Most expensive motorcycle ever sells at auction for £605k View photos Rare British motorcycle from 1951 has become the most expensive to ever sell at auction. A 1951 Vincent Black Lightning has sold for a record-breaking £659,729 at an auction in Las Vegas.
It is just one of 33 examples and was hand-built in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, by special order for Australian racer Tony MacAlpine. This original spec, unrestored model is just one of 19 left in existence and has only covered 5,281 miles.
At the Bonhams auction in Las Vegas, cheer and applause were heard as bidding finally ended at $929,000 (£659,729).
