Vintage / Classical Motorcycle Auctions

Less than one year after its formation, Auctions America by RM, a subsidiary of the world’s largest collector car auction house – RM Auctions, is expanding to include a vintage motorcycle division with the acquisition of Bator Vintage Motorcycle Auctions. The well-respected classic and antique motorcycle expert, Glenn Bator, will lead the new division for Auctions America.

The company will present its first extensive bike offering at its second annual ‘Auburn Fall Collector Car Auction’ scheduled September 1 – 4, 2011 at its 235-acre Auburn (Ind.) Auction Park headquarters during the famed ‘Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival’ weekend.

Donnie Gould (President, Auctions America by RM) says: “The establishment of a dedicated motorcycle division for our company is in direct response to our clients’ interests and requests. We’re thrilled to have Glenn Bator on board. His extensive industry knowledge will make Auctions America by RM events the premier venues for both buyers and sellers of classic two wheelers.”

Glenn Bator says: “I am extremely pleased to be joining the Auctions America by RM team. The union of RM’s excellent organization and customer base with Bator’s loyal customers will no doubt produce world-class vintage motorcycle auctions.”

Glenn Bator has been restoring all types of motorcycles for a number of years, with a specialty in pre and post World War I American machines. In addition to his work restoring bikes, Glenn, along with his wife Deni, has operated the long-standing Bator group of companies.

Glenn is known for having organized motorcycle shows and staging auctions at such prime venues as the Barber Vintage Festival and the Daytona Classic Motorcycle Auction held during “Bike Week.” Previously, Glenn held the position of curator, restorer and general manager for the Otis Chandler Vintage Museum .
