By now you’ve probably heard about the Legend of the Motorcycle Concours d’Elegance in Half Moon Bay, Calif. This will be the third year for the show, and one of the highlights of the show is always the auction hosted by International auctioneers Bonhams & Butterfields.

Featured in the auction this year is the personal collection of Michael Corbin, founder of the prominent seat manufacturer Corbin. Over the years as his company grew into one of the world's biggest and most respected businesses of its kind, Mr. Corbin passionately assembled a select collection of unique, meticulously restored motorcycles. While the focus of this 20-bike collection is the legendary American make Indian — with the headliner surely being Steve McQueen's 1940 Indian Scout — other makes are also represented. Highlights include:


1906 Indian Camelback
1912 Indian 7hp
1929 Indian-Crocker OHVC
1933 Crocker Speedway Replica
1940 Indian Four
1942 Indian Scout
1948 Indian Chief
1951 Indian Brave
1970 Indian "Clymer" Enfield
1982 Harley-Davidson XR750 Racer
