Greetings from Classic Motorcycle Consignments!

We want to take this opportunity to thank those that called and asked for information about bikes presented at the auctions in Las Vegas and let you know about our Newest Arrivals.

Both Las Vegas events were quite successful with over 2,000 bikes on display and 95% being sold. Tim was quite busy answering the phone and assessing bikes for clients. Nice to get a firsthand view of the bike and not count solely on the pictures in the catalog or on the internet.

 

We successfully bid on 4 of the 25 bikes we reviewed. Clients were talked out of bidding wars on two occasions and we advised them not to bid at all on 5 others.

 

Yes, Tim will be there again in June so that you do not have to fly in and spend hotel time and social time to look at your next investment.

 

Please give us a call ahead of time so that we can do a great job assisting you in the upcoming auction in June.

NEW ARRIVALS…
We have several new arrivals coming in for consignment..

the three remaining 1942 Indians from the original collection of four

The collection was sold at a good price and the buyer will keep the 1942 Four and possibly the 1942 Sport Scout.
The 1942 Chief and the 1942 JR Scout will be relisted for immediate sell.


…… You will also see 
a 1911 Indian Twin(Restored),
a 1912 Indian Twin (original paint),
1959 Harley FLHF(possible original paint),

a 1947 Indian Chief road machine (12 volt and 4 speed),
an original 1947 Indian Chief ,
and a few others….

We hope to have the incoming bikes posted for sale by the end of next week, so please review the site often and subscribe to the newsletter so that you get first view of the opportunities.

We see an increase in the buying of classic motorcycles and strong prices. We are also receiving quite an increase of bikes for sale. Thanks for all your help! If you know of anyone holding bikes or parts and they do not want to go straight to the eBay way, we are glad to help.

Don’t forget to check out the three gorgeous Knucklehead Bobbers ! They remain available and are all great lookers and superb runners!

This 1946 Harley Davidson EL Knucklehead Bobber is an incredible motorcycle! It started life at the factory, then morphed into a Bobber. It’s been featured in two different magazines due to its incredible beauty and ability!…

READ MORE…

This 1946 Harley Davidson EL Knucklehead Bobber was purchased new by the original owner in California. He rode the hell out of it, including to Hollister in 1947. The second owner bought the bike in the early 60’s when his buddy transferred to the big house for life…

On the Road Again!

Hello Classic Motorcycle Consignments Newsletter Subscribers!

Just a quick note to thank you for looking and increasing our subscriber list. We have had a great year and would not be here without you. It is time for me to get on the road and do my Vagabond 2017 Tour.

My wife Janis and I started out in the RV on May 30 and we will be on the road until October. No, not really a vacation, just a movable office with the ability to seek out great motorcycles and motorcycle events for our customers. Follow us on Facebook to get the latest info on our tour and tour locations. The Office is currently in Kanab UT, headed for Denver. We will then mosey up to Montana and through Idaho and Washington before pointing south for Home in Orange County.

If you are near our vagabond route and want to say hi or have an inventory that needs to be itemized and documented or offered for sale, give us a call or email and we will set an appointment to head your way. We did spot a nice looking 1974 BMW R 90/6 in Cedar City, UT if anyone is interested.

We’ve visited friends and clients in central California and came away with a 1971 Honda 175 for our RV motorcycle. The Dixon AMCA Swap Meet was a lot of fun and while there we actually consigned a 1914 Excelsior Single (older restoration) that will be on the site soon and we also picked up a 1911 Harley 7A, all original including the paint! Very cool items on it and the engine number is “7A” which is rumored to be THE bike used for the ads! We are going to do research on this and see what we can find.If you have input on this 1911 Harley Davidson, please drop us a line at Tim@ClassicMotorcycleConsignments.com or directly on Facebook for all to discuss.

So, possibly we will see you on the road or enjoy your comments on Facebook as we cruise through the west picking those hard to find motorcycles and motorcycle parts!

A Correct 1941 Indian Scout 741 Military Motorcycle…
This 1941 Indian Scout 741 Military Motorcycle has been reviewed by an Indian Specialist and he has pointed out many items on this motorcycle that are 1941 production only. See more photos and details HERE.

 

This 1941 Indian Military Scout appears to be a restored motorcycle with fresh paint and engine number indicating a case replacement. This motorcycle was recently sold by a museum in Ohio where it had resided for 20 plus years.

 

Sold on  California title, this motorcycle is again ready for show and go.

A Black Shadow Engine Installed in a Rapide Chassis…

 

This 1952 Vincent Black Shadow Rapide Motorcycle was acquired by the current owner in 1998.  According to the previous owner, he had the bike for 30 years.

 

This 1952 Vincent had a genuine Shadow engine with an earlier Rapide frame. The bike had been partly “lightningized” by a previous owner.

 

See more photos and details HERE.

 

Prior to purchase, the current owner had the bike inspected by an expert who confirmed that it was not an original Black Shadow, but a Black Shadow engine installed in a Rapide chassis.
Most recently, the bike was serviced in Orange, CA. This Vincent is of original parts and it is a road machine. It is ready to ride and has serviced regularity.

 

This Vincent has a clear California Title that shows Frame number and engine number. It is currently registered for the road.

