Mecum’s big motorcycle auction returns to South Point

Docket led by a collection of 95 Harley-Davidsons


Led by 95 vehicles from what is being termed the Harley-Davidson Heritage Collection, Mecum Auctions’ 31st annual Las Vegas vintage and antique motorcycle auction returns to its traditional venue January 25-29. 

The auction again will be staged at the South Point hotel and casino at the south end of The Strip after being held in 2021 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

As many as 1,750 motorcycles are expected to cross the auction block.

Headlining the docket is what Mecum terms the 95-bike Harley collection of “beautifully restored models from every year of the Milwaukee motorcycle company’s history from 1910 to 1969. Most of the motorcycles in the collection were restored to an extremely high standard by the same hand-selected individual, resulting in remarkably consistent quality and universal appeal across the board.”

Featured lots from the collection include a 1910 belt-drive single, a 1924 JCDA, and a 1942 XA Military opposed-twin shaft drive built for use on the North African Front during WWII.

The Harley group is one of nearly two dozen private collections consigned to the sale. Among the others are those of J. Craig Vetter, Tim and Linda LaQuay, and Bob and Dolva Mitchell.
