When a motorcycle auction comes around, enthusiasts usually need to mentally prepare themselves to spend large wads of money on the classic or retro motorbike of their dreams.
However that isn't necessarily the case with this particular motorcycle auction being held in New Zealand. A number of quite legendary motorbikes are being auctioned off at hugely discounted rates due to the current state of the exchange rate between the New Zealand and American dollars. This effectively means that motorbike collectors can snag some true once-in-a-lifetime deals.
Among the highlight offerings at this auction are six Bultaco road racing motorbikes, including the bike used by Ginger Malloy when he finished second at the 1970 World 500cc Championships. Other bikes include a 1950 Vincent Black Shadow and a 1974 Ducati 750 Sport.
This is a truly impressive roster of classic motorbikes, and any collector worth his salt will want to get their bids in.
