Bonhams auctions old bike posters at Quail Lodge

Galleries -


A couple weeks ago, Bonhams & Butterfields held a motorcycle related auction at California’s Quail Lodge. Most of the items were business as usual; old bikes bought by older men who’ll lock them up and never ride them. But, there was also a collection of seriously cool vintage bike posters. While we’d never pay $1,586 for an old Motor-cycle Club de France ad, the auction did give us chance to get our hands on these images. Oh, and there was also the FIM race license for some guy named Steve McQueen, it fetched $42,700.
