Jay Leno VMAX estimated at $100,000

TV star's 200bhp musclebike goes under the hammer October 10th

AMERICAN CHAT SHOW giant Jay Leno is donating a Yamaha VMAX to help a New York arts charity.

The TV host is donating his highly modified VMax motorcycle in aid of Bailey's Cafe community centre in Brooklyn.

"Bailey's Cafe is a wonderful arts program," said Leno. "Since I didn't have any Yamaha musical instruments to auction off, I thought I'd sell my Star VMax, which is made by Yamaha, to support the program."

It's estimated the bike could fetch $100,000 when it goes under the hammer on October 10th at the Barrett-Jackson auction at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay.
