About 350 vintage and antique motorcycles line the floor of the Schaumburg Convention Center just northwest of Chicago for this late spring chance for many to get a new old ride for the summer.
Many collectors are selling off some of their prized motorcycles and scooters. Michael Shoen from Phoenix has about 30 set to cross the block. Larry Pederson of Calgary has a fine collection of American-built motorcycles. Japanese units are from Peter Hendricks. New Zealander Jason Dean has many European makes to choose from.
Here are a half-doxen that caught my eye. Were I in the motorcycle market, I’d hope to be taking one or more home with me.
The auction runs Friday and Saturday.
