Just skimmed through the results. 

Good prices for the mid 70's CRs and RMs.  Those AMA and AHRMA vintage racing classes have a strong pull.

1973 Ducati GT going for $22k and it didn't look concourse!  I'm pushing my brother to restore his '75 and that number will help.  By contrast not much going on the Ducati singles.

I still think if I were betting I'd go for some of those unrestored Honda mini's and trails.  Pappa is going to keep buying those for the grand kids and they don't take up too much room.

Looks like a glut of brit bikes.

Being that old MX bikes are going up, any chance that the Yamaha MX250 that languishes in my living room has appreciated?

Didn't see any Honda Elsinores.

Haven't seen one in the flesh (aluminum) for about 20 years.

Where are they?

If it would have been a YZ though...

The $20k for the Honda RC30 caught my eye.

The  silver/blue '77 Duc 900ss with 2 miles was interesting.

Isn't that about what a new RC-30 cost?
