Not a lot of Crockers come to market because only around 100 of the v-twins were ever built between 1936 and 1942 and only 72 are known to still exist. Those that make it to auction invariably sell for spectacular numbers, and several have been rumoured to have changed hands privately for more than $500,000. This 1942 Crocker V Twin (Lot S69) is estimated $300,000 to $350,000

Not a lot of Crockers come to market because only around 100 of the v-twins were ever built between 1936 and 1942 and only 72 are known to still exist.

This 1917 Henderson is an older restoration, but incorporates the ‘generator’ option for the Model G which was a very expensive upgrade and hence very rare. Only six of these machines are believed to exist and this bike is also one of six bikes purchased by E.J. Cole from the Steve McQueen estate. With its rarity and the provenance of the man with the midas touch, expect fireworks when this exquisite machine reaches the block. Lot S85 is estimated to fetch between $135,000 and $175,000.

One of the true classics in the Cole collection, this 1907 Indian Tri-Car With Sedan Chair is for all intents, a chauffeured armchair. It was made in the period where personal transportation was still finding its way, and while the pedal-powered rickshaw became commonplace in some countries, putting the passenger dead-center in harm's way proved folly and most tricars used the passenger space for more commercial endeavours and the transportation of goods.

The Michaelson Motorcycle Company already has one motorcycle in the top 100, and this 1913 Minneapolis Twin Two Speed will almost certainly become the second. The 1911 Minneapolis Model N Tricar currently at #95 in the top 100 (sold as part of the Otis Chandler Collection in 2006) featured a single cylinder engine. The four Michaelson brothers (Jack, Walter, Joe and Anton) developed a motorcycle whose design was one of the freshest and most advanced of its time - this big V-twin

Pope produced the first OHV production engine in America in 1912, and would remain as the only OHV engine for many years. This 1914 Pope Model K single is hence of revolutionary design, fully restored, in beautiful condition, and is a very rare combination of an OHV engine with belt drive. E.J. Cole purchased this 1914 Pope Model K at the Steve McQueen Estate Auction at Las Vegas’ Imperial Palace in November 1986, so once again, the McQueen provenance will boost the price.

This ultra-rare first-year 1912 Henderson 4 is believed to be one of only six survivors. It’s an older restoration, and was purchased from Cape Town, South Africa in 1983. Remarkably, if you look closely, you'll see that the passenger is seated in front of the rider, between a long pair of ‘wheelbarrow’ handlebars.
