My buddy picked up an ex-military Indian Scout owned at one time by Steve McQueen. I never knew that Indian painted some of their WWII bikes in gloss olive drab (parade duty?) and the others in flat olive drab. Also snagged a mint Triumph Silver Jubilee with under 3,000 original miles. The 10 to 15% fees going to the auction houses can really add to the bottom line on some of these acquisitions. The 1939 BMW Kompressor that sold for $480,000.00 in the parking lot saved a ton of fees.
