Motorcycle auctions have always been somewhat of a sideshow during Monterey Car Week, but just the same, some delectable machinery is scattered between the four-wheeled lots, and this year saw quite a few remarkable two-wheeled offerings.

Board track racers from a century ago dominated the sales, with three of the top four sales going to these titans of yesteryear.

The top sale of the week was a rare four-cylinder factory 1917 Henderson Board Track racer, which fetched $159,500 ($145,000 hammer price plus 10 percent buyers premium).

Perhaps the surprise of the entire event was a 1931 Brough Superior SS80 that was owned by Steve McQueen during the 1970s, and then his good mate, Kenny Howard (aka Von Dutch).

McQueen knew how much Von Dutch loved the bike so he loaned it to him during the 1970s, with an agreement between the two that if anything should happen to either of them, the survivor would own the machine. McQueen died in 1980, so Von Dutch officially owned it for the subsequent four years until it was passed to the next custodian.

1931 Brough Superior SS80 | Price: $88,000 | Estimate: $175,000 - $250,000 |Auctioneer: Gooding & Co | Lot 034 | Auction Description

This bike (Engine: KTCY/W 92365/SFrame No. 1161) was sold at a Gooding auction at Pebble Beach in 2011 for $176,000, making it the most expensive Brough Superior SS80 ever sold at that time. It was subsequently surpassed only by the SS80 nicknamed "Old Bill", a bike ridden extensively by George Brough himself, that was sold by H&H Auctions in 2012 for £291,200 ($463,847).

That bike deserved its extraordinary price because it had won more than 50 races with the creator of the Brough Superior marque in the saddle.

So this bike went to auction as the second most valuable SS80 ever sold, with Steve McQueen and Von Dutch provenance, and when the hammer fell the buyer had to pay just $88,000 to become the next custodian. Though the official Gooding & Company estimate was $175,000 to $250,000, which was light in our opinion, the bike was sold without reserve, and someone in the right place at the right time amongst an audience of car enthusiasts, picked up a gold-plated, once-in-a-lifetime bargain.

There are many more stories to be told, but as this is Monterey Car Week, we've listed the best of the bunch with all the links, to make it easy for those with a penchant for two-wheeled exotica.

Auctioneer: Mecum | Lot F216 | Auction Description

Arguably the most famous and recognizable motorcycle in history, the Captain America Harley Panhead Chopper ridden by Peter Fonda in the 1969 "road movie" Easy Rider sold at auction in 2014 for $1.62 million, but Dan Hagerty (formerly of "Grizzly Adams" fame but now better known as a scammer) who had owned the bike, had previously sold a replica for a large amount too. The auction buyer backed out, but a deal was eventually done for a private sale reported to be in the vicinity of $1.25 million.

The bike above is the Captain America bike which sold for $1.6 million at auction, then the sale fell through, then it reportedly sold privately for $1.25 million. Another Captain America Replica sold for  $7,700 in Monterey, 2018| Estimate: $10,000 - $20,000 | Auctioneer: Mecum | Lot F216 | Auction Description

The above bike is the one that someone paid circa $1.25 million for, so the buyer of Lot F216 has a bike that is largely the same, but he paid $1,242,300 less. No-one will know the difference except for the owner of the real one, and he's not sure either. Good buying.
