Much of the mo­tor­cy­cle in­ter­est at Me­cum’s Au­gust sale in Mon­terey, Cal­i­for­nia, cen­tre on the col­lec­tions of for­mer rock and pop mu­si­cian John ‘J’ Geils – who died in April this year – and Har­ley­david­son and In­dian col­lec­tor James Gior­gio Snr.

While the J Geils col­lec­tion ma­jors on cars, there’s also a 1970 Du­cati 350 Desmo for sale, said to be in ter­rific con­di­tion, a 1977 MV Agusta 125SS and one of just 80 Benelli Sei models im­ported to the USA. This is in café racer trim and is said to have been Geils’ favourite mo­tor­cy­cle. The 1903 In­dian Camel­back Sin­gle from the Gior­gio col­lec­tion (above) typ­i­fies the qual­ity of the vin­tage en­thu­si­ast’s ma­chines. Claimed to be the old­est un­re­stored In­dian in ex­is­tence, it’s sure to pro­voke strong bid­ding.
