The American Motorcycle Company (Yale) 1910: this unrestored pre-WWI machine has been in the same family since before 1915 and has the documentation to prove it. It even includes the original owners manual.

1974 Münch Mammut TTS-E 1200
1974 Münch Mammoth TTS-E 1200: This particular bike, frame #246, was ahead of its time in every respect including its original pricetag (more than double the most expensive BMW at the time), has extreme provenance, extensive ownership records and fewer than 15,000 miles on its odometer. It is truly the world’s first superbike. Sadly there were only ever approximately 500 examples ever produced. The sale price includes the original owner’s handbook, and receipts and service records since new.
1978 Kawasaki Z1R TC/TC2 Turbo
1978 Kawasaki Z1R TC/TC2 Turbo: With 130hp, the Z1R-TC is one of only 500 made in its two-year production run, but it was the first production turbo motorcycle to hit the streets, several years before Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki joined the game. This bike gains its “TC2” designation from upgrades (original '79 black bodywork and all the factory mechanical parts of the TC2) made when this bike was only a couple of years from new, to model year 1979 specifications.
