For the very first time, the world-renowned MC Collection Motorcycle Museum will offer 18 of its highly desirable collectors’ motorcycles at auction.

The Italian machines will be sold by Bonhams at the Grand Palais Sale, taking place Feb. 4 2016, in Paris, France.

The Stockholm-based museum was founded in 1999 by enthusiast Christer R. Christensson, who, together with motorcycle historian Ove Johansson, assembled a world-class collection of motorcycle masterpieces.

“This is the first time the museum has offered any of its collection at auction,” said Ben Walker, International Director for Bonhams Collectors' Motorcycles. “It is an exciting, early consignment to our Grand Palais Sale, including several lots at no reserve.”
