Several Years ago, as a devoted member of American Legacies, LLC as well as a member of their Board of Directors, I spent in excess of $10,000 at an estate auction to purchase a variety of antique motorcycle literature.

The literature ranged from original sales booklets from 1904 to the mid 1950's Indian material as well as old Harley brochures and other brands of Motorcycles.

This books were then donated to American Legacies for historical preservation.

However, while recently cleaning out some storage totes in my home, I ran across a tote that came from that auction containing "Plastic Models" of various Motorcycles and even a few scooters that I did not know I had.

So, my current plan is to take them to an auction house on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, just to get rid of them. However, instead of letting a bunch of strangers have them, I figured I would give OBRC members and even members of our Facebook group a chance to see if they wanted them.

Therefore, I am posting some images of them here and if anyone would be interested in buying the entire collection, please contact me or post your comments as a response to this posting, to let me know how much you would be willing to pay for the entire collection.

Since I will pay all shipping charges, I will also need to what country and state or province you live in.

I might also mention that all proceeds from this sale will be donated to American Legacies, LLC.

This is the only model I found that was damaged, It has one handlebar missing

I did NOT inspect every detail of all the rest, but no other item displayed any damage that was obvious to me. If you want me to take a close up of any other bike, please let me know.
