Five bikes from Michael Jordan Motorsports’ history will be going up for auction January 12th-14th at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino during the Las Vegas Premiere Motorcycle Auction, reports Cycle News.
“We’re both honored and excited to have been entrusted with the presentation of these select Michael Jordan Motorsports team bikes for the first time at a public sale,” Donnie Gould, president of Auctions America by RM, told the news source. “Each represents an important chapter in MJM’s history and, in turn, presents an exclusive ownership opportunity for savvy collectors.”
The most sought-after bike in the collection will likely be a 2008 Suzuki GSX-R1000, which was used by Aaron Yates to win the 2008 AMA Superstock Championship. This motorcycle also includes a signature from the team owner, Michael Jordan.
Another GSX-R1000, this one ridden by Montez Stewart in 2005, features custom graphics that celebrate the Air Jordan line of shoes. Stewart’s 2004 Yamaha R1 will also be up for sale. The remaining two bikes were used by Jake Holden, and include two more GSX-R1000s, from 2006 and 2007.
More than 400 bikes in total will be offered at the auction, but these will likely draw the most interest from buyers.
