Re: Lee Hartung Collection

I never get tired of watching this and drooling. How could one man assemble such a collection? Bet his wife kept telling him to get it cleaned up and out of here..

Re: Lee Hartung Collection

I saw an extended cable TV show about this a few months back. The guys kept pulling out vintage bikes and getting them started after a few minutes of cleanout/cleanup. Amazing.

I'd like to hear what the total auction value of his collections were.

$3.9 million sitting in sheds, covered in dust. Amazing.
