    What's more, the market appears to be moving upwards for motorcycles manufactured in the seventies and eighties due to new blood in the collector ranks. The Las Vegas motorcycle auctions combined Mecum's four-day auction January 25 to 28 with Bonhams' one day event on January 26 for a major kickstart to the collectible motorcycle year. More than collectible motorcycles changed hands over four days, which is enough data to identify a few trends that portend what will happen over the rest of the year.

Note that Mecum, which sold the majority of the bikes in Las Vegas, cites the hammer price of each bike on its website, while Bonhams quotes the total price including commissions to the buyer.
