A 1910 Wagner drew the high bid of $64,500 at the recent MidAmerica motorcyle auction in St. Paul on September 25, easily outpacing the curious yellow Harley Model G we featured in an earlier post. Interestingly enough, the bike was restored by our friend and local restorer Jim Prosper and was featured in Hemmings Motor News in June of 2006. Jim recently won an award for best Indian motorcycle at our New England Concours D’Elegance in July at Stratton Mountain, Vermont.
Not too far behind in the bidding was this 1923 Harley-Davidson twin-cam board track racer. One of only three known to be built, it sold for $47,500.
This John Crawford-owned 1961 Harley KRTT race bike with 1963 body fairing sold for $34,000. This bike was documented as having been the bike John Crawford raced in the Daytona 200 and it was restored to its race configuration.
An interesting Big Base Indian Scout 648 also drew a lot of attention before gaveling out at $32,500.
The Harley G with sidecar did not fare as well, eventually crossing the auction block at $11,000. There were some questions as to how this package all came together, the G frame would have been for a Servicar trike and this was obviously not, but it could be the frame neck from the trike (which would have the VIN ) or the engine number was used to register this bike. Still a nice restoration of existing parts.
All in all, the auction produced over $500,000 in total sales, which included several muscle cars, scooters and a large contingency of classic bikes. Additional pictures and auction results are available on the MidAmerica website, www.midamericaauctions.com
