So what did you buy Bob??  I would have liked that DKW  Hummel. Had one of those in the old country. Wonder if there is a way to see what stuff sold for?

Didn't buy anything there were a couple of things I should have bought my buddy from Denver did real good on his TZ you can go to the Mecum website and sign up and then go to the website and see the price kind of surprising what collectors are looking for I'll try to get some pics up later

now this is what I call a garage this was only the Wed & Thurs bikes the other side was Fri & Sat bikes




incase your wondering this is what a 539 thousand dollar bike looks like it sold for 490 thousand + a 49 thousand dollar buyer premium









and my favorite was built for an Evil Knievel movie

That racing hack would be awesome!
It would tragically find it's way to Bonneville, however.
Who are the grateful dead? And why do they keep following me?
