Hi all,
I'm passing along the info for an estate auction for someone I knew who passed away a few months ago. He was big into british motorcycles and actually owned the bike that my father bought in '78, and which I own now (the TR6R). I've seen most of this stuff in person, and most of it is pretty nice. He was a good friend of my father's and knew darn near everything about brit bikes, and I've learned a lot from him.

I'm not part of the estate sale nor am I related, just passing the opportunity along. I'm hoping to pick up something nice, or at least a box of goodies.

Gatornapper,
I believe that he has a Triple that's going to be for sale as well.......:)

I contacted the auctioneer by e-mail this morning to see whether or not they will accept bids online or by phone during the auction. I’ll report back once I hear from them.

Here is the reply I received from the auctioneer about methods for making a bid.
……………………………………………………………………………………

There will be no proxy or internet bidding. We may be able to do a phone bid for you – but not for every bike. You would have to inform us of the bike you are interested in and we can call you for that bike. BUT it is up to you to figure out the quality and shape of the bike (which you should view if possible on Friday) All sales are final and there is no chance of you backing out of payment once you see the bike and it is not what you thought. You will sign a legal document that states this. We are bringing in a bike specialist from the East Coast and I would advise you talk to him to give you a better idea of the quality of bike beforehand also.

If this is acceptable to you, then we can move ahead with the phone bid process.

Thanks
