If you're in the US, you could be watching the recorded Mecum Motorcycle Auction (from Las Vegas last week) on NBCSP right now.

A nice looking all original '54GF sold for $4250. Seems like a very reasonable price.

Yep. I saw that one go and was very surprised and disappointed, really. It leaves questions: Is it a bad sign for the value of my much flashier 50/50 original '55? Is it bad sign overall for the value of A7's and A10's? Was it just a case of the wrong (or lame) buyers in the room? There was a scrambler that went for $17,000 and that one probably won't get ridden. Shame.
