“Bike sells for nearly $1m”
A rare Harley-Davidson motorcycle built in 1908 has become the most expensive motorcycle ever sold at auction.
The Strap Tank Harley-Davidson was sold for $935,000 last month in Las Vegas.
The bike was named Strap Tank because its oil and fuel tanks are attached to the frame with nickel straps. The bike is one of only 12 such models in the world.
The record-breaking bike had many of its original parts, making it even more rare, said Greg Arnold, Motorcycle Division Manager at Mecum Auctions.
“We marketed the bike well and Harley is by far the most famous American motorcycle brand. We had a feeling it would do well in auction,” he said.
