Bator Project Bike Auction 

Glenn Bator at Bator Auctions has announced a new auction to be held during the 6th Annual Barber Vintage Festival. Dubbed the “Parts & Project Bikes” auction, this new addition to the lineup of events at the Barber Festival will be held Friday, Oct. 8, starting at 2 p.m.

This should be a pretty interesting opportunity to acquire a new project bike or parts for an existing project. “We’ll have a bunch of stuff, including Yamaha RD350 and RD400 basket cases, engines, plus a huge collection of parts from Vintage Cosmo, which was Cosmopolitan Motors before they went out of business,” says Glenn Bator of Bator Auctions. “The Vintage Cosmo stuff is all NOS; Grimeca brakes, aluminum rims, all kinds of high-quality vintage stuff, and all at no reserve.” And it won’t be just a few items. “It’ll be tonnage, no doubt,” Bator says. Over 50 project bikes have already been consigned for the Friday auction.

Anyone can bring parts to sell at the Friday auction, and Bator says he’s inviting swap meet vendors who need to pare down their inventory to bring their parts to the auction. Parts and non-complete basket cases will have a 20 percent seller’s premium, and rolling complete project bikes will have a 10 percent seller's premium. Buyers will pay a 10 percent premium on everything. Taxes will be collected on parts only.

And Friday is just the beginning, as Saturday will see Bator Auctions hosting their second Barber International Auction at the Barber Vintage Festival, again at 2 p.m. Bator says they have 70 bikes listed already, and he expects that number to rise to 150 by auction day.
