorcycle craftsmen including Don Harrell, Martin Schalkwijk, Jim Hiddleston, Rod Wheeler, Lars Petersen, Dale Matteson and Jim Kilau –  all noted to be among the best in the world in their respective fields of expertise. Among the Best of Show Collection are selections from BSA, Matchless, Norton and others with Triumphs ruling the roost; his Bonneville T120s span from 1966 through 1969, and three of them carry the “R” racing designation.

 

Other collections consigned to Mecum’s Las Vegas June motorcycle auction encompass bikes from the Estate of R.J. Casale, including motorcycles that were impeccably restored like a 1960 Cushman Super Eagle, a 1953 Indian Chief and a 1965 Harley-Davidson FLH Electra Glide; the Tim Walker Collection, an assemblage that consists of Italian, French, English and American bikes; a dozen racing bikes from collector Bob Weaver; and, 10 motorcycles from the John McNulty Collection, nine of which will be offered without reserves.

 

Bidder registration for the auction is available online in advance for $100—or $200 at the auction—and includes admission for two to each auction day. General admission tickets are available in advance online at Mecum.com for $20, and for $30 at the door and online after May 31. Children 12 years of age and younger receive complimentary admission. Doors open daily at 8 a.m. with the auction beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2. Portions of the event will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network on Sunday, June 3 from 1 to7 p.m. A livestream of the entire auction will be presented at Mecum.com.

Mecum To Offer Unprecedented Collection Of American-Built Motorcycles at South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa

Mecum To Offer Unprecedented Collection Of American-Built Motorcycles at South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa

The E.J. Cole Collection – Representing 50 Years of American Motorcycle Treasure March 20-21

 

Mecum Auctions will present the E.J. Cole Collection at auction March 20-21, 2015 at South Point Casino and Exhibit Hall in Las Vegas. Representing 50 years of collecting what any motorcycle enthusiast would consider American Treasure, the collection today stands at more than 220 strong and is considered by many to be the finest, most diverse single collection of American-made machines.

 

“It is the largest single grouping of American-built motorcycles ever offered to the public from one person’s collection,” commented Ron Christenson, president of Mecum’s Motorcycle division. “We are confident that the entire collection could fetch as much as $15-20 million at auction. It’s an amazing group of motorcycles and its proportion is truly epic. It’s already being dubbed ‘The Antique Motorcycle Auction of the Century.’”

 

There are several bikes that will headline the offering including many that were previously owned by Steve McQueen as well as two of Cole’s personal favorites, his 1907 Harley-Davidson Strap Tank (Lot S62) and his 1910 Flying Merkel Board Track Racer (Lot S79), both in original and unrestored condition. Other headliners, to name just a few, include Cole’s 1915 Cyclone Board Track Racer formerly owned by Steve McQueen (Lot S57), his 1907 Indian Tri-Car (Lot S67), 1942 Crocker Big Tank (Lot S69) and his 1912 Minneapolis Big 5 Single (Lot S89).

 

A number of Cole’s motorcycles have been proudly displayed at museums in South Dakota and Iowa. These motorcycles will be gathered up and presented for auction in Las Vegas, but Cole is hopeful the new owners will lend, as he has often done, their newly acquired antique motorcycle to one of the fine motorcycle museums around the United States.

 

Cole recognizes the unique variety in his collection saying, “I didn’t really have a preference [among makes]. As long as it was a motorcycle and American-made and I didn’t have one, I went after it. I just mainly tried to buy one of everything there was, and that’s about it. I just went for everything.” He also acknowledges his reluctance to let go of what he’s spent more than 50 years putting together. “If my age hadn’t gotten ahead of me, why I’d still be out trying to add to it, but being that I’m 89, I feel like it’s time to quit.” He adds that, “Here at my place nobody gets to see them and they need to be out where people can enjoy them.”

 

The entire E.J. Cole Collection consists of 239 lots, 231 of those being offered at no reserve. With production years ranging from 1903 to 1991, the collection will be offered at a stand-alone auction this March 20-21. Some of the bikes have never before been seen by the public, let alone offered up for sale, making this offering one of the most unique of its kind.

UFC AND HARLEY-DAVIDSON RIDE INTO SOUTH FLORIDA ON JUNE 8!

UFC® RIDES INTO SOUTH FLORIDA FOR HARLEY-
DAVIDSON ‘HOMETOWN THROWDOWN’ EVENT ON JUNE 8

FLYWEIGHT MAIN EVENT
DEMETRIOUS JOHNSON vs. IAN MCCALL

Plus, Fans Will Vote to Decide One Main Card Bout to Air Live on FX!

UFC’s Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown on FX
Friday, June 8
BankAtlantic Center – Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, APRIL 13

The Ultimate Fighting Championship® and Harley-Davidson® ride in to the BankAtlantic Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. on Friday, June 8 with an outstanding UFC® event headlined by flyweight rivals Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and Ian McCall. The winner of the fight will go on to fight Joseph Benavidez for the first-ever UFC 125-pound title later in the year.

UFC’s Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown event will air live on FX at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.

Southern Florida was selected for this event as a part of the UFC, Harley-Davidson “Hometown Throwdown” program. The program allowed fans to visit the UFC, Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown website and submit a city for consideration for a future event.

In addition to helping choose the city, fans will also play a key role in determining a main card bout on the card. UFC fans can go to ufc.com/hometownthrowdown to vote for which bout will make it onto the main card and be the first fight shown on the FX telecast.

Fans can choose between the following three bouts: Scott Jorgensen vs. Eddie Wineland in bantamweight action; Carlos Eduardo Rocha vs. Mike Pierce in a welterweight bout; Lance Benoist vs. Seth Baczynski at 170-pounds.

Fans can also enter to win the UFC experience of a lifetime at the Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown event and their own custom Harley® motorcycle through a sweepstakes that runs through April 28, 2012. See full sweepstakes information and rules at ufc.com/hometownthrowdown.

The main event of Johnson versus McCall comes in high-demand. The two first squared off in an action-packed bout last month in Australia, with Johnson initially being declared the winner. However, it was revealed shortly thereafter that the judges’ scorecards were calculated incorrectly by the local athletic commission and the actual decision was a draw. Thus, Johnson and McCall will extend their rivalry on June 8 in a three-round rematch. If the fight is a draw after three rounds, the competitors will go to a sudden victory round to determine which man will earn the right to compete for the UFC world title.

“I’m excited to bring the UFC back to Florida!” UFC President Dana White said. “The first fight between Johnson and McCall was incredible, and on June 8, they will finally finish the fight to determine who is going to fight for the first-ever flyweight title.”

“We are thrilled and honored to welcome the UFC to the BankAtlantic Center for the first time in our history,” said SSE President & COO Michael R. Yormark. “The UFC represents the pinnacle of mixed martial arts and one of the greatest live sports spectacles in the world, so it is fitting that South Florida’s premier entertainment destination – the BankAtlantic Center – will now be hosting a UFC event for the first time.”

Tickets for UFC’s Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown go on sale Friday, April 13 at 10 a.m. ET. Ticket prices will be announced in days to come.  Tickets are available online at Ticketmaster.com or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000, as well as the BankAtlantic Center Box Office.

UFC® Fight Club members will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to this event Wednesday, April 11 at 10 a.m. ET via the website www.ufcfightclub.com.  A special Internet ticket pre-sale will be available to UFC newsletter subscribers Thursday, April 12, starting at 10 a.m. ET.
