Yes I went to the NPA bike auction in ATL last week,
Here are some pics....

In the lot


Going in the door this is about a qourter of the bikes, My camera doesn't have a wide enough angle to get them all .
There's many more behind me & to my right.

First we have to go to the office to get paperwork done.
outside the offices I find these...

Then it was back to the truck to unload the 8 bikes & a trike my friend John brought down in his 40foot trailer.
Here are just a few, & I got to ride all of them.
This VFR had a low front tire, so felt like it wanted to fall over when riding it.
Damn might have been fun to ride if not for that.









A friend of Johns sold two of these for $19,000 apiece.

When we arrived back at the auction on Friday morning, The auctions were already taking place.
There are so many bikes there is maybe 6 auctions going on at once.
Each last about 3 minutes. It takes about 12-14 hours to do em all.








Here's the black Fireblade. (I guess those could just be stickers, put on by someone???)



Here's something Iv never seen...


Here's what an old dude looks like with a morning hangover...


Nice bike all the same.

You need a dealers licences. My friend has a small bike shop & he buys bikes from craigs list & eBay, takes em to the auction.
Lots of times he buys bikes from the acution.
If he cant sell it here he will take it back to the acution & sell it.

Lots of great deals are to be had, They know a dealer is not going to pay top $$ becouse he has to turn around & sell it for a profit.
But if you know somone with a licences, You can get a real good deal.

See the duck Im standing next to? Its a limited edition race rep signed Ben Bostrom & Neal Hodgson.
Went for $8,000. Was like new had hardly no miles on it, Im guesing the retail on that bike was proly $16-18,000????

These bikes are brought in by dealers from acrose the south.
