WORLD'S LARGEST ANTIQUE MOTORCYCLE AUCTION RETURNS TO LAS VEGAS, JAN. 25-28  Mecum Auction to Feature 1,000 Antique Motorcycles at South Point Casino

Walworth, Wis. – Jan. 6, 2017 – More than 1,000 antique, vintage and collectible motorcycles will cross the auction block Jan. 25-28, at the 26th annual Mecum Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction at South Point Hotel & Casino's Exhibit Hall. Consignments from across the country are highlighted by nine prestigious collections that will attract motorcycle buyers, sellers and spectators from around the world to the four-day event.

Among the featured collections are the last eight bikes owned by iconic rock 'n' roll and celebrity photographer Guy Webster that each represent the very rare, original and seemingly unobtainable vision of Italian art on two wheels. From a collection that had grown to as many as 400 motorcycles, these final eight bikes are each of early 1950s Italian vintage including a 1964 Ducati Twin Cam F-3 Racer (Lot S139), 1957 MV Augusta Squalo Formula Racer (Lot S140) and a 1956 Ceccato Grand Prix Single Cam (Lot S143).

Other collections include the nearly 80 consignments from a Major East Coast Collection, among them two 'new in crate' 1992 Harley-Davidson Daytona 50th Anniversary bikes; 24 consignments all to be sold at no reserve from the Buddy Stubbs Collection; more than 60 bikes from the LaQuay Motorcycle Collection to be sold at no reserve including many rare and desirable prewar models; and six bikes formerly part of Hollywood-icon Steve McQueen's collection.
