Bonhams Spring and Autumn Stafford Sales are two of the highlights of the global auction year for rare and storied motorcycles. Every year there are records broken, and many of the world's most expensive motorcycles have crossed the block at this venue. This year was no exception.
The Villa Erba auction saw 11 cars exceed US$1,000,000, an 87 percent sell-thru rate, and an average price of $880,000. The main event though, the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, was beyond spectacular in every respect, with the finest of Europe's vast automotive heritage on display.
