Cyclone Happens In Vegas But Won’t Stay There

Big bucks were flowing at the recent Mecum Auction in Las Vegas where the EJ Cole Motorcycle Collection was sold. Prior to the auction experts believed that an ultra rare 1907 Harley would take top honors with a projected winning bid of over $1,000,000. Ultimately it was bested by a 1915 Cyclone once owned by Steve McQueen which went for $775,000, a World Record for a Cyclone. If you look at the Top 10 results it seems like there were a lot of bidders with deep pockets spending freely:

No 1: 1915 Cyclone Board Track Racer Ex-Steve McQueen Sold for $775,000