This is an exact reproduction of the original, Mesinger Tandem Seat. An original assembly was found a few years back and a decision was made to manufacture correct, new assemblies of the Mesinger Tandem Seat. The original was taken apart and each piece exactly measured and reproduced.

There are 84 handmade parts to the Tandems. After manufacturing the forming dies and tools to form the parts it took 42 man hours to make each seat frame and seat. MADE IN THE USA!   The material that is used to make them; 1-1/8 x 3/16 Round edge flat stock, is no longer available. A Steel Rolling Mill made a special run of the flat stock in a 3,000 foot run.   The Parts were cut on an iron worker then holes punched and bars rounded with a forming die, exactly like Mesinger would have made them so that the pieces have the same look as the original.

The frame is put together with the same rivets and round head bolts as the original. The foot board rubbers were cut out of flat rubber stock and hand grip rubber pieces were molded in rubber molds as the originals. MADE IN THE USA! 

The original Seat Pan was 3D scanned and stamped out of the same thickness sheet metal as the original to the exact dimensions of the original. MADE IN THE USA! 

The ORIGINAL:

Harley, Indian, Henderson, Cleveland, Excelsior Super X and Big X would have used the same size Tandem seat frame back in the day (from 1920 on the first scout to 1949 on the rigid frame Harley’s). Harley Riders wanting to ride double would have purchased the frame from a repair shop or second hand as they bolt right on.

The Seat itself could have been purchased separately by customers of Indian, Harley, Cleveland, and Excelsior. They could have been used as a rider seat, probably most likely on bobbers of the day; but not usually on a stock model.  The rider seats of the day were longer and had a shorter back.

The exciting thing about the Tandems is the increased family involvement in the sport!  I hope we can promote as many as possible in a worldwide market.

Now available through Classic Motorcycle Consignments.

The Homer Knapp Hollywood Machine and Motorcycles liquidation was a success! Thanks to all who came out to assist in identifying items and buying items!

________________________

Do you have a will or living trust? Do you have an inventory of your motorcycles and vehicles that your family can use in case of your early demise?

This liquidation was very difficult because it had to go to probate in California first. And, there was no inventory of items which allowed for the disappearance of many valuable items and tools. Many people told the estate that “Homer said that this would be mine when he died”. Well, absent a written statement or a bill of sale or an accurate will, the Estate owns everything and must report it to the state.

Estate liquidations are becoming a large business for Classic Motorcycle Consignments. Please, do not put your family in the probate abyss! Give us a call and we will be happy to assist you in a proper inventory of your assets.

In Memoriam…

Charles “Chuck” Vernon – 1920-2015

SoCal AMCA is saddened by the loss of one of our founding fathers. On October 6, 2015, Charles “Chuck” Vernon died at home at the age of 95. Chuck just plain ole used his physical body up. His son, Tom Vernon, shared with us that he had been sleeping the majority of the time the past few months, and did so when his son took him out for a car ride two days before his passing. Respecting Chuck’s wishes, the family had a quiet graveside ceremony.

Message from Tom Vernon:

“My father passed away yesterday after a significant decline in his health this year.  I know that he was loved and respected by many of the members of our Club and the larger motorcycle community. Please pass along the family’s appreciation of the kind sentiment we have received.”

Chuck Vernon was a founding father of the SoCal Chapter of the AMCA, which was started in 1963 and became the seventh chapter to receive a charter in 1972. Chuck was the president numerous times along with Max Bubeck, Gary Breylinger, John Eagles and many other motorcycle leaders. Chuck was responsible for the annual La Mirada Swap Meet and Show, which later became the El Camino Swap Meet. The El Camino Swap Meet was the example used by past AMCA President Bob McClean to start the Chief Blackhawk Chapter’s Davenport Swap Meet in Iowa, the concept for the national swap meets.

Chuck’s wealth of knowledge on motorcycles was immense and yet just a small part of his vast ability and knowledge base. Go to this Cycle World article  from 2010, which best describes his passion for education and information about this passion for Crockers and motorcycles.

Chuck was an icon in the antique motorcycle world. He will be missed by all. God Speed Chuck! We know you are united with your loving wife in the best place of all.

Tim Graber
President, SoCal AMCA

 

 

Classic Motorcycle Consignments is proud to announce that we are liquidating the motorcycle assets from the Danny Peterson Estate. Danny was an excellent track rider, having schooled under his father “Pete” Peterson (national plate holder) and Bill Brownell from Chico, CA. Danny became an excellent mechanic and he purchased the assets of Bill Brownell Triumph and a few smaller Triumph dealers in the Montana area.

The entire motorcycle parts inventory will be sold as a group. The shop machines and tools (including Triumph specialty tools) will be sold as a group or individual sales may be considered.

Individual sales will immediately be considered on the complete motorcycles and the rolling chassis’ in storage. Please click on the OneDrive link included below to get an idea of the assets available.

Along with the entire parts inventory of the shop, there are 45 used Triumphs and BSA’s that were found in storage. These bikes range from complete bikes to simple rolling chassis, including a few set up for track on Trackmaster frames. There are also 10 bikes ready for the road including a 1918 Indian Power Plus, a couple of BMW’s, and a couple of Triumphs.

Again, please review the files in the OneDrive link below if you want to preview the lot.

Bikes will eventually be placed on the Classic Motorcycle Consignments site for purchase.
