T190.1 2011 Yamaha YZF-R1 Special GYTR-equipped

JAY AND “KING” KENNY to auction r1 for charity Mecum designated “auctioneers” celebrity Jay Leno and three-time 500cc world champion motorcycle racer “King” Kenny Roberts will sell a one-of-a-kind Yamaha YZF-R1 motorcycle at No Reserve during the Monterey 2011 Auction. The R1 motorcycle will cross the Mecum auction block, Lot T190.1, on Thursday, Aug. 18 at 6pm PST. The special GYTR-equipped R1, ridden by “King” Kenny in several parade laps around the famed Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca circuit features a unique 50th anniversary red/white paint scheme and various genuine Yamaha custom performance accessories. “The proceeds for this Yamaha R1 will go directly to Bailey’s Café, a fantastic school of the arts for kids in the Bronx,” said Jay Leno. “Once the bidding is over, I’m sure that the performance of this R1 will only be matched by that of the kids in this great school!” 3

The John Rank Indian Collection When he isn’t occupied with his never-ending quest to reach 300 MPH at Bonneville in a modified roadster, Wisconsin’s John Rank is almost certainly exercising his considerable skills at building or restoring yet another one-of-a-kind motorcycle. Five examples of his art will be offered to the public in the form of these magnificent Indian motorcycles from that company’s glory years. Each represents the restoration craft at its zenith, as Rank explains: “All five were highly original to begin with, and they all feature original Indian engines, sheet metal and finishing methods. There’s no powder coating, no clear coat - everything is exactly as it should be.” High praise indeed, coming as it does from one of America’s leading restorers of historically significant motorcycles.

The Michael Taggart Motorcycle Collection ALL TO BE OFFERED AT NO RESERVE Mike Taggart’s enthusiasm for powered vehicles seems to be a matter of genetics. He saw his first Indy 500 as a boy when the family bakery business sponsored several drivers (His grandfather’s creation of the colorful Wonderbread brand was inspired by the sight of thousands of balloons rising into the sky at the start of the race, which caused him to utter, “What a wonder!”) The Californian’s collection of cars, motorcycles and hydroplanes, which is spread through ten garages in two states, all share one very important aspect: each one is a purposeful machine whose nature is dictated by that special combination of form and function. That approach is especially evident in Taggart’s motorcycle collection, a select gathering focusing mainly on British sports and racing bikes, significantly Norton and BSA, two long-lived series that included some of the fastest bikes of the 1950s. Over 50 of these prized machines from the Taggart Collection will be featured on Thursday, including a total of 8 BSA Gold Stars, an offering not to be missed.

The BARRY SOLOMON Motorcycle Collection ALL TO BE OFFERED AT NO RESERVE Barry Solomon’s childhood dream was to own a “Whizzer,” a motorized scooter built by a small Los Angeles company whose specialty was manufacturing carburetors and aircraft parts. The family budget precluded such a purchase, so Solomon had to content himself with the time-honored childhood practice of attaching playing cards to the front fork of his bicycle to recreate that motorcycle sound. Today Solomon is a successful businessman, and his beautifully restored Baby Blue 1948 Whizzer is just one of the highlights of his large and fascinating collection of antique bikes and motorcycles, which together serve as a rolling narrative of early motorcycle history and development. Mecum will offer 73 rare motorcycles from the Barry Solomon Collection on Thursday, August 18, presenting collectors with a marvellous entrée into cycling’s pioneer era.
