Motorcycle Auctions, Classic Motorcycles, MidAmerica Auctions

The largest Motorcycle Auctions anywhere are held each January in Las Vegas by MidAmerica Auctions. Here at their Las Vegas Auction in 2011, the action was hot & heavy.

Motorcycle Auctions are not only great places to buy or sell Classic British Motorcycles, they are really fun events, loaded with action. They become a barometer for the Classic Motorcycle market, helping to determine market demand & price/value of a wide range of models.

Tracking what sells & does not sell can tell you what is popular, which trends are emerging & which are drying up. Tracking prices of sold units reveals market value & demand. Tracking prices of unsold units can tell you what is 'too much' for a given model.

While very educational & informative, Auctions are also a real blast to attend. Lots of like-minded motorcycle enthusiasts & collectors, nervous sellers, anxious buyers, there is an electricity in the air.
