Most Expensive Motorcycles
the Titanium Series the Ti XX is billed as the most expensive motorcycle in the world.
1. 1907 Harley Davidson Strap Tank Single
US$$715,000 Mecum MidAmerica placed the highest price estimate of all the bikes in the Cole Collection on this Harley Davidson Strap Tank Single, expecting it would fetch estimated $800,000 to $1,000,000. The strap tank single is the popular name given to Harley Davidsons first motorcycle, a 440cc single cylinder motorcycle with Nickel plated steel straps attaching the oil and main fuel tank to the frame. These bikes are the most sought after of all Harley Davidson models and when the Otis Chandler Collection was sold in 2006, a 1907 Strap Tank Single sold for $352,000. This strap tank more than doubled that price due to its remarkably original condition.
2. 1910 Winchester 6 HP
Previously published information on this sale would appear to be incorrect. The bike did NOT sell at auction for the reported $580,000, and has been removed from our listing. One of only two examples of 200 motorcycles built by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company (the gun that won the west) still known to exist, it was belatedly discovered that a 1910 Winchester motorcycle had sold by Worldwide Auctions for US$580,000 on August 31, 2013. The bike was reported in the media as having been purchased at auction by a gun enthusiast who considered his purchase to be well bought.
3. 1929 Brough Superior SS100 Alpine Grand Sports
US$492,973 (sold for GBP
4. 1939 BMW RS255 Kompressor
US$480,000 Formerly owned by BMW works rider Walter Zeller, this machine was a private project built using many parts sourced directly from the BMW factory using Zellers influence. Though not an original works machine, this recreation of a BMW RS255 Kompressor used a genuine 1939 BMW RS255 Kompressor engine, a 1951 Rennsport plunger frame, plus numerous modifications (twin leading shoe front brake, re creation forks) which make it an authentic re creation of an RS255 Kompressor spanning the pre and post war era.
5. 1922 Brough Superior SS80
US$463,847 (sold for
6. 1926 Brough Superior SS100 Alpine Grand Sports
US$452,234 (sold for
7. 1958 Ariel 650 Cyclone
US$450,000 This bike is the limited edition 1958 Ariel Cyclone 650 which 1950s musical sensation Buddy Holly bought from Ray Millers Triumph and Ariel dealership in Dallas, Texas on May 13, 1958. The Crickets had just played a gig in Dallas and the three young and newly successful musicians (Holly, Joe Maudlin, and Jerry Allison) decided on a whim to cancel their flights and buy motorcycles for the 350 mile trip home. Bass player Joe Maudlin bought a Triumph Thunderbird, drummer Jerry Allison chose a Triumph Trophy and Holly was taken by this limited edition black and red Ariel Cyclone 650cc
8. 1939 Brough Superior SS100
US$425,943 (sold for
9. 1894 Roper Steam Motorcycle
Weve listed this motorcycle without a ranking because it didnt sell at auction, but would undoubtedly be a top 10 motorcycle if it had reached its reserve
10. 1911 Flying Merkel Board Track Racer
US$423,500 Joseph Merkel only made bikes for 15 years, and under three different names (Merkel, Merkel Light and Flying Merkel), but his motorcycles are among the most collectible in the world. This 1911 Flying Merkel board track racer presented at auction in completely original condition, and was regarded as one of the central gems of the entire E.J. Cole collection.
