Sale of the Century: The 2019 Las Vegas Motorcycle Auctions

The motorcycle marketplace displayed a considerably different mood than we've been accustomed to in Vegas this year, blowing away auction records and illustrating that the tastes of the buying public are changing. While vintage and veteran bikes performed well at the top, the real movers were two-strokes, seventies classics and Japanese motorcycles in general.
