San Francisco - In addition to the nearly 250 antique, vintage and classic motorcycles being offered at the Bonhams Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction in January is a unique collection of mid-century motorcycle cutaway engines and components.  

The fascinating mechanical displays represent uncommon marques HMW, JLO, NSU and others, while a selection of cutaway multi-speed hubs from Sturmey-Archer round out the collection complimented by various cutaway motor wheels, single-cylinder and two-stroke engines.

These and many complete engines from Adler, Auto Wheels, FN, Harley-Davidson, Honda and Thor join an already impressive offering of motorcycling components and memorabilia that will precede the classic motorcycles on auction day.  

Renowned for motorcycles of extremely rarity, historical importance and cultural interest, the third annual Bonhams Las Vegas auction will not disappoint. In addition to those motorcycles that have already received considerable attention – the 1939 BMW RS 255 Kompressor, the 1902 Rambler Model B, the only surviving 1905 Leo Two-Cycle and Steve McQueen's 1970 Husqvarna 400 Cross – are many additional notable machines such as the 1903 Alldays & Onions, 1928 Ace Four Hemi-Head Prototype made for E. Paul du Pont, 1930 Böhmerland with Sidecar, 1978 Ducati NCR and 1989 Norton F1 Rotary Prototype, to name just a few.
