    The Vintagent just posted on Facebook about the Bonhams auction in Vegas.

    2 circa 1910 Pierce singles.

    1 unrestored (and it looks it) sells for $130K

    1 restored older restoration bids to $38K and does not sell.

    Do the math. :deal

    So you are saying I should have left the Triumph alone?

    Damn, I never was very good at math.

    Just completed a makeover of my 1936 Panther.

    The bike has been working hard over the past couple of years, so i repainted, powder coated the frame, polished the motor, etc. new cables and many other things...:D:D

    Worlds Fastest Indain at Jacob Javits Motorcycle Show yesterday. This is the real bike not a prop or repro. Unfortunately my DSLR is in for service and the pos isn't a DSLR. Don't let anyone tell you that they are..

    Thanks, just watched the utube video and tried to freeze it to see this side of the bike better and it just didn't workout.

    Got anymore shots of Burts bike?

    Get your DSLR fixed :lol3

    I waited till after the MX season ended and I still miss it every weekend. should be back this week. Burts bike looked pretty solid I was expecting it to look real cobbed together. I had a nice chat with the owner. He say's it's about 960-980 cc's, it really did about 180 (did the movie show over 200?) and it did 160 ish unfaired. the bike never left the US after it came here. his family has owned it for about 30 years. He gave me his card which has the bike on it, Tom Hensley is the owner. I got the impression he isn't hurting for money....

    As possibly the only person on this forum who actually competed against Burt in New Zealand back in the day - last time at Oreti Beach, Southland in the early 1970s - I can tell you that back in the day (and back here, anyway) his machines looked like toilets.

    That is, the Indians and the Velocette.
