If you can’t make it to Laguna Seca for the Monterey Classic Bike Auction you can still bid in realtime. NPA (National Powersport Auctions) will simulcast the auction live on the Internet for pre-registered virtual bidders.
From the press release:
NPA Simulcast™ will transport the Monterey Classic Bike Auction beyond the confines of Portola Plaza into the homes of motorcycle collectors worldwide. NPA Simulcast seamlessly blends live floor bids with “real time” on-line bidding delivered via the internet from pre-registered “virtual bidders”. With a simple click of a computer mouse, virtual bidders can purchase the collectible motorcycles of their dreams, just as if they were in attendance at the live auction in Monterey. NPA Executive VP, Justyn Amstutz, offers this view. “All of us at NPA are rabid motorcycling enthusiasts so it was a natural to partner up with the Monterey Classic Bike Auction. It will be a bit different than the “dealer only” auctions we produce every month and rather than wholesaling 1000’s of motorcycles in a single sale we’ll focus on a few dozen and this will be the first time we’ve had a chance to show collectors what a state-of-the-art auction is all about.>
Among the many new and pre-owned motorcycles being offered at the Monterey Classic Bike
Auction are a 1961 Honda RC162 Mike Hailwood Replica, one of only three machines ever constructed. A 140-mph…45-horsepower…280 lbs., 4-cylinder, 4-stroke, 250cc machine and the spectacular KTM 950 Supermoto. A motorcycle that is creating the latest buzz for an entire new genre of street performance. Air-freighted direct to Monterey from the KTM factory in Matighoffen, Austria with the pedigree of a thoroughbred: KTM factory certification and first of it’s kind documentation.
