[motorcycle.com] - 2018 Mecum Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction to Feature Tom Reeses Coll


Tom Reese is thinning his herd of over 900 motorcycles. 175 of his antique, vintage, historic, collectible and one-of-a-kind motorcycles will be up for sale in Las Vegas later this month at the Mecum Motorcycle Auction, January 23-27. Tom is parting with some serious bikes!

Begin Press Release:

Prolific Illinois Collector to Offer 175 Motorcycles this Jan. 23-27 at South Point Casino

WALWORTH, WI – January 9, 2018 – Renown collector Tom Reese will bring 175-plus consignments of amazing motorcycles to headline this year’s 27th annual Mecum Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction. The event will feature an estimated 1,750 antique, vintage and collectible motorcycles scheduled to cross the auction block Jan. 23-27 at the South Point Arena and Priefert Pavilion.

Tom’s veracious appetite for hunting down and buying the world’s best motorcycles has led to his collection outgrowing his museum. Tom believes in giving each motorcycle its appropriate space to be presented and appreciated, along with the associated memorabilia. So in order to facilitate that approach, he has had to make the difficult decision to make some room, which means parting with some of the most historic, significant and collectible bikes that have been offered in decades. From Malcolm Smith’s first gold medal-winning ’67 Husqvarna (Lot F219) to Chris Carr’s ’93 Harley-Davidson XR750 (Lot F186) to Jeff Ward’s ’85 Works SR Kawasaki (Lot F126), the list goes on, and there is truly something for everyone in this huge offering. Auction winners will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own some of these legendary and coveted motorcycles.

The Tom Reese treasure trove of more than 900 motorcycles is Moto Armory, located in East Moline, Illinois. It has also become affectionately known as Dirt Bike Heaven to all who have visited. Aprilla to Zundapp, all off-road racing disciplines are represented, whether it’s MX, ISDT, Flat Track, Hill Climb or Trials bikes.

Tom will be present at the Las Vegas auction and is excited to meet, greet and share the stories behind the bikes with the soon-to-be new caretakers. As he often says, “the best cure for my seller’s remorse is seeing a happy buyer’s smile.” There will no doubt be miles of smiles in Las Vegas this Jan. 23-27.
