Would You Buy This "Okada" For N340million? by AutoJoshNG: 1:59pm On Feb 05, 2018
Would you be willing to dole out a whooping N340m for this vintage motorbike?


Mind you, for that amount, the opportunity cost would be owning two fully-detached duplexes in Lekki.


Well, someone recently paid $929,000 ( approximately N340m) for this classic bike at an auction in Las Vegas.


The motorbike in question – a Vincent Black Lightening brand – is from a batch produced in 1951. It is one out of 30 that was made.


Perhaps, part of the reasons why “the Vincent” is such a collector’s delight is the rich history behind this model.


The Vincent Black Lightening was designed based on another motorbike brand – the legendary “Black Shadow”.


The Black Shadow was reputed as the world’s first super-bike. The Shadow became very popular after it outran the fastest car at the time – a Jaguar XJ120. At 122 mph, it thus became the fastest thing on wheels.



However, the Black Lightning was a technical improvement on the Black shadow. it was built with a more powerful engine (up from 55 hp to 70). But is the Vincent Black Lightening the most expensive motorbike ever made?


Well, it has the highest price ever paid for a motorcycle at an auction. However, some would argue that the Harley-Davidson FLH that Peter Fonda rode in Easy Rider and which was auctioned in October 2014 for $836, 337 is the most expensive.


It is said that the $836, 337 paid for that Harley-Davidson is equivalent to $1.18million at today’s rate.

No

But then again, I once bought a whole pack of tampons just to see what it looks like , then throw the whole thing away the next day.

So if I have like 70billion dollars, sure why not, At least I can sell it to another collector at a higher price after a few years unlike the tampons
