WHAT amounts to probably the most valuable motorcycle collection in the world went under the hammer last weekend. 

Only the rarest or rare machines make it into the legendary bike collection of American collector EJ Cole, so it’s no surprise to see that some went for insane money.

But not necessarily for the right reasons

WE can’t quite put our finger on what drew our attention to the eBay listing for this ‘stunning bike’. Is it the double bubble screen? The upside fork legs? The Battlax swinging-arm?
