Feast your orbs on the historic 1902 Rambler Model B, an extremely rare 100-year-old American motorcycle that’s been added to the lineup at Bonhams’ Las Vegas sale in January.
Until now part of the Indian Motorcycle Museum’s collection, it was built by Colonel Albert Pope’s American Cycle Manufacturing Company of New York.
While Indian has the distinction of being America’s first production motorcycle, Rambler launched just a few months after Indian’s introductory 1901 Camelback model and was offered for sale a full year before Harley-Davidson’s first commercial motorcycle.
Wearing its original paint from 110 years ago, the entire machine is in a complete “time capsule” state.
Climb aboard and ramble on…
