Massive Motorcycle Public Auction Vintage Bikes!!

Hey all I came upon this neat auction of Bikes. I have no affiliation, just passing it along...

Some of you can do some early X-Mas shopping for youselves or that special someone. Some info below:


Public Auction Sale


MOTORCYCLE COLLECTION

Saturday, November 21st at 11:00 AM

Preview: 8:00 – 11:00 AM, Morning of Sale

The Bettencourt Collection
106 Hale Street, Bridgewater, MA

CLICK HERE for a listing of bikes and condition ratings.

Over 180 Classic Motorcycles from the Bettencourt collection, which started in the 1950’s. This collection is being sold at NO RESERVE to help Dave Bettencourt fight Leukemia. Large Honda Collection from 1959 to 1984, Norton, BSA, Bultaco, CZ (including Dick’s “Red Tank” CZ), Triumph, Harley-Davidson, Indian, Suzuki, Ossa, Yamaha, Jawa, Francis Barnett, Rickman, Vespa, Laverda, Yankee, NSU, MZ, Bridgestone, Montessa and Bicycles. Conditions include: Low Mileage Originals, Restored Bikes, Average Bikes and Project Bikes

AUCTIONEER’S NOTE: I have known this collection for over thirty years. Dick helped me start our vintage auction business by selling me some machines over 20 years ago. When David became the curator for the collection, he added many of the bikes he enjoyed while growing up in the motorcycle business.

There are some of the very old machines from the forty’s that Dick put away a long time ago. There is an extensive Honda collection that starts with one of the first Honda 300 Dreams brought into the US in 1959. We have a bunch of the early 50cc’s including step-thrus, QA50s, Z50s, MR50s, 70’s, Trail 90s, and an early 125 SS. There is a good selection of the 250 and 305 Dreams, CB’s and Scramblers. There are 400 and 750 single cam Super Sports, a perfect ’71 CB 750, some Goldwings and CBX’s, right up to Dick’s personal VF 1000R. Bettencourt’s sold BSA’s, and there is a good selection of those, as well as a few Triumph’s and Norton’s.

The shop has always been heavily involved in racing and we have both “red tank” and “coffin tank” CZ’s, Bultacos Elsinors and others. Dave has a nice Harley-Davidson CR Café and a perfect Laverda SFS, as well as some of the small Harleys. The collection is diverse and there will be something for everyone from perfect bikes to projects. We will have a complete list and photos on our website.

David has helped countless racers and motorcycle events over the years. To pay him back we need you folks to come out and buy these bikes to help raise money to help Dave beat Leukemia. Most of the folks working the auction will be volunteers. Thank you and we hope to see you there!
Jerry Wood

JWood&Co Auction

What a array of machines . They really run the gamet as far as condition, make and size. Looks like a bit of everything. I'm intregued by that bike with the rotary engine. Is that a Hercules? One that that strikes me as odd -- if I were promoting this, I'd be sure to provide decent pix. The ones that have been put up are laughable .
