Motorcycle Book: Comprehensive Vintage Motorcycle Price Guide

Press Release


Center Conway, NH, March 2010—Whitehorse Press is pleased to announce publication
of the fourth annual edition of The Comprehensive Vintage Motorcycle Price Guide, compiled by members of the Vintage Japanese and European Motorcycle Club (VJEMC) who collect data from auctions, vintage dealers, marque experts, and internet sales throughout the year. Designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, it includes price data for dozens of motorcycle brands from the U.S. and around the world, from Ace to Yankee and including major marques such as BMW, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Honda, and Triumph as well as lesser known or more specialized ones like Ariel, Buell, KTM, Pope, and Whizzer.

Each year, the guide is expanded to add another year, so as to be consistent with the
VJEMC’s policy of including all motorcycles 15 years old and older in the “vintage” category. Formed by the opinions of dealers, auctioneers, collectors, and experts in the vintage field and confirmed by hundreds of hours of research and data entry, it is the most accurate price guide written for vintage motorcycles. Prices are derived from actual sales between knowledgeable enthusiasts and are given for six quality grades, ranging from rat-bike to like-new.

The guide opens with an overview of which bikes are hot and which are not, with commentary by experts on why prices are changing as they are. It also includes a full
description of how each price grade is defined and how to recognize which grade a particular bike belongs in. Printed in a handy pocket-size, it is the perfect companion to have with you at the next motorcycle rally or auction you attend, or even when you chance upon that rare specimen in a neighbor’s garage or a farmer’s barn and want to make an offer to “take-it-off-the-table” immediately. Just one insight gained from this price quide will earn back many times the book’s cost on your next sale or purchase.
