One of a batch of 25 machines created for Ducati by NCR for homologation purposes for the Formula 1 class of the 1978 Formula TT World Championships. This batch of machines enabled Ducati to take the very first of its now 30 plus world titles and most famously, one was ridden by Mike Hailwood in his now-legendary comeback win at the Isle of Man in 1978, when he emerged from an 11-year self-imposed exile from mainstream motorcycle racing at the geriatric (at least in racing terms) age of 38 years. In winning, he averaged 108.51mph and set a new lap record of 110.62mph, beating Phil Read on a works Honda for the title. This bike was purchased in 1978 and stored, untouched, until in early 2014, it sold at auction for US$175,500.

This rare motorcycle crossed the auction block during the sale of the Brian Verrall Collection in 2008. Series-A Vincents are rare animals. The prototype Series-A Rapide broke cover at the 1936 Olympia Motor Cycle Show, and although production commenced in 1936, it was halted in 1939 at the outbreak of WWII and resumed in 1946 with the all-new Series-B.

This 1939 Vincent-HRD 998cc Series-A Rapide sold for GBP198,400 (US$357,291) in September 2008 at the Bonhams’ auction of the Brian Verrall Collection in London.

The first Indian prototype was completed on May 24, 1901 and shipped to Springfield to be demonstrated to investors on the famous Cross Street hill. Following a successful fund raising, the first machine was dismantled for evaluation and many of its parts used in the creation of two subsequent prototypes. One machine toured velodrome exhibitions throughout the northeast of the United States, while the third prototype, this machine, was shipped to London for the 1901 Stanley Bicycle Show.

The appeal of the Vincent, and the 120mph-plus Black Shadow in particular, lay in its ability to outperform just about every other vehicle on the road, and in the early post-war years there was nothing to compare with it. This was a time when the average family saloon was barely capable of reaching 70mph, and not until the advent of Jaguar’s XK120 was there a production sportscar that could live with the thundering v-twins from Stevenage. Not every Shadow-specification machine left the factory with the distinctive black-finished engine casings, with those few that did not being known as ‘White Shadows’ and identified by a ‘1A’ engine number prefix (Rapides are ‘1’, Black Shadows are ‘1B’). Only a relative handful of these White Shadows is known to exist today. This 1954 Vincent 998cc White Shadow Series-C was sold at auction for GBP 81,800 (US$163,461) by Bonhams in April, 2007.

America’s first four-cylinder motorcycle, the Pierce was manufactured by the Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company at its factory in Buffalo, New York. Although inspired by the Belgian FN four, one of which Percy Pierce had brought to the USA in 1908, the Pierce differed in detail design, its engine eschewing the FN’s ‘atmospheric’ inlet valves in favor of mechanical side valves in ‘T-head’ configuration, a arrangement FN themselves would later use. Priced at $325 in 1909, it cost $400 when production ceased in 1913, at which time the basic Ford Model T was priced at $525. This first year (1909) Pierce Four was sold in original condition for US$161,000 in November, 2007 by Bonhams

When this bike was purchased new in April 1924, it was the highest specification Brough Superior available – the SS100 was not to appear until later that year. In addition to being fitted with the new four-cam/twin-camshaft JAP sports engine and Brampton Number 2 forks, it was also supplied with the relatively uncommon Binks 'Mousetrap' competition carburettor, as fitted to the earliest SS80s. (Later SS80s featured Webb forks and 'touring' carburettors). Also fitted were the (now very rare) Binks matching twist-grips for ignition advance/retard and throttle, complete with matching rubber grips. To round off the specification, Robert MacDonald fitted the best available speedometer: a 100mph Bonniksen, complete with trip meter. It sold for GBP 100,500 (US$158,971) in October, 2011at Bonhams’ Stafford sale.

To round off the specification, Robert MacDonald fitted the best available speedometer: a 100mph Bonniksen, complete with trip meter. It sold for GBP 100,500 (US$158,971) in October, 2011at Bonhams’ Stafford sale.
It had been Philip Vincent's belief that provision of ample weather protection combined with enclosure of engine and gearbox, would make the Vincent Series-D the ultimate 'gentleman's motorcycle', though delayed delivery of the glassfibre panels - plus continuing demand for traditionally styled models - resulted in over half the production leaving the Stevenage factory in un-enclosed form. The enclosed Rapide and Black Shadow were known as Black Knight and Black Prince respectively. Other Series-D innovations included a new frame and rear suspension, a user-friendly centre stand, plus many improvements to the peerless v-twin engine. When production ceased in December 1955, around 460 Series-D v-twins had been built, some 200 of which were enclosed models. This late model 1955 Vincent Black Prince left the factory just a few months before production ceased, and although a “basket case” it included all the parts. It sold for GBP 91,100 (US$153,094) in June, 2104 at Bonhams’ Oxford sale.

In the book “McQueen’s Machines: The Cars and Bikes of a Hollywood Icon” by Matt Stone, McQueen biographer William Nolan conveys that in the fall of 1951, McQueen had “saved enough money to buy a battered cycle with a sidecar (removed at an unstated time), which he proudly tooled around the (Greenwich) Village. ‘It was my first bike and I loved it,’ admitted Steve. ‘But I was going with a girl who began to hate the cycle – just hated riding in the bumpy sidecar. She told me, “Either the cycle goes or I go!” ‘Well, there was no contest. She went.’” That battered cycle was this 1946 Indian Chief which, now restored, sold for US$146,750 at an Auctions America sale in August, 2013
