When I lived in a small town in
Even though I moved away, that group in
It might be Daytona for bike week in
But this gets me to the subject of motorcycle collectibles. They often consist of beautiful girls, fast bikes and a way of life that is beyond most people’s imagination. Motorcycles are no longer just for the misfits but they are now owned by doctors, lawyers, school teachers and even some insurance executives and they are the ones I know.
When I enter my friend’s office there is no doubt he is into motorcycles. Models of several of his bikes sit on the desk and the walls are covered with pictures of his trips plus a cabinet that is filled with other memorabilia. He has become a devoted collector. But what do the collectors look for?
Here is just a short list: old goggles, leathers and gloves. The more decorative they are, the better. Then we turn to ads, manuals, decals, movie posters showing bikes and signed photos of people with their bikes. There are collectors that just want watch fobs, metals, trophies and pins, while others search for the older bikes themselves that can become quite expensive. You will never lack for the opportunity to make money if some great motorcycle collectibles come your way.
