Now this is a collection

I am not a fan of Richard Rawlings, but this is a cool collection on a scale I've never seen.

Thanks for posting the link. Lordy Lordy Miss Mawdy what a collection. Be nice if it went into a museum so all could enjoy it.

"Wow, so many cool bikes!" But then the rational side of my brain kicks in and I realize this is a Richard Rawlings commercial for an auction sale.

Incredible collection...not clear to me why they don't just do the auction there on site, probably could do it once a month until all of the stuff is gone.  Sure would save a bunch on logistics of moving everything.

It did come out in the vid that there are some local government concerns that tempered his decision.  -, large gatherings, special license, taxes?????
