This 1949 Indian Scout Super Sport 249 is finished in yellow and white and powered by a 436cc vertical twin paired with a 4-speed transmission. Purchased by the seller approximately a year ago from the widow of an Indian collector, the bike was removed from several years of storage and recommissioned by a specialist in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The work reportedly included installation of a new battery, clutch cable, clutch plate, chain, and spark plugs as well as an oil change. This Scout shows just under 1,700 miles, 80 of which have been added by the seller since 2017. It is offered with three manuals, a period parts catalog, and a clean Oklahoma title in the seller’s name. Indian focused on a line of smaller-capacity bikes after WWII in an effort to compete with the British makes that were becoming popular in the US. This Scout is finished in yellow and white with two-tone pinstriping. Several chips and areas of corrosion are shown in the photos below. Chrome and aluminum surfaces have reportedly been polished by the seller, and the rear footpeg rubbers were replaced in June 2017. The Super Sport was an accessorized touring version of the 249 Scout that could be optioned with saddle bags, a windshield, spot lights, crash bars, and a center stand. This example also wears an additional Indian fender light and fender tip embellishments. The right saddle bag has several cuts and a scrapes in the leather. Chrome wire wheels wear older Cheng Shin tires. The grey faced 120-mph speedometer includes an odometer showing less than 1,700 miles, approximately 80 of which have been added by the seller.

Custom 1948 Harley-Davidson EL61

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1948 Harley-Davidson EL61 was inherited by the seller from the estate of his father 10 years ago and subsequently rebuilt in the style of an early post-war bobber by Deuce H Moto and Walker Smith Speed Shop. The bike is powered by a rebuilt 69ci V-twin with a 4-speed hand-shifted transmission and features burnished metal bodywork, an oil rubbed frame, and custom leather seat in addition to an upgraded carburetor, intake manifold, clutch, exhaust, and brakes. Dubbed “The Ace Of Burden,” this Panhead custom has been ridden approximately 100 miles since completion of the build and is offered with a clean Virginia title in the seller’s name. The build took placed on a modified 1952 hardtail frame fitted with a small fuel tank and abbreviated rear fender. Finishes consist of hand-burnished iron, Parkerized steel, and aluminum with brass, bronze, nickel, and stainless trim. The 18″ wheels are the only painted items and are mounted with Firestone tires. The headlight is made of cast brass with a weathered patina, and a tail light is mounted to the left of the rear axle. The springer forks are replica Harley-Davidson XA units, while braking is from a Suzuki GSX-R master cylinder mounted under the transmission, a hydraulic rear disc operated by the stock mechanical linkage, and a replica front drum. The throttle and front brake cables have been replaced. The custom leather seat wears a skull motif, and a canvas tool bag is attached to the frame. The seller estimates that fewer than 100 miles have been covered since completion of the build, though no instrumentation is provided. The Panhead V-twin was rebuilt with sleeved barrels and polished oversized pistons to increase displacement from 61 to 69 cubic inches. The cylinder heads were ported and polished, and the valve guides, springs, and collars modified for modern valves and seals. Induction is via an S&S Super E Shorty carburetor with a deflector fabricated from a sawmill blade and mounted to a Harolds “Panifold” intake with modern O-rings. The short exhaust pipes were reportedly matched to the intake and are covered in header wrap. The 4-speed transmission is a 1953 unit that was rebuilt, modified for improved lubrication, and fitted with a jockey shifter fabricated from a vise handle. The foot-operated clutch is a diaphragm unit mounted in the stock basket, while both chain sprockets were chosen to achieve an ideal RPM range for the 18″ wheels. A write-up from the seller describing the project in detail is provided in the gallery below.

No Reserve: 1967 Ducati Monza Junior

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1967 Ducati Monza Junior was reportedly placed in storage by its original owner in 1968 after three unsuccessful attempts to pass the Wisconsin motorcycle license test. The bike was parked in a barn until the passing of its 87-year-old original owner, and was acquired by the seller six months ago with 444 indicated miles. This Monza features a 156cc OHC single with a 4-speed transmission and is sold with a clean Wisconsin title in the seller’s name. The bike has reportedly not been cleaned since removal from the barn, wearing over 50 years of dust as well as corrosion on the red paint and chrome. The seller reports that the inside of the fuel tank appears clean and the period Pirelli tires hold air. Accessories include a tail rack, frame-mounted crash guards, Ducati script foot pegs, and Silentium muffler. Instrumentation consists of a headlight-mounted speedometer, two warning lights, and a 5-digit odometer showing 444 miles. The factory-supplied key can be seen in the ignition switch. The 4-stroke 156cc single features an overhead camshaft driven by a bevel gear and originally produced 9.5 horsepower. The seller notes that the engine turns and shows compression, but no attempt has been made to start it.

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1968 Simson Spatz SR4-1 has been in the seller’s collection for 9 years and used sparingly. Produced in East Germany and sold new in West Germany, little is known of the early history but the current mileage is 571KM (354 miles) of which the seller has added less than 10 miles. Powered by a 50cc two-stroke single with a two speed transmission, the seller reports that the bike has been well maintained by his personal mechanic and is mechanically sound. This Spatz is sold with a clean Indiana title in the seller’s name. The Spatz or “Sparrow” was produced in the city of Suhl in East Germany and offered from 1964-70. Finished in a deep red and grey two tone, the finish is believed to be original and shows several chips and scratches as well as some age related corrosion. An optional tail rack is fitted, and a minor tear can be seen on the left side of the seat. The wheels also have some corrosion on the spokes and wear older tires. Due to licensing restrictions in West Germany, bikes distributed to the West were marketed as mopeds and sold without a horn or battery. The horn was replaced with a bicycle bell and a 15 watt headlight was fitted that could be run from engine power. The odometer indicates 571KM (354 miles) which is believed to be accurate. The 50cc two stroke single was limited to 40km hour (25MPH) for the West, and is coupled to a 2-speed transmission. The Spatz was fitted with either pedals or a kick starter and this example is fitted with the latter. The seller reports that the bike is fully functional and all necessary work has been performed by the seller’s personal mechanic. The fuel tank shows age related scratches, and the cap commemorates the Silver Vase awarded to the Simson team during the 1964 International Six Days Trial.
