Riding into History Silent Auction Motorcycles

Riding Into HistoryNewsletter

This year we have two motorcycles that were donated to the Riding Into History Silent Auction - these bikes will open for bidding starting at The Grand Marshal Dinner on Friday night April 19th.  You can see and bid on both these bikes at the Grand Marshal Dinner but they will also be on display and open for bidding at the Classic Car Museum during the Concours until 1:00pm Saturday April 20th.  Here is some basic information about each bike:

1994 BMW K75 RT Police Edition

1994 BMW K75 RT Police Edition.

This motorcycle is a BMW K75 RT Model which has a full fairing plus the Police Edition options and a custom seat.  The RT model options include full instrumentation/gauges, ABS, heated grips, engine protection bars and power windscreen. The Police Edition items include the rear electronics/storage compartment, City Case side bags and a rear set of chrome crash bars. This bike is a very well-maintained motorcycle with only 34k miles. It has recently been serviced and is ready to ride. If you are not familiar with the BMW K75 model line, it was a cutting edge, water cooled, three cylinder motorcycle that was developed in the mid 1980s that now has a cult-like following of loyal, high-mileage riders. They are often referred to as the million-mile motorcycle (maybe more accurately the million-kilometer motorcycle). Prized for their legendary reliability, durability, ease of maintenance and super-smooth running "flying brick" engine design, this transversely mounted  DOHC 750cc engine produces 75HP and was one of the earliest motorcycles to incorporate ABS and Electronic Fuel Injection. You don't see many of these police editions for sale very often and seldom with this low mileage (this bike never actually saw Police Duty and was always privately owned). This a true classic BMW Motorcycle that can last forever.

2006 Vespa GT 200 Scooter

2006 Vespa GT 200 Scooter.

This 200cc SOHC scooter was the first generation of the modern big-frame scooters from Vespa with a claimed top speed of 74 mph. It has classic Italian Scooter styling with 12" wheels and automatic transmission. It had a recent refresh service just a couple hundred miles back including new Malossi shocks front and rear, variator/clutch transmission service, brake service, new mirrors, valve adjustment, carburetor rebuild, new battery and Michelin tires. With only 12k miles on the clock, it is ready to ride and is a very reliable, fun-to-ride, economical scooter.

All proceeds from the sale of these bikes goes to our designated Charity K9's for Warriors.
