Would you like to own a rare 1938 Vincent HRD Series A? Do you have at least $400,000 to make your dream come true?
How about a 1923 Grigg Blackburne for a mere $30,000 or more?
Liquid Asset Partners, a North American liquidation, auction, appraisal and consulting firm in Grand Rapids, Mich., is offering these machines and more to the highest bidders. Viewing is scheduled for May 22 in Grand Rapids.
Liquid Asset Partners says it is offering a rare collection of Vincent and Grigg motorcycles that were discovered in Los Angeles after the owner died.
“The headliner of the collection is the Vincent HRD Series A Twin. Known as a ‘Series A,’ it carries a prestige similar to the rarest Duesenbergs, with only 78 ever built and possibly fewer than 40 in existence today,” the company says. “Most of the surviving Series A motorcycles are in museums, with only a few coming for sale each decade.
“Built in 1938, with a top speed above 100 mph, it was a superbike with many beautiful hand made parts, which showcase the mechanical work of art,” the company says. “The engine has a wonderful V-Twin rumble and power that surprises anyone lucky enough to try it."
Liquid Asset Partners is asking for offers above $400,000.
The company is also entertaining offers above $30,000 for a rare 1923 Grigg Blackburne V-twin.
It’s “the only known survivor in the world with the 693cc V-twin,” the company says. “Only four Griggs of various models are thought to survive. The craftsmanship, attention to detail, and history of this piece of art are sure to be destined for a museum.”
Other machines being offered include a 1923 Grigg Blackburne, 1938 Vincent Series A HRD Twin, 1953 Vincent Black Shadow Series C, 1955 Vincent Victor Single Replica, 1954 Vincent Rapide D/C, 1948 Vincent Series B Rapide, a replica of a 1954 Vincent Series D Victor (Comet), and a 1950 Vincent Comet basket case.
