AMA Hall of Famer Gavin Trippe has been chosen to lead
Mecum Auctions' new motorcycle division.
 

Industry-leading auction company Mecum Auctions has demonstrated its expertise in bringing buyers and sellers together for more than two decades. Now, that passion has expanded into another market niche as Mecum launches its new motorcycle division to offer significant consignments for the collector motorcycle industry.

Mecum’s motorcycle division, led by American Motorcyclist Association Hall of Famer Gavin Trippe, will consign and market world-class collector motorcycles during upcoming auctions, including Dana Mecum’s 24th Annual Original Spring Classic Auction, May 17-22, in Indianapolis, Ind. and the Monterey Auction, Aug. 18-20, in Monterey, Calif.

"The motorcycle fraternity has been largely ignored in the current auction market, but now there will be a major platform to expose rare and valuable bikes to collectors," said Trippe. “The beauty of collecting bikes is that five bikes can occupy the same space as one car and you can ride many of them, or even hang one on the wall of a 'man cave' or corporate office!  Even the most expensive motorcycles can be affordable and serve as great investments. I am excited to work with Dana Mecum, an avid collector himself, and commit 100% to this new Mecum division.”

A legendary motocross and road race promoter, Trippe brings more than 45 years of motorcycle knowledge to the Mecum team. He previously organized and executed the 2006 and 2007 Monterey Classic Bike Auctions, having worked with many of the top collectors both in the U.S. and Europe. Trippe also helped with such collections as The Otis Chandler Collection and the famed Barber Motorsports Vintage Museum in Alabama, home of one of the best collections in the world.

With the launch of this new division, motorcycle collectors can expect to see noteworthy American and European motorcycles of all kinds cross the Mecum auction block throughout 2011. Contact Gavin Trippe at gavin@mecum.com to consign your classic motorcycle today.
